OK so this is my very first anything on Craftster.  I'm soo excited!  I saw this challenge and wanted to enter but I didn't have a idea.  Then I was talking to my friend and she was having "one of those days" well, she's always cheering me up and I always wished to use me crafty powers to brighten her day.  My crafty powers are not as advanced as hers but that did not stop me.  I told her that I had a idea and with a *WOOSH* I was off looking for anything that I could use.

Since I have never done a challenge before I felt blind going in.  Oh wait that was my closet without a light.  So I felt around and found my sad collection of supplies.  There were sad because I had left them in the closet since I moved in.  So I dusted them off and went to work...
Since my friend likes flowers that was my muse.

and the backside.

but then I added water and they grew to a happy bunch

Then of course every bouquet needs a vase.  So away to the cubbard *wooshhh* I found a nice vase but, it needed something...so I made some decoupage collage eggs with magazine scraps (then I found out this morning that it is the next challenge, must be the powers) so then I found the flowers to be top heavy so I found a nice egg shaped rock to blend in and to use as a weight.

Then I gave them to my friend

It made her happy!   Grin 

Let me know what you think, Thanks!
