Happy Mother's Day!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone! I am back and hoping to make my rounds and visit your blogs to see what you've all been up to :) I will have a little free time over the weekend so if I haven't made it by, I will real soon! 
We had a wonderful time visiting my son who lives in New York. It was our first time in NY so we were pretty overwhelmed but we had a blast!! He lives in Manhattan so it made it easy for us to just catch up with him each morning. We'd either meet at his place or the Waldorf Astoria Hotel which was where we were staying. Wowzers....what a as gorgeous hotel! 

While we were there, we managed to squeeze in game 3 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs between the Islanders and Penguins.  What an awesome game! We are hoping to go back real soon and take in some more places. We kind of ran out of time and didn't get to go to all the places on our list. We would definitely go was a great place to visit! 

I am missing my craft room like terrible and hoping this weekend I will have a little more time to craft! I  made a quick project this morning to join the Peachy Keen Challenge 13-18 3D Object :: Flowers challenge that is going on along with a few others listed below. Hope you like it! 
Here is my project: 
I made this for baby Arya to give her Mommy (my daughter) for Mother's Day. I started off with a muslin bag that I purchased from 3Girl JAM and stamped this adorable bear on it with PKSC-13 Jan set stamp set and colored it with copics. I added rosy cheeks, freckles and a fun shabby chic paper rose to dress this cutie up some. The sentiments are from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 2 stamp set. I topped it off with adding a fun gingham bow a prima flower and shabby chic flower  and then filled the bag with yummy dove milk chocolates. 
I made a matching little 3x3 card. The flower is My Creative Time's stitched daisy die and the sentiment is My Craft Spot's Happy Easter stamp set. I love the font on this set! 
I hope you like my project:) 
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) 3Girl Jam Challenge-Anything Goes plus ribbon 
2.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #159-Mother 's Day
3.) Pumpkin Spice Challenge NSD-Mother's Theme
4.) Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #111 Mother's Day
5.) Everyday is an Occasion Sunday {Fun{day #9 Linky Party
