GYSO #14: Dinner Theater 2009

I just discovered a new scrapbook challenge blog...Get Your Sketch On, aka GYSO! *happy dance* What a great sketch and the DT samples are beautiful!

I've used the last bit of my CTMH Everlasting paper :( I really like the vintage and elegant feel to these papers. The photo is DH and I just before going to see the Christmas show at the Rainbow Dinner Theater in Lancaster. Several years ago we gave my parents tix as a gift. They raved about the food and the acting, so we got season tix. The shows are all comedies and we really look forward to getting out of the house and having a good laugh :)
I wanted to try a little something different on this LO, so instead of just gluing on my beloved paper flowers that I ALWAYS use, I decided to try my hand at some rolled paper flowers. I've seen them everywhere, loved the look, but just never took the time. Here is a closer look...I think they turned out pretty well for my first attempt :~)

Other supplies used:
Fiskars Apron Lace border punch
CM circle cutter
tag punch(Marvy)
silver brads (MM)
Cranberry ribbon (CTMH)
Holiday buttons (CTMH)
twill ribbon from my stash


  1. You both look fabulous for your night out on the town (: Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous Lisa!!! I'm just packing for a weekend crop I'm going to next weekend and was thinking instead of packing my flowers this time I'm going to try and make some!! I'm like you I love the look but have never tried to make them!
    Thanks for all of the sweet comments you leave for me (:


  2. Your rolled flowers are so beautiful! The perfect accent for this pretty page.
