Hello!! Is anybody out there??

Hello all you wonderful crafty souls!!! Among the things that have been keeping me busy these past few months is an upcoming wedding of my dear friend. I am the matron of honor and I just finished her gift. I don't know when I will post again or get around to all you other beautiful bloggers but I wanted to share this shadow box, I am so pleased with the outcome.
No surprises here....my usual loves went into this creation. I used some K&Co papers, prima flowers, ribbon, pearls, frames, stickles and pearl paints along with some of my fav cricut cuts.

I made a little flower out of tulle and a brooch using the graphically speaking clock to set the date of the wedding, a wonderful dollar frame from michaels, leaves from a child's year that I distressed with chalk and ink....also used a child's year to cut the mats for the invitation and the photo. The ribbon is ribbon from my friend that is being used in the wedding.

I just love the way these re purposed pearl beads look surrounding the photo mat and looped through the flowers.

What would a Sandy creation be without butterflies cut from sentimentals from sheet music and accented with black card stock. Live laugh love is from home accents. United and Love are both cut from Heritage.

The little orange flowers are re purposed earrings and the rose buds are my paper interpretation of a ribbon tutorial you can find on the ever inspirational blog What A Beautiful Mess. Lisa always has such lovely tutorials!!!
The flourishes are from home decor.

Forever is cut from home decor and accented with some pearl paint.
Well off I go....I hope to find more time in the near future for blogging and creating....miss you all so much!!!!!
