Paper Jewels Saturday~Mimosa with Watering Can

Wow...I feel like I have forgotten my poor little old blog the past two weeks. I'm so sorry! I love my blog to death and I just love everyone that comes by to see what I have been working on and I'm trying to get myself caught up here. From being at DisneyLand Paris to having my wisdom teeth pulled on Thursday...ugh...I just can't find the steam to keep moving and keep caught up!
Today was my day to post over at Paper Jewels. I used Mimosa with Watering Can for my post today. I promise you I have ordered a TON of new goodies from Paper Jewels and as soon as I have them I will be playing with them and showing you some of the fab new things that Jenny has in her store. Wonderful new images...not that I don't love my Mimosa's!!! ;)
Now...my wonderful, dear friend and blogger group gal has been making these wonderful flowers for a bit now and I wanted to see just how easy they were to do...so thank you so much AnnMarie (you must check our her blog to see all her amazing flowers and other work too). Here is the link to the original place that AnnMarie and myself got the tutorial for these Paper Pleasing Ideas. These were TOTALLY easy to do. Just follow the tutorial and if you don't have a paper crimper...because I don't...just do all the creases by hand...I just sat for a few minutes twirling and crumbling paper between my fingers while catching up on my blogger gals chatting! Super easy and Super cute!
I tried to get a close up of the flowers but it just didn't come out very well for me.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. After this post is finished...I'm headed to the couch to lay down before bed...my head is KILLING me!
