Canvas Art

Amy over at Positively Splendid posted a tutorial on the cutest Nursery Wall Hanging canvases that she made for her little girl's room.
My friends, Zack and Janean just welcomed their first little girl to their family, and I couldn't resist making some for little Juliet Jenaveve Johnson!
I loved how they turned out!

Here is a photo of all 3 hanging in my family room.

Loved making the catepillar and adding googly eyes.

I think the flower may be my favorite!

I couldn't resist adding a little owl.
My friend is a big fan of owls!

They were not that hard to make, and I would encourage you to give them a try.
I bought the canvases for $3 each at Big Lots, and I purchased felt and fat quarters of fabric from Joann's.

My Menu for the Week

Not for sure what is going on with Blogger, but I cannot upload photos at the moment.
Hopefully, it will be fixed soon, because I have several projects that I have worked on that I want to share with you!

Over the Rainbow Blog Hop

Welcome to the Over the Rainbow blog hop! One of the things scrappers love most is COLOR! During this journey you'll encounter all seven colors of the rainbow and some of our favorite things about those colors. In order to play along all you need to do is leave a comment on each blog saying what you love about the color featured on each blog. You can even just tell us your favorite thing (scrappy or not) that is that color! Once you reach the Pot of Gold, post ROY G. BIV!! and you're done and ready to start cropping with us!

Hi! thanks for visiting my blog! I am featuring the color INDIGO.  I live in a house full of guys, so Indigo is definitely a color of scrappiness in my world!  I mean, blue jeans are Indigo in color, and I love me some blue jeans!  I am also a big fan of blueberries and thunderstorm skies. 

**Make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win some fun scrappy supplies.  Photo to come later!

If you started with Jenny's blog with the color RED then you are almost done with your rainbow.  Your next stop is the color VIOLET at Krissy's blog.  Your Pot of Gold directions will be given once you check in there!!  Thanks for playing!

Be sure to join us at Have Your Way With Paper for our "Lucky You" Crop next weekend - fun and prizes for all!
