May Flowers Blog Hop – TEAM L.I.


Hello again, it’s another blog hop with the Linked In Team! If you are here, you should be arriving from Elizabeth’s page.
This month, our theme is May flowers (because April showers bring May flowers!) and I’m keeping with my wedding theme too. I’ve made a stunning shadow box featuring my beautiful friend Stephanie. She’s simply gorgeous, and so are her wedding pictures! I loved working this one in particular. She also makes beautiful whimsical jewellery that she sells in her shop AChildOfWhimsy. So I figure she’ll love this project!

I used a wooden shadow box from Heidi Swapp. I used a shimmer pink mist to add colour to the wood and embellished it with shabby chic fabric flowers, paper flowers, pins, a flag, and a few more embellishments. I also stamped the words Today Tomorrow Always at the top.  I find that it came together beautifully and will definitely be showcasing it in my upcoming shows for brides to see!

Here are some more close-ups.


I bought this bow from my friend Laura at ElanasBows. I just love how perfect it is! Just what I needed to add that extra special touch that I was looking for.
