Romantic Tag and Fun Volunteering this past Weekend

Hello Friends!!
 today I am excited to be doing a little Guest Designing work for Bonnie
I hope everyone is enjoying springy weather!!  I know I am!!!
Today I would like to share with you a little tag/ornie that I created using 
some fabby goodies from RRR!
I just love the soft romantic feel to it!  I used the Lady image from Gecko Galz, the Banner, and flowers images from Optic Illusions to create this darling little piece.
I used my Perfect Mini Layer Rulers to create the pink layers of matting for my image and banner piece.  I used the fabby Tombow Foam Tabs to elevate my focal image and then wrapped a piece of the pink diagonal ribbon and secured it with a bow.  I added a sweet little deep ivory mulberry rose to finish off that side.  Opposite that I used some of the flower images and a sweet baby pink mulberry rose.
Around the edges of my banner I used the 1/4 natural crochet lace (one of my must haves), and then tied off around the top of the banner with another must have champagne organza!  I created a simple bow at the top of my hanger with cream seam binding.
Here is one last look at the finished piece with all my fabby goodies from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon!

Don't forget that we have our
Gecko Galz is teaming up this month with Optic Illusions and we have a "Ladies of Long Ago" Challenge going on here.

Jessica has many fabby Challenges going on in our Gecko Galz Paper Crafting Facebook Group which you can check out here.
It is a closed group, but we will be more than happy to allow you access!!

This weekend our boy's Scout troop assisted with Art in the Park.  I was able to stop by on Friday and Saturday and get a couple photos.  I am so proud of all of the boys, they did an awesome job helping the artists carry things to their booths, helping them with set up etc.  Then through out the weekend they were in charge of keeping the park clean, handing out water to the vendors and assisting kiddos cross the rope bridge.
Above is the rope bridge that the boys put up and help the little ones cross.  Those of you who follow me know that I'm a RN and  normally work the weekends....and this weekend we visited AITP are some photos of my friend filling a container with Sandy Candy...over 100 flavors!!

He also had a large elephant ear and braved the rope bridge!!
It looks much easier than it really is :0)
 Finally on Sunday Evening the Scouts assisted with helping take down booths, and helping the artists get things to their cars/trucks etc.
I had the best time on Sunday, I spent the whole day working the parking lot.  I was able to meet many of our newest crossover Scouts' parents.  SUPER FUN!!  I will have to say I feel bad for peeps that don't volunteer....because you meet some of the nicest people...and the events are always fun!
The best part of that two of the Old Goats, Mark & Kenny helped me learn how to hook up a trailer to my truck, let me pull the trailer to our area for clean up and then to the church where we keep it.  It was the COOLEST thing EVER!  I even got to back the trailer into it's spot at the church, which was between another trailer and a shed.  It took me a while, but Mark was sooooo patient!!
Here is my new truck with the trailer :0)
I will admit I was all super soon as I got home I had to tell the Hubby all about it!!  Then I called my  My hubby assisted on Friday night, and then Saturday he took the boys and dropped them off while he came back home and cut our 1 and 1/2 acres of hilly (not doing so great)  He uses a push mower, so he gets exercise.  When I came home Sunday he had put all new Smoke/Fire detectors through out the house and had cleaned all my flower beds (out front) of poison ivy and prickers.  I am thinking this is the best weekend ever!

Enjoy your summer and  I hope you have some time to play with your ribbons and trims!!
Thank you for visiting!!
