Sweet Little Photo Flower

Hey Ladies-

I found some cute mini wooden flower pots at the craft store and thought it would be fun to do something with them.  So, I looked around and used some scraps and tools I had laying around and created a cute little flower featuring one of my sweeties!  I decided to keep it on my desk, but it would be a great little gift for her best friend or a grandparent!
