Shower Decor

My son is getting married in two months! Wow - where has this year gone! The shower is this Saturday at my house so I have been busy making decorations! Beth's color is a pale Robin's egg blue. This is what I have made so far.






The tray was an recycle of an old breakfast tray I never used. I wanted to make it useable so I used paper flowers and stamps for decorations. These are some of my favorite photos of the two of them. I think they will enjoy it. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I saw PCC's MOnday inspiration and immediately knew what I wanted to do.

FOr some reason I saw flowers so went with them and a card.

Some fun doodling with paint markers. Lots of fun!

April Showers

It poured this morning and now that the sun is out I can see spring has made even more progress. The lilac buds are growing and my small daffodils are out!

But, the day did not go as planned. I went to the mall to yet again search for a mother of the groom dress. I hit the regular stores and tried on several, but nothing fit. Then I stopped at a few specialty shops - again nothing was what i was looking for. So discouraging. So in the middle of this not so very good day, I remembered I had started this canvas and finishing it would make me feel good and bring a smile to my face!

.This mood board definitely made me think of spring and flowers beginning to bloom. Thank you SGD.





 I was inspired by WendyVecchi who did a similar canvas. The flowers just seemed so bright and cheerful. This quote was perfect!





By the time I finished the sun was shining. I had ordered a dress on line. And I took a brisk walk which reminded me that the sun can shine in the middle of a bleak day!
I am also adding this to Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - April Showers. They do bring May flowers!!

Mother/Daughter Time

While visiting Jen in phoenix, she and I got to spend a few hours at her favorite place - As You Wish. It is a pottery studio. It took me forever to decide what to paint - a small plate - then  forever to choose a design - a tree with hearts. Once I finally made those decisions , we sat and painted. It was fun just to enjoy some downtime.

Magazine Monday Inspiration

This week's Monday inpsiration at PCC is all about Spring and Cleaning

I chose to make a card using Spring colors of green and pink., And cleaned out my scraps by using this retro piece of paper. 


Love being able to clean out my supplies!

Weather

Spring is here as evidenced by the 2 inches of rain we have received today:)


This is the table on our patio.

What better way to spend the afternoon than making this canvas. I thought of those fun rubber boots I have seen but do not own and how fun it would be to jump in the puddles.

And to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - April Showers.

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you have showers, I hope they clear and bring you sunshine!

Art Play

I made a card but I treated it more like a piece of art. I got some wonderful new stamps from Stampendous

Using the stamps and several colors of paint, I  made a wonderful background. I backed it with twine.


I stamped my sentiment and added it to the corner with more twine.

Adding this to Craftstamper April Color Challenge. I have greens and blues and yellows!

This was fun and I might have to do it again!
