Happy Mother...Goose Day!

In all the celebrations surrounding Mother's Day this year, it was interesting to note that it was ALSO Mother Goose day this past weekend... (random information, I know...). SO, in honor of Mother Goose day, I'd love to see your NURSERY RHYME inspired creations.
And as always, we have some AMAZING Dollie submissions for ya (along with a rhyme!)
Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

(who LITERALLY drew inspiration from a rhyme... and then drew this AMAZING character!)
Curly Locks, Curly Locks,
Will you be mine?
You shall not wash dishes,
Nor feed the swine,
But sit on a cushion
And sew a fine seam,
And sup upon strawberries,
Sugar, and cream.


Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee
Resolved to have a battle,
For Tweedle-dum said Tweedle-dee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew by a monstrous crow,
As big as a tar barrel,
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel.

So now it's YOUR turn to find some inspiration in Nursery Rhyme classics! Remember to upload your projects via Mr. Linky by no later than midnight on Monday, May 17th in order to qualify for this month's Elements prize pack!
