Show us your stuff

In my Counterfeit Kit I had some muslin which I've been wanting to use.
I found this flower on pinterest.

The thing about muslin is that it doesn't have to be perfect. (suits me!)
I cut a petal flower first as my bottom layer, then decided to just do circles.
My top layer I folded under, but it popped out.
The ribbons behind it were short lengths and match the sweets bag perfectly.

My layout's photo is my daughter and I trying to be funny by hiding our double chins.
My cousin said put your heads up & the two chins won't show. We made her stand on a fence to take the photo. Giggles all round!

The MME sunshine tag, you are silly & say cheese strip add to the mood.

I'm entering this on Show us your stuff.

and a close up of the flower

Journalling will go on the you & me tag.

Julene, this layout made me smile! (My sister & I do the "heads up" thing when we have our pic taken!) Loving your handmade muslin flower too, the contrast of texture looks great against that ribbon! Thanks for playing along with us at SUYS! X
