My Pink Collage

I wasn't going to post this, because I am just a tad bit picky about some things. I guess you could say I am a perfectionist when it comes to crafts, pictures and other odd things. That is why I don't do many crafts. For example, I have been working on this collage for about 2 hours to get it just right! So since I spent so much time on it I am just going to put it up. (Some of the tops of the pictures got cut off, like the angel! I just got tired of messing with it.) **I got the idea from Kristy at The Hall Family**Add Image
The following is just in case any of you would like a description of the pics. I don't blame you if you stop reading right now! Ha....Ha

1. My bargain chain pull I got at Lowe's for $1.50. That thing was regular about $5!
2. Gladiolas from last years garden.
3. A pretty glitter heart candle from one of my students.
4. More gladiolas. Can you tell that they are one of my favorite flowers?
5. Two favorite B&B Works scents....Sweet Pea and Cherry Blossom.
6. Azalea flower from last spring.
7. Yummy Twizzlers.
8. Home Interior Angels Jake got me for our first V-day together.
9. Peppermint Lotion
10. The pink flowers in my bedroom.
11. My favorite issue of All You.
12. The "pink" section of my closet.
13. The sweet card Jake made me! BTW... that is the "Key to His Heart" (Just in case you were wondering what in the world that was sticking out! LOL)
14. I just love this little tin with safety pins.
15. You guessed it....more gladiolas. These were from 07, but I just loved all these pictures.
16. Kenzie's Valentine
17. The pink in my favorite scarf....wait it's my ONLY scarf.
18. Cute pic of an azalea bloom.
19. Precious Moments bell. It says Love Goes on Forever.
20. My beautiful angel that got her head chopped off!
21. Close up of another gladiola.
22. Heart tin
23. The wine glasses I decorated for Lisa and I a New Year's. You can't tell but I painted our initials on them.
24. A picture frame that is the shape of a purse with pink feathers. I got this from a secret pal one year...I love it Kristy.
25. Last but definitely not least. This is my ALL TIME favorite gladiola. It was so gorgeous, bright pink in the center and white around.

I love it! I think it looks great :)

I don't know how to do it. I want to, but I don't have much pink around my house....I might try to see what I can find. LOL

How's the diet going? I got sick last night, so mine's right on track! :( But, I'm down to my lowest weight so far......just plugging away....13 more pounds to get to my goal!! :)

I like the dieting blogging buddies idea!!

I loved your post today and couldn't help but laugh when you talked about how long you worked on the collage and then just finally had to post it--I'm a bit of a perfectionist sometimes too, so I feel your pain =)
I LOVED the flowers from your past gardens--just beautiful!
Thank you for your comment on my blog--I couldn't agree with you more, and I will be praying that God blesses you with a child very soon--You are the kind of woman that deserves to be a mother.
Have a great day!

Thanks for leaving a comment. We have been TTC for almost two years. We started infertility testing last summer. We found out it is male infertility and now are trying IUI's. My doctor said he would do 3 before we try "other" things. Not yet sure what he would like to try. I notice you teach--me too.
