Kiwi Lane Designs Blog Hop


Welcom to my blog and thanks for joining the KLD hop for this month.
I was sent the Playtime accessory set.

The dragonfly caught my eye and I decided to use it with a bit of glitter and shine. First I traced the dragonfly on transparency and just the wings on glitter netting. Then I traced the dragonfly 3 times on blue patterened paper and 3 times on gold glitter netting.
~ dream ~
To form the flowers I tucked the "head" under the body and crimped the paper so that there was no gap between the wings. I stacked the gold netting on top of the blue paper and then added purple Stickles and a black center gem.
 
Grab yourself a set of these great designer templates and see how you are inspired!!!

4th of July Surprise

Paper Girls Challenge Blog Drill #62:
Jessica is offering us this template for inspiration.
I chose to use the left vertical strip.
I didn't have any "official" 3x4 cards so I cut two pieces of scrap paper to 3x4 and cut stars into the top one. I also cut my photo to a 3x4 size.
~ 4th of July Surprise ~
These beautiful lily's were left by previous renters.
They bloomed on the 4th.
What a lovely thing to wake up to!
I used Page Drafts Sketch 33.1 for a little more inspiration.
