This Week's Challenge; BLOOM

When I pondered this week of what to do, I thought


It is so springy out with blooms all around,

The air is fresh with fragrance about,

And the peddles are already falling aground.

So much can be done with the theme Bloom

~Go catch them with clay, beads, paint and film~

Here are some definitions of  Bloom to help your creative juices
 bloom1 definition
• bloom
• noun
• a flower; blossom
• flowers collectively, as of a plant
• the state or time of flowering
• a state or time of best health or greatest beauty, vigor, or freshness; prime
• A youthful, healthy glow (of cheeks, skin, etc.)
• the grayish, powdery coating on various fruits, as the plum, grape, etc., and on some leaves
• any similar coating, as on new coins
• a mass of planktonic algae in lakes, ponds, or the sea, as in the development of red tides

You have until 12:00 NOON Eastern time
They will be posted later Sunday afternoon

Great theme Shel! I like that you listed some different definitions of 'bloom', some of which don't even have to do with flowers! Gets the brain ticking.... :)

Lovely Challenge here's mine Thank you for looking!!

Mommy Tyme said... is miy entry! I love this theme, and it was hard for me to choose which item to use... But, this has detachable flowers made of ribbon that are easily re-attached with button accents sewn to the center, the edging is ruffled with picot for even more floral and femininity! I am loving this weeks challenge.... Cant wait to see everyone's entries...

Mommy Tyme Bath and Gifts!
