My closet, or yours?

Hi! It's Gini back again today. Well, you've had a week to discover that the Beary Scrap's Challenge is to be inspired by something in your closet. This week, I got my new Echo Park Country Drive collection, and I loved it so much, I knew I had to make it work for this week's challenge. As many of you know, my sweet sister Lori has moved right next door to me - and one of the perks that comes with that, is that we can now share what's in our closets! This is a picture of Lori and our Mom, taken a couple of years ago, at the Teacher's Luncheon, that Lori hosted. The theme was bees - and thus you can see the inspiration for today's project.

Don't you just love all of those bees?!!! I used a new stamp from Layers of Color Art stamps, and first colored it with Copics. I cut and colored and shaped a 2nd image of the bee and flowers, and highlighted them with Sakura Crystal 3-D Lacquer. I used a large Martha Stewart punch, and of course, had to add some Seam Binding ribbon.

Thanks for buzzing by today!

Gini, you totally rocked this challenge! It's too funny that you used Lori's closet for inspiration. I love the bee and your colors. How do you adhere the ribbon - is it a thin line of glue tape? Looks great!

Thanks ladies! And yes, Susan, I used the thin Scor-tape to adhere my ribbon.

Gini, this is fabulous, and I love what you've done here. You and Lori are so lucky to be so close to each other, and even better, be able to share each other's closets now that you are neighbors.

Beautiful project!!!
