My project is a bit of a tongue in cheek long time family thing. To make a short story shorter, one day when my son was napping I made a stuffed skunk and when he woke up, he grabbed it and named him, "Mr. Skunk"  and they were BFF's until David grew up. All I could think of while I was cutting the black and white skunk was the song, "Puttin' on the Ritz" so............I decided to go with pictures of my son and I putting each other's flowers on for his US wedding. I found a ceramic skunk ring bearer, if you look close you can see it behind the glass.
