Sorority "Rush"

and that is a perfect word for it! I was rushing to get my creation done to post today! We were challenged by Karen to take a copy of our sorority picture and make something with it! I thought, hey, I will make a pillow! I had to flip the picture and then make the paper to iron it onto fabric....and then foof it up! I love how it turned out. Hope you do too!



this pin was mine from high school. Remember when we wore them on our cute little wool skirts??
Karen...see the flower??



For my sorority sisters who don't know me, I am Ceekay. I am from HOT Arizona. I have been blogging almost 3 years. I am so anxious to meet all of you and see all your creations.

OK, Karen....here as you asked....me with my creation!!

Oh Ceekay, you are absolutely gorgeous in your pic, and your pillow is exquisite. I can't believe you made that. The wonderful lace and the flowers and the tag, wow, it is truly gorgeous. So much prettier than what you described. I love it. Isn't being sorority sisters fun!!! Hugs, Marty
