Day One of LPS Previews

Day one of previews for us to share with you over at Little Paper Shop and today we are showing you Bumble Bee Jena. I am just in love with these little girls each month in their bug costumes and this one is no exception, and the sentiments that go along with the sets are super sweet!!

Today I chose some paper scraps that were on my desk to use. I believe they are from one of the October Afternoon packs. I stamped Jena, colored her with copics and a spica pen and paper pieced her dress. Then I completely cut her out and mounted her up on foam dots. I stamped my sentiment in the corner and paper pierced around it. Then I added some sheer black ribbon, a sweet yellow button and some linen thread. I know it is a simple layout today but I tell ya I was real pressed for time.  I worked at our elementary school for the past two days running the Mothers Day plant sale. It was a huge success and we raised alot of money for the 5th Grade Class.  Let me tell you, those little Kindergarteners are just as sweet as can be. They are smart little whipper snappers too!! It blows me away how advanced the younger grades are now as opposed to when my kids were that little. Lindsay is graduating Elementary this year and then I wont have any little ones anymore. Just big hormonal Pre Teens!!! Anyone have any clever advice to help me survive the next few years?
