Feminine Pretty

I wanted to create something pretty this weekend. My husband has been out of town for several days, and so I had the time to work on my paper crafting. As I browsed the Internet for a challenge, I came across Dawn's blog (color cue 11). She has a color challenge, that fit the bill: Aqua, Pink, White + any neutral. That sounded girl-y. But, I needed a little more push. So, I started looking at some of my favorite challenge blogs, and looked at JUGs . I haven't played in their challenges for a while, and this was my perfect opportunity. Their challenge is a to create a 3-D flower (JUGs69); Perfect!
So, like I said, my husband has been out of town. This translates to: I can craft all-day/all-night, in any space, and leave my stuff anywhere. Come on crafters, you know what I mean.
Ok, back to my entry. PTI has a wonderful Aqua (Aqua Mist) and a super pretty pink (Sweet Blush). SU! has wonderful stamps, crochet trim, great Crumb Cake card stock, pretty half peals, and this new DSP First Edition. So, I got all my favorite products out, and started to play. I didn't want to just make a card, so I altered a notebook, and made a card. (The notebook I'll show you today, the card I'll post tomorrow.) Without further ado, here is my entry:

Now, you tell me, wasn't it worth the wait? This is one of those works, that isn't completed in a hour, or even an afternoon. I tinkered with this literally all weekend. I'd move something, add something, and it still didn't look right. So, I'd leave it, and come back to it, in a few hours, or the next day. I'm really proud of my creation, I love it, and I hope you do to.
I used several different products from many different manufactures. So, if you have a question, or you need information on a product, or you want to know how I did something, let me know @
Please post me a comment. Let me know what you think, and also, your process of creating.
