Hi and Happy Monday everyone!! It has been crazy busy around here. My sweet hubbie was gone for 5 days on a baseball trip which meant that I was here with the kids myself. We had lots of sporting events and birthday parties and stuff going on. It was fun, but busy! I even missed baking for my Sweet Melissa Sunday group. I just couldn't fit it all in.
Today I want to share a wall hanging I made for my office at work. The April 3 Scrappy Boys Trio kit came with a chipboard album that I turned into a wall hanging for my office.
I loved the shape of the chipboard pieces. For the first piece, I painted it with crackle paint and I like how you can see the embossing design from the chipboard through the crackle paint.
I made some accordian flowers with the paper from Kaisercraft in the kit. I just love these colors. Before scoring the paper, I used my threading water punch on one side of the strip of paper. I then scored between the scallops and brought it all together.
After getting the hang of these flowers, they are really fun!! I cut the flourishes out using my Cricut.
I used some of my latest favorite photos of my kids at the park. My daughter's hair is all over the place, but I love it anyway!! This was fun to put together and I really love those accordian flowers. They are pretty bulky and I shy away from putting them in my scrapbookings, but I do love using them for altered items.
Hope you all had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!!
