Just A Scrappin' Challenge #5: Chevrons, Anyone?

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Hello and happy Thursday,

Chevrons are all the rage right now in the scrapping, crafting and fashion world. And at Just A Scrappin' we mean to take advantage of this hot, new trend. I will write that the paper for my flower pot is a chevron print; however, only in 12x12 mode do you see the true overall look (I wish I had the 6x6 paper pad). Enjoy the chevron fun.

Happy 35th Birthday, Patrick!

To my fabulous and wonderful husband, Happy 35th Birthday! Usually, I am not a wordy a card and keep moving. However, in this case I will make an exception.

I have known my fabulous guy since we were college sweethearts. And now here we are 15 years later. He truly is a special man both inside and out. I love you with all my heart, Patrick! I hope your birthday is everything you want and more.

Love Always,

Scraps Challenge for March 2012

Sunday, April 8, 2012

I did complete my Scraps Challenge for the month of March, actually I completed two cards. The first card, the one with the rose, was a different card I had envisioned all together. However, my vision was for naught and I scrapped the original in the end. The flower scrap card is the remains of an idea.

The butterfly thank you card is also a scrap and one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy. Thank you for stopping by.
