Spring Basket!

I have one more thing to show you today.
I was asked to do a gift basket for a Mother's Day Tea at the assisted living where my mom and I volunteer. My grandparents lived there and since we've lost them my mom and I still volunteer there from time to time. I had done the black and white wedding basket for the administrator there and once they saw that they asked if I would be willing to do special event baskets for them from time to time. Of course I said YES!!!!
Here is what I came up with....

All the cuts are from Walk in my Garden. I used the Hyacinth, Hydrangea, Daffodil and Daisy for the flowers. I also used all three butterfly's two bees, two lady bugs and a snail. For most of the cuts I used the Glitter stack from DCWV. I also used a lot of colored adhesive gems to glam up the butterfly's and some of the flowers. I think it came out pretty good.

I didn't have time to take close up pics. I like to take close ups to look back on. Oh well! I hope to have my Sugar Sweet Paper Treats challenge done and posted tomorrow! So check back!

Have a great evening!
