flower pots, flower pots and MORE flower pots

Hello There!!!! It's been a tad quiet around here this past few days... SORRY!!!! But I have a VERY good reason for that, and I'm going to show you what it was that's been keeping me so very busy.

My GORGEOUS Ella Bella is turning ONE in a few weeks... ONE!!!! And apart from the usual "Mummy find it hard to come to terms with" moments, and the "where on earth did that YEAR go" thoughts!!!! I've been BUSY, BUSY making her sweet little birthday party invitations.

NOW.... for those of you that know me, or have been visiting for a wee while, you'll also know that I tend to go a BIG BIT crazy with these little projects, and well this one is no exception.... ME and my ideas!!!!!!

So.... want to see.....:-

Here is the group shot!!!!... Yep 20 odd of these delightful little flowerpots... that's 20 flower pots, 60 odd flowers and well, I've lost count of the leaves, and YEP... I cut them ALL out!!!! CRAZY right!!!!. I must admit, I did have the occassional... "What on earth was I thinking" moment, but... I'm so glad I did them... they're soooo cute!!!

Here's one in all its cute glory.... they really are sweet and in the singular form, REALLY fun and easy to make.

Here's what the inside looks like when you slide it out of the little flower pot.

So there you go... that's what's been keeping me so busy this week. Now I just have to POST them all oh and decide what cake to make and plan the little party... oh I do love being a MUMMY!!!!

Oh these are precious! But 20 of them?! I recall many times when I wished for a punch shaped like several of the images in Bodacious Bouquet and I could wager you were thinking the very same part way through these babies!

Great work SJ!

They're fabulous Sarah, but where do you find the time, not to mention the patience! Hope you keep copies of all these things so the girls know what you did when they're older!
