Embellish it from around the house....

Happy Friday,
This is a scheduled post, so hopefully by the time you are reading it, my mom will already be in surgery or perhaps recovery. There is a very slight possibility that she will have the gall bladder removed here (we are in Virginia...she and my gran like the docs here..) and then travel to Kingsport, TN to see a gastroenterologist if she does indeed have a stone blocking the bile duct.
When we know more, I'll post an update. So continued prayers, please.

Now on to some happy scrappy goodies. It is Friday and that means a new challenge is up at Frosted Designs, this week our fabby sister, Joni is hostess. She is challenging us to create an embellishment from a household item.
Here is a close up of my embellie, do you think you know what common item I used for my lollipop flower?

If you guessed a toilet paper roll, you are correct! I used some nestie circle punches, crinkled them up, and applied some frayed burlap ink and there ya have it! This also fits the Practical Scrappers Monthly Bonus Challenge too! Check it out....

I made this for my size E (8.5 X 11) sheets of CTMH stamps. I removed it from the binder for the photo, I knew there would be glare. I want to see what you do with common items from around the house this week. Oh, and don't forget to visit the fabby Frosted DT ladies, trust me, they will inspire you to get creating.
And we have this yummy prize for June, all you have to do to be eligible to win, is PLAY ALONG....the more you play, the more chances you have at winning it!

I hope to see you at Frosted Designs this week!
