CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!
It's time for the Close To My Heart Spotlight Blog Hop!
I hope you are joining me from Tracy Oleksak's blog.  This month we had a special treat as we got to choose a color palette from Jeanette's Color Me Monday Blog posts.  I want to be very honest with you about this challenge.  I DID NOT sit in front of my computer and go through all her posts and decide on the perfect color palette that I wanted to showcase. 

What happened was this... I was finishing up my kids Valentine treats and realized that I did not buy enough of the same treats to include all of  Hunter's class mates.  So I rushed to Micheal's and of course they are all sold out of cute and easy to assemble treats.  So as I'm standing in line waiting to pay for an adhesive, I saw these cupcake liners and a box of lollipops.  I sneaked to the ribbon section really fast and grabbed the 50% off spools ($0.25!!), what I thought was yellow ribbon, turned out to be like a Buttercup color.

Fortunately, I had my tool bag in my trunk and I assembled 15 treats in the car, while I waited for Hunter to get out of preschool.  I took pictures of the steps for you all to see how easy it is to make these little flowers, you will see the tutorial on the post before this!  After I took the pictures, I remembered that I had to make a project for this blog hop and the a little light bulb BLINGED on top of my head. I jumped on Jeanette's blog and searched for the perfect color combo to go with my flowers and VOILA!!!
The steps and pictures on how to make these super cute flowers are on the post just before this one, so take a peek...Now go on to your next destination to LAURIE FLANNERY'S  to see more fabulous artwork!  Don't worry if you did not start at the beginning of the Hop, it's a full circle anyway you follow so enjoy!!!
