YEAH ME!!

Okay, so I listened to my inner voice and finished the Secret Garden! :)

(Though that Happy Owloween is really calling my name! By chance, I even had all the WDW for it already.. when does that happen?!)

I changed a few little things. I changed the wording on the front. My 91 year old Grandma has been telling me for the past ten years or so, to make sure through all the busy-ness that I "Take time to smell the roses!"

I was very anxious and took pictures in my son's room where the computer is, so it's all funky backgrounds! Just ignore that!

I used the leftover silk threads to make the cording, turned out okay! Decided to put my cool French scissors in the case..need to find something else for the other pocket.

Can you see the little heart and key charm on the ends of the cords that tie the whole thing together?!

LOVE IT! And I still have an hour until I have to pick up my oldest from school....

Happy Owloween! :)
