Miss Bo Peep

I hope that all you Ladies and Mothers had a wonderful Mother's Day. To my surprise I had 24 rose delivered to my door Fed Ex by my son and daughter. Such a wonderful surprise. The roses were a mix of red, orange, pink and yellow.... all so very lovely. The prettiest one was the one that reminded me of my mom's favorite...a yellow rose with red and orange edges. I did a tribute to my wonderful mother last year on this blog post. It shows her favorite rose and shadow box. Check it out here.

Well, it's been almost a year now and we are gearing up for my one year anniversary blog hop. It has been such a pleasure getting to know some of my followers and players. We now have way over 200 followers at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. It's been great and we're still rising. I hope you will mark your calendar and play along with us for some fun.

This week's sponsor is Pixie Dust Stuido. They are giving away two images of the winner's choice. They have such darling images. You will want to run over to their store and check them out. I knew when I saw Miss Bo Peep I had to do her. I had so much fun picking out the papers to match the pattern in the dress. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without my sewing. There are very few cards that I don't do sewing on. The design team at Sweet Sketch Wednesday has cooked up some darling cards using the sweet Pixie Dust Stuido images.

I will be spending my fun week with my sister, Judi, who is a delight to be with and do crafting with. Judi and Nancy have been such a wonderful support to me and my blog lately and I want to thank them for all of their continued help and support. Thanks to all my followers for all your continued support and for all your sweet comments. Have a wonderful sweet week.
