Great love...

TGIF!

Recently I read the sad news that the A Day For Daisies challenge blog is closing down and the final challenge actually ends today. The good news is that the store remains open and there is still the ADFD Facebook group to share and find inspiration on but this definitely feels like the end of an era in many ways. So I couldn't let this milestone pass without playing along one last time. The challenge is 'a celebration of favorites' and it was really hard to choose a single image as my most favorite because there are so many that I love. Perhaps the obvious choice would have been a fairy or mermaid but as I got to thinking about it I finally chose this sweet image called, 'Breeze in Spring'. For me she represents all of the darling kiddo images in the shop with their quiet innocence and simple whimsy that drew me to ADFD in the first place. It always amazes me how a few simple lines can come together with a bit of color and capture so much emotion. Ya gotta love that. :)

Alrighty, I hope your weekend is a crafty one!
