Parade of pink.

I made this sign for Tangee's Pinkalicious swap.  Her blog is titled Sparkly Messy Life, and I think pink, oodles of ribbon, glitter and this Bible verse are so fitting.
I have a problem with holding on to fabric.  Sometimes it is really hard to use my last pieces.  But if I don't make something with them, what is the point of even having them?  I have been hanging on to these Amy Butler prints for a while, and had just enough to make her a sassy apron and hobo bag big enough to tote scrapbook supplies in.
I added flip flops, scrapbook supplies, a crazy patchwork fabric journal, pink funky frame and one of my favorite sewing books to the mix.  Happy crafting Tangee!  I look forward to seeing you put your sewing machine to good use.
I have been making mainly collage signs lately and I loved changing it up a bit to make this birth announcement sign for a sweet baby girl's homecoming.  I am hooked on adding vintage prints to signs now.  If only Google Image search didn't pull up such random and unrelated (even creepy)  junk!
I am also hooked on Savannah Lane Designs.  I just ordered this sweet beanie for a certain little niece to wear during our upcoming lake vacation.  I am just imagining the pictures of the cousins right now.  Edible!
Enjoy your weekend... I suppose pink is a weird theme for father's day....  tomorrow will be blue and very manly.
