Faux Flowers

My oldest daughter turns 4 today. It's so sad how quickly time goes - it seems like yesterday when I was cradling her in my arms looking at how amazing all her tiniest features were and thinking how blessed my hubby and I were. Now that I'm welling up...
Yesterday we had her butterfly party, so much fun and today we'll recoup and enjoy her! So this will be a quick post. If you have any questions please contact me (via the link to the right)
I made this little bouquet for her. She loves chocolate... definitely my girl... so the bottom of the vase is filled with Hershey Kisses. I used RubOns to pretty up the vase(these particular ones are retired, but any will work on glass TIP: for decoration ONLY, washing will take the rub-ons off.)The OnBoard Chipboard Blossoms are placed on pixie sticks (she doesn't need to know these are edible - pure sugar!) I covered the 'naked' Chipboard with either pattern paper or cardstock and I punched out Certainly Celery ovals with my Oval Punch, cut them slightly to resemble leaves. So cute!!
For now, go kreate
