One last thing before I share my project...I have to say a  HUGE "THANK YOU" to a few special people:  Denise (Deelightfully Crafty) my hero for sharing her crafting space with me on Sunday when my power went out...if it weren't for you I would not have been able to put the finishing touches on my project and have it completed on time! Also the wonderful women at the CCMIT crop especially Wanda for the great ideas!
