I figured that some MME Sunshine papers would be appropriate considering the sentiment I chose, which is a new one from Verve, this set is called Doodled Occasions. I cut out a Curvy Bookplate die, sponged the edges, dotted the perimeter with liquid pearls and laid that atop a Quinn Flourish die cut. The perimeter edges are distressed and sewn. I wanted the yellow fabric flower to really stand out so I added some muted tulle accents around it.

We all plan on doing this again next year...in fact, my daughter told me she wanted to be my "muddy buddy' next year.
I wanted to take a minute to let Cheryl (our fitness instructor) from Bella Body Fitness to know that if she wasn't such a great instructor, super cheerleader and all around wonderful person, I know that I would not have pushed myself to do this. She has given my confidence a huge boost and I can never thank her enough!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
