Glue (and tape) it Tuesday – paper flowers

I was at Hobby Lobby this past weekend, buying some small paintbrushes I needed when I saw other things on sale.  You see, I’ve been planning to make some layered paper flowers so I thought I’d look around for supplies.  I found the brads, but no paper flowers.  So I put the brads back. After walking around the store some more, I found some small packages of cut flowers of various colors and sizes.  Just what I was looking for.  When I reached the check-out aisle, I realized that I had forgotten the brads.  Darn!  

“Silly me.  I returned the brads to the shelf at Hobby Lobby 
and have the flowers by themselves.”

I really need a shopping list when I go into any store (stay tune for this week’s AlphabeThursday post).
Monday I went to court and now my divorce is final. All but the paperwork, which needs one more signature – my X's!  When I met with my attorney last week, he said everything was moving along so quickly. Not like his usual cases.  He was just about to ask me if I wanted my maiden name back when he looked down at the Order Exhibit in his hands; 

“Oh, you already have your name,” he said. “Yep” I replied.

No glue over at Aimee's Artsyville blog but there is a lot of tape!

Sorry to hear about your divorce, but I'm glad that it has moved along quickly for you, rather than dragging on. Your flowers look good alone, but I can imagine the frustration of walking out without the brads!

I love Hobby Lobby and I have been know to sing that! Love your page brads or no brads. I am so sorry to hear about your divorce & my heart goes out to you not being able to imagine all the heartache you must have been going through. I said a prayer for you.

I love paper flowers! I've also used little gems or a blog of glitter glue in the middle of them before too.

And I love how the Your Name plays into the conversation and page :)

Hobby Lobby sales are dangerous things! It's my favorite of the chain craft stores, for sure. Sadly the nearest one is about a half hour drive from me. I love your flowers! They look very pretty as is. =)

Your flowers are great with or without the brads!

I'm glad for your sake that the divorce is not dragging itself out.

On the subject of the flowers, you know I love them! I work with them nearly every day. What you did looks great, but you can use lots of things besides brads: buttons, beads, pearls, sequins, even embroidery stitches.
