January Blind CropVille 2011

Well here we are, the very first Blind CropVille for this year and we have started off on a roll.  The girls got to play with tooth brushes, paint, stitching, a bit or origami, a Glimmer of Mist, a bit of fussy cutting, and they also had a little (supervised) play with some matches......... all by candle light!!  No not really, but you intrigued right?
 .................a little peek..

All in all it was a very enjoyable class and the girls got to play with things they may not have touched on before, which is always a good thing.  A big thank you to Sally for preparing the BCV this month, we came away at the end with some great techniques, beautiful flowers and really nice layouts.  Even the other Mums that just have boys were right in there, borrowing nieces and granddaughters and girlfriend snaps to scrap!!

Sally gave us a white paint spattered background, folded and Glimmer Misted dictionary paper flower centred with a singed organza ribbon swirl, gathered organza flowers and leaves, singed to shape, decoratively cut and mounted corners, mounted flowers and staggered mounted photos.
