Magnificent Monday

Magnificent Monday Guest: Cristena Bagne!
I am so super excited that I was asked by Jenny Wood of the Paper Bakery to be a guest on the site. Talk about a total and complete honor! I wasn’t really sure what I was going to make. However, my daughter, Meadow, came to me and asked for a new night light for her room. I took her to Ikea (our favorite place for inspiration besides Pier 1 Imports) to take a look around. She said she didn’t like any of them, but maybe I could make it pretty… or from her it was “I know you could make one of these pretty mommy!”. Now just how exactly am I supposed to refuse that? I can never refuse her.
We got the lamp at Ikea for $4.99 I came home and got out the new Tea Time Designer Series paper from Stampin’ Up!’s new Spring Catalog (love it!). Meadow loves the paper too so I knew this would look great! Grabbed my Big Shot, the Fun Flowers Die, some hot glue sticks and a hot glue gun! I was off! Started running all the paper through the big shot ( I have some left over flowers) and started to hot glue them all together. I started at the top and just kept adding and when the row was finished I just moved down and started a new row. It took 32 flowers to completely cover the lamp shade.
Yes she loves the lamp! She says “momma, you need to hurry up and finish taking pictures so I can put it in my room”
Thanks for sharing with us, Cristena!
