  14. OMW how cute is this apron?? I have been eyeing and spying cute aprons all over the place and have been SO wanting one of my own. I own a sewing machine but it doesn't like me...so I use it primarily for decoration in my craft room! lol! Anyways, I totally hope I win this but if I DON'T I think I'm gonna try to MAKE It! WOOHOO! This could get interesting! :)

  21. If the apron was for my little "C" (my 4 year old) it would be all different shades of Pink -- she is all about pink and ruffles. My oldest daughter, "E" is all about lime green and turquoise! : )

    This is adorable -- I am partial to the pink and green (of course)
