Tour de Freaks ~ April


Welcome to another wonderful Tour de Freaks blog hop.

If you're already been hopping, then you've probably come from the fabulous Gretchen Barron's site.  We missed Gretchen last month and are so happy to have her back!

The theme for April consist of anything "Floral, Wedding or Mother's Day".  I pretty much covered all three categories at one time.  I've been on a roll creating these hand-made flowers.  This would be such a beautiful accent topper for a wedding or gift for mom.

Here, take a look:



Aren't those colors yummy?   Here's a different angle.  The flowers are placed diagonal on the box to give it a bit more interest.



....and a close-up: 



The flowers were made with the Birds and Blooms sizzlit.  I can't get enough use from that die!  The center bead is from the Pretties kit.  The flowers were held to a piece of floral wire.

I hope you've enjoyed my little project.  Now, hop on over to LeeAnn Greff's blog and see her fabulous designs.  Selecting the link below will transport you there.
