Magical Monday - Fabric & Stitching

This week over at the Paper Cupcakes Challenge Blog this week Chelsea Barnes brings us this challenge. She want us to be super-uper creative this week and let's incorporate some fabric and stitching into our projects. For fabric you can think outside the box and use a fabric covered brad, make a flower out of fabric or just use a piece instead of pattern paper. So, let's see how creative we can be with fabric and stitching!

Well, this is going to be a quick posting I have been busy all weekend long and at home very little at all throughout the whole weekend. It is now 2:32 and I just finished the challenge posting and now I am here and then I am in bed!

I used the image "Sunday Afternoon" from Paper cupcakes. The material I used was nylon tulle. You can bearly see it, but it is there. All I did was just knot it and placed flower onto of it like a bow. It looks really pretty in real life, but because it is white tulle, it didn't photograph that well. Or maybe it is because I am exetremely tired. I colored my image with my Bic Mark-its and added chalk to the sky to give it the look I wanted. All the papers were scraps.

We had our fundraiser this past weekend and I was in charge. It was a spaghetti dinner and I might add it was a great success and the children were excellent in helping setting up, serving and tearing down. That was literally an all day affair. Today I went to a bridal shower mid day and you all know how that goes. Well, to bed with me, because I have to be up in 4 1/2 hours and to be honest I don't function too well on that!

Have a great week and if you stop by leave me a note I would love to hear from anyone!!
