Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I am sharing my last project as a Guest Designer for PaperWorks Co.  This month really flew by!  For my final project I thought it was fitting to use the same set that I started out my Guest Design posts with, and that is the  Freckle Love Collection.  This time I chose to use the Standing Beneath a Tree image.   
This tree was just screaming paper piecing to me, but instead of that, I fabric pieced.  I stamped the top of the tree on some green felt, cut it out, sewed on a few bright pink buttons and done.   I love the dimension it gives to the project without being overly bulky. I tried placing ribbon here and there, but in the end decided to just stick with the buttons as my only embellishments (well aside from a little stickles).   I really love how this one turned out, and may end up framing it for my daughter's to put in their room around Valentine's Day, well.   

I want to say thanks again to Peggy for allowing me to be a Guest Designer for the month and hope that I will be able to work with her again someday!  

Quick break in post to say Congrats to The Green Bay Packers for making it to the Super Bowl!
Here is a picture of my kids ready to watch the Packers/Bears Playoff game (but not thrilled with mom having to take their picture):
We go up to Green Bay at least once a year and make it a point to stop at Lambeau Field.  Of course, while we're there, we have to hit the Pro Shop and get the kids outfitted for the year.  Here is a picture of all of us outside the gates at Lambeau this past summer:
