Crafty Gals Birthday Hop!


I'm late! I'm late!
Forgive me Carolina! Today is the day to post our creations for the Crafty Gals Blog group hop. My mojo was MIA! My card just wouldn't come together and I wasn't happy with anything sooooooo, I turned to my love of scrapbooking to pull me through! :)

Carolina (our hostess this month) wanted to see birthday creations with an animal, the colors red and blue and 4 shapes. Whew! I think I got it all in.
Here's what I created:


A very simple 12x12 page. My papers are from the DCWV Celebration stack. I cut the "1", "2", and "3" pieces from one of the pages and I popped them up on dots. The red strip is SU! real red textured card stock. I used my EK zig zag punch on the striped paper to mimic the green rick rack trim I added to the corner. I added some ink around a few of the edges and buttons. Now, all I need to add is some birthday pictures! :)

Thank you Carolina for a fun challenge! I love your idea!
Please go and check out the other Crafty Gals creations. Their blogs are listed in my right sidebar.

thanks so much for visiting today!

Until next time...
Blessings...
