Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend with family and friends. We had a quickly planned BBQ and watched the fireworks from the Liberty Memorial. It was a lovely time! I created this party invitation for a soldier coming home. It seemed appropriate for Memorial Day. You mail out the invitation along with pre-made corsages. Each attendee wears a corsage to the party to show how proud they are of the hero in their life! Happy Memorial Day!

Cowboy rooms are fun. Do you have any pictures on your blog of yours? Ive had the best time finding things and making things for the cowboy room . Now need to figure out what I will do for my littlest son. I just sold his cowboy crib set so Im thinking a vintage beach, sailor, or just a general vintage room

Corsages are so Romantic I think,No matter the purpose they are serving.
There is something so Gorgeous about them.

This is GORGEOUS, Kara! You always have the most amazing creations.

I totally know what you mean by the bow ;) Sometimes I have to work it to get it how I want. LOL.

Doesn't it just make you flinch when your little Lego Man drops a finished piece?! I'm glad yours got it back together in no time. :) Mine had his 4 y.o. sister step on his the other day. :O Not fun.

Hope you're having a fabulous Tuesday.

Hi Hun

Just read your comment on casa bella chic, would love to see your little mans cowboy room.
I love the whole cowboy thing and poor Jack has no choice but to love it lol! It's so hard to find anything cowboy themed over here apart from the Cath Kidston print.
((hugs))
