Family Key Holder

Family Key Holder
Our assignment was to create something that represented "thankfulness". Well, I am SUPER thankful for my tiny family. I am not so thankful when my husband steals my car keys because he cannot find his own and then hides them somewhere like in his jacket pocket. Inevitably I need to run out the door and my keys are no where to be found. SO this was a reminder to be thankful and not to get angry.. even if I am staring at an empty key holder because mine were abducted. When it comes down to it, it doesn't matter. At. All - There are quite a few people out there wishing they had a husband to steal their keys and are still waiting for "the one". I am so thankful I have him. 

Okay okay, enough of the sappy. Onto the post!  

I have been meaning to use these mini flowers for a while now. They have stared at me forlornly from my craft room wall just begging to be used. Then - suddenly - home decor! I could stare at this sweet flower all day! :) I added some twine to the middle of the "button" and lots of pop dots. Presto. 

I cut the shadows out of doodlebug colored cardstock. love it. The individual patterns came from 6x6 paper pads of both Friendly Forest and Happy Camper. They are totally interchangeable - like one huge happy collection! 

Check out the "L". I HAD to get that fox paper somewhere in my house. Cutest. Little. Foxes. Ever. If you have boys find a way to make this into wall paper for their rooms or something. So cute.

Aww... Look at that little raccoon rascal. Isn't he so cute holding that acorn? My dad used to feed feral raccoons out of his hand. (I know; not smart. But hear me out.) He would wake me up out of bed as a kid and keep me inside behind the sliding glass door while he fed them an apple. I thought my daddy could do ANYthing. He tamed while beasts! haha.
