Flower wreath!

Hello there!!  My goodness this week is just flying by! I have a fun project  (Aren't they all!?  I feel like I say that a lot, but I truly love what I do!!)  to share with you today!  This was inspired by the very talented Patty Bennett.  I changed it up a little bit, but her idea is what got me all excited about this!! 

I must admit that this was a time consuming project!  Not something that I could just whip up in 20 minutes!  It was fun though!  Lots of flowers had to be punched out and then matched up and then I pulled apart the layers of all of them to make it look fuller.

I added a few leaves here and there and a few butterflies!  

Everything is hot glued in place.  Lots of happy Spring colors!

I used chip board for the base ring and ribbon for the hanger.  It was fun putting it together!
It is a great project for a lazy Sunday afternoon!

Onto other things!!

I also wanted to share a couple photos of one of my kiddos!  I have four kids and my universe revolves around them! They are all such amazing people and I am so, so, so proud of them all!  Our youngest son is a volunteer firefighter, is getting ready to start college, is an avid star gazer (he was outside last night in the frigid temps with his telescope gazing at the moon!) and he loves soccer!  These photos are from his last soccer game.  This is an indoor sport and it is a super fast paced game!  

Here he is (in black) doing a rainbow kick (with style)!

Kicking the ball in.

Going for the ball.

He is #77 and this was right before he scored a goooooooal!!!!! :)

We are a big soccer family!  All of our kids have played, hubby and I have both coached and we all love to watch it! :)

I am off to tackle my to do list!

Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

Oh, this is so pretty and makes me wish it was 60 instead of 30 right now...
Great action shots too! Love the one with the rainbow kick that looks like he's posing!
