Hey yall!!! How are ya?!! I hope all of you have had a great week so far! First, I want to apologize for not posting so far this week. I have been scrapping, but it has all been DT work that I am unable to share yet. Then, I took the day off yesterday for some much needed rest. I was majorly stressed out and just not feelin' the creative vibes at all. But it did me good, because I felt much better today. Mom and I online cropped via Skype tonite and had so much fun! I pulled out my May kit from Scrapbook Circle to play. I have had a svg on my computer desktop for months for a birdhouse that I just have been itchin' to use. So I decided to play with it tonite. I first cut the birdhouse out using the My Minds Eye Lush Green flocked patterned paper that was included in the kit. I then added a roof on the top using brown cardstock. After I had the base of my birdhouse finished, I decided the roof needed some dimension, so I added rows of cream colored lace to act as 'shingles'. I also incorporated some more lace, patterned paper, rhinestones, twine, and Crate paper chipboard. I added a little acrylic birdie that I have had in my scrappy stash forever. Last, I inserted a wooden dowel into the bottom and secured it with my hot glue gun. After it had dried, I inserted the whole piece down into a topiary we have in our home. I had so much fun with this! I was going to take the birdhouse out after photographing it, but I think I've decided to just leave it in for a while. Tee Hee! Here is the birdhouse....
(note...click on the pic to make it bigger so ya can see. Oooh, and excuse the quality of these photos. I took 'em inside tonite.)
