Etsy Inspired #117--12.1.10

  Hey all!! Happy Saturday. Ugh....raising my voice to junior highers did not bode well this week, as now my voice has completely died. It doesn't hurt, but it's hard to get noise out. Winter break cannot come fast enough. But, onto fun things. This week's shop is Paper Seeds Paper Design. I know that I am definitely a FAN of this shop. She uses a lot of the flowers that I LOVE to roll!! Even better, I had some already made in my scrap pile from Pink Paislee's Sweetness collection .  This shop upcycles a lot of great products. Upcylcling is when you take products and use them for a new purpose. One example of upcycling is the prize that  Paper Seeds Paper Design is awarding one winner.

More examples of her fabby style!

And, now for the piece that I was inspired by

I of course was inspired by my last name being a part of the title, no doubt and the ADORABLE
rolled paper flowers. Here's my take:

I mixed in some cardstock rolled flowers with patterned paper rolled flowers.
I love Aqua Mist cardstock from Papertrey Ink
