I love these and I got the idea from Kathy Ortas, she's amazing.

I decided to be an engineer and build this from chipboard.  Not bad I would say!

You know it I had to incorporate my flowers,

DAY 1 of Everything Vintage Hop

Hey, crafty ladies thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I am so thrilled to be a part of this blog hop.  This was my very first blog hop, so I am super pumped.

I made for you a truly aMAIzing Vintage Mannequin Tag.  It has been embossed using scripture embossing folder, I used Prima Flowers, and a fabric butterfly that I made  myself or at least my Prima take on the fabric butterfly.  I have painted, glimmer misted the cardstock and chipboard.  I added the Tim Holtz Mannequin, which I dressed with BoBunny Ribbon Collection and some Prima Bling.  I painted the mannequin with a paint mixture using all Liquitex paints and Staz On!  I just love the way it turned out.
So, I hope you enjoy please tell them me what you think.

GRAND PRIZE Vintage Flower Spray!!!!
Yup that's right some lucky person gets to keep my Vintage Flower Spray.

Inspirational Soul Journal - Ustream Tutorial

Have you ever felt inspired by something?  Have you ever had life struggles and just wanted to express those struggles through your crafts?  Do you think you create more when you are experiencing difficult moments, or do you think you have creativity melt downs? 

As crafters/artist we all have a story to tell through our work.  I know that I create flowers, because growing up my mom always had a green thumb.  She could make anything that seemed dead grow and bloom.  She could work magic with flowers and she loved them dearly.  I on the other hand, can't get flowers to bloom, grow, or stay alive long enough to enjoy them.  So, in honor of my mother who past away from cancer in 2008, I make these paper flowers as a way of saying, I can't grow them, but I can make them.

My family is my inspiration and the more I create, the more I understand how special I am to have them in my life.

So, I have came up with an Inspirational Soul Journal and it something that as crafters we can use to reflect back to our thoughts or should I say "what was I thinking moments"!  This journal tells a story about ourselves and how we are as a person and what we see ourselves as. 

So, join me on November 19th at 6pm Central time to create this wonderful Inspirational Soul Journal that will hold our personal thoughts, ideas, and personal life reflections.  As a member of Creative Cafe and Scrap N Pretty you will be able to view the FREE online Tutorial on how to make this beautiful inspirational journal.
