I wish you were here with me just now because you would hear me laughing in delight! I think most of my stampin gals know that I do not take credit for other people's ideas. When they compliment me on a project, I will say "I got the idea from xxx" or "I tweaked someone's idea" but tonight I think I have a novel idea - I have not seen anything like it elsewhere and it is the very simpliest idea ever!!!! For this project I used a scallop circle diecut. The idea came to me when I was asked for ideas for a combo shower to be held at work (school) for two gals - one is getting married and the other just had a baby. Now what theme would work for both - well since they are both showers I thought we could make umbrella's. For the shaft of the umbrella I used a Bogdon's Reception stick (aren't they the yummiest!!!) I simply cut in from the edge to the center of the scallop circle and then overlapped the parts on either side of the cut by 6 bumps and adhered with snail. The candy has a mini glue dot on the very end to stick it to the circle center. I think this is soooo neat!! ...if I do say so myself!!!!
Now I spent the evening watching the biggest loser (sure hope Helen wins) and flipping over to Dancing with the Stars to see who got kicked off ( WOW! Little Kim!) and working on a secret project which I cannot show you until next week. I am pleased with it too but sorry you'll have to wait to see it!!
