Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Yesterday we went to Leadville, Colorado to see the Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market. It was pretty disappointing though since there were only four booths and a sign that said no dogs allowed. Not good since we brought Sophie and Lily with us too. Thankfully the rest of the town was dog friendly though and we found a great antique shop to browse through. It was a nice little getaway out of the heat for awhile, it was only in the 70's up there. It has been in the low 100's down here for the last couple of days now with no rain in site. We really could use some moisture with all the fires but unfortunately that is out of our control. Hopefully Mother Nature will send us a soaker soon,
Today is also the 25th of the month which means it is time for the June Papertrey Blog Hop. The challenge this month was this photo.
The first thing that usually inspires me from these inspiration photos are the colors but I was not really like the colors this month so I chose to focus on the ruffles, pleats and floral pattern instead.
This is what I came up with
Continuing with my children's party themes I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make a Princess Crown. I started by creating and cutting out a crown with my Sillouette from digital floral paper. Next I created the ruffles from yellow crepe paper and my sewing machine then attached them to the crown. The pleated circle in the middle was also created with hot pink crepe paper then I attached a Harvest Gold Circle and added lots of rhinestones. A Spring Moss number 4 was added to the middle and covered with Angel Dust. Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon and some tiny crepe paper balls were added to finish it off. I have plans for other princess party decor to go with this crown so check back soon. That's all for now. I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with now. I hope the rest of your week is a good one and as always thanks for stopping by.
