Happy Anniversary


A Passion for PaperTrey is sponsoring a fun challenge in honor of the Queen's Jubilee celebration.  I needed an anniversary card for a co-worker and decided to stick with the jubilee color theme.  Of how I love creating backgrounds with stamps.  These medallions are from the PTI Stamp-a-Faire set from last year.  It hadn't seen ink in a while so I decided to ink it up!

In other news, the boys all finished up school last week.  Marcel had a sweet little kindergarten graduation. Here he is with his teacher, Mrs. Smith.  He had a great year and is very excited to be in first grade next year where he can eat lunch at school!

And here he is at his baseball game last week. I think he looks so adorable in the catcher's gear.

And how sweet his is big smile when he's up to bat?  Although I'm not sure he can see underneath that helmet!

Lynn, I love the last pic...that hat is so big on him, and it looks so cute :) The card looks great, I love the red accents with the small medallions. My set hasn't seen ink in awhile either...
