Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful weekend. My kids didn't go to Clearwater as planned so my weekend was a little different than I had in mind, but that's OK.
So this week's Silhouette Sunday share is a topiary that I have literally been working on for months. Here's why.... I made the little pot and then the whole project went into thinking stage. It stayed there for weeks and weeks. Then I finally bought styrofoam balls. Put some of it the pot. Then it went back into a holding pattern. About 4 weeks ago I cut the roses and started gluing them on and then ran out of the paper I using. Ack! But fortunately I found someone on Splitcoast Stampers that had a package of this paper but she mailed it to my old address so it took about a week or so to get it. I got the paper about 2 weeks ago. Yesterday I finally sat down, cut out the last 19 roses that I needed and finished the project.
My daughter loves her tree. It stands about 18 inches high. The pot should be bigger, really, but I'm limited on space with a Portrait. A word of caution if you decide to make one.... don't push the dowel all the way to the bottom of the pot.... it will not sit straight. I am speaking from experience.
I'm linking up to Lori Whitlock's Link Up Party - flower theme challenge.
