Click on the link above and Come hang out with me on my youtube channel. I have a video up of this flower. Jewels from The Jewel Box had an awesome tutorial on this technique of making your own Prima flowers. This was my first attempt at it and I think, minus a few minor mistakes, it turned out BEAUTIFUL.. what do ya'll think?
I'm sorry I've been missing for a week. My broken toe has kept me down but I'm up and moving again (slowly) so I'll be looking forward to catching up on everything and catching you all up on what's been happening at Creative Endings!!!
                                                                              SWAP TIME:
I am thinking of hosting a monthly swap starting next Monday. I am wondering how many of you ladies would like to be a part of this. Each swap will cost (in total with shipping) no more than 5.00. We can use items we already have and be able to enjoy each others creativeness and fun! The way it will work  for this month is we will be doing "TAGS". I'm sure you have all done a swap at one time or another but for those of you who haven't... THEY ARE SO MUCH FUN!!! I will be hosing it this time and if you all like it we can start a swap group and we can take turns as the host for those of you who might be interested. I think it will be neat if the host comes up with the swap item, but if you are not comfortable with doing the theme we can submit a list of things or themes for a swap an we can just start at the top and work our way through the submitted and agreed upon themes.  For this one I thought since Halloween is pretty much coming up quick it would be too hard to get tags made, sent and back to you all before Halloween so I thought we could decorate tags with a Christmas theme. What do ya'll think? I love Christmas and I love tags (I'm sure we ALL do) so I think this will be awesome!!! The way it will work is we will each decorate a tag and then you will mail them to me (but keep 1 that you made for yourself) and then I distribute the tags back to you. You will end up with a tag from EACH lady in the swap. These are so fun ladies! I've been a part of 7 through scrapbook.com and I've hosted 3 and they've all turned out SO GREAT! So... what do you think? Let me know!! I am hoping to get tags mailed to me by November 11th so that I have time to distribute them back to each of you and you will have them by December 1st.
Comment and let me know what you think. Don't be shy... everyone has their own unique way of scrapping and ALL are welcome. Newbies, Oldies and everyone in between. I think this is a great way for all of us to participate in something fun and get to know each other better. I will post the official rules and directions Sunday night (if there is enough interest) and then we can get started SCRAPPIN' our TAGS!!! I can't wait!!!
 

Hugs ladies and Be Blessed!!
Love,
Brook
