Where flowers bloom, so does hope.
With baseball Opening Day in a little over a week. Making these baseball decorations has been getting me so excited for the season to start. While others favorite day of the year is their birthday or Christmas or even Valentine’s Day. Mine is Opening Day! Don’t get me wrong I love Christmas songs and red hearts all over the place. But Opening Day makes my heart super happy. Walking into the stadium after months of waiting for the season to start. The team introductions. The way the America Flag covers the field during the singing of the National Anthem. The Fly over and the face of the kid that calls out the first “PLAY BALL” of the season. Then then MIKE TROUT takes the field. Yes MIKE TROUT. The best player in baseball!!! That’s when I know that all is well in the world! Baseball is back and it’s going to be fun!
This Angels fan isn’t having too much making these Dodger decorations. LOL
I love baseball (gooooo Angels)!!!
I love crafting!!!
Today I brought them together to help my sister with decorations for a retirement party. I’m not done and I also didn’t take very many pictures. Hopefully more tomorrow.
These are going to go in a basket full of baseball goodies.
The Big A.
I’ve made a few large paper flowers before, but I eyeballed them and wasn’t sure if I was making them right. When Jamie at 702_ flowers4U offered a paper flower workshop. I decided to make a weekend out of it and travel to Las Vegas to take her workshop. Jamie was so nice and answered all my questions and didn’t hesitate to give us info, that is usually so hard to get answers to.
We made 2 flowers using her templates.
Here is the first one.
Those close up of the center is more true to color of this beautiful salmon colored paper.
We also made this flower, that I am so in love with.
It’s been years since I’ve been to Vegas. I decided to make the trip for a paper flower class!!! Super excited. I got here a day early and I’m already enjoying the yummy treats.
Sugar free desserts have come a long way and I’m so glad there are more options.
