Hello everyone and welcome to Brenda's Scrap Place, I hope you enjoy your time here having a look around. I hope your Mothers Day was as wonderful as mine was. I got to spend the day with the three most wonderful people in my life. My beautiful Mum, Helen and my two very handsome boys Riley and Harley.
I would like to share with you the keepsake box I made for Mum.Inside it the boys placed a lovely Grandma pen to fill out her hospital meals form, card, letter and small drawing, special little tag made by me and some Jelly Beans (She is allowed a couple when her sugar drops to low from the steroids.) She was one happy Grandma/Mum and that made my day.
Now for my Keepsake Box that I made for my post over at Megs Garden.
I have created it out of the ' Forgotten Meadows' collection. I love the flowers on these papers so much. They are beautiful, pinks, mauve, creams and many more colours too.
After placing the patterned paper on the top I decided to place some flowers over the top and let the flowers on the patterned paper flow out from behind them. The flowers I chose to use are the Velvet Pansy and leaves, small paper white and cream roses, paper Azaleas and a white Heirloom flower. The picture of the lady is from the Vintage Beauties Strips and after I have cut out the two different sizes I have mounted them on some of the patterned paper. Also on the top I placed a bronze flower.
I inked the edge of the patterned paper with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. The stems for my flowers I twisted in glued them coming from behind the flowers.
I used a pink Fusion to colour the edge of the box lid and the placed some off white lace around it. I then fussy cut the butterflies from the patterned papers.
I hope you have enjoyed my post for Meg's Garden. I hope you have the time to hop over to the blog and have a look at what some of the other ladies have been up to and that we can inspire you a little.
Until my next post good health and happy crafting to you.
