Inspired

April 13, 2011

There is so much inspiration as you stroll through blogland; from photography to cards, scrapbook layouts to mixed media, sewing to jewelry. Everyone has their own unique style with a little element that truly makes it their own. Recently, when I was visiting one of my favorite blogs; I saw a beautiful project that I knew I just had to recreate. I searched in every store imaginable and had almost given up hope of finding a wooden cross. On an off chance, this past week I found a wooden cross that looked much like hers so I grabbed the last one there. It was truly meant to be! I was just itching to make this and finally completed it. I did add a small snippet of lace to the nest, but mostly kept it just like Vicki’s inspiration. I just love it and now it has a very special place in my home.
They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. Thank you, Vicki for the inspiration!
Wishing you all a creative day.

Ah, so beautiful, Sheila. You did such a great job. I just put a picture of the card you gave me with the scrapbook on my blog today...it's a beautiful card. When I finally have an inspiration board, I will put that on. I also realized you are not on my blog list...I am embarrassed as I visit here all the time! I hardly look at it anymore, since I use Google Reader.Lovely post and pictures.

Hugs,
Suz

I love the cross! I have an old hymnal so I just need to select a song and create. Thank you for the shared idea.
