My grandkids are in a dance recital this weekend and we can’t wait to see them. Dave and I are traveling a distance to go to the recital so I wasn’t sure how real flowers would hold up.
Besides Maddie loves chocolate, so I created a bouquet of flowers and put Hershey Kisses in the centers of the flowers with Mini Glue Dots. This bouquet should last longer than real flowers too; except for the chocolates – those will be gone in a flash!
Stamp Set – Crazy About You, Beautiful You
Ink – Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder

This second bouquet is for my grandson who loves his hip-hop dance classes and fishing. I couldn’t see giving Jack flowers, neither real ones nor those made of paper; so I made a bouquet of fish for him, complete with Rolo candies.

I’m excited to see the kids’ response to these bouquets; hopefully they appreciate my labor of love!
