* Blog Hop Featured Color Combo:

And here is my design for the hop (all supplies Stampin' Up!) -- I made the paper flowers with left over orange napkins from my son's graduation party last Saturday (he will attend Campbell University)!!  How is that for saving the planet and recycling??!!??

My favorite flower in the whole wide world is the hydrangia!  I have 20 hydrangia bushes planted around my yard in lovely shades of blue, purple, lavendar and pink!  Now if I only could get the deer not to eat them .. then life would be perfect {giggle}!  Half of my back yard backs up to a golf course and the other half backs up to the woods, so they come on in each night for a snack and graze through my yard.  If it wasn't so frustrating, it'd be pretty hysterical.  At any given time each evening I could have 1 - 10 deer chomping away in my yard :)  I'm so glad they enjoy all those expensive shrubs I've planted in my yard!!

What a clever use of the napkins! And my favorite flowers in the world--hydrangia! If you haven't done so yet, you need to gather them up and put them in a vase. I just happened to see a vase of them at my local bakery on their counter in an assortment of colors. Oh how I wish I had some!

Audrey Pettit said...
