TESC 115 - Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!! Summer is officially beginning here in my household...my son's last day of Kindergarten was yesterday and I managed to hold back the tears at the graduation ceremony...yay!! I was pretty much a wreck throughout the day though! Oh well...a little stamping therapy will do me some good this weekend. :)

And just in time...the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge is today! Here's the super fun sketch for you...


And another bright and cheery fun card from me!


A little something using my favorite papers from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite. I just adore their entire new lines!! Such fun colors, but still a bit of vintage flair, don't you think? :)



I used a number of stamp sets here...my new little banners that I love from Hangin' Out and the sun and ric-rac from Garden Party Blooms with my sentiment from Garden Party Critters. Whew! Quite a mouthful there. :)

Busy weekend ahead and I'm already sweating just thinking of it, LOL! It's already smoldering here in Texas and our neighborhood pool is filled to the brim every single afternoon!

Something to look forward to next week though...the Great American Scrapbook Convention is coming to Arlington and I am DEFINITELY making a trip! Tim Holtz will be doing demonstrations AND Melissa Frances will be at her booth in person!!! I can't wait! Anyone else out there going? I'd love to meet ya! :)

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for swinging by!

And be sure to check out the rest of the Sketch Crew's lovely creations!
