CASED! Make a wish!

I was browsing some of my favorite blogs the other day and found a beautiful birthday card that I knew I just had to try to re-create. It was designed by Amy Sheffer and the sketch is from Jen del Muro. I changed a little here and there and used all Close to My Heart papers and the result is below. This is for my daughter's girlfriend who is turning 8. I am really kinda pleased with the way it turned out.

Here is the link to the card I cased...

OMG! Has it been 2 months?

You don't even want to know my list of excuses as to why I haven't been posting so I will spare you the details and just get to it!

4th of July Mini album

I have been wanting to create a mini-album lately but didn't know how to go about it. I picked my least favorite paper pack that I had on hand and went to it. This is totally from scratch out of my little brain. The funny thing is... I actually really kind of like this paper now! It is called Blue Ribbon from Close to my Heart. Most of the products used on this album are CTMH. This album is 6x6 and the list of all products used is at the end of this post. Thanks for looking!
