I am giving you a flower

Well today I boo boo'd and forgot my post! I never do that I am really an OCD person and I am very organized so I will beat myself up for it the rest of the day!! But no worries I have something to share with you today.

I used the new color Cape Cod because I am in love with it and my dear friend Kristy send me the best paper pad from My Minds Eye that was just made for this twine.

I would have went more all out but again reading up above you see I was not prepared!! I hope you like it any how.

I took and made some round pieces of twine and tied the knot in the end leaving a tail to grab on to it with. I used my mixture of scotch quick dry glue and some water and put them in the pool. When I picked them up (of course they screamed "I don't want to get out of the pool yet" "can we stay a bit longer" so I had to bribe them with a Popsicle. I wringed the twine out and then layed it on my teflon mat to dry. I took that time to shape them how I wanted them. Of course I did the twisty twine on my skewer. Couldn't leave out the twists! In hindsight I wish I would have done them in green to use as leaves. I always do that after a project....smack my head like if I was mad I didn't have a V8 but just mad because I always think of other things to do AFTER the fact.

So here we are!! Hope you like it!
