I decided while I was working in my studio today to try and get a few challenges in. This projects involves another Papertrey Peeps challenge found HERE. I also incorporated a Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge to use pins that I found HERE. Now I don't have any Flourishes stamp sets yet but I had a pin that I kept meaning to use. I added a couple of fun beads to the crystal pin and I really like the results. The Papertrey Peeps challenge used a quilted appliqued piece as inspiration. I chose to do layers in a shabby chic way as well as pull in the purple of the flowers. I really wanted to use flowers as well but ended up using butterflies instead. Overall I am pleased with it!

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.
