banner birthday


Good Morning!

This poor card is a 2 time pub sub reject BUT I still love it!

It's the facial expression of those kids, so stinkin' adorable.  It absolutely makes me smile!


Chock full of October Afternoon's Calkwalk collection.  I added a clothespin from Pebbles and a tiny SRM Happy Birthday sticker.  Everything is sitting on Timeless Twine Lemonade Yellow.


Yesterday was a super fun day for me!

I helped out at Seattle's Scrap Expo!

I had the fabulous opportunity to work the Avocado Arts Booth!

Here's a pic with Michelle, owner of Avocado Arts:


Seriously, how cute is she?!!!!!

I actually met her at the 2012 CKC Seattle and LOVED her energy!!   I'm thrilled to be on her Design Team and to be able to work the booth.  

Guess who stopped by the booth?

Kimberly of Wienerhoneymooners!


This is actually the 2nd time I've met Kimberly but the first time for a photo!  Have you checked out her blog?  She's on fire with her cards and creativity!

Okay, that's it for me!

Today is the boy's family birthday party!

  24. Poor card- it's actually fantastic- but then you knew that already!! Sometimes our creations are home birds - they don't fancy flying the best!!! Love your take on banners. Get you hobnobbing with all those crafters, doing a booth sounds such fun. Enjoy the birthday celebrations!
