Show Me Sunday - Flower Beads with Rebecca of Songbead

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you've all had a lovely, chocolate-filled weekend. I'm afraid that, due to internet problems, this Show Me Sunday will reach some of you a little late. I'm staying away from home and my Mum's internet hasn't been so happy.....But here I am, better late than never, to show you our last few flower beads. (Yes, I know I got very excited about our new April theme, but Sunday is technically still March! Save the water beads for next week....) 

Here are a few of my flower art bead finds from this week:






Next Sunday really will be April, so I'm thinking of April Showers....Show Me Water-themed beads. Rain, clouds, the ocean, rivers, teardrops......think outside the box for this one! My favourite colours are within the blue-green spectrum so I am really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this coming month. Leave your links in the comments here! Enjoy today, wherever you are spending the extended weekend.
