chick chick here & parisian goodness...

TGIF my peeps....TGIF!!!

I had some fun with Laura's sketch #50:


I love that my local craft shop is carrying some Jillibean...

Everything is Jillibean except for the alpha, those are Cosmo Cricket...you might not be able to tell but I put pearls down the right side of the card...nothing loud or bright....just a smidge of goodness:)

I wanted to also share a little "Happy Hostess" giftie that I put together. I'm a huge fan of Cavallini....from their stamps...to their file folders....the calendars....decorative wraps....you name it, I LOVE it.

Check out those sweet parisian sticky notes...I added the seam binding ribbon and slapped together the tag {check it out Ivy...I'm using a tag...thanks sista!!!}.

My engagement party was at my dear friend's place...her home is truly lovely...like out of a home decor magazine lovely. I figured she'd dig the sticky notes so I dolled up the tag with Cavallini Paris stamps...a smidge of lace trim that I stitched directly onto the tag and a vintage MM label...easy smeasy. I just attached the tag with more of the celery seam binding ribbon...

♥♥ On a side note♥♥

I received a graduation announcement and picture of my flower girl...she's graduating from college...COLLEGE....good grief, I feel old. Still the whipper snapper that she was when she was a toddler...going for her Master's degree...thatta girl!!!

My girl has been driving us around lately...she's doing GREAT...so calm, cool and collected...even drove the car into the garage...oy...she was so cute, she kept asking if she was doing a good job {she was} and if I was going to blog about it...hahahaha...
