I had picked up some little cavas at Michaels in the dollar bins. They have been tucked away all forgotten for more than a year. They had nautical screen printing on them, but I figured I coulds still alter them....afterall....they were only a dollar. This is what they looked like when I bought them.
Here is the after

Many illnesses are related to smoking. Heart Disease (which I suffer with), lung cancer (which my grandfather died from and my sister suffers from), plus many many other health issues. You would think that these things would make a person not want to smoke, but smoking is a drug, just as bad as some of the illegal drugs running rampant on the streets. Smoking is HIGHLY addictive and the HARDEST thing I have ever tried to conquer!
Today is day 6 of being smoke free. I think I'm through the rough withdrawls. The tension in the neck and shoulders, snapping at anyone near me. Now I have to get through the wanting. I don't feel that I need it, I just want one. Pin It

I had sat down at my craft table several times throughout the week, and nothing was coming to me....ugh! I was beginning to get really nervous thinking I wasn't going to be able to create anything to turn in this week. Then last night, this vision came to me....yep....no joke!
For the bouquet, I took a length of cardstock and rolled it up, gluing the bottom. From the top, I cut strips going down. I rolled up the strips to make paper tendrils. I cut the leaves using the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge, inked them then adhered them in the center of all the curled up strips and adjusted them until I liked the way they looked. I cut different size flowers also using the Create A Critter cartridge. I inked them and also embossed them using the swirls and swiss dots folders. Curled them up a bit, added some gems, then adhered them.
