Good And Plenty

Sunday greetings to all,


I'm posting today since I have a few minutes to spare. The kids go back to school tomorrow, now it's my hubby's turn for time off. He teaches at a technical college in NYC, so he has a week and a half off, until next trimester starts. I'll take advantage of this and finish setting up my craftroom, once and for all!. Finish a couple of swaps, and get ready for our son's First Communion, etc.


I have a few pictures to share, so here they are...





My partner for this swap was the lovely and talented, Jillian. I wanted to create something really special for her. One of my favorite parts in the movie is when Giselle makes a dress out of Robert's living room curtains. I wanted to recreate that dress and voila!...







I had a challenging adventure trying to fold the paper, but I succeeded, and I am very happy with how it turned out!. And being the daughter of a talented seamstress, rubbed off on me!


I also felt I needed to make her a crown, we girls can never, ever have too many of these...






And I thought, why not make a mini album depicting the items, so here's what I made...






I adore this little album, It turned out super cute!


And for her daughter, Kayla, I made this banner:



3D Prom Queen

This was definitely a very fun swap!. Thank you Sarah for coming up with this one!!



I've also been busy creating my son Jeremy's First Communion invitations, I tried to make it as cute as possible, but what is it with boys' things?






I love silhouettes, so I took his profile picture, and created one of the communion boy himself ,it turned out pretty cool!. I printed the ceremony info on the back, I normally make my invites this way. I'll be wrapping them up with aqua colored tissue paper, and I'm using white ribbon to tie them up. These are going to be hand delivered, that's why I'm using tissue paper.



Next, I'll be doing the favors, I'll post a picture of those soon.



In my next post, I'll be showing you the wonderful items Miss Sandy sent me for winning her 100th post Giveaway! Lots of terrific goodies!!
Until next time, stay healthy and happy!

Big Hugs,

Rosa

Rosa, your Enchanted gifts we're AMAZING! I loved everything. Especially the colors you used. My favorite is the Kayla banner. You've been busy. The communion invites are so cute while still being appropraite for a boy. Can't wait to see what you create next!
