OH, SO, FUN!! Show and Tell Friday!

Kelli-show and tell FridayIt's show and tell Friday, so get ready to see some great things at great sites! Go to Kelli's to see who is joining us today


I am so loving these!!!
I got the music paper idea from Diane (Diane Knott's Musings),
and she had the paper flowers tutorial site listed there too.
Cute with a little greenery
And this one, well i got creative here. I put a piece of lace tablecloth in our copy machine, and copied it off onto a piece of paper.
Walla!!! lace paper! (probably not the first one to come up with this, but i thought i was pretty clever for a moment anyway).
Cute with greenery, and love it on an old glove.
I think i will add a little sparkly button to this one too.
I'm getting all kinds of fun ideas.

Guess you know I'll be doing more of these.


Oh, these are the nests made out of the dead allysum i told you about. There are so quick and easy. You can use Spanish moss the same way pretty much.

Be sure to click on the lace paper so you can see it better.

Blessings, and have fun!!

Hi BJ, I love those paper flower nests! Diane is having a giveaway, so I signed up. LOL You know...every idea leads to another. I was thinking...wouldn't those be pretty if you could change the pattern a little to make heart shaped petals...you could use hymn music or lace...even the tiny prints or solid colors...and over that write or add printed strips...I Believe...Jesus Loves Me...Heaven Bound...things like that...and then market them as...New Beginnings From The Heart Of The Believer? Oh...you know my mind has to take things apart and play with them...just a thought. I do love them, though.

What a great idea. I love these. I never would have thought to copy my tablecloth.

What a fantastic idea. So Spring like yet still quite feminine in nature and perfect for accenting. Wonderful.

My Show n Tell this week isn't much, but I did post a little...a little birdie. Happy Friday, happy weekend.

I absolutely love your little nests. You are very creative. I have decorated little nests from craft stores before but nothing as lovely as yours. After seeing all your ideas I want a copy machine.

Again, these are just the prettiest little nests and have loved looking at them.
