Friday Triad: inspired by PolishPixie92

Hi everyone!

It's the last Friday of the month again, so Michelle, Juanita and me get to cross off another manicure from our to-do lists with our monthly Triad manicure.

Not entirely... but I'll get to that part later ;)

First let me show you the end result:

Fortunately daisies grew just about anywhere (as they are considered weeds) so there were plenty for me to pick and when I made a long enough braid, my mom connected the ends and I could wear my flower crown, making me a flower princess :)
