The Shabby Tea Room #95 - Time Flies - Who Loves You?
I hope everyone had a fantastic New Year's Celebration! Both my kids were off partying with their friends so my hubby and I got to ring in the new year on our own! We had a quiet evening at home eating pizza and watching the celebrations on TV. I hate to admit it, but I fell asleep just before midnight! I think that's a first for me! We skipped the champagne in case we had to drive anywhere, but enjoyed ourselves just the same. I'm looking forward to 2012 and seeing all the beautiful new things this year has to bring!
Are you ready for another great inspiration photo from The Shabby Tea Room? How cute is this one? I love the branch with the butterflies and the owls "nested" on the frilly bed - so of course I had to play along. This bed looks fit for a princess who loves the outdoors. The branch reminds me of a dream catcher - only full of butterflies!
I started with the blue background and scored some lines in it to mimic the panelling in the background. I added some green ruffles for the quilt, and topped it off with a spread of owls - like the patchwork quilt on the bed. I couldn't resist blinging out the owls to give them some glam and more dimension. I used a Quickutz die for the actual branch, and a Sizzix die for the foliage. It was a branch with leaves - I trimmed off the leaves and added them one at a time. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterflies, and any patterned paper you see is just bits and pieces from my scrap box that has been rapidly growing.
