Home Decor....

So I altered these candles a loooong time ago. Hmmmm...maybe about 3 years ago with some Basic Grey papers they don't even sell anymore, LOL! Think it was time for an update?

Norma send me some Pink Paislee Old School goodies to work with this month. The colors matched the earth tones in our living room perfectly so I grabbed these candles right away. Even brain commented that he was wondering when I was going to redo them, LOL!

All the supplies are from the FTLOA store including the ribbon, Jillibean Soup Canvas flowers and cuuuute butterfly.



For this candle...I used the Pink Paislee old school canvas borders for the flower. I just kept tucking in the scalloped border until it made a flower and then trimmed off the excess. Oh and the punch is from Martha Stewart. LOOOVE this..the lovely Joyce once again let me highjack her punches for the day ;0 Then I added the felt flower. Note to self: need more practice making these ribbon flowers, LOL!


Have a great week!

Got your comment, re: autism crop. Haven't been to many crops at all lately....finding it tougher to "lug all my stuff around". Heehee. If I'm in the area though, I may just pop in and say hi! (It's about 45 min from my place)
