New Paper A La Mode Challenge

Happy Saturday, friends.  Today is a busy day for me.  I've got tons of errands to run and my daughter is cashing in one of her Christmas coupons for lunch.  I made her a coupon book and gave it to her for Christmas.  There are coupons for lunches together, playdates at the park, game nights, snuggling and a movie.  Just different things so that she can pick when we spend time together.  We are together all day every day, but I figured this way, she would feel special being able to cash in her coupon and have Mommy's attention all to herself.

Our new challenge over at Paper A La Mode (must become a member of The Outlawz to participate) is "Flowers".  Our sponsor this week is Scrapbook Stamp Society and the prize is 2 images from Sherry's store.

The Design Team used Sherry's images and this is what I came up with:
This little cutie is called Sweet Marylou Bestie.  I have really gotten into making my own flowers.  I don't know how to make anything but roses, but I can make them in the colors, patterns or sizes I need them.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope to see some of y'all's entries over at Paper A La  Mode this week.  Have a great weekend and God bless.
