My Too Much Dress:)

 I saw this amazing tutorial over at Hope Studios and literally got up and ran to find the supplies around mi casa!  I have made almost every kind of flower there ever was, and this is definately my favorite!
These were just what I needed to revamp an old dress, and if you look closely I couldn't stop there, I had to add them to my shoes as well!

Thanks for taking these pictures Momma! ( AKA~ The Queen Enchantress:)


 My hair was jealous, so I had to make one for it too!:)

Once when a friend and I were making a craft, she stopped to ask me "Do you think this is too much?"  I replied,  "You are asking the queen of too much, if it is too much?!  You only live once, so why not add a little too much to your life, even if it is only by sassying up your wardrobe with kick awesome flowers!! 

So, if you are a friend of mine, try to act suprised when you get some bee-you-tee-ful flowers for Christmas! The funny thing is, is that allot of my closest friends rairly read this blog, or don't even know we have one, so I think I am pretty safe!

I am linking my revamped dress up to Kimbas DIY Party!

You look gorgeous! I love how you believe in prettying up anything and everything. You are an inspiration to me! Life SHOULD be that way. Why are we often too afraid to risk it? Thanks Sari!
