Rose Blossom Team Blog Hop!

If you are looking for my ScrapFIT reveal, please scroll down.


Happy Spring!  Welcome to the Rose Blossoms Blog Hop!

Let me tell you a little about the Rose Blossoms. As a Close To My Heart consultant, I am blessed to have a beautiful bouquet of team members, and the name of my team is the Rose Blossoms.  We support and encourage each other not only in our Close To My Heart businesses, but in our artwork.  After all, it is our love of paper crafting that drew all of us to become Close To My Heart consultants in the first place!   Don’t you agree that creativity blossoms even more when it is shared and appreciated?

So now we want to share with you!  We are starting here on my blog, and I want to invite you to visit each of my team members that are participating.  We will each be inspiring you with a lovely spring project, and here is mine:


I found a 9" clear acrylic plate at Target on clearance for 37 cents.  That is the base of this piece of home decor.  I used my Art Philosophy cartridge to cut 84 flowers, 42 leaves, 1 butterfly, 1 banner, and 1 circle.  I used the dotted side from Dotty for You. (On Tuesday you will be able to order yours!!) There are three five-petaled flowers stacked together, and I've put a rolled flower in the center.  I used Liquid Glass and pop dots to adhere everything to the plate.  This will sit in our living room as a spring decoration.  Maybe it will even stay out there all through the summer!

Now it's time for you to visit the remaining blogs on the hop and leave them some love!  Should you get lost you can always come back here to find out who you need to visit:

You have the opportunity to earn 8 tickets for the drawing:


**Visit each one of my team members on the hop  and leave a comment for one ticket in the drawing (including me!).  You must comment on all of them to get this ticket!
**Receive an extra ticket for each blog that you decide to follow!  (As their leader, I promise you won’t be disappointed.  I have the most creative bunch of rose buds!)

This Spring Blog Hop goes through Monday, April 16th at 11:59 pm central time.  I will gather all the tickets and randomly draw one winner that I will announce on Tuesday evening, April 17th.  Each of my team members will also announce the winner on their blogs.  Here is the $40 prize package that the winner will receive:


Your next stop is Marg at I Didn't Have Potatoes.  Happy Hopping and thanks for visiting me and these wonderful team members of mine!

As I said on the boards, there just aren't words to express accurately what I think when I see your beautiful decorated plate. I'm nearly speechless (so to speak...no pun intended), but I'll try. It is absolutely stunning. How long did it take you to make all those flowers?! Crazy good! I've been a follower of yours for some time....like duh...why wouldn't I already be. Your work is always fabulous. I look forward to seeing all of your team's art work. :)

This rose wreath is breath taking, Breda. I just bought my ART Philosophy Cartridge (I am a new an independent consultant) and expect it to be delivered in the next couple of days. I just afraid I won't be crafty enough to make all the beautiful things.

What an amazingly beautiful piece of home decor! I love that you used a thrifty plate as a base. I can't imagine how much time it took to make, but the effect is stunning.
