It's CHA time!!! How exciting is that!! Well for Emerald Creek it's beyond exciting!! Our talented leader is at her first ever CHA....I believe it is the first of many!! And more exciting news....the amazing Nicole Wright is releasing her first set of designs of her own quarterly releases too!! Seriously....is it any wonder I can't take my eyes of my Instagram and Twitter and all things that will connect me to the crazy goodness happening!?
But the reason we're here today is to see some of the amazing products that Emerald Creek and Nicole Wright Designs have for you!!
My project is actually two....a set of two 12X12 canvasses. As you'll see from the finished product, this was a very emotional project for me and I'll admit, I had to stop sometimes because the emotions and tears were overwhelming for. Kim, our wonderful leader, had said we could choose our topic for our CHA pieces....so I chose my parents because I think they had a true love story that wasn't long enough and there were so many great pieces from Emerald Creek and new designs from Nicole that fit my project.
My parents wedding colors were yellow and white, yellow roses were delivered to my Mom on every anniversary for 39 years.
|We all know how much I love the Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder and yes I used it again! :) I wanted to add some sparkle to the white flowers|
|I love the charms from Emerald Creek!! The handsome guy inside the Prize Cameo Charm is my son.|
|These charms are the gorgeous Round Cabochon Charms, I love that they look like little pocket watches! In these ones are myself and my daughter.|
|I cut out the flourishes and then embossed them with the Burnt Copper Leaves powder, it is such a rich color and I love the texture!|
|My Mom and Dad, my sister, brother and I and my two nieces, two nephews and my babies (although they are not babies, they are 22 (daughter) and 20 (son)|
The sheet music on the background of this one is my parent's wedding song "We've Only Just Begun" by the Carpenters. I used Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo for color.
On my second piece I was fortunate enough to have access to the brand new stamp set Fallen Blossom from Nicole Wright Designs and was able to use it on this. It was perfec timing since I felt like I was missing something, then we got the images and it was perfect, my Mom's favorite lotion was Japanese Blossom from Bath and Body Works.
|The cherry blossoms are so pretty and I hid a little Dragonfly Brad from Emerald Creek in the blossoms too.|
I'm so lucky to be able to create something for my family using such wonderful products and images!!
