Mothers day blog hop

 welcome to a blog hop for mom. I am sure you wont want to miss all the inspiration that is lined up, so if you are just stopping by, please be sure to start at Lynda's blog...  If you came from Lori's blog, then you are in the right place!!

Now for my project. I wanted to make something special for my mom. I seen these made at flower shops so I decided to make one with paper flowers. For the dog he is made with carnations made from coffee filters.First I filled the basket with styo foam and then took some pieces to shape dog. then covered with carnations. made nose out of a button tongue is paper eyes are google eyes and lashes is border made a leash out of paper and tag I wrote mom on
 This is the side of the basket I made the daiseys from giant flower cart cut them all at 2in add them on a stick and stuck in foam used yellow and white cardstock. leafs are also cut from this cart.
this is the back of the flower arrangement. THe leash says you led me well. I think it turned out pretty cute and kinda looks like her little poodle bella. Now I hope you find time to hop with us.

I will be giving a free mini album to the winner for blog candy All needed is to comment and I will draw from there.  Thank you for visiting and hope you enjoy the rest of the hop...  Your next stop is: Anita's Blog!  hugs
