Some Zaniness and a Birthday Card-

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted anything. I have been a little a little crafty. :)

The Zany Layout was done as a challenge in an online group in CafeMom-We had to use yellow, scallops, the word crazy, (or some sort of word along those lines). This Layout was way outside my comfort level- I have never used these bold type colors before. The paper comes from a Micheal's paper pack ( having to do with teen angst). All in all I am pleased with the way it turned out.

I made the BFF LO for my bff ( naturally) It was also done as a challenge- we had to use both black and white photos. The little dragonfly stamp is from Unity Stamps ( one of the KOTM'S). Paper is from my stash, I used light blue stickles and little blue acrylic half cirlces all around the shaped paper.

My final project is the brown birthday card for my brother in law, Josh. He turns 30 on Sunday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH!! The stamp and paper are SU! Blue buttons are from my stash, I used my cuttle bug folder to emboss the brown cardstock, and nestabilities were used for mounting the stamped image.

On another note- does anyone know what's going on over at Hanna Stamps? I haven't had much of a chance to shop there recently ( I know that Riley Moose is no longer with Hanna)- But they have cleared just about everything out- there are still somethings on sale- but most of their stock is gone. I was very sad when I saw this.

Tomorrow is going to be such a busy day- it's teacher in service day so the girls are going to be home all day. This is going to make my day more difficult than normal- because I'm home schooling my son and he's SO NOT going to want to do his school work. I know this, but, I'm still hoping I can get him to participate and get some stuff completed. Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope that your weekend is relaxing and full of fun!
