Homecoming corsage and Boutonniere..

Hey ya'll and WELCOME back!! 
Caution... pic heavy
I am sooo excited to finally show you a corsage and boutonniere I made for a sweet friend, Jenny. Let's back this up a bit... A dear friend asked me to make her ONLY daughter's corsage for her first Homecoming. I was totally ELATED that she trusted me with this special project!! I know from having a daughter of my own, how special these occasions are and how PERFECT we want them to be. So, I was over joyed to have this task. Don't be fooled.. I was also VERY nervous!!!  Talk about PRESSURE big time!!! I definitely had to make these and send them in case they weren't what my friend had in mind. I did just that!! So.. she sent me a photo of the dress.. I got what I needed and went to town... Let me say this.. the boutonniere was harder than the corsage!! I try to keep the same elements, but not make it look overly girlie.. 

Here is what I came up with...

Well, tonight was the BIG night and Emalie and Austin LOVED their corsage and boutonniere. Here they are looking AMAZINGLY gorgeous and handsome!! 

Thank you so much Jenny for trusting me to make this for your daughter. It means soooo much to know that YOU have that much faith in me. It really means alot!! I am so excited you liked it Emalie.. :)  You surely made it look good :)  

Thank you all for stopping by. Hope to see ya soon..
Till next time..
Happy Crafting!!
