Yipeeee I won / California here I come!

I'm so excited!  Last month I signed up for a Challenge hosted by  judymurrah .  Judy sent each contestant 4 pieces of her beautiful vintage lace and challenged us to create something with it.  The prize, a pretty chest full of more vintage laces!    Now ya'll know I love lace so I had to try!

Well, this morning Judy notified me that I had won!  Lucky me! Thank you Judy for making me step outside my comfort zone.  Working with tone on tone vintage colors was a first for me and I have to admit - I loved it! 

It didn't take me long to figure out what I wanted to do with the laces.  I cut a piece of double sided peltex 8x11 and went to town.  Not quite sure what I am going to name this one but I'm thinking of putting up for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Well, In a matter of 5 hours Rob will be trying to wake me up (4:30) to get to to the airport.  Heading out to California to see my precious grandbabies.  Evita and DeAngelo will be 3 years old on May 8th - where did the time go?  This Nana can't wait to wrap them up in hugs!
Evita & DeAngelo...almost 3!
