Land of the Free Home of the Brave

Again with the sideways picture. As I try to correct this, The little boy is cut from A Childs' First Year, The Lady Bug from Walk in My Garden, The banner from Freshly Picked and the USA from Stand and Salute. I sewed a casing on my paper and slipped a wooden dowel inside. The little flag pin is made of safety pins and seed beads. I hung patriotic wired stars and flags through a hole punched at the bottom of the sign. The striped grosgrain ribbon is Offray and the paper is Bazzil. I will work on the photo display but you get the idea! 
God Bless the USA

Summer means sundresses

I made these for my granddaughter Makayla. I love adding accessories like hair decor, purses and hats.

On The Road Again Challenge

For this challenge, I did something I have considered for a while. I saved one of Michaels' McD's Happy Meal containers. Covered it with scrapbook paper. Tied tinted seam binding to the handle. Added some tulips of course cut from Freshly Picked, and the word LITTER from Kates' ABCs. I clipped a grocery bag inside with old fashioned hair clips. I put the hook side of the velcro on the botton so it sticks to the carpet in the car. Now I have a cute little waste bin in the car. ~Enjoy

My Way Challenge

I loved the potted flower card. I had to do a tulip of course! I used my favorite one from Freshly Picked. I used some sewing around the edges, pink twine, dyed seam binding, dyed skittles and toled edges. I hope you like it.
