Get Well Box Card - Embellish by Dena - Darice

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!!!  Are you having a happy Monday?  Me?  So far, So good...of course that is probably because Ainsley is still sleeping tho.  lol

Today I want to share with you a Get Well card I made for a friend of mine's daughter.  It is a Box Card.  It folds flat for mailing, but pops open into a box when you take it out of the, huh.

I just can't stop playing with these Little Azalea Papers from Embellish by Dena and Darice.  I have been so fortunate to have been working with them.
I sure hope she liked it.

Thanks for stopping by,

Look at Me - Echo Park

Woo Hoo!!!!  It's Friday!  And I have nothing planned for the weekend!  No swim meets, no...anything...ok, now I am a little sad.  Maybe I should have some friends over or something?

Anyway, today I want to share with you another layout featuring Ainsley.  I guess this is Ainsley week here on the blog.  lol  Well, you probably know we have a climbing wall in our backyard....doesn't everyone?  Ainsley really enjoys it, probably uses it more than anyone.

She is such a little monkey.  A bit of older Echo Park papers here.  

Thanks for stopping by...Have a great weekend.

Photo Banner - Clear Scraps

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a great day!  Today I wanted to share with you a project I have up over on the Clear Scraps blog....a fun photo banner.

I love these photos of the children (teens?) I took on the Fourth of July...I swear, the three of them look like they could be in an ad for a clothing store....I just love them so.

You know what else I I made this one to highlight the photos using the Clear Scrap Acrylic Five Piece Banner.  Of course, I only used three of the pieces here.  I embellished the banner with flowers from Darice, more of the gorgeous doilies I made using my Prima die, some older Pink Paislee chipboard flowers, Prima flower centers and trim...oh and the photos are using the Embellish by Dena Haute Girls collection papers.  The baker's twine and gingham ribbon just came from my old, not really sure who made them.  So much fun in such a little package.  lol

She's Thirteen - Scrapbooking

Hi everyone!  Happy humpday!  Things around here, now that we are back to school, are slowly returning to normal.  Goodness...whose bright idea was that swim team thing totally consumes our summer.  lol

Anyway, since I had so much fun showing you those photos of Ainsley at 13 in the layout on Monday, I thought I would share more photos of Ainsley from the same day....and how the heck did she get to be 13 anyway?  Seems like just the other day she was 3.

Yep, that is what 13 looks like around here.  lol Oh, and of course the fake glasses.  sigh   Love, love, love the older Crate Paper papers here.  Wonder if I could still find them.  Again, thinking this is from a sketch, tho I can't remember whose?  I really need to work on that.  

Thanks for stopping by,

This is 13 - Scrapbooking

Good Morning everyone!  Happy Monday.  For us it is the first day of school...don't know how much actual school we will be getting done, so many organizational, setting up Ainsley's folders, exploring the new materials, but...... Today I wanted to share with you a scrapbook layout I made with photos of Ainsley....yep, this is Ainsley, who is now 13!  How is that even possible?  sigh

And when did 13 start looking like this?  lol  These photos were taken on our way to dinner on her 13th birthday.  Lots of older Webster's pages and Prima here...just a bit of texture paste as well...trying to keep things simple.

Well, I guess I have three teenagers now.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cupcake Gift Card Holder - Darice

Hi everyone!  Woo Hoo for Friday!  I hope you have great plans for the weekend....I know I do.  hee hee  Yep, that is a tease because I am not telling.  You will find out soon enough I am sure.

Today I wanted to share with you a cupcake giftcard holder I made for Darice using Coredinations papers and lots of other goodies.  You can see the full post and tutorial here.  Gift cards are all it seems anyone wants these days, but it just doesn't seem special enough to give money or a gift card in an envelope...I don't know...just old fashioned I guess.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by.
