Knowing when to stop is a good thing ~

I finished the banner up ~ all except for feeding the ribbon through the top of it!! I added a few ribbons and buttons but I think it looks finished now! Thank you for all the kind compliments about it, I've loved making it for the shower, Emily and baby Clara!

Friday I found this treasure at the book store....yaaaay!! I just love peeking into artist's studios. I hope to study it this weekend ~

A few treats to use in your Valentine's cards ~

Wishing you a wonderful weekend dear friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

It is beautiful! You did a great job. I had to laugh about walking past the studio when in a slump. I get like that. All the time.
Ya know I got that mag about a week ago and haven't even touched it. I tooo love peek at others studios and it inspires me alot. What got me to clean mine. LOL
Have a wonderful weekend.

The banner turned out so pretty - everyone at the shower will love it! I'm going to have to look for that magazine - the cover alone is great! Thank you for sharing the images. The Birthday Greetings one is my favorite! I guess I better quit talking now, since my verification word is "babble!" ~Lori

You do the finest work, Dawn. I'd make such a mess, but you're neat and so very professional. It came out perfectly!

The banner is so sweet and pretty! This is going to be the most adorably cute baby shower EVER! I've yet to see that book...I did receive a tote bag from Sandra Evertson, who I understand is in there...or part of it somehow. Anyhow, I won a giveaway from her and that was included.
