Smile - Enjoying Mike's 21st

** Don't forget about my giveaway! **

This is another one for the Olympiad, this time for event #5: Weightlifting. Requirements were to use numbers, something heavier than paper and the word weight. I've used numbers in my subtitle, resin cabochans which are heavier than paper and my hidden journalling talks about my sister's struggles with her weight and how that impacted on her self-confidence.

The photo is of my sister and I at our brother's 21st. The doily was made by me using a new die I have just purchased, I can see it being very popular, even if it is tedious to make sure all the holes have been punched out. Charms Creations heart seemed like a good centre for the embellishment cluster. Craft Queen ribbon was just perfect for the colour scheme and I've used some more of the washi tape I just bought. I think I might end up using the whole role within a month the way I'm going!

I'm also using this LO as my half-way inspiration for UnstampaBelles. Their challenge this month was paper flowers, you can see a close up of mine below. The white ones are Kaisercraft miniblooms and the black one I made from their individual petals with the Glimmer Mist and scrunching. There's still time to enter for this month and there is a great prize pack up for grabs. Any papercraft project with paper flowers can be entered as long as you haven't used a stamp of any kind.

Here is the sketch I based this LO on.
