OK, so I did my hair and then went outside to let the dogs out for a few minutes and came back in with my hair sticking to my lip gloss - geesh! It's windy out there...crazy windy! The temp is around 84, but the wind is truly miserable. Hopefully it will die down soon. Anyway, I'm off to be creative, but wanted to share with you this card I made a couple days ago using the October Afternoon papers again. Just love them! There's no stamping on this card at all, just a couple stickers and some pretty ribbon trim and stick pin from my collection. Very simple and sweet, just like I like my summers! Hope your beginning to summer has started off well - our kids are home now and ready to have some fun - so bring it on! Hugs - Brenda

Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday! This is a card I made for my sis-in-law's birthday. I love it b/c it's so simple and made entirely with stickers, rub-ons and paper - no stamps or "flash". The rub-ons were a bit of a challenge for me, as they are kinda static-y, but they ended up looking pretty cool. The papers are once again October Afternoon and from the same collection as yesterday's layout. SO lovin' these papers and accessories! Hopefully she feels the same way :) Hey - school's out Friday. Can you believe it???!!! Seems like just yesterday I was sending the kids off to their new school year. *SIGH* Guess that means summer is on it's way as well, which makes me eternally happy. Have a blessed day! Brenda

Strawberry Girl

Hi there! A gloomy, cloudy sun to be had today, but thought I'd share a "bright" and sunny layout featuring my daughter and her favorite fruit (maybe food). I used Bazill Basics papers for the background and the strip of strawberry paper and stickers are from October Afternoon. I added the "bling" on the berries and also added some buttons from my stash. Makes my day a little brighter just looking at the pictures :) Hope your Monday is bright and sunny where you are - whether the weather is or not. Hugs! Brenda
