LFS - Winter BFFs mobile

Hey everyone!!

Yep, this is a little late, so for today I'm renaming this to Lilo's Fun Sunday!!  Been super busy at work and had a b-day project I had to think up and finish for a b-day party yesterday.  I'll share what I finally picked another time.  Now here's something a little different from me.  I decided to try my hand at making one of those mobiles I've see here and there.  It was pretty easy putting together because I kept it CAS.


Pulled out the BFFs from Sister Stamps and a few sentiments from AmyR's Handy Christmas Greetings & Snowman Sayings.  I also pulled out the Nesting Sprays 5-petal dies, white sheer ribbons and some twill lace.   The dp is Blue Linked Circles from Recollections.  I semi distressed the inside of each flower with vintage photo to give that nice border around each spray.  Next up I have the panels...


Here are the BFFs colored with very soft blues and blacks.  They could actually pass for sisters yea?  I added some bells to the big white bow to add a bit of sparkle and chime.  Right behind the girls is the white twill lace.  Next up are the sentiments, this first one is one of my favorites...


Isn't this an awesome sentiment?  I haven't used this one since last year so I thought it was appropriate for this project.  I added a bow at the top of each flower it seemed to soften up the flowers.  Next up is one of the smaller flowers with another favorite sentiment that fit perfectly inside...


This last one is the tiniest of the set and since I couldn't find a sentiment to fit I handwrote one in.  Now I could have written just about anything, but I thought Joy was the perfect word to end with...


This was a lot of fun to make and I could possibly see myself make more of these using different shapes,  images and sentiments.  This would be a perfect project for the latest Yumi & Fumi Handmade challenge (Use lace or ribbon).  Did you know that you could enter using Sister Stamps or a few other stamps we love?  Yep!!  Come check out the details {here} and if you would like to play you still have 2 weeks left to link up {here}. We'd love to see your projects. 


Now just cause it's Sunday doesn't mean I won't continue with the LFFs share a treat fun.  So let's see, leave me a comment answering this question:  Ribbon or Lace?  I will choose a random comment to win and announce it on Wednesday's post.  Can't wait to hear what everyone likes.   Mahalo for stopping by, hope you all have a lovely Sunday!!
