Bloggerette Sorority in Ruffles and Bling!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Today is the big day to RUSH!!  It's time for initiation into the Sister in the Bloggerette Sorority hosted by
Karen at Some Days Are Diamonds...  To join the sorority we have to create something with our new image, created by Karen at My Desert cute.

 So, me being me, created a little something using burlap, a little vintage lace, some rosettes and a little bling!

Here's a peek at the rosettes and the bling....
I kept going crazy with the rosettes, ruffles and the burlap
and this is what happened.
Pretty cute, yes?

And we are to take a picture of ourselves with the item we created!  Like this....

Did I pass Karen, am I in?

So now, I am an official Sister in the Bloggerette Sorority!
For a complete list of all our Sisters, hop on over
to Some Days are Diamonds and see the cutest
Bloggerette Sorority Sisters ever!!
