The Challenge #34 and A Big Day

A challenge calling for yellow, orange and green screams "flower" to me.


In this case a Lily from Penny Black watercolored with Distress Ink on a SSS stitched square turned on its side.  It's popped up and a sentiment from Clearly Besostted was added along the side.  This is on it's way to The Challenge at Always Playing With Paper.

It's a BIG day today.  Not only is it the 17th birthday of my grandchildren but it's my parent's 73rd Wedding Anniversary. The triplets had their party last weekend but today the Living Center is having a party for my folks.  I've pulled out some old photos to have on display (back to my scrapbooking roots for that).  It's so much fun to go back and reminisce. Here's one that was taken at my granddaughter's wedding 5 years ago.


Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.
