Simon Says..........


Hi all!! I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Today I decided to put the housework aside while my little man was taking his nap to do some crafting!! And boy am I happy I did!! I really needed some "ME" time!!

So for today's project I decided to do something a little different than a card (scary thought, I know), so I created a door hanger. I have had this thing in my stash for....well, I really don't want to admit it so we will just leave it at that!! Haha. I joined in with this weeks challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Pin It!!! I really loved this weeks challenge and just couldn't wait to create!! 
So this is what I came up with!! All my flowers are handmade by yours truly!! I think I've found a new obsession!! ;) Anyways, I have fun little trinkets all over the place!! A domino, gear, compass, bingo piece!! So fun!! I used some Maya Road leaf stick pins and a Michaels chalkboard clothes pin as my "pin it's"!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
