Smoke in the air...

Well we're having beautiful weather still, except for the fact that for the past 2 days there has a been a covering of smoke every where. There are a lot of fires in the Interior of BC and on the coast in Powell River and because of certain Highs & Lows in the weather system it is pushing all the smoke over here to the east coast of Vancouver Island from Campbell River (where I am) all the way down past Nanaimo. It's crazy and Environment Canada has an air quality warning out for people with things like asthma etc to limit themselves from going outside while this is happening. I sure hope this clears up soon, I think we need a few rain showers to settle it down, which we may have on the weekend.

So while trying to avoid going outside to much I was able to get a few things done. Thanks to one of the ladies over at My Creative Scrapbook (Bonnie, aka Cinnabon) she gave a link on her Blog to a great video for making the Camelot Doop Flowers similar to the ones Prima puts out. You can find the video by Jaded Studios here: Jaded Studios. I tried the ones out that she makes with the Hydrangea petals and they turned out really cute and were very easy to make. A picture of the ones I made are below. I haven't tried her paper version as I think I'm gong to use Bonnie's tutorial instead. You can find Bonnies's Blog here: Pretty Little Somethings

They came out pretty cute, didn't they?

After I made these I knew they would go perfect with some of Basic Grey's Infuse line of papers that I had. I loved the page that Bonnie had done using one of Liz Qualman's (My Little Sketch Book) sketches. So I thought I would try the sketch out myself and scrap a picture of my daughter and my Granddaughter. I really love how these flowers look on this page. I'd love to hear your comments on what you think about the flowers and layout. Thanks so much for taking a peek at my work.
