I'm linking up with a few blog parties.
Please visit these incredible ladies for more inspiration.

This week I've been working on some decor for our Sunday School classroom.
As you probably remember, Andy and I are teaching the 2nd-5th grade class again this year.
Please don't think we're qualified because we're not.
But like many aspects of life I think God doesn't always use the most qualified, I think He uses the ones that answer His calling.
So, now that we've got that straight let me tell you about our classroom.
It is the most uninspiring classroom evah.
It's painted an old lady version of mint green... GROSS!!!
If the walls weren't 12 feet tall I'd repaint them myself.
But they are, so I won't.
I've chosen instead to decorate around them.
Enter one of my best-est friends Allison and her willingness to meet me at WalMart this morning.
We found this Mary Engelbreit fabric...
LOVE me some Mary Engelbreit!
I'm going to use these three fabrics to make valances for the room...
later this week.
You should have seen the lady in the fabric department when she asked me how much I needed and I replied with "Oh I don't know, how about you show me how big a yard is".
Yeah, makes me laugh to think about the look she gave me too!
Now on to the fun.
I picked up these little metal buckets at Target for $1.00 each.
Very cute, but plain.
After a little black and white ribbon they look worthy of holding some pens and markers.
Last but certainly not least is the project that gave me the title, Cheap Crafty Creation.
I bought these felt flowers 3 for $1.00 at the Dollar Store.
I added a little bling to the center just to spice them up.
Next I recycled an empty Lysol wipe container ( see I really do clean occasionally ;> ) and a scrap of the most adorable wrapping paper.
I used Modge Podge to attach the paper.
I tried to smooth out the bubbles without much luck.
Oh well, I moved on anyway.
I used a spray sealer with gloss over the paper.
Then I added a little ribbon bow.
what do you think??
You can be honest.
If you think it's totally tacky it's ok.
I'm prepared to act like the Sunday School kids made it! ;>
God's blessings on your afternoon, Sarah
