I cut strips of paper and placed them where I wanted them on the page, then I cut out circles of varying sizes. I filled the circles with the fun Lily Bee chipboard pieces and topped them with Prima flowers and rhinestones. I used Shimmerz paint and Spritz to color the Prima flowers.
I saw a fun beading technique on Lollychops' fantastic blog, and I decided to give it a try. I embroidered around the circle and added seed beads as I stitched. Lolly did it on fabric and felt, and I figured that it would work just as well on paper.
And one other thing to share today. This is something that makes me VERY happy. I have a nightly ritual . . . after we put our girls into bed and I settle down for some "me" time, I have a small bowl of Dreyer's Light ice cream. As I mentioned a few posts ago, our old fridge/freezer has been on the fritz for a while, so I've had to contend with soft, mushy ice cream every night . . . which is NOT the way I like it. We finally got a new refrigerator a couple days ago, and the freezer works like a charm! The first thing I did was go out and stock up on my favorite Dreyer's ice cream flavors. Here's a little glimpse . . .
Have a fantastic week!!!
