Label Tulip part 2 and 2S4Y

When will this rain ever stop?? It seems like that's all we've had this week. Yesterday was our one break. And we definitely took advantage of it. Ryan went outside at dusk last night to catch fireflies. Watching him do this is one of my favorite things. I loved catching them as a child and seeing him participate in this rite of summer brings me such joy. Did you know that the bugs are only out for several weeks in the early summer when they are mating? There are lots of 'types' of fireflies and each has it's own 'signal'. The males fly around, while the females stay put. If a female sees the male flashing the correct signal, she flashes back letting him know she's a 'match'. Wouldn't it be nice if it were that easy for us?? ;)

So, first up is the second batch of my Label Tulip projects this month. This layout is the one I liked best. Ryan just learned how to climb a tree, so the page is about that. I used the wrapped wire from some Prima stars to make the branch for the bird.




This next page is about Ryan making Christmas cookies. I thought the Cosmo Cricket chipboard was perfect for it.




And finally, a fun card I made. I cut the flower from a sewing pattern, added Patina Glimmer Mist and some glitter, then finished it with a Cosmo Cricket chipboard center.




Here is my card made from this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch. I used the Tattered Angles Regal front frames and spritzed them with Lime Twist. Then I added some mica flakes and finished them off with Old Lace The paper is Little Yellow Bicycle, Making Memories and Jenni Bowlin. The flowers and pearls are Zva. The ribbon is SEI and the sticker is Melissa Frances.


Thanks ofr stopping by! Have a great day. :)
