I completed the pages of my daughters 10th birthday party tonight. I loved how they turned out. It was a Hawaiian party so they played some games and did a couple of crafts and had some food of course. The weather cooperated that day, so the girls went out to do some skipping for a little while. On the first page I used the leftover flower jewels (we used them on the bracelet they decorated) like little bullets around the circular part of the layout. I rarely if ever would use the gable green colour of cardstock, but this time it went great with the theme and colours in my photos.

10 already!

Yesterday my "baby" turned 10 years old! I can't believe how fast time really passes by. I can still recall everything from when I had her 10 years ago. How amazing she has turned out! I am anxious to see how she will grow into a teenager and later an adult, but I definitely don't want it to happen too fast! She is at a perfect age now, well most of the time anyways. She is very independent and strong and beautiful. Even over the last few months she seems to have grown up alot. Soon she will be taller than me, I am sure, and she will look down at me. There will be an adjustment for me when that day comes! Later today we are celebrating her 10th birthday with her friends at her luau party. She has her grass skirt and flower lei all ready to go. She has a lei for each guest that will come to the party. I am enjoying the lovely 19C weather we are having this weekend and it is the perfect time to reflect and be thankful for my wonderful Tiandra.

I managed to get a couple more pages done in my cruise album. Both pages are with pictures we took during our visit to the El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico on the last day. It was so pretty there. I have only two more pages to make and then I will be done.

Cards, cards, cards

My mom came to visit me for Easter weekend and we had a great time. We made plenty of cards together. We both enjoy making cards and other paper crafts. I love the Stampin' Up spring flowers and spring showers patterned papers. They are really beautiful. We made 25 cards using those two papers and no two were the same. We also used alot of the prima flowers on them. These little flowers are so beautiful and coordinate so well with these papers. We also did some shopping (well, lots) during the weekend. We hit our local scrapbook store - Anything Goes, where we had to buy more of these wonderful prima flowers. Since I celebrated my 35th birthday last week, my Mom took me out for lunch and then we hit the mall for a whirlwind afternoon of shopping.

Marineland page

I finished another page today. It is of the whales and dolphins at Marineland from our trip there last summer. I really liked the class last week where we were shown ideas for using puzzle pieces as accents or on tags on scrapbook pages. They look really neat.
