May Project Parade - Day 12

Good morning, it is Teresa.  I hope that everyone had a wonderful three day weekend, they are always great!  I am blown away by the divas projects, aren't you?  You have until June 7 to get your wonderful creation in for your chance to win.
I have created a Hand Fan/Church Fan, now I have to tell ya this was my husbands fabulous idea....I luv it!  I even looked up a little history(bottom of page) on these fans, it seems they are a status symbol as well as functional.  While I was creating it I was thinking back about the days as a young girl in church with my Mom and Aunt.  We used these in church back then, there was no air conditioning.  I had to add the white piece of trim for the nostalgia memory.  I used the Verve flowers from the set One Person.  The COOL sentiment is from the set Happy Days.  This would be perfect to take to ball games(cow bell attached....lol), lawn parties, and cook outs. 
The handle is a Lowe's paint stick.  I used white acrylic paint on the handle and then sanded it just a bit.
I made it 6 x 6, using a heavy duty watercolor paper(given to me by a friend).  I attached my 6 x 6 finished pages to the watercolor paper and then attached the stick and pages with Scor Tape.  It is super heavy duty and works wonderfully.
This is a picture of the back, using the matching designer paper from Cosmo Cricket DeLovely.  I will be in the tiki hut with my hand fan if you are looking for me....lol.

As with all of our Project Parades, we’ve got prizes! There are two ways to win:

1. Play along with us and link up your new Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creation (posted May 17 or later) to the linky widget on the Day 1 parade post before midnight on June 7th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store. Verve Stamps are not required, but we LOVE to see 'em!

2. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout-out in the comments section as we parade our Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creations. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (May 17 ~ June 4) will win the Verve stamp set of their choosing!
