Sunflowers Everywhere..........

Good morning everyone!  Friday has rolled around once again and I'm here to share another project with you before we jump into the weekend.  I'm making boxes for the nursing home and I am having so much fun just letting my creative side run wild!  In the coming days I will share some of them with you just for fun.  After all, this journey of mine has become about doing what I want when I want.  When I said I would make these boxes, I didn't realize I was going to have so much fun!


I just love these pretty sunflowers from Heartfelt Creations.  They are so much fun to color and shape and did you notice these cute little lady bugs?


Here is a close up of the top of the box and another cute little ladybug!  The center of the flowers is a combination of seed beads and glitter and Gala Glitz colored with Ink to make a wonderful medium for flower centers.


A good close up of the front of the box.  The pretty bows are seam binding colored with Orange Marmalade Distress Ink so they match the flowers.

I have to admit, I went a bit overboard with this one and almost didn't stop decorating it.  There comes a point when it's just over kill.  Hope I didn't get to that point with this one.

Well that's all for me this morning.  Hope you have a great day and that you enjoy your weekend!
