BC Handmade Spring Flowers Blog Hop

We are having our First Blog Hop of the new season today and our theme is "Creating Handmade Spring Flowers"  On each blog you will find lots of incredible projects and ways to create and use spring flowers that you can make yourself!  In order to win our Grand Prize be sure and collect the kinds of flowers made on each blog and send the list to teresa@bestcreation.us.  Also be sure and leave comments along your way on each of our DTs. blogs and especially on the Best Creation blog at the end of the hop.  Be sure and check out Best Creation Blog for the list of prizes you are going to win.

My handmade spring flowers is made from Sizzix Tim holtz flower die and made into a rossette.  I layered the 4 pieces  of the same  cut flowers,  brushed with some opal dust for more glitter.  I used glitter dot paper and mixed with sweet love papers.

Aren't they just gorgeous?


And here they are on a lay-out:  "Sweet Love"

I used Best creation Valentine papers in creating this page and added ephemera from the hotel we stayed.  I did a lot of fussy cutwork here.
More close-ups:


Here's the biggest die on a stick:  A sweet little valentine gift for a special friend! 

And now, you should be hoping on to Brittny and her gorgeous flowers!

Happy Hopping!
