Use it or lose it By Sweet Destiny

Ok, I'm thinking I must have cut myself short in the 5 items and should have had multiples in each cause I only ended up with two LO's and I used all my stuff except for a square of pink and a piece of ribbon about 6" long, guess I could try to make another using them up. Anyway here are the two LO's I made.

My Mom

my 4 Grand Children
