It is the Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop's 1st Anniversary!! We are excited to have been bringing you inspiration and creations for a whole year now.
July, personally, is full of anniversaries for me. Some are good and some are bittersweet. Because of this, and the fact it's our Blog Hop's anniversary, I decided to make all my projects related to the anniversaries of my life.
In July (2007) we adopted our beautiful Big Earred Pup. She's since grown into her ears, but she's never outgrown my heart. Her name is Emma, which means "Healer of the Universe". She healed my universe, at least a little bit.
I attempted to create a punch art in her likeliness.
Here is a close up.
And here is my model with her Punch Art Twin. What do you think??
July is a bittersweet month for me. In July (2005), I said Hello and Goodbye to my little girl. Three years later, her daddy joined her in Heaven.
I made this figurine of two angels using Stampin' Up!'s Simply Pressed Clay.
Here is a close up. I made them separately then pressed them together to make one figurine.
In July (2003), we got married. It was a beautiful day.
I created these flowers in my wedding colors using the Fringe Scissors. You can see a tutorial HERE.
I didn't have ribbon in any current shades of Green so I used a retired ribbon. Just because it's retired doesn't mean we shouldn't ever use it. Use up your stash today.
I hope you've enjoyed my projects today. It was nice for me to do some creating as I survive July. Thank you for being a part of my healing process.
