Crazy 4 Challenges - Recipe

Good Saturday Morning Everyone!!

Sorry I haven't been to around much this week.  
I, to be honest, am pretty exhausted and am have been focusing on family a bit lately!!
As some of you may know I homeschool my 2 oldest of my 5 Little Bugs, so we 
are trying to wrap up the school year.
Just entering a season where I feel my babies need me and since they are 
top priority, they have been getting my attention!!

While, trying to juggle it ALL, I have realized I can't therefore I have decided to step down from  
Bee Crafty.
This was a very hard decision, since I just love Merrigan and the Girls, not to mention her designs are ADORABLE!! Thank You Merrigan for allowing me to design for was a true pleasure!!
Best Wishes to all you are the best!!
I will still be a huge supporter and follower of Bee Crafty and I would recommend Merrigan's Images to anyone!!  In fact, they have a lovely Wedding/Anniversary Challenge going on today and the girls have created lots of pretty stuff!!
I just need a little break as I am on the verge of getting burnt out...I think we all have been here and you all know what I mean!!

 Now on to my Saturday contribution to the blogger/crafting world...

This week our super fabulous hostess Lynda, has challenged us to create according to a recipe.
It's supposed to be as easy as 1, 2, 3.  You know the kind of challenge only a silly goose could screw up on....well, just call me a SILLY GOOSE!! Why you ask?  Well, I can't even follow a simple recipe...I accidentally got carried away and instead of the 1 Ribbon, 2 Buttons/Brads and 3 Punches....I used 3 Buttons/Brads!!  Yikes, Sorry Lynda!!

I would have changed it, however I didn't notice it until I was uploading it!!
Hope you all like it anyway!!

This week's challenge is sponsored by...
WOOT WOOT!!!Don't you just LOVE this super fun and Freaky Flutter Image

 Be SURE to take a look at the other Crazy Girls....they have made some wonderful 
cards...Oh and they followed the recipe correctly...Hee hee!!!

Great card Lori! I'm sure Bee Crafty will miss you. No doubt they will understand. Your children are very blessed to have a Mom who puts them first.

I know what you mean about feeling pulled in every direction and I do far less than you do! God will bless you for making these decisions and both you and your babies will be happier.
