Mosaic Moment

HI Everyone!!!  Wow, can you believe it has been a month since I was able to sit down and post.  I sincerely appreciate your patience and support while I was on travel for my University. One of the benefits of being on the road is the opportunity for new inspiration and reflection of creative ideas.  Nothing shouts louder in the area of creativity for me than Disney and while speaking at the SALT conference earlier this month, I had a chance to go visit the new Fantasyland.  As many of you know, Beauty and the Beast is my ABSOLUTE favorite Disney movie and the Beast is the BEST. So you can imagine how exciting it was for me to have a lunch break in "The West Wing"!!!!!  The Castle was fabulous in beauty and detail. The entrance displays a floor to ceiling mosaic that replicates the stained glass window scenes in the movie. I was in awe.  The image haunted me throughout the rest of my trips and I found myself pulling up the picture I took to be sure I did not miss any detail. This weekend when I finally had access to my crafting materials, I had to create my own.  Here is the card I made for my Mother (mailing it today) inspired by the B&B mosaic.  Definitely something different for me, but a fun way to use my Hybrid Roses stamp. 

News you can use :)...

  1. What a beautiful tribute. Even though our dad passed on April 2nd, 2010, his actual death was on "Good Friday" which will always be the day we remember as his last on the earth - the same as our Lord! Sent mom the photo that Carly took at Arlington. xoxoxo to you!

    Love Cookie!
