Pole Dancing

 This layout was featured April 25th over at Practical Scrappers!

HOWDY ALL!

I had the day off today and spent MOST of the morning cleaning and Scrappin'!!

I saved this sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches last month and chose the PERFECT photo to make it with, UNFORTUNATELY, I didn't get it done until today.

Here is my take, that's me just being SILLY:
 
 A close up of my flowers:
 and some embossing, I used my embossing plate and since the 12 x 12 wouldn't fit into my little embosser, I used some double sided tape and taped the back side down and then got my rolling pin and and kept going over and over it for about 2 or 3 minutes:
 Aren't my flowers just AWESOME? Well, I think so! LOL!
I had seen this idea a few weeks ago, and just KNEW I had to give it a try!
First of all I hand cut my flowers out of toilet paper!! YEP, GOOD OL' TP!! I also did the green strip the same way.This took most of the day in between cleaning to let them dry and stuff, but thought it was SO worth the wait.
 I then misted them with some glimmer mist:
 I also hand cut the leaves and misted them:
 I let my flowers and leaves sit for just a bit and then I sent them through my embosser:
 Here is a close up on one, you can see the SPARKLES:
The centers of the flowers are just a small circle of TP and I misted them also, then glued a button on top. You can check out the post where I seen this technique over at Frosted Designs, of course I did mine a little different, but it's still COOL!! LOL!
