I am finally starting to get some scrapbooking done here and there.  I found this picture in my craft room and decided to get it done.  I started with this wonderful piece of paper and the design just took on a life of its own.  I matted the picture with a cut from Elegant Edges and then a small doily.  I then reached for my Pagoda cart as I knew there was a nice blossom on there that matched my paper.  Wow, did it ever!  I was tickled pink!  I then added some more flowers from my Prima stash.   It just needed that extra kick.  I then added some stickers and brads.  Yep, that was better, but still not enough.  I added a layer of ribbon to the bottom, and then another, and attached them with the Tim Holtz mini staples.  Well, now the top of the page needed something.  So, I grabbed my MS Elegant cake cart and made the top border.   I then needed to anchor it, so I added a ribbon there as well.  Ah, much better!  I added the "Celebrate" bling and it felt complete.  Wow, am I slow at scrapbooking but I love the results!

Run for the Border!

I made this Thank you card for my sister.  She made me a very lovely mini album.  I liked the Tim Holtz distressed sticker with these two girls on it and chose it for my beginning.  Since I know my sister likes mini envelopes, I made one from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  Yep, she loved it and immediately asked which cart I made it from!  lol!  I also wanted to put a border on it so I could use it for the Cricut Weekly Challenge.  The border and "Thanks!" is from Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes.  The flower is made from Flower Shoppe cart.  I made the card antique looking because that is what we are!  lol!

Bird Cage Swap

I made these bird cages for a swap that I am in.  I used A Child's Year, French Manor and Kate's ABCs for the images.
