To A Wild Rose

End of school year activities and parties and field trips (x 4), oh my! There is nothing like the whirlwind of the end of the school year to throw me right into a creative slump! I know there are mothers out there who do end of school year like a boss. I am not one of them! I am a wela (grandma) who is at least twice their age with at most half their energy! Nevertheless, I bow down to you, super mom! You rock!

Fast-forward a bit, the boys are on summer break and the dust is settling from all the end of school year frenzy. The lazy days of summer are creeping in and my creativity is still nowhere to be found! I was determined to find it so I grabbed and tossed a multitude of products on to my craft table and played! No rhyme or reason, just played! I did this for a few days. What was the result? Nothing that I'll post here, LOL! But I persevered and kept pushing. Finally, I could see a glimpse of my creativity and even managed to create a project! My creativity is still a little foggy but there is, definitely, hope!

For today's project, I use a gorgeous potpourri of product. First, I use the Stitched Lace Dies to create a gorgeous soft lace background. Then I use the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set along with the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch to create a beautiful tiny butterfly. And, finally, I use the To A Wild Rose Bundle to create the simply stunning roses. I love how it turned out!

Now, gather your supplies, join me in my craft room, and be inspired to transform paper into a little work of art.

I had so much fun creating this project to share with you. I hope you love it as much as I do! Don't forget to leave a comment below and let me know what you think of today's project. I would love to hear from you!
