* Color Me Daisy turning 1!! *

Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to Color Me Daisy!! There's no better way to celebrate turning 1 than to have a blog hop! We are all so glad you all joined in on the fun and not to mention win some fabulous Basic Grey goodies!!

So here's my challenge. I am always looking for new ideas to celebrate the beautiful woman my grandmother is. The Jenni Bowlin papers in this month's kit were perfect to showcase my grandmother turning 93 this year.




She has always been a crafty person which is where I got my crafty gene from. So to give this layout a bit of her personality, I have added some great sewing notions which also is from the August kit. The "93" is just simply cut and stitched, no biggie.



This flower is another no biggie! I just made my yo-yo flower, glued the lace to the back, and then glued some thread and a button on to the front. Easy peasy!!




Now on to your assignment. My challenge to you is to create a layout that celebrates someone special in your life. You also have to use some fabric in your layout. It can be one of my examples, some strips that are gathered, another type of flower, or used as a piece of layering. There are endless ways to use fabric on your layouts! I am giddy over what kind of wonderful layouts I will be seeing from you ladies! Be sure to upload a picture of your layout into the Color Me Daisy gallery and thread to get credit and a chance to win some of the fabulous Basic Grey that Michelle has waiting to be won!!! Also, be sure to leave some comments here!

Wishing Color Me Daisy a very happy birthday and a Happy Scrappy weekend to you all!!!!
