Hopefully you just arrived from Michele's Blog  if not, please start with Bobbi Jo

I made this card to surprise my grand daughter who is turning 9 and when asked what she wanted for her birthday, responded with "I want a laptop"! To which my daughter immediately interrupted and replied "you don't need a laptop, you are only 8!"....  I asked again, "what do you want baby?"... this time she replied with "I want headbands grandma".... and a laptop she will get!!!   What can I say, she is my grand baby!!!  --she will also get headbands from me, but in this card I will have to go purchase a stamp with a mouse because I will be giving her the headbands (headbands with felt flowers I have made for her) and this card with money in it so she can purchase a mouse... and she will have to guess what a mouse is for?...still thinking on how to make it fun for her to guess!

Card | Dilo En Español Release Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of Dilo En Español Release party!
Bienvenidos al día 2 de la celebración de los nuevos sellos Dilo En Español!

For today's post I am sharing an invitation to a baptism.
Hoy estoy compartiendoles una tarjeta/invitación a un bautizo.

Below you can see a bit more the shine on the stamped little feet and the pearlized cardstock I used.
Aquí en esta siguiente foto se logra disfrutar el brillo en el diseño y en el papel que utilice para crear mi
Why did I add money to my photo?  Well, glad you asked...  it is customary for the Godparents to throw money up in the air after the baby has been baptized. 
I stamped the image using Versamark and added some PerfectPearls powder to create this effect.
Utilice Versamark y añadí polvito PerfectPearls para lograr este resultado.

The picture above shows a more true to life color (but no shine).
En esta foto se disfruta el color verdadero de la tarjeta/invitación (pero no se logra ver el brillo).

Strike A Pose | Happy N Scrappin'

Today I have a two page layout that I created for
Happy N Scrappin'
using the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Collection

This is my Lauren posing for Grandpa/Camera-- she loves to pose and make faces (I am amazed she smiled here instead of making silly faces or opening her eyes super wide).
I had lots of fun creating this layout --
I was able to use the cute brads, twine and embellishments included in this girly collection!
For this tag I used a SEI tag just by changing the cord to MME's twine.
This tag I had in my collection but you can find Tim Holtz tags at the STORE.
The journal card is from the Project Life collection I already had in my studio.
I added a sticker from the MME's collection and a Tim Holtz mini paper clip.
A closer look at the tag and twine (notice how I created the kite's tail with the MME's twine).
Here a closer look at the kite using the PP included in the MME's collection, some twine and an embellishment also from the collection.
