A Tutorial Re-Post, because...

because I'm in the middle of making another Bird Wedding-Cake-Topper and you've seen WAY too many photos of those.
Nothing else exciting is going on here this week, so......
A Blast From the Past:



I'm just going show you my steps in photo-form because I had no instructions. I Just made it up as I went.



I used my Tim Holtz disc for the picture of the little girl. I just printed her off.
The strings holding up the cloud and moon went up and through the cardboard above, then I taped them down on top. I distressed the paper a bit and added stamps and postmark stickers.
Christmas earrings I got for 75% at Target after the holidays. I knew I would use them in my crafting.





Below, a very sloppy job of Mod Podge and tissue paper on the back, but it sure was a fast way to cover everything.
Clear as mud? This project took a LONG time, but I enjoyed it. Let me know if you try it too. Have a good weekend.

You make everything look so easy! These are the kinds of things I let other people make and I buy. This was particularly sweet, ML!

Fabulous...I think I could do that. Fly me to the moon was one of my dad's all time favorite songs and I love it too. I love it so much, I feel like I was born at the wrong time. I would have loved to be spooning with my honey to that music!

Thinking of you and this wonderful world of blogging. Who would ever think, we all would connect and be friends?

Bless you, I think of you often my far away friend.
