Bella on Parade

Well, I have been ultra busy getting back from Silver Bella. I just wanted to give you a peak at all the beautiful items I made.
Several months before Silver Bella, Sandy sent me a wonderful care package and included this little Mary E notebook.

It was my organizer to make sure that I packed all the lovely goodies for classes, organized my swap items and my blog friend goodies. It was a lifesaver! Thank you Sandy!

Here are a few pictures of the incredible classes:
The Group Workshop - with the Prima Bellas
I just loved this little mini ornament. Love the whole concept of using a stamped image to create an embroidered piece.

Charlotte Lyons - Prada Schmada

I enjoyed combining wonderful treasures from my MaMa, my Mom, and Karla. Each time I am reminded of all those special ladies.

Pam Garrison - Home for the Holidays
I just loved using some vintage wallpaper in this class. I know it doesn't look much like a holiday decoration, but I wanted to be able to use it year around. I found the blue tin on a trip with my buddy, Leah, and then I combined some vintage millinery that I purchased from Karla at vendor night! Just love how it turned out!

Rebecca Sower - Prayer Collage

After many years of admiring Rebecca Sower, I finally was privilege to attend her Prayer Collage Class. I was almost in tears several times, as reality sunk in that I was actually in her presence. What a beautiful and talented woman. So this peace will be treasure for a very long time.

Sally Jean - Snow Globe

What an amazing class this was!!! To actually have this vintage cut bottle and learn from techniques from the leader in soldering was awesome. I wish the picture was better, because it just doesn't do it justice.

Teresa McFayden - Christmas Pageant

What a great time I had in this class. Learning new techniques and getting to meet Teresa was one of my highlights. I am still putting on the finishing touches so will show you this neat project later this week.
