 Meet my mom, Peggy, (and my dog Tucker's mommy Tootsie) from who I am blessed to inherit all my creative craftiness!! She was the best crafty mentor a girl could ask for. From baking, to sewing to everything in between I think we did it all. I am so lucky to have such wonderful memories and such gifted talents. Thanks Mom!! 
 
 
For her I created this 5x7 frame that holds a special saying from Authentique.
I really like the way it came out and think she will love having this sit on her dresser as a reminder of how much we love her! Since she is in Colorado we don't get to see her often enough.

You know when you get an idea in your head and you think it is going to be amazing? And then you start making it and find out that it really isn't going to be as amazing as you thought? Well, welcome to my scenario.

For the past few weeks I have been showcasing panels from (what I had hoped would be) my Springtime wreath. Well, it just isn't going to work. It's not coming together the way I intended and I am beyond frustrated. LOL!
So on to plan B.
A Spring time Banner!! YAY!
 

So for my project this week at LoveBug Creations I am featuring panel #3 using Dahlia Rumple Ribbon from the Southern Sass Collection for my pretty Butterfly. Come on back next week when I put this whole thing together!!  I hope this turns out!! Fingers crossed!!
