Petaloo Blog Hop - Day 6!

Greetings and Happy Saturday to you!
Exciting news and super fun week for us here on the blog...

We are so thrilled to be partnering all this week with our friends at Petaloo!

It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you and share my project featuring Petaloo and our brand new collection called "Sheer Joy".  

I used one of my recent favorite photos of our boys to use as the focal point so I can give this to my husband for Father's Day. This particular day the kids decided they wanted to we are the exact same clothes to be "twins".  I made sure to take a few photos. 

I created the base shadow box frame from white cardstock to begin.  The Petaloo Fancy Trims in Shades of Teal was used for the hanger.

Once I had my design idea figured out, the fun part was layering in the Petaloo elements onto the shadowbox. I touched a bit of Blue Lagoon onto my Ivory Mixed Textured Layers and put together with a green pearl brad in the right bottom corner.

I added a few pretty die cuts to accentuate the depth of the shadowbox and I loved the character and texture that the burlap and textures from Petaloo added to my project!

I thought this might have been made using the the back side of a canvas, then I read that you mdke the box. Great idea and a money saver. This is something dad will enjoy hanging in his office or work area - to show off his handsome family. Thanks for the idea

Just seeing your picture brought back a couple of happy memories of my two boys. Your shadow box will be treasured for years♥

Wonderful, brilliant way to highlight a great picture and create something for Dad. The layers are delightful and the flowers make great accent and depth without being feminine. Thanks for sharing.
