Dressing up the Home

You may remember that I met up with my blogging friends,
Darnell & Mary last month.

They were both so generous bestowing wonderful stamping gifts on me.

Darnell gave me some K and Company vellum adornments
and I've had a good time with them.

Have a look....

As I told Darnell, I'd never figured out what I wanted to put on the walls in my dining room.

Recently I found these frames and 2 of the vellum adornments fit perfectly.

I've adhered them to some Naturals Ivory (SU) cardstock and place them in the frames.

The cardstock is an almost perfect match for the walls so they look like
flowers pressed between glass.

I love the more finished look to my dining room.

Most of all, I love remembering the good time we had together.

 and now I have a reminder every time I walk through my dining room.

Thanks for the visit,

What a beautiful reminder of the great fun you all had when meeting up Bonnie! I can't believe those are vellum, they look amazing and you are right, the cardstock is a perfect match to your wall color, making those beautiful vellum flowers look like they are pressed between glass. I just love how they look on your wall!! I also love that picture of the 3 of you-such wonderful dear ladies are you all!! Hugs, Brenda
