A Fall Creation

While going through a box I found a bag of old spoons from my grandmother. These particular spoons are from American Airlines. Believe it or not they not only used to serve real food on the airplane but you got to eat it with real utensils! My aunt was a flight attendant which is how I imagine my grandmother ended up with these.

I really wanted to make something neat with these and being intrigued with the utensil art I've seen on the net in various places this is what I came up with. I used glue dots to attach the spoons. I'm not sure that will hold up well - its hanging on the wall now so we'll see. My next approach will be to dig out the hot glue gun and try that if these glue dots fail me. This little wall hanging is my entry to the Paper Issues challenge to create something in honor of Thanksgiving.

Thanks for looking!

The Play Date Cafe is hosting another color challenge and I really enjoyed playing with these colors and just may have figured out what I want to do for our Christmas cards this year! The stamps are from Close to my Heart. For ink I used Stampin' Up (So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Not Quite Navy, Perfectly Pomegranate, Red Riding Hood and Baja Breeze) and StazOn in Black. The cardstock is Bazzill and the pattern paper is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses.

Thanks for looking!

The Play Date Cafe #54

Have you seen this great challenge blog? I love it. I've done a few of their challenges thus far. Here is my entry for their most recent one - to use stucco orange, celery and white. I found as many oranges close to stucco as I could in my scraps to create this. I love using up scraps! The stamps are from Unity Stamps - love their unmounted red rubber! Thanks for looking!

Sketchy Thursday's

So I printed this picture over a week ago and just couldn't get the layout to work. I finally just put it up figuring I'd eventually get to it or not. When I opened the Sketchy Thursday's blog today their sketch was perfect! The layout came together in about 20 mins. Thanks for looking!
