I am participating in the challenge that you can find HERE at Becky's blog. It was difficult to work with this color scheme but I do like how it turned out. Really out of my comfort zone. Even though there were specific requirements like white embossed flower on Raspberry Fizz and a flourish stamped on Terracotta Tile, it still took me almost 2 hours to complete this. The flourish really is there ~ guess it didn't photograph well. You can see it if you click on the photo for a larger image. First I experimented with several different flowers until I got one I liked. Then the process of cutting out the flower and leaves. I did enjoy the time crafting though.

I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
