The Scrapp'n Savvy's Sampler Project March 30-31, 2012

I added an wooden oval with my wedding photo at the beginning of my project next to the muslin flower.
I chose Tim Holtz red brick stain as my accent color.
Between the H and O I hung three wooden embelishments from my kit, One I dyed red brick, one I wall papered, and the third one I covered with striped red ribbon. It was fun using different techniques on the wood.
The butterfly was the most fun creative element of the project. Using a heavy glue dot I attached my butterfly to a 1 1/2" Black Bazzill flower to a 3" red Bazzill flower on the right lower side of the O overlaping the M slightly.
This flower element I attached on the E. The center piece I also covered a wood with red striped ribbon, using fabric-tac to adhere it to my project. As you see at the left on the right side of the M I used three black flowers ucing pearls as the centers.  
Not shown in this photo I use a wood element as achalk board to state the year my family was established. At the right end of my project I added a homemade heart to title my project, "Home is where you hang your Heart." Slightly Behind this heart I am going to add on an rectangle a photo of our first home. I loved this Sampler project and plan on using the skills I've learned to create wedding gifts. What di you think.

    A heartwarming story:
    The other day traffic was backed up and while waiting in a long line to get to her turn she came to find the trouble. She watched many young healthy boys and men pass the problem, but My sweet daughter stopped her car and helped an elderly gentleman push his car, which had died, over the railroad tracks and into the gas stations where he could get help. Simple acts of kindness can make a huge difference in someone's life. He was so grateful and a great feeling of happiness was enjoyed by both.

    Another TRUE story: Have you ever been in a drive through line at a resturant only to find when you arrived at the window to pay that your order had been paid for by someone in front of you? Well I found out that this week it has happened many times. The first recipient then paid for the car behind him and so forth for many times over again. A simple act of kindness can go a long way to changing your day from bad to good. lives were changed that day thank you to all who show kindness to others.

    Hope you all have a happy restful Easter with your friends and family.
