Hi Everyone!

Saturday morning I went to a flower making class at my Local Scrapbooking Store.  I always enjoy learning something new- and I LOVE my LSS- so it was a pretty good day!

Friday, on the other hand was not a good day.  I have horrible allergies to all things outdoors.  These are allergies that I have developed as an adult (which kind of stinks!)- and this week has been rough in the sinus department!  Friday I took enough medication to knock out a small village but the only thing that helped was sleep (about 75% of the day).

Which brings me back to the flower class on Saturday.  I love paper flowers.  I love everything about them.  I especially love that they do not make my head explode when I get near them!  :)

My girls and I agree that the ribbon flower (tag #2) is by far the cutest, so once I get some ribbon to make some more of them, I'll post a little tutorial.  I can't believe I didn't buy ribbon when I was at the store! (I'm guessing it's because my head nearly exploded Friday and I'm not fully recovered!)  LOL!

Check out the challenge at 

Hope you all have a great Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Julie, Love your Paper/Ribbon Flowers. I have been trying to figure out the new Flower Shoppe cart...These are the closest thing to outdoors I can be as well.
    I feel for you my friend. I live in the Ohio Valley. We're usually in the top 3 for Allergies. It's Ragweed season through September. If you can, stay indoors as much as possible...September will pass. When you have Sinus and allergy issues, they seem to be year round. Hope you feel better soon.
    Have a good rest of the weekend. Can't wait for the Flower tutorial.
