Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.  Let’s start with a bit of news.
First the sad news – Tracy has decided to close the Sugar Creek Hollow store effective today and she has put a little note for her followers on the store site, which you can read by clicking here.
This is also my last week on the Sugar Creek Hollow team. Thank you Tracy for such a wonderful term and best of luck in all you do!
But now the good news – we will be keeping the challenge blog open and will be coming back next week with some exciting changes.

I have my nephew coming over to visit today…he will be two in August. I am so excited. =) I haven’t had the pitter patter of little feet and the infamous diaper swoosh tromping through our home in a looooong time.  It’s going to be fun!

Paper Romance Challenge #46

14 Apr
Good Morning!  Today is Challenge day over at Paper Romance.  Our challenge this week is to create a card or in my case packaging with a flower either homemade or store bought.  I had a prima flower in my stash so I used that.  
Love how this yummy bag turned out.  I used some ribbon and a doily from my Etsy shop, the little tag is Studio Calico and the hand written sentiment says “thinking of you”.  The paper I used is from Crate paper – Emma something.
Make sure to visit the Paper Romance Challenge blog to be uber inspired. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Updates

12 Apr

Well I am still here, but for now here is a picture of my little one, ok so he is not so little anymore. LOL!
I had fun playing around with the desaturation and boosting the contrast.

I will be checking in  a couple of days with a card for Paper Romance and Sugar Creek Hollow.

We are also having a revival at church and it’s beautiful!  Thank you Lord.

Blessings,

Mary
