Well, that amazing Melissa Phillips is having another challenge on her blog. She's giving away another fabulous Jillie Willie item. Can I just tell you how much I love Jillie Willie stuff? If you haven't checked her out, you must. There is a bag there that would just be awesome if it had my scriptures in it. For those of you who don't know me from way back in the day...pink is my favorite color...Panther Pink that is, and Jillie Willie has a lot of it. It just screams JOLENE! This is the apron Melissa is giving away for her challenge.
Pretty cute isn't it? I'm telling you, you have to check out her stuff at jilliewillie.com
Say hello to my scripture bag while you're there would ya?
Melissa's challenge was to create a card that had some sort of pocket, buttons, ribbon, stripes, and the color pink. I love working on challenges but I get a little nervous when I start working on a challenge posted by someone who's work I LOVE. You know, like Melissa. She's only incredible. One day, I would just like to work up the nerve to ask her what her schedule is. It amazes me what she gets done. I would love to be a fly on the wall at her house one day and see how she does it. Anywho...I have had a crazy day with my little two year old and so it was nice to finally sit down and work on this. It was great fun. Here's what I came up with.The little green ribbon"stems" are sewn down on both sides making a little pocket for the sucker sticks to slide into and the "leaves" are tied around the sucker sticks. I used glue dots to wrap the edges of the wrappers around to the back of the suckers, then the suckers are stuck to the flower backs with glue dots. I also used glue dots to attach the threaded buttons to the front of the suckers. All of the patterned paper I used was really old My Mind's Eye, Kaleidoscope. Yes, I still have that stuff in my scraps. I seem to use it alot. The letter stickers are Making Memories and the letter rub-ons are American Crafts.
I think it turned out pretty cute. Well, I had better clean off my desk and get to the rest of my list today. It's getting kind of late in the day. Have a Happy Day!
