**ZVA Bling and LO**

 Hello everyone! Happy Saturday! I love Saturday's, happens to be my favorite day of the week.. Fridays are my next to favorite! You know what else is my favorite?! To use ZVA bling for butterfly trails! They really are the icing on the cake! You can find them here in the Flying Unicorn store. Along with many new items loaded in the store daily! Here is the LO that I did using the awesome ZVA bling! I also used Creative Imaginations IOD for this LO. Which is also sold in the store.

 I also used some of our Yummy Flying Unicorn blooms too! The butterflies are compliments of Lisa Gregory. Love using butterflies and bling on my LO's.. Here are some close ups.



 The little sweetie in the LO is my 2nd cousin. She is such a doll! Such a tomboy too! After I did this photo shoot with her and my DD, 4 hours later she fell off a porch and broke her arm! Bless her heart!! Many hugs Emmy and hope you get better soon!!

 Notice the shape of the LO?! Need to check out the challenge threads for April and see what it's all about! Thank you all for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

**Vintage Soul LO**

  Hello everyone! Hope your day is off to a awesome start! I have found a new love in the scrapping world! "Melissa Francis" would be that new love! I played with this pp for this post today and honestly I could have played for ever! If you like Vintage/Shabby chic well this would be a amazing paper line to check out! Not only is the pp awesome, there are cool embellies as well!! Let me show ya what I am so excited about! LOL
 I totally love these PP and will have to get me some more! The PP that I used is "Geraldine", "Ebony", "Minerva", "Jewell" and "Hattie"..  I also used the Vintage Embellishments too! The white rose at the bottom, the rose swag at the top and the little swirl below the title. As you can see I also played some more with those gorgeous Manor House blooms!! I colored them with inks and micas to match my project. All of these can be found in the Flying Unicorn Store! How about a few close ups?!
Here you can see that awesome rose! I distressed all the edges and inked them to create more added dimention to the LO!
MH-2nd-Close-up-f-w This is a close up of the Manor House Flower and the vine is Petaloo.. Those colors matched perfectly to my project so just had to use them!! Also the small rose is also MF vintage embellishment. Need to give ya another close up of those beautiful Manor House flowers!
 I just loved coloring them to match my project with my mica's and inks!
 I made my title out of a tag and a awesome idea that I saw in the forums. Denise was explaining how to use perfect Pearls (which we just got a new shipment in theFlying Unicorn store of them) and versamark ink (clear watermark ink). So I just had to give it a try. All I did was stamp the image on my tag and use my powder over it, I used a Qtip to do this.. Stamped a Tattered Angel screen stamp and gave it a shot of Tattered Angels mist, I also inked the edges. It looked fab! The Alpha stamps are "Creative Imaginations".  Here are some other supplies that I used from my stash.. Off white little bitty ribbon flowers I found at Walley World as well as the white doilies. I used ribbon and lace from my stash. Some Vintage Doilies that a very nice lady who came to my work sold me. Love them!! And lastly Lisa Gregory Butterflies.

 I hope that you enjoyed my post and be sure to check out the Flying Unicorn store for these and many other awesome scrappy supplies! New things are being loaded almost daily!! Have a great week everyone!

**Spring Awakening LO**

 Hey all! Have a LO to share today with ya using Fancy Pants! I am so ready for Spring to be here!! I have a picture, that I have been waiting on for a long time to scrap. Found a really awesome sketch in the Flying Unicorn forums that really help me capture everthing I wanted it to be... Spring!! I used 4 awesome PP from Fancy pants "Kissame" from the Love Bird collection, "Dilly Dally" and "Cards" From the Road Show Collection, and from It's the Little things collection "Honeysuckle". Combined these with some Dusty Attic, Flying Unicorn flowers and Manor House flower, well spring came alive for me! All of these are Available in the Flying Unicorn Store!! Get them quick before they sale out!! Now for my LO..


 This picture for me captures Springs essence! My DD thought that it was a image that I got off of the web LOL.. Nope.. Dear Ole Mom took it, I used Florabella and PSE to enhanced it! These papers really felt like they was made for this photo! I also used a Prima Resin bird and Bird nest. Some Lace that I misted and changed it to that shade of pink. Mist used was Tattered Angels. Also sold in the store. I also used some glaze and mist to treat the Dusty Attic with. Here are some close ups of that.

 Treated the Dusty attic with gesso and some puffy paint then applied the glaze. I added a couple of pearl centers from my stash. I have another close up of the Dusty Attic I also used it as a Mask in the upper corner and lower right side. Here is a close up of that.

 You can also see the other piece of Dusty Attic that I used glaze and puffy paint on. Oh and did ya see the gorgeous Flying Unicorn Flowers? They are gorgeous!!! Here is my last Close up of the flower cluster...

 That big beautiful pink Flower is Manor House! These are also gorgeous flowers!! I thought that the little nest completed the Spring feel to my LO.. Now are you ready for Spring? LOL

We have been busy creating up a storm to give you some fabulous inspiration with hats! We have 2 for you to try out and have fun with.  All you need is paper, scissors, glue and embellies too!! First we found a awesome video tutorial on the steampunk hat. It was posted on the G45 blog done by the awesome Laura de la Rosa. You will find the link here. Also there will be files added to the Files section of the Flying Unicorn site to print out as well. Here is mine and Frank's inspiration with this hat.


I searched around and was very disappointed to find no other hats that would do for this challenge. So I have one that I have come up with. The file for this one will also be found in the file section of the site to print out. Only extra supply you will need will be a x-acto knife and a cutting mat.  Here is some inspiration for this as well.

 Is it beautiful?! So pretty you can almost print and slap a pic and be done! Ok so here is what I done with this fabulous sketch..
 This Lo reminds me of my dd not being a little girl anymore and the woman she is yet to be.. I used some of my most favorite PP.. Fabscraps! Just got them in from the Flying unicorn store! I used from Fabscraps "Organic tree", "Classic Flower" and "Organic Garden". The Back ground PP is Glitz "Houndstooth". I also used some new arrivals to the store, Manor House Flowers! OMG! These flowers are Oh so beautiful!! I used from Manor House Large white Flower is "Fantasy Wishes" Blue ones are "Sugar and spice Blue" and the yummy peach ones are "Marguerite Apricot"! Yummy to the Max! I also used from Prima "Roosevelt Collection", "Athena Aurora pink and blue", Vine is also Prima and Petaloo's "Canterbury Vine spray Green" and Flying Unicorn little roses. Dusty Attic "Dress forms" both the big and small. (Note: New shipment of Dusty Attic in the store). The Bird house is a wooden piece from Kaisercraft. The title is a rub on  from K and company. Lace from walley world and pearls are CTMH. MS flower punch. Here are some close ups of the details!
 I treated the bird cage with just about everything LOL!! TH crackle paint in "Picket Fence White" and TH distress ink. Several differnet colors of Tattered angels Glam and glaze.. Last hit it with a shot of some of my white homemade mist.. Me and this bird cage went round and round! Getting the color right presented a little of a challenge!LOL Ok Next close up..

 This dress form was way awesome to decorate! Ribbons, flowers and Fabscraps! Oh and the blue flower is Manor House! Here is a close up of the flower cluster..
I just loved playing with those Manor House flowers! So beautiful!! Last close up..

This is a K and company rub on that I found in my stash.. I wanted to do a different title but it totally wasn't working out for me.. So I found this and it matched those Manor house blooms to the T!
