Celebrate



Happy Friday my friends.  Blogging live this Friday morning.  I set up a draft of my post earlier this week, but didn't get a chance to write it up until just now.  We have a busy weekend ahead with Marcel finishing up his play tonight and tomorrow and Collin/Ryan finishing up their show choir competition season tomorrow.  It's so strange to think that Ryan is at the end of competing for show choir. It has been five absolutely amazing years.  I've loved watching him grow and most importantly have so much fun. He has made so many fabulous friendships and truly grown as a performer. I'm sure there will be a few tears tomorrow (from us senior moms and from the kids) with gentle reminders to all of this to truly cherish these times.  The time is near for Ryan and his friends to bloom.  The countdown to graduation is just a couple short months away.  

Back to my cards...Lindsey from Occasional Crafting was so kind to send me one of the 12 Kits of Occasions last month. I just got around to using this amazing kit.  I love it! So many fabulous details. My first card up top is inspired by Anita's gorgeous MUSE inspiration card below.   I loved how she placed the sentiment. Instead of masking I used a series of die cuts.



My second card used this adorable elephant and fabulous die cuts.  Don't you just love the colors?


And this card went to a very dear friend who is celebrating her birthday this week...I love the combination of gold and coral. So stunning together!  Thank you again Lindsey for choosing me as the winner of your amazing kit!  I'll be sure to make more cards from all the remaining goodies!

  4. What a treat for us today to have all these incredible cards from you, Lynn! Aren't those kits amazing?! Those girls work so hard! I especially love the sweet ellie card! I wish Ryan all the best at this major crossroad in his life! He will go far with the foundation you and your husband and his brothers have given him - and his extended family, too, of course!
