Happy Anniversary!

My parents 25th wedding anniversary is coming up in a couple weeks, and I want to make sure it is extra special for the both of them. Everything I hope is perfect, right down to the little details. Everything is silver and white there is a little black in a couple things but just a couple touches. The party is on the 10th of September, I will post pics from the day so you can see how it all came together.

I made these really cool toparies for the party I have made a total of 4, 2 small and 2 large. Only 2 of them are finished but the others are very close. I used white tulle, silver netting folded them and used a toothpick to attach to the ball wrapped the stem with silver ribbon, added some small white flowers, and some gems they turned out great.

One of the big ones, put white glass rocks in the bucket, and tied a silver bow around the bucket.

Partially finished, almost there. The toothpicks sure tore up the tips of my fingers.

Close up of the unfinished one. Kinda looks like a person with crazy hair ;)

Close up of the finished one. You can see the gems and the small white flowers. They really turned out great. I was worried about them looking too handmade and not elegant enough.

                                 These are the small ones.

There actually was a wedding challenge out there that I am entering these into. So wish me luck.

Back to School!

It has been so long that I have crafted. I am so sorry to those who follow me. Summer time is so busy for us. We have a boat and just recently got jetskis so any chance we can get out we head out to one of our many lakes that we are so blessed to live with in an hour. The only down side is, makes for not being able to create something fun. I have really missed out on a lot of challenges out there.
I always make something for my sons teacher on the first day of school. So I made a card and a fun bag for his new teacher this year. My son is almost 12 and is in 6th grade (ugh! my baby is growing up) I wanted to give him a fun bag filled with fun stuff for school for his first day back. So I made him a card and a fun bag and filled with treats, gum, pencils, backpack clip.
There were lots of fun challenges for Back To School, so am able to finally enter a couple challenges and give some great people in my life some fun stuff!

Here is the card I made for his teacher. I used the Wild Card Cart for the base card, The apple I believe is from the Preserves cartridge (I hope i'm not wrong) pho stitching around the edges some cute buttons, and a red ribbon( this is my favorite type of ribbon).
close up of the teacher card. I love how it turned out.

I wanted to make a little bag for his teacher, so I used the same apple, cut the back 2 school form the calender designers cart to make this cute tag for the front of the bag.

Here is the final product. I put everything in this cute bag for him to give to his teacher. Of course she loved it.

:Here is the card and bag of goodies I made for my son for his first day Back 2 School.
The card is from the Wild Card cart, the scallop is also from Wild Card and the sentiment is from the Stamping cart. All the pattern paper for both projects are from the Imaginesence school line along with all the sticker embellishments. I added buttons and of course some red ribbon to top off the card. Turned out so cute if I don't say so myself.

For the bag I used the Calender Designers cart matted on some different colors did some pho stitching and added to the bag I filled with some fun goodies for him. He loved it when he opened it. I think this will be a tradition for us from here on out. To give him something fun the night before his first day of school.
