And The ROckets Red Glare...

So Kylie started her first day at day care today :/ I'm excited for her but I really hate being away from her. In her absences I was able to create this Fourth of July album. I used the Jane Austen font for the cover. The chipboard star is SU's; after I painted it white I used Stampendous' star dust embossing powder to make it shine :) The pattern paper is by rusty pickle.

Starry Birthday...

Today is my mom's best friends birthday-HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICK! My grandma is throwing him a party tonight at 6:30, its outdoors so I hope this Texas heat will have calmed down by then (lol). A few weeks ago I found this card on Kristina's blog and thought-hey that would be the perfect card to recreate for Rick! I just changed the embellishment, sentiment and ribbon.

Stamps: sanded, birthday basics (PTI)
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Imaginisce, kraft
Accessories: white embossing powder, George and basic shapes cartridge, corner rounder punch, white taffeta ribbon.

So this Thursday, Friday and Saturday is the Great American Scrapbook convention here in Arlington. Since I still can't drive-thankfully July is just around the corner-Kyle's Aunt Jan SOOO generously volunteered to drive me to the convention center and watch Kylie while I shop. I wanted to make her a thank you card, for being so "absolutely fabulous". The soft sky base is 4x3.5. the ribbon is papertrey's berry sorbet. I colored "kylie" with copics. The certainly celery scallop is made possible by my nesties.
