Beautiful May

Hello, everyone!

The beginning of May always brings such lovely things to mind…the sweetness of flowers on May Day, Mother’s Day…and my anniversary!  So many things to celebrate…

My projects this month reflect the first two, at least…

First, a sweet little tussie mussie cone for a bouquet of flowers–a gift for a friend, perhaps…

A paper cone, wrapped with turquoise paper from the “Dimestore Vogue” Paper Sheets and Tags kit, it’s all ready to embellish with whatever strikes your fancy!  Here, I encircled it with a chocolatey brown crepe paper ruffle (from the same kit), dotted with Stickles for a bit of glitz.  Edging the crepe paper is a circling of pretty aqua tinsel

…and a simple little tag, also from the “Dimestore Vogue” collection, complete with a bit of pink Twirly Twine & a single flocked, vintage posy…

Next, a pretty little powder puff…a vintage puff found in a lovely aqua powder box I bought at an antiques shop last year…altered just a little bit for a Mother’s Day gift…

I used the Mother tag from the “Family Fun” Paper Kit, a sewing tag from the “Dimestore Vogue” kit, edged with a bit of Stickles, a vintage mother-of-pearl button & more pretty vintage posies & tied it all together with a pink Twirly Twine bow…

And last, but certainly not least, a little tribute to my beautiful mother…

Her one and only “glamor shot” was the focal point for my little layout.  Paper from the “Family Fun” kit, a bit of the beautiful aqua foil sheet (one of my favorite things!), again from “Dimestore Vogue“, a border of vintage mother-of-pearl buttons…

…and a pretty little rosette made with the chocolate brown crepe paper from the “Dimestore Vogue” kit, topped with a “button” from the same…some seam binding & Twisty Twine finish it off, along with a little tag using the pink sheet also from the “Dimestore Vogue” kit…and that’s about it!

Wishing you many beautiful & inspiring May days this month!

Julie

    Just had to say your mom was a BEAUTY! Love that picture.
    I also really like the powder box and puff- how cool that you were able to find that. I don’t think we can find such cool goodies here in NH, but I keep looking in case – lol
