Happy Mother's Day and my first Helmar post!!!!

Hi everyone!!

Thanks for all the love on my announcement about being Bo Bunny's GDT for the summer! I truly appreciate it!


I wanted to wish all the Mama's out there (and I am counting the fur-baby mama's, the surrogate mama's, the birth mama's, the aunts, the foster mama's... all the mama's everywhere...) a VERY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!!

I wanted to share some Mama's day cards that I made for a special Mama's day post we are having over on Nikki Sivils blog!!!



And today is my very FIRST Helmar blog post!! I hope you can come over and leave me some love!!!!!

 
My family and I are moving into a new (dream!) home at the end of this month, and when you first walk in there is our new big dining room! So as soon as I saw the big wall of the dining room, I knew I wanted to make some canvasses for that wall!


I found big wooden alphas at Michaels and I had a 'collage' theme in my head
Julie Helmar 1

-- so I used Helmar's Craft Glue and cut some Crate paper and adhered it to the alphas!

Once the glue was dry, I cut the excess paper around each alpha!
Then I used Helmar's Craft Glue again to adhere the alphas to my canvasses!


Here is my finished canvasses! (The canvasses are each 18x20)
