Happy Saturday

In between loads of laundry this afternoon I was able to do a little bit of scrapping. I stuck in the 6th season of NCIS & scrapped away.Just a cute pic of Rocky I snapped one morning. I was trying out a new technique here.....see the cute little blue dotted flower? You cut/punch out 6 small circles......use one as your base, crimp/pinch the other 5, add a dab of tacky glue & I clipped them with clothes pins until they dried. Then you just assemble them onto the base circle & add a button or brad for a center. I love how it turned out. Will definitely be making some more of these!!
Just a very simple pocket page to showcase pics from our Valentine party & it also gives me a place to save all those cute little Valentine cards I received. Note the OLD Rebecca Sower tag I used.....does anyone remember those or still have any?

And here are a couple of little hooky flowers I was playing around with this evening. I love the shawl/wrap thingie that Lucy is making using these flowers & I've been hunting all over trying to find a pattern for them. I found one CLOSE to hers & gave it a whirl first. Really easy & quick & I like how it turned out.
Just a little while ago, I found another similar flower on a blog, so I eye-balled it & this is what I came up with.
Here they are together. I really can't decide which one I like the best. They were both really easy & quick to do. I'm thinking of doing these in some Attic24 colors & joining them into a scarf. Was thinking they would make pretty Christmas presents for this coming year.

Pretty projects! Love the paper folding, one of my fav techniques right now. :-)
