A long time coming

I've been working on this craft for .... awhile.  I know I purchased it at least 5 years ago and started it, probably about a 1 year ago.  And after getting the initial parts done, I was trying to keep it hidden from my daughter, so when I gave it to her for a celebration (birthday or Christmas, depending on when it was completed), it would be at least a little bit of a surprise.  But it is hard for me to wait until all the kids are in bed or away because I'm either exhausted or it rarely happens. 

Well, last week, presented an opportunity to finish this without my daughter being around - she was visiting grandparents.  So I made sure to make time to do it throughout the week and.... finally finished it last night, in time for her birthday which is about a month away!
(And hopefully, she's still young enough to enjoy hanging it on her wall!)

Projects finished: 10
