Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, also I am the first stop of the hop, so you are in the right stop.

My grandmother just recently passed away, and I know how deeply my father misses her, so I thought I would make my project revolve on a memory piece of Home Decor that he can look at and remember her fondly. I stamped the Honeycomb stamp set in Black Ink and fussy cut out the shapes, also stamping the shapes on the pattern paper from the For Always Paper Packet. Using the For Always Textiles, I cut strips and twisted them and twirled them into these pretty rosette flowers. Using the Licorice Epoxy Bubbles and the Pearl Badge Buttons, I added centers to the rosettes.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Darla of Caution Crafting is Contagious.
