Friends are Flowers...

Happy Labor Day!

I'm here today to share a semi quick project on how to gift a picture. I say semi-quick because for me nothing is ever 2 minutes but for some of you that don't dwell 10 hours on every little step (lol) you should be done in 30 minutes.

On the outside, it looks like a card. You can decorate as you please. In fact you probably don't need to add much to it but sometimes I cant stop adding embellishments. :) I choose to use the Brand New Boho Anya. Isn't she the sweetest? I just love her Boho Chic look and I just love that she makes me use colors (yellow and green) that are outside my comfort zone. For this Boho Anya, I thought I would paper piece her hair and skirt, add more Chic to her look. Lol. My sentiment (which I think is perfect for this Anya) comes from Crafty Sprouts Besties for Life set (this set is currently Sold Out but will be shipping again mid month).

To decorate the inside, just add a few layer of cs. Then you can attach your picture and write a friendly note. Easy peezy. Lol! 

I will be playing:
Sketch Saturday #171. PaperPlay Challenge - I created my own mini roses. Some Odd Girl - Paper Piece. RCC18 - All Tied Up. Scrapbookaholic by Abby- Last Challenge: Anything Goes. My Craft Spot - Friends are the Best.
