Happy Bearthday!

I was asked to create some invites for a 3rd year old's camping themed birthday party.  I had so much fun coloring all the elements to give them a little pop!  I even added a few mosquitos and a little "skeeter spray" to the inside for a little more fun.  I only hope the little guy has as much at his party as I had making these!

Looking Forward...

Wow!  I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted to my blog.  Life has changed since my last post.  Instead of moving to Arizona like we were planning, we are moving...well, we don't know where.  My wonderful husband is leaving the Air Force on August 23rd.  And we will be leaving Great Falls.  Right now it looks like we are going to be moving to St. Louis.  But that could all change.  I am Looking Forward to finding out.  Stay tuned for the final outcome!

In the meantime, I have continued to work on my scrapbook and cards.  It has been my sanity in all this craziness.  I can not believe that has put out 52 weekly sketches - and that I have completed all of them.  WOW!  This was my interpretation of MWM 52.  I used 2 shades of blue and 2 shades of brown to make the background paper.  Then I used Stampin' Up Elegant Soiree paper to highlight 2 of my favorite subjects, my husband and daughter, looking out over the Pacific Ocean.  I also used a combination of Stampin' Up and We R Memory Keepers grommets, snaps and eyelets to enhance the layout.

Thank you for letting me take the time to share this with you.  I am Looking Forward to sharing more with you.  I hope to eventually get all 52 layouts posted for you here - as well as some cards I have been making.  I am also Looking Forward to having a giveaway or 2, so please come back!
