Wobbling white rose

Happy Friday.
It's my day to post for Action Wobbles.
I altered a composition journal for it.

I got this adorable paper at an outlet while in vacation. Then I added my washi tape to cover the binding. The aqua is sticky ribbon from close to my heart. Then the white rose is from michaels and it is on the wobble. I didn't put a name on it, because I'm not sure who I'm going to give this to.
Don't forget to enter the Action Wobbles challenge anything goes and the Pinque Peacock bling challenge. I'm entering this in both challenge.

Bridal shower favor and decorations

Today I'm brining you the next part of the shower decorations. We made a 2 different favors, one for kids, and one for grown ups. I found the spoon one on pinterest. Here is my shower board.


So we did 3 different recipes tied to the wooden spoons. For the kids we did candy :)

So the wooden spoons we had hearts from another project and just added the sentiment and tied. Same with the candy bars wrapped them in paper and added the heart. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom.

Here are the prizes for the games.

 This hung on the door.
We had people bring recipes. This is how we set the table up.  Everyone had a great time and liked their prizes and favors. I forgot to take some pictures of the other decorations but it's okay you get the idea ;)

Vintage memory board

Hi everyone
I have a memory board to share. I was in an exchange and the person I made this for likes vintage things and she wanted her board to be blues and neutrals. This was so tough cause I don't make vintage styled things.  So here is what I created.


I found the door at a Habitat for Humanity store and knew it would be a perfect vintage board. My dad helped my cutting wood the door is attached to and drilling the holes for me. All the hardware is original.  I raided my mom's lace collection which included this vintage lace. We are pretty sure this lace was part of my grandma's craft stash and possibly my great grandma's.  Here are some close ups.

I made this flower by wrapping lace around. The bling in the center was an earring that was my great grandma's.
So I threaded the blue lace through the holes of the cream and stapled them to the board. I made the paper flowers from a spellbinders die.
I hope my partner likes it. I'm waiting to hear :)

Hello my name is

  Hi and Happy Friday!
I have an altered notebook to share today.
I picked up some mini composition notebooks and knew I was gonna cover them. I picked up this cute paper at an outlet store in Michigan.  I used Modge Podge to cover it. The hello my name is was part of a sheet of paper. I cut that square out and put it on an Action Wobble.  I just have to decide what name to put on it.
