Leadership Make & Takes

By far the 2011 leadership projects are the best Make & Takes everrrrrrr…. I love how they used lot's of new products from the occasion mini, from Spring time Vintage fabric with the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die, to Beveled Windowpanes, to Trinket Crowns, pearl baubles and we received the clearly for you set and made fun projects that I can show you at your next workshop.  There were 6 Make & takes:  Today I will share you the first project and by the end of the week, you will have all of them, instructions and pictures, just like if you were with me at leadership:)
