Have you ever seen those cute lollipop flowers? Well I've been learning to make them the last couple of days. They are really kinda cool once you get going on them. You can make them BIG or small, any size you want really. The first picture is my first one and you can see I got to much paint on my top layer and then try to wipe it off making it worst. lol
I'm so not a crafty person but I'm learning and I do put time into what I make. Honestly I know I have some improvements to make but I'm willing to learn and LOVE to hear constructive criticisms, it helps me learn and grow in the scrapbooking world. Here are a couple more I put together.

So my good friend who is 46 got married to finally!! Yes her first marriage!! On sweetest day her now hubby ask her to take his hand in marriage. Of course she said yes!! Well about 3 weeks later she had a double stroke and almost lost her life. The stroke affect her left side pretty bad, she had to learn(still learning)to do a lot of things we all take for granted, like walking, writing, etc. It's shocking to be so young and have simple things taken away for a reason unknown. She is still in therapy 3 times a week for 2 hours at a time. Well today was the happiest day of her life, she married the man of her dreams!! :-) Her sweet sister through this beautiful wedding together in 2 weeks!! I'm so happy for her so I wanted to share a couple of pictures.

"on wed i was not to excited that day. my kids were home on a snow day of no school, we were missing kids club which i enjoy doing at my church and it now meant i had to cook supper as we usually eat at the church on wed's. At about 4pm, i bundled myself up and walked to check the mail, knowing full well i wasnt going to do it today thurs with the dangerously -15 degrees with windchill in the -20's. im glad i checked the mail on wed as i had a key in my mailbox. it was for the BIG packages mailbox. i grabbed it and all the mail and trudged my cold body back home. i thought this was a box train i had signed up for and it got sent out and i didnt know it. WRONG!!!! i opened it and a note fell out:
"Nikki, I hope you enjoy this RAK and find a few things you can use! i was thinking if u didnt like some of the patterned paper u could turn it over and use the white side. Enjoy, Dont ya just love cafemom! I included a mini book for your DD :)"
in this box i found TONS of paper about 100 sheets although i didnt count its a guess. Then as i keep pulling stuff out, i find this sack full of different sorts of embellies brads, stickers, flowers, tags, TONS! i get yet another stack of long strips of papers with yet more tags, journalling boxes, photo mattes and stuff with scalloped type edges. i mean this is just amazing... this box was exploding with stuff and i am SOOOOOOOOOOO very grateful.
My mouth dropped open and i had tears. my kids surrounded me in the house and chanted "open it, open it". lol, they were amazed to see all this scrapbooking stuff come out of this one box. they were so amazed and said cool and neat stuff with everything they saw. my son read the note and said " what does RAK mean. i explained and he said WOW, that means someone u dont know was nice to u n is letting u have all this stuff? so not only did u cheer me up, but u showed my kids that people do things for others out of the kindness of their own hearts to someone u dont know! THANK YOU!!!!
to this person that sent this. if u coulda seen the reactions of me and my children, u woulda been crying! it was a joyous heart warming moment. I thank you so very very much! btw: like a FEW things, A FEW??? lol, try every thing u sent will be put to good use.... lol. i loved it all, and the paper my kids where with me going thru the paper and they would say.. christmas, easter, 4th of july, mine, his, hers, girly, that would be a cute christmas one, oh wow, look at that one mom, awwwwwww, i love it. i think im gonna have to fight (to use some of this paper) with my children. now the fun part.... where do i put it all? because my supply is, now has, been so small, i fit it all on a lil tv stand in my bedroom and now im thinking... im gonna have to figure something else out on organizing...lol. hey im not complaining, im excited!!!!
again, THANK YOU MYSTERY PERSON!!!!! i cant say it enough, but please know that u gave me happy tears and taught children what can be done when a person has kindness in their hearts for another. "

Here is a LO I did for a challenge that had to have light blue & white and red & white patterned paper with a white cardstock for a background. Then it had to have light blue or white ric rac and red & white polka dot ribbon. You could add any other embellishments as long as they were Red, white or light blue. :-)
So I got mine done but while I was working on it yesterday, I was inking my tag(with the date) I drop the darn ink pad, of course it fell upside down on my LO. So that half circle down in the left hand corner was not planned but had to be!! :-)
