Mod Podge flowers

Good Friday evening. I've been missing in action most of the week due to a sick child and another in afternoon summer camp. Whole day summercamp is a mother's dream but a half day leaves you no time to do much of anything except shop. If you know me, you know I LOVE to shop especially for scrap booking stuff but I had so much to do at home that it was a little of a pain and now the boy wants to go back again next week for half days.  We'll see????

I wanted a layout for our anniversary a year ago (It's taken me that long to scrap the pictures.) that was feminine yet mescaline. I was going to use hearts but thought that was too feminine so I tried the flowers and just kept working with them.

I discovered the other night that when you paint Mod Podge on fabric designed paper, it makes the paper look like real fabric up close. It was hard to get a good picture to prove it but take my word for it, it does.

I used Stickle's glitter glue to outline each flower. I maybe could have added a brad instead of more of the glitter but that great idea came to me after I had put the glitter in the middle and piled it on so it was tough to jam a brad through. Yes, I have a crop-a-dile but that's back in Tucson. It's hard crafting in two different places. haha

I stated earlier that I didn't want it to look too feminine so I added some paper strips I cut up and layered next to my husband's picture. My husband even liked the layout and that's good since he could care less about my passion for scrapbooking. Now if it was computers.....

 I couldn't think of anything romantic to say for my journaling so it is something plain. That's what happens when you wait a year to scrap your photos. The letters are cut out with my Cricut.

 Have a great weekend and I'll see you on the29 again blog hop on Monday. : )Lorby
