I painted the wooden frame with some green acrylic paint that I had - 2 or 3 coats. I took the glass out and replaced it with the 12"x12" piece of cork. On one side of the cork, I put a piece of designer paper and a piece of ribbon. I did not glue them down so they could be changed. I made a crimped flower using Poppy Parade cardstock. The stem and petals are Kiwi Kiss that I ran through my crimper.
I will be in downtown Charlotte the next few days. Marianne, Sharon ("girlfriend") and I have rooms booked for Thursday and Friday nights for the CKC Convention. Marianne and I have signed up for a lot of classes!! Friday we will be taking hour long classes at 8:30; 10:00; and 12:30. Then we have a 1 1/2 hour class at 6 pm. Not sure when we will find time to shop and eat but I'm sure we will. On Saturday, we are booked for a 2 hour class at 8:30 and one hour classes at 11, 12:30 and 2!! After all our classes, we hope to get over to a scrapbook store that is in Charlotte. We have never been but we have coupons that we got on Groupon that is burning a hole in our pockets! Saturday night we will meet the family at Galway Hooker for some yummy fish and chips. I'm sure on Sunday, I will be exhausted!! So, I probably won't be blogging until Sunday or Monday.
