Choose A Movie Card

Hi all,

Today I am announcing a super fun Challenge over at International Art and Soul - Challenge #50 Choose A Movie. Isn't that a fun theme for a card.

So my card is of Bambi, when he became an adult. This was one of my many favorite movies when I was a child, I even had a few books. lol

For my card I used Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland. I just loved the beautiful deer and the scenery that is in this paper collection. I fussy cut some of the beautiful flowers, blue butterfly and log with the cute rabbits and raccoon. When I created this card I also had in mind to send it to my brother for his birthday coming up in February. I think he will like it.

I Love My CAT Folio (Pictures)

Hi all,

Well I have been down with the flu for the last few days. So this was the soonest I could post my I Love My CAT Folio I created for my daughter.
For this Folio I used Echo Parks CAT paper collection and Echo Park Pretty Kitty Stamp Set throughout the book. The stamp set is so cute and loved how it looked in the little journaling booklets I created. I hope you like everything. If you are interested in the CAT paper collection just click on the link it will take you directly to spot you can view the paper

This is actually my first Folio I've ever done and I had so much fun creating it. Loved how it turned out and it's totally cat approved as my daughter's cat Jack was giving it a good inspection. lol

Here is how we ended up with Jack in our family. As my oldest daughter was driving home one day from work she saw something fly across her windshield and hit the corner bumper of her car. She pulled over to inspect what it was and saw that it was a kitten. Thank goodness she didn't run over him. Poor little guy was shaking. So she picked him up and brought him home. Of course we had two dogs at the time and although we liked cats we weren't planning on getting any more pets cause everyone is out of the house except our youngest who will graduate next year. Well needless to say after pleading and multiple and multiple crying from our youngest daughter, we gave in to keep the lil'fella. Poor lil guy had been thrown out onto the highway into on coming traffic and his nose was bleeding and his eye was a little scratched but that was it and being scared out of his wits. Well he is over a year old now and I have to say he has won our hearts. He is the best little cat and we just love him dearly. So when I saw this paper collection I just had to make a book for my daughter and Jack. I hope you enjoy the photos.

I am entering a few challenges with my Folio.
