Altered bra/ papertrey ink

A work friend is dong a sponsored walk/run for breast cancer next month . They give you a bra that you have to wear for the event which they want you to decorate. So this is what i came up with. The flowers are cut out of felt using 3 nesting flower dies from papertrey ink, and a the poinsettia leaf die also from papertrey ink

tried gluing them on but it didn't work. So out came the needle and thread. I'm sure she is going to look really good in it

HEXAGONS - my minds eye challenge and scrapagogo crop kit

Hexagons appear to be popping up everywhere. So with the new my minds eye paper i got from the scrapagogo crop kit and some from my own stash . I came up with this layout. The punched strip is from a fiskars/american crafts punch and the brown trim i got from a local craft shop
The chicken wire stamp is from waltzing mouse stamps and the splodge from papertrey ink grunge collection

The frame is made from a technique tuesday elements set which i have used as a template The rolled flowers are hexagons cut in a spiral and rolled up, plus some extra hexagons cut from the paper and layered. The be happy element was in the kit and the letters are from prima
