Flower Swap and Trip

Aloha everyone,
I just want to share with you the flowers I made for a flower swap I joined, started by my friend Linda.  My photography is not great, but can you see the very dainty swirly flourish? I picked up about three of these wonderful dies by Memory Box from A Place In Time.  They're so dainty, I love using them.  Just run them through your Bigshot.   I used crepe paper from Melissa Frances to make the flower and leaves and added glitter and rhinestones.  I used a pearlized cardstock I bought some time ago from Creations Unlimited, to cut out the flourish.  These aren't due until the last week of the month, but I'm going on a trip and have to make sure they get to Linda before I leave.
almost packed and ready to ship

I'm looking forward to visiting my BFF in Texas! I leave this Wednesday (ooh, that's tomorrow), and won't be back until the thirty-first.  Posting will be far and few between when I'm gone.  While visiting in Texas, we're going on a side trip to New Orleans.  So when we're there, I'll be visiting Cindy Adkins of Whimsical Musings.  I can't wait!
