There's a spring in my step

because the weather is beautiful today, I have an itch to get plants and dig in the earth but it is a little too early yet... it may turn cold again so instead I made a spring like Shrine.. I have to admit I have a bit of a soft spot for shrines... it's because they are story packed into a small space... I have  birds and eggs and faeries on my mind, well that's nothing new in the faeries but the bird thing is new... the box came from a christmas present.

It had teabags in but oh my! I took one look at the triangle shaped  box and knew It would become something beautiful....  

And I still have the top of the box to play with, Oh what joy!

Hey Wendy,
Everything you make is so beautiful! I was wondering where to get the wonderful supplies from without going totally broke. I would love to learn to do this but it seems the only way to get stuff is to pay a pretty penny.

to anwser to question yes sometime do pay over the odds for a really nice scrap booking paper but then I use ever peice, saving the small ends for adding to tags.. the flowers are a good buy because you get alot. I buy the large pads of scrapbooking paper when they are on sale...for this project I used moss from walmart a bag lasts me ages. the birds were from a pack of scrap at Micheals and they came with 25 other images for about $5 and I will use them in other projects.. I always look in the sale bins for ribbon and if I see something I really love but then think I could make it myself to save some money... I mean Micheals will charge you up to $7 for paper flowers and ribbon flowers and they are so easy to make yourself... I hope that helps...hugs Wendy oh! and my best tip is ink, a brown ink on the egdes of any paper, flowers or images will make them look wonderful
