Red Carpet Studios - Anything Goes: 3D Project

Good morning.  What are you up to today?  Are you having a good weekend.  This weekend it was in excess of 105 degrees here in TX.  I am so not used to this heat.  Thank goodness we have A/C & that we live a block away from the pool.  Now, what would be better is if we had a pool in our backyard, but not yet.  One of these years....

Today at Red Carpet Studios, a new challenge is posted.  This is a good one!  Anything goes!  Both the card & the layout teams came together for this one, & boy you should see some of the creations.  Be sure to head over there for some great inspiration!

The challenge runs from June 30th to July 6th, & is based on 3D Movies, & is exactly as I said, Anything Goes!  Our sponsor is The Paper Parade, & once you link your project, one lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate for their store!  What an awesome prize!!

The inspiration behind the project that I chose to do, came from Kid Serve (VBS) from church last week. I was in charge of the crafts for the kids, & what we did was make centerpieces for the tables at a local nursing home.  We used mason jars as the base, filled them with Mardi Gras beads, & made stars & little red firework like things to stick in like flowers. 

I spun my "centerpiece" in a different direction & used a round vase, filled with red, white, & blue Mardi Gras beads, wrapped a ribbon around the top, then made the roses with red, white, & blue paper & adhered them to each end of a pipe cleaner.  Then I folded the pipe cleaners in half & arranged my flowers as you see.  Viola!

 
 
A little time consuming, but at least I could sit & roll the flowers w/ the kids.  They didn't want to help so much, but they surely wanted the finished flowers. 
 
I hope that you liked my project today.  Don't forget to head over to RCS to enter for your chance to win.  Please stopped back & see me again soon!!
