Tulips…for Me?!!

Happy Mother’s Day!!

I hope you are having a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  Our kids are at such fun ages…3 are 6, one is 8. They are so excited to “celebrate” me tomorrow (I think this came from school…thanks teachers!).  They have their handmade gifts hidden away for tomorrow.  I love it!

It’s time for another My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette MTMEPP08:

I love these colors!  Did you see the new MTME release this month?  You can see it HERE.  I fell in love with the Tender Tulip.  The combo of tulips and these colors only meant one thing…Happy Mother’s Day to ME!  A bouquet of tulips (my hubby doesn’t like to give me flowers because they are expensive and die too quickly; he prefers giving more practical, useful gifts!)!

Aren’t they awesome?!  I tell you, Lauren is a crafting genius!  I LOVE her templates and cut files!  The vase is made out of her To Go template and Darling Dots digi paper.  For the stems, I cut strips of celery cs 1 inch wide, 11 inches long, then scored them at 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 inches.  From this, I folded them in a triangle shape and glued them.  Stems are hot glued to each tulip.  Once the tulips were assembled, I cut their stems to various lengths for the bouquet.

Stop by and see what the rest of the MTME Pretty Palette girls have made:

I hope you play along with us this week!

Have a fantastic day.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I can’t believe I didn’t comment on this! I was overwhelmed when I first saw it and I’m still in awe! Just gorgeous!
    PS…my hubby doesn’t like to give me flowers either. He bought me some roses this Valentine’s Day for the first time in 19 years!

  2. Wow! I love tulips and I love your bouquet!! Awesome creation!!! Hope you’re enjoying your mother’s day, Lori, and being celebrated by your family.
