Birthday Wishes



Happy Monday my friends. Yesterday was simply beautiful. The humidity has gone away and it was a beautiful day in the mid 70s.  Love that type of weather.  I spent most a few hours of the day getting my Project Life albums caught up.  Our family album is all done via Project Life and I keep it very simple using standard PL cards and journaling.  No extra embellishments. Thankfully it makes the scrapbook go quickly which I appreciate as I'd much rather focus on making cards.  For the boys albums, I do traditional scrapbooks with their school pictures and activities focused on just them. Their layouts are very CAS.  I am about six months behind but have everything organized so it shouldn't take too long to get them caught up!

Now...back to my card today. I'm entered this for two challenges:  CAS(e) this Sketch and Just Us Girls. Erin should take credit for this as she's been making several fall cards and the burlap was a gift from her. Thanks for the inspiration Erin!

  10. Very fallish! Perfect for that autumnal birthday. I had to laugh about you being six months behind on scrapbooks. I'm nearly a year behind one of the granddaughters, and oh, about 30 years behind on my boys. If I get my act together, I'll make one for one of the boys (boys!?HA! the youngest will be 35 in December)for Christmas this year. Anyway, this is a beautiful card. the colors of the leaves is perfect. Bev
