Paper Flowers

GOOOOOOOD Monday Evening!!!!
Man what a busy weekend. I had a great weekend the only thing that could have been better is if I were at CHA. I was just in Chicago last month visiting in-laws. I should have timed that visit better! Anyway I did manage to squeeze in a tid bit of paper crafting fun on Sunday. This paper pack is an old kit I had from My Minds Eye. I STILL love the fun colors in it. The little paper flowers are so fun and easy to make. I learned about these from a Scrapbook Memories episode on PBS (locally channel 8). I am going to tray and make 2 cards alike when I have my supplies out. #1 because I usually sell them and #2 I already have everything out so may as well right.
Today was Graces first day of middle school waaaaaaaaaaaa!!! She started riding the bus home this year too so naturally I just HAD to get her a cell phone. She was about to BURST right out of her skin when we told her. We waited until we were leaving for the Verizon store before we told her she was getting one or we never would have heard the end of "when do we get it? when do we get it? when do we get it?" OH! the little flourish is a cut from the Cricut, buttons are MME and the orange one is PTI. Stamp is PTI Birthday Basics. Thanks for visiting!!!!

What fun cards Julie! I really like the flowers that you made, and I like your idea about making two cards at a time! Something that I think I'm going to have to give a try! :D

Hey Julie - how the world are you? I hope well. How are you enjoying your new home? I have been having way too much fun this summer, so I took some time off from blogging but am getting back to it this weekend. I love this card and the flowers are gorgeous.

Talk to you soon
