Our Thoughts are With You

Good Morning everyone! Well the first day back to a routine, I think was a little rough for everyone but very much needed.  Guess, I am a person of habit....LOL.  We are slowly getting back into the groove of things.  This week my oldest son Tristan turned 17, our middle son Robin finally got to go back to Tae-Kwon-Do and our daughter Kaitlyn started physiotherapy with Robin and I. My hubby is back into the groove of work too.

Onto our new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks! Our hostess is Leanne and for Challenge #176.  She would like you to use Bows. Easy peazy challenge right? We have one more week if you would like to apply to be one our new DT.

My creation below was made for Robin and Kaitlyn's kindergarten teacher. Her fellow kindergarten teacher for many, many years, passed away on boxing day.  I was very lucky to have had the privilege to work with her.  She left a foot print on many hearts over the years those she taught and met.

I finally learned how to make a decent looking bow...Yahoo! My bow teacher was a really great lady off of You Tube...wrote the link down and now missed placed it...uh.  When I find it I will put the link on here for you.
