The last month and a half has been a little crazy for me.
I came down with Covid 19 in April and then a bad case of pneumonia

For The Girls - Summer Trainers

 


Good morning!
Well I am running a little behind this week.
Being with my grand kids has
my days becoming a bit of a blur.
It is something, that I would never change
but sometimes my
days/weeks run away from me.
It is so awesome having so much love for others.

Creative Knockouts is bringing
their #447 challenge to you.
It is For The Girls

Our wonderful sponsor this week is from
All Dressed Up and the prize is 2 images.
Thank you so much for letting me color up

 
I loved this image as it reminds me of
my daughter and the rest of the girls
in our lives who love their Van's
and well shoes in general.
They love their flowers.
The sentiment is because they are positive people.

It is hard to see but I did use wink of stella on
the shoes for a bit of sparkle to go with the blue skies.

Please join us for this fun filled challenge
we would love to see what this For The Girls
challenge inspires you to create.

Thank you for joining me this week.
Have a blissful day!
