    So many lovely projects that i'd really not like to have to judge this contest, but my absolute fave is the entry from the adorable Jennifer Scull, both ideas are awesome and as much as i think Jennifer is wonderful im also beginning to think shes a bit of a pain in the bum (only joking love) but im now having to clear the shelves in the supermarket of the wee glass bottles and find enough burlap cos my 4 kiddiewinkles are now planning on recreating the milk bottles to hold all the daffodils the wee buggers  darlings have picked out of the garden… i think i might just have 1 or 2 left now lol.

    So glad my entry is not the deciding factor. That spring time bucket is adorable.  Then of course, I knew those pockets were Cheryls as soon as I saw them (love the colors girl!).  Then how can you not love the uniqueness of the spools…… so vintage and lovely, Oh, Oh and sassy's tags- geesh, did I say I am glad I do not have to choose?

I like to see what other people do.. so both of those truly inspire me.. 🙂   Leslie Rayhe, another MIxed Media Monday pal!!  Love your bag.. I love the flowers and your use of the burlap (I think that's what the fabric is called)  super cute!!  Finally, Most elegant.. the Fantasy Necklace.. I stared at this piece over and over again.. trying to figure everything you did.. ONLY to see you dd a video!!  WHO DOESN'T APPRECIATE a video!!  I know I do!!  Truly GOREOUS!!  If I was a Girly Girl.. I would ROCK that!! lol.. So , so pretty.. New subscriber as well..

    I wouldn't want to be the ribbonista to have to choose, they were all amazingly creative and gorgeous, but my favs are the pot of flowers, the mouse with the clouds and the spools. May have to try doing something like that. but the shoes were totally springy too!
