Day 3 of the Glitter Games

It is Day 3 of Pats Glitter Games.  PK Glitz is coming to hold classes next week.  So here is my entry into day 3 challenge.  We were to use embossing on a project.
  I sometimes try my hand at jewelry making.

 I had these leaf skeletons and they were in a bright silver color.  Sorry about the bad picture

 I wanted to change the color so I embossed them using Not so Rusted Penny color.  Then I added a little butter fly bead. Added my earring hook to it and it was finished. I liked the outcome so I had a solid silver leaf and decided to change it also.  I used Bronze Patina on it and added a little feather.
I mentioned in an earlier post about a memorial bake & craft fund raiser we are having later in Scott's memory, so I will add this to the others that I am making for the sale.  I thought it would be a neat little way to gift the earrings  if  I would make a card for them to go on.  The front of the card has an leaf skeleton embossed on it with the little butterfly added.  On the inside of the card, the earrings are displayed.

Thanks Pat for letting me play along in the Glitter Games.

Last weekend was the bridal shower for my niece Ashley. Here she is as she came into the fellowship hall.

Pat at One Little Spark, cut out the favors for me.( She has all kinds of favor boxes and invite ideals)

This is the invitation Pat helped me design, she ordered just the right paper. Tiffany Blue. Also in the picture is the little wrist corsage I made for Ashley.
Here Ashley is opening up lots of wonderful gifts.  Seated beside her is my oldest niece Nancy, helping her keep a record of the gifts.
I have lots of wonderful nieces. This one is Deanna helping me decorate a mirror for the shower. ( no that is not gray hair you see on me *wink*)
And this niece is Jennifer, what an inspiration she is to all of us.  Since Jan. 24, 2012 she has lost 168 lbs. She deserves a lot of compliments on reaching her goal.

A banner I made using pictures of the soon to be married couple.
The fellowship hall half decorated, we forgot to take pictures of the finished product.
Everyone was asked to bring a bulb, or pkg of seeds so she could start a flower garden at her new home.
I know it is a long post, but I hope you enjoyed looking.
