August local “what do U see”: Limonata

Leiann’s goodie envelopes were each color themed with a different image included…

we did a group photo with each person’s packets…so the above doesn’t totally match what I brought home to play with but gives the general idea…

my packet had the dragonfly instead of a butterfly girl shown above and was all about yellow

the bird landed on the roof of the house in the exact right spot as luck would have it when I attached the piece of scrapbook paper Leiann included…

I cannot seem to use the shredded text nest idea from Linda often enough…

I had the perfect little red flower to add too…

I Love playing with paper parasols and managed to use an entire one split on the front and back…

I used gesso here and there to tie things together…

attached a lady to peek out of the copper keyhole that I distressed and just happened to have some yellow brads handy…

my favorite number “13” torn from a Bingo sheet…

the ‘family stamps’ are from my collection too…

not sure which side I like best…

house shapes are great fun…

this one measures about 9″ tall x 6 ” wide…22.86cm x 15.24 …

I cannot wait to show you the latest smooshed kipper tin that Lisa Murphy made for me…it’s a beauty

  14. Oh wow, Patty. I love houses, too. I was so impressed with this one, too. I really must get some of those little cocktail parasols. They look like a lot of fun and you seem to always have great examples of how to use them. Not sure I’ve ever seen you use the scrap shredded paper nests before. I think that’s a very clever idea. Those “family stamps” are adorable. I was sure glad your group liked the Sharpie and alcohol idea, too.
