Annie knows her teacher's favorite drink is Dr. Pepper, and she remembered that Hy-Vee had Valentine candy bouquets with soda bases. Okaaayy. I thought that sounded really weird, but I trusted her. Last night (after her new middle school open house, no less), we ran over to Hy-Vee to see these candy bouquet things. You know what?
They were pretty darn cute!
But . . .
No Dr. Pepper or Diet Coke (for Henry's teacher). I stared at these bouquets, my head tilted to the right, and my Eric says, "What? You're thinking of making it yourself, aren't you?"
I love him.
I ended up with lemonade and not soda. Here's why: The only kind of single-serve soda a person can buy is in a plastic bottle. Plastic and hot glue do not jive.
When I saw this feisty little lemon face, I was sold.
This is how it came together:
|I stamped the lemon from "Apple of My Eye" |
in So Saffron and then "Rock and Rolled"
in Pink Pirouette to give it that pink tinge.
The sentiment is stamped in Wild Wasabi.

month's Paper Pumpkin.
