~ A fathers love ~

This is one the sweetest pics I have of my DH and little Matthew. You know what it's like in those early days with a new baby when no-one gets sleep and when mom or dad usually fall asleep before baby does when putting them down..........
I just LOVE all the new Prima papers, they're absolutely gorgeous and were perfect for this photograph.

Again I couldn't help myself, I just had to make at least one bloom myself so for this LO I chose the Organza flower by Alicia Thommas on the Sew4home website. Here's the link
These are so easy to make. I must admit I was a little nervous working with fabric and flames but it was a lot easier than I expected. I chose pieces of fabric that co-ordinated with the colours from the Prima pp's. I was really happy with the end result.

Here is a close-up of the braided vine I made myself for this LO. I've posted the tutorial below. I wanted to do something different that would add to the natural earthy feel of the pp's. Again, I colour co-ordinated the hemp cord with the pp's. I also misted the blooms and added some cinamon stickles. the flourishes were also hand made using liquid pearls.

This pretty butterfly is from Kay's etsy shop. Her butterflies are my favourites. the details work is just exsquisite and absolutely faultless.
