Silhouette Sunday

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.
