Tag (LuvLeeScrappin) & Flowers

Hey Now:

Third post this week!!!! Are you amazed, because I am.  So let me give you the background first on the latest crave.  Last November, we were EXTREMELY slow at work and I started searching for 'shabby chic projects".  I have always loved the look as well as the use of colors (pinks, mint greens, light blues, etc. I have always been intimidated to create a shabby chic/vintage project.

While searching I found 5 ladies that do an AMAZING job on shabby chic/vintage projects.  Here are the links to their blogs and youtube channel names:

Arlene - Butterfly Kisses Designs - youtube channel name: mybutterflykisses12
Bona -  Keep On Scrappin - youtube channel name: livelovescrap
Juliana - I Luv Vintage Scrap - youtube channel name: ILuvVintageScrap
Leanne - Luv Lee Scrappin - youtube channel name: luvleescrappin
Leonie - My Passion for Paper - youtube channel name: MyPassionForPaper

I am pretty sure most of you already follow them, but wanted to provide the information just in case.

I know there are probably more craftanistas out there that create this type of projects, but these are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES, love love love them!  I am really starting to sound like a stalker, not good! LOL! 

So Leanne from Luvleescrappin did an auction of her projects and I won the TAG, I was super happy and seriously doing a Happy Dance.  Her work is AMAZING, I love it.

I received my package yesterday and below are some pictures for you to see.  All I can say is OMG the pictures DO NOT due it justice.  It is SOOOO BEAUTIFUL.  I love it, so much I actualy cried.  I know... I know, but I did.

Front of the Tag! Wow!

Look at the Dress Form she created a skirt out of ribbon, a belt out of ribbon and pearl trim, and the necklace kills me. Double WOW!!

The hand mirror OMG!! Such details!!

The flowers (beautiful) and I believe she paint the bottom lace brown, it came out fabulous!

And of course the back is finished beautifully!

Please go and check out her work on her blog as well as her youtube videos, super talented!

I must confess, because of Leanne and Leonie, I was inspired to do the flowers below, and I have to say it was fun! I am so happy with the results.  Thank you Leanne and Leonie for sharing and teaching us how do create this beautiful flowers. 

I added sticklers to it (saw it on one Leonie's videos)

You basically go from pedals to a beautiful flower!

My next project will be creating my own box pleaded ribbon!  Wish me luck!
