Today I am using Spellbinders S4-288 Classic Diamonds die template and i altered this candle for a nice Fall centerpiece

i also used Spellbinders S4-125 Classic Scalloped Circles Small die template &

Xyron adhesive.

Next i used the lovely Xyron Creatopia Fabric adhesive & the Classic Diamonds i cut felt shapes & then ran them through the fabric adhesive sandwiched a bit of batting between them & the adhesive worked perfectly to hold the diamonds together while i stiched these ornaments..sorry no tree up yet to display them on ;0). The centers were made with the S4-192 Blossom dies. Add a little bling to the center & a christmas tree hook & these are ready to go.

I then decided to try my hand at using the negatives & play with some mist, so i made a few Christmas cards

{ Leslie Update }

an update on my Sister-in-Law, long over due i know, since her benefit & all the chemo treatments, Leslie had to get a bone marrow transplant, luckily her sister was a match. In June, Leslie & my brother went to Chicago~Loyola Hospital & she had her transplant done, they had to stay within 20 miles of the hospital for 100 days in isolation with tons of restrictions. Well happy to announce that they are back now & her donor cells have taken over 100% & their is no Leukemia cells. Woo Hoo on her fight!!! Thank You to everyone that kept her in your thoughts & prayers.

Back to the benefit i had brought a guest book for everyone to sign & had every intention of decorating prior to the benefit, and with all the planning & gathering of donations i ran out of time..finally i finished it & was able to give it to her.
