Happy Birthday to me!

I had the most relaxing birthday yesterday.I received an edible arrangement from my kids. I love Chocolate dipped Strawberries.  I was able to spend it with family, cuddle with my grandson and I even created a little. I finished this little mini book for a challenge over at Swirlydoos. 
 Pauline over at Swirlydoos created an adorable mini book inspired by Tim Holtz video titled Valentine's day mini book. Can I say wow, I just had to try it. Pauline gave us some rules: create a mini album using:

* the folding technique Tim shows in his video.
* use packaging, that came in one of your kits.
* Use left over strips of paper.
* use paint or Gesso
* use some sort of frame.
Here is my take on the challenge. 
I also created a layout for Scrapping Everyday Miracles sketch challenge, please make sure you check them out. It's a great sketch, here's my interpretation of it. 
the challenge twists was to incorporate a digi element. I used the TallyScrapper Badge in the right hand corner. I had the honor of meeting a group of fabulous online friends in person @ Texas Tally Rally. I miss these girls, and wished I had taken a photo with each lady there, we had about 30 women there and boy did we scrap, laugh, scrap. lol
As always thanks for stopping by. Muah!!!!

creating is so much fun...

when you are really into the project. I have been working on this wall hanging for the past 3 days, adding, taking away rearranging but in the end I just love it. I purchased the wall hanging from one of the booths at the Scrapbook Expo. The store is one of my favorites when I go to the Expo it's called Creek Bank Creations. They have all kinds of scrapbook supplies, but my favorite is always the original chipboard items they make. Oh and for the very first time I got my hands on some Authentique pattern paper love the feel of this pattern paper, I used the Loyal line for my wall hanging. I also got to use my Cricut Imagine along with the Baseball Cartridge love it. Here's my project, thanks for stopping by... Oh and I forgot to mention that my grandson was the star in my project.
