A Little "Pick Me Up"

Hey there peeps!  Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I sure did.  I had a house full of stampers here at my house on Saturday for stamp camp and that was fantastic.  We had lots of fun and they all seemed to enjoy making their projects.  I have photos and will post some after the second Button Buddies class on Tuesday.

We were so happy to have Brittany and Sam here for the night on Saturday.  Brittany and I (for those who don't know) have a small-ish photography business called Suitable For Framing Photography.  We do weddings, babies, seniors...you name it.  We've added a Facebook page and are in the process of adding to it to show some of our work.  Anyway...we had a final consult on Sunday with a bride and groom whose wedding we'll be shooting in September so they drove up so she could be there.  Also, Sam's sister is getting married in October and he needed to get fitted for his tux.  Win-Win!

After dinner in Old Town Saturday...Brittany and Sam  <3

Ok...here's a little project I designed as a little "Pick Me Up".  I loved this flower design when I saw it on another blog and I sat through the tutorial several times to figure out how to make the flowers!  Thanks, Frenchie, for your awesome tutorial!  Sometimes I'm a slow learner!  LOL

They are made with Designer Series Paper and a little glue.  They are really sweet in person. Once I had them all put together I added a stem and leaves.  I have them in a cute, little bottle filled with sand.
After the flowers were all done I designed a card to go with them.  
It's a "Z-Fold" card and it coordinates perfectly I think.

The stamp set I used is called "Thoughts and Prayers".  It's a great set to have in your collection.  Here are the images that are included:
