Flower Fusion

Hi Stampers,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. . . I did. Mine weekend was spent camping with Rocky and Blake in Alpha, IL. It was so much fun but also a little stressful. This was our first camping outing of the year and only our 2nd ever camping trip with our new camper. We got most of the bugs worked out and are already looking forward to our next camping trip. So first a couple pictures from the weekend.

This first picture is of Rocky and Blake. Thank goodness Rocky got the "fake grass" to lay out in front of the camper. It was a very nice place for Blake to play.

The second picture if of me and Blake. Here we are making Taco Pie in the Dutch Oven. This is a camping favorite and we always make it when we go out.

The final picture is of Blake. He found a dirt pile not to far from the camper and then got it all over himself. Thank goodness the camper has a bath tub. :o)

OK on to stamping. . . today samples use Flower Fusion (1100720 $14.95). I love using these custom colored felt flowers and they will add an eclectic dimension to any of your projects. You get 130 pieces packaged in a fun tin.

Card club members got to use Flower Fusions on a card last month, but today I'm going to show you some altered paperclips I made last night.

The colors that come in the Flower Fusion are: Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Old Olive. There is also a Flower Fusion Too that has Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip.

As you can see there are lots of options on how to layer the Flower Fusion pieces.

Here is a close up of one of the paper clips. As you can see I used a clear Rhinestone Brad to hold the flowers together. The brad also is used to attach the flower to the paperclip.

Thanks for stopping by today!
