The pleated flower medallions were made from old book paper. Then I cut a Spellbinders Labels 5 die, and embossed it with a cuttlebug folder and then touched up the embossed areas with a light blue ink pad.
A heart was the perfect center, especially with a cute little sentiment such as S.W.A.K.
I hung one on each side of the antique china cabinet in my dining room ... my mom would be pleased! The cabinet first belonged to my grandma, then to my mom, and now to me. And I cherish the memories it holds. Later this month on January 28, it will be one-year since my mom went to her heavenly home. You see that flag on top of the china cabinet? It was from mom's funeral -- she was a World War II veteran. This is a very special room in my house for sure! The last year has held many emotions for me. I miss her so. But not enough to wish her back ... heaven is lucky to have her and my dad. There is indescribable peace in knowing that Jesus welcomed them home!
