Happy Birthday to "Made 4 You Cards" !!!

I thought it seemed like a year since my grandson got me started thinking about a blog and then actually doing it!! After checking back, I found I was right - it has been a year and it has been fun- (even though it is more journaling my projects than an interactive blog at this point)!
     So here is another 1st (in addition to my 1st year LOL!).  I have not made tags before that were for going solo - ie. serving as a card- and these were for a swap (also a first for me!) at my local meet-up: the Awesome Lansing Scrapbookers!

I saw a wonderful idea at the last weekend crop i attended, Chenny made an awesome little book for her niece.  and Ioved it so much, I made one similar for my grand daughter!.  She's four now so I used the "Once Upon a Time" cardstock pad from DCWV and cut the little girls out using " Everyday Paperdolls" and also the Dressup Paperdolls from Cricut. Each page is matboard, covered and embellished - I kept adding sparkles!!

Sister Trip

HI!! Our trip was beautiful and we seem to have perfect timing for weather cooperation! This is a photo wallet I made for our parents and so far, these are the only photos I have printed!! I do like the "wallet-sized" prints - quick, easy and convenient to share!
All this from 2-12"x12" cardstock and decorative papers, with a few shiny stickers! - room for 22 photos!! (I added a "belly band" to hold it closed) When you look at the photo wallet, it is not usually wide open like this so the pictures are mounted to be right-side up as you open the wallet- unfold and flip and turn!!
