Sweet Resin Cherubs

This week the ladies have been playing with the Melissa Frances resin pieces and aren't they doing a fine job?!  The MF pieces are super gorgeous and what an amazing collection available at LLC and now even some new stuff!!  

I thought about one of the biggest resin pieces I have and immediately went to the little cherubs and found a matching vintage image from Pion Design. I was trying to avoid covering up that oooooooooh so gorgeous "Alençon" lace.   I've also got some jute layered under the Madame de Pompadour lace for texture.

I don't normally use a lot of foilage on my bouquets and was determined to start when I saw some new dies from Noor Design.  I asked my teamie to send some over since I wasn't sure where to find them and no problem!  Thanks Tracy!!  I love them!  Once you add some gorgeous Kort and Godt rolled flowers, Melissa Frances pearls and some Magnolia vintage berries....WELL!  OH MA GOSH!  I might have to try this a few more times.  I LIKE IT UH-LOT!  (Jim Carey anybody? hee hee)

I managed to sneak in another resin piece with SANTA!  Maybe more appropriately "Father Christmas".  hee hee  I've used papers from Maja Design's "It's Christmas Time" collection and cut the numbers and Santa image from a tag.  I added a little shabby chic ribbon, flower and VOILA!

Here you see some of those oh so pretty Wild Orchid Crafts flowers that LLC now carries.  Love the hip rosebuds and I don't use them much but I might start.  They sure finish off a bouquet rather nicely don't you think!

So that's what I have to show you for this week.  Have a great weekend and HAPPY CRAFTING!
