Spring is here, or is it?

As I look out my window this morning I see the sun and it looks really wonderful outside, that is until I look at the temperature. What is up with the weather? They are calling for snow for the next 4 days in our's Spring.....someone didn't get the memo! I have pictures of my grandson, Logan, helping the guys take down a dead tree in their yard. They were too cute and I had to scrap them.

I used some wood veneer, how appropriate, from the company Trees to Treasure and loved how it turned out. I took my vintage paper ink and rubbed it on the tree to darken the tone somewhat, used the banner to place a name to the title, and the bird and word bubble veneer is from Micheals recollection brand. It is placed on the wood background paper. It worked well with the story and pictures.

Last Thursday, Mia was over to create her banner for her first Holy Communion in April. I took pictures of her working on her piece sewing. She loves learning new crafts and I love teaching her.

This is the finished banner, Mia sewed on the buttons, the grape stem and sewed on the leaf, she helped glue on the jewels on the chalice also. The wheat was difficult so I did that and then I had to paint the letters, Heidi Swapp ghost letters with pink nail polish. Worked well I think. Have a great week!
