Paper Blooms #5 - Inspiration and....

... something to cheer my Daughter up as she is poorly!

My poor Sarah has Tonsillitus which isn't unusual but she had her Tonsills out about 2 years ago so to help cheer her up I decided to use this challenge to make something for her bedroom.

The challenge at Paper Blooms this week was to take inspiration from this picture of Leah's dishes, they say vintage and Laura Ashley to me so I got out my K & Co. Hannah papers and set to it.

This is what I made her

Not the best picture so here is each piece in more detail

Cameron is Sarah's Boyfriend

Dean is Sarah's Brother, my Husband and I only have Dean and Sarah together

and this is her 'Daddy'

I took a selection of photo's that were taken at the weddings of each of our 3 sons and printed them quite small, most of the photo's were of her as a Bridesmaid.

I took 2 squares of Acetate and puched a hole at each side at both top and bottom, the heart is wood and as luck had it I already had this cut out so I painted it with Ivory Laura Ashley paint and covered it with paper, edged all round with a gold Krylon pen.

I decorated the heart and each piece of Acetate with papers, flowers and computer generated sentiment, added the photo's and tied the whole thing together with Ribbons.

If you haven't been across to Paper Blooms yet you really should go and have a look, its quite a new challenge blog but the DT work is fab and they have had some great challenges so far, go on take a look, have a go, its always good to try something new.

Well Sarah has just got up and she loves it, so I am glad it has made her feel a little happier, hope you like it too!

AW! how awful is that to have your tonsills out and still get bother, what a shame. Give her some off my magic xxxxxxxxxxxx's, they work for my children and grandchildren. I am sure your gift cheered her up, you have put such a lot off work into it. Hope Sarah is feeling better soon. Hugs. Avril xx
