SPIRAL FLOWER DIE TOPIARY!

Okay, so I see another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Lynn Weiss, has created this awesome topiary, and I love it.  I jokingly send it to "That Michelle" and ask if she is up for making it.  Of course, "That Michelle" is the only person I know personally who would tackle such an adventure.  And tackle it we did.  I took on the responsibility of covering the pots, painting dowels, putting foam in the pots and adding the ribbon.  "That Michelle" made the flowers.  Today we got together finished the flowers, plugged in the glue guns and we were off!  It was a wonderful time, and I ended up cutting enough more flowers that I can put another one together.  "That Michelle" is going to put three more together~~she is the woman!!  Here is how it turned out.
When they are side by side like this, they sort of look like "That Michelle" and I.  I am, of course, the shorter one, and "That Michelle" is the taller one with the bright yellow bird.

Here is an up close view of what the flowers look like.
I am going to Lansing next weekend, and I will probably be taking my flowers so I can roll them and put my other topiary together there.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.  Thanks so much, Lynn, for sharing your creativity and "That Michelle" for making me think it was possible, and then making it possible!!
