Pastel Florals!

Hi everyone! A pretty Spring inspired card on the blog today! With all of the rain we are experiencing  I really need some color in my life and this card definitely has that! I combined these pretty flowers with a sweet sentiment for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Thank You.

I started with the banner, stamped in pink and simply stamped delicate leaf images around it and then added in the colorful blooms. I also added in some polka dots (my fave!) and some pretty green gems for some sparkle. This oval was layered over a lovely monotone background of the same floral pattern.

I kept the inside simple too, with just a touch of the floral patterns at the corners and a simple sentiment. A few more leaves and polka dots are the finishing touches.

I am entering this card into the Simon Says Monday Challenge: Thank You.

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!

Supplies Used:
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
Recollections gems

Monthly Mini: May

Hi everyone! It's time again for another mini scrapbook and this one is super bright and fun! I created this mini using the carnival themed paper collection 'Midway' from October Afternoon. It's full of so many charming and entertaining vintage images that will take you back to the good ol' days of carnival rides and games!

I had such fun creating this mini and I used every bit of the paper, chipboard pieces, stickers and ephemera until it was bursting at the seams with delight! Here is a little peek of all the fabulous layers.  

I will try to keep my words to a minimum so you can just enjoy the cuteness of this mini scrapbook!

I included lots of areas to add in fun photos of happy days at the carnival accented with the adorable accent stickers from the collection!

A yummy lollipop and some of the vintage ephemera included in this collection.

This is the front and back of two different pages of the book. When opened they make an adorable heart- a perfect spot for more photos!

This page features a vellum envelope and an area to create your own photo strip!

Won't it be fun to add in some zany face pictures to these pieces of miscellany! Plus I added in an instant camera complete with it's own photo!

There you have it- a jam packed, full of fun mini album! Sure hope you enjoyed viewing all of the pictures! I will be adding this one to my other mini albums that are now FOR SALE in my Etsy Shop! Please stop by and check them out!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
