Anything Goes at Papertake Weekly - Optional 'Make Your Own Flowers'

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends. Hope you are well and those not I wish well soon.
Did you have your pancakes this morning? 
We certainly did here in the Simpson house - they are Jack's favourite and he even managed to drag himself out of bed a whole 30 mins earlier than usual just so he didn't miss out :o)

So not only is it Shrove Tuesday - it's also the first Tuesday of the month so that means it's time for 


over at 

with the OPTIONAL theme of 


Here's what I did using some more of my new scrummy stash from LOTV - who also happen to be our sponsor this week :o)
