After a fantastic weekend of splurging, indulging, visiting, and rocking in Vancouver with some fabulous people, I'm back with a shorter post than I had intended because I erased some photos from my camera that I shouldn't have. I guess my brain was elsewhere, which has been happening to me a lot lately! Anyway, this is a card I made for someone in town here who dug through her stuff and found a pair of winter boots for Brenna. Isn't that sweet? I had mentioned at Strong Start one day that Brenna had been playing in the snow in gum boots because we hadn't been able to find winter boots for her yet, and she sent a pair home with Ailis the next day!
The design of this card is inspired by one I saw in a Paper Crafts magazine, very simple to put together. I used PB&J paper from Basic Grey, and some CTMH pearls. The ribbon is from my stash, and I cut the sentiment with my Cameo (Pacifico is the name of the font, free at dafont.com) and sprayed it yellow with Dylusions spray - I love that stuff!!! Here's a peek at the inside:
Here's something cool to tell ya: when I was in the lower mainland, I was able to meet Alison, a friend I've met through blogging! We've never met in person before, but I've always thought we led parallel lives - I can't tell you how many times I post something only to see that Alison's completed the same challenge, or I'm having a rough day with one of my kids and then I read Alison's post and see that the same thing has happened to her! Anyway, it was pretty neat to actually meet up with her in person, and I have the photo as evidence:
Which brings me to my next question: Are you doing a December Daily album? I am part of a facebook group started by my friend Carole - we actually "met" two years ago doing this very project! We also have a pinterest board with some fantastic winter inspiration pinned, so if you are interested in joining us, let me know and I can set you up with our group. And that is what I have planned today, some cutting with my cameo to get my base pages ready. My goal is to have the album all set by the time December 1st comes around, not like last year...
