50th Anniversary: Dollywood – Glass Blowing
One of my nieces wanted to make a glass Christmas ornament at the Glass Blowing Shop at Dollywood. My mother helped her to do this, and this was one of her special memories from the day.
I chose the colors for this spread from the colors of the ornament that my niece made – red and blue. I cut the ornaments for this spread using my Cricut machine – and if you look carefully you can see the the blue sparkly cut actually made it onto the page in 3 different places. Starting on the right is the ornament – then next is the cutout of the ornament in a circle, and then the left hand page is the left over of that circle! I also did something similar with the two red ornaments and cutouts.
The journalling block on this page is the red circle inside the ornament on the right – my mother wrote on it after I took a picture of this spread. I cut a ribbon for the border on the left side of the page, and attached it to the backside of the cardboard with tape. I then used my sewing machine to stitch the start pattern on the border. I then placed a metal butterfly on the page over the border to remind the viewer of the Dollywood logo. The right hand border is some fuzzy ribbon that I attached to the back of the page using tape.
