Midweek Magnolias #3

A little update- The pancake breakfast fundraiser that we did for the Village Green Playstructure brought in $1800.00 (Canadian). It was so fun. The weather was great! My daughter and a couple other kids that were there were jumping up & down outside advertising it! Here's a snapshot! 

My daughter is in the green hat! 

And a couple of our volunteers! Thanks guys. In case your wondering, that is in fact Roberta (in the black) from PRAIRIE FAIRY DESIGNS! 


I just love how more and more people each week, come and find our challenge! 
What a great feeling, and it's not just because of us, it's because of all of you, making creations and playing along with our challenge!! Thanks so much!! 

Speaking of which, let's get to this weeks theme over at the MIDWEEK MAGNOLIAS  Challenge, shall we: 


Maybe you think I'm a bit sneaky here, but truly there is only 1 ribbon used......however I DID use it 3 times! Sneaky I know! My pearls are in the ribbon center and in the center of my 3 layered flowers. I sprinkled some purple tinted confetti to the butterfly edge. 
This is yet another butterfly shape for the wall hanging that is SLOWLY coming together for my daughter's room! Forgive me,I don't even know what the name of this Tilda is!!?>
Can you tell I'm trying to work on my light source coloring! Tricky, I tell ya! 

PS- We are also having a GDT call !! Interested! Go enter and put GDT behind your name!! Quickly! Go!

 I will be posting my butterfly over at the Steel Magnolias blog. For tons of more Magnolia inspiration, you must hop over there to take a look around! 

PSS- the Let's Ink It Up Challenge is open for a few more days as well. 

We sure hope you can come join in our recipe this week! We'd love to sample your creations at the MIDWEEK MAGNOLIAS  !!
