Sentimental Sundays Cute & Cuddly

It's time for a new Sentimental Sundays challenge. This week our challenge is "Cute & Cuddly". Don't forget a sentiment! We also have a special guest designer joining our team this week. My 9-year old daughter has joined the fun. Please stop by her blog to check out her project (and leave a comment. She loves them!)

I made this flower using some old fabric and tulle that I found in the basement. The tulle is pink and was left over from a princess birthday party for my daughter from several years ago. I was inspired by this tutorial from Linda, the Funkie Junkie. The textured, brown piece was punched out of a Starbucks coffee sleeve. I love the texture of these things.

Thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to join in the Sentimental Sundays "Cute & Cuddly" challenge. The challenge is being sponsored by Heart Song Designs. Stop by the blog to see all the lovely creations from the DT and to get the challenge details.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
