Just Us Girls #130 - Using Zippers!

Happy Saturday!  Is everyone getting ready for Spring Break?  I've got four more work days next week and then I'm done for a week and a day!  So much going on this month too!  But the best thing going on today is the Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge!  This only happens when there are five weeks in the month, and then the hostess gets to choose whatever type of challenge she so desires!  This week our very talented and immensely cheerful hostess is Elise!  She chose to have us use zippers on our creations!  Oh so fun!
 This is what I created with a normal, everyday zipper....a pretty flower!  Couldn't you see this as a nest if it was in brown?  Darn, I wish I had a brown zipper!  That's another project to write down for the future!  I just rolled the zipper, secured it with some hot glue, then added some pretty pearls in the center!  I added stacked strips of paper from Crate Paper's Portrait Collection and scalloped the edges.  The sentiment on the self-made banner is from So Sentimental stamp set from My Time Made Easy.  I added the leaves using a PTI die (can't remember which one!), and voila!!  Done!
 Here's the fabby sketch I used from Clean and Simple.  I thought this was so cool! 
 The JUGs design team has some equally fabby inspiration for you on the JUGs blog.  We also are bidding a fond farewell to our March Featured Designer, Marisa Ritzen. She did a marvelous job for us this month!  Here are the blogs you can visit for that inspiration I was telling you about.


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Enjoy your stay!

Most people HATE working with zippers. They are tricky little suckers to sew with!!:) However, this brings them into a whole new light!!!! Beautiful.
