Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #9

Ok so I got this done for the first time (under the time limit). I really enjoyed using STARS because I LOVE stars. I also tried a new idea...can you spot it? By the sentiment (Congratulations from the Great Grads set) I punched out a small star and traced around part of it. Using a hobby blade, I cut around that star in the upper corner and slid my main image panel under it. I really like the way it turned out and plan on sending it to my best friend Sara who just received notification of some amazing med school accomplishments! (Way to go Sara!)

Anyway, I hope you like it...leave some comments on my unfrequented blog...PLEASE!!! Have a fantastic day! Almost to the weekend now! :)

SU! Convention Bound

I am soooo excited! I am going to Stampin' Up!'s Convention from July 30th-August 2nd (coinciding with their 20th anniversary). I am making bunches of different swaps, both general and ones I've signed up for with my ladies over at Splitcoaststampers! Here's a pic of one that I'm doing for the "Dream" 3D Items Swap...

***Note: I DID NOT make this project, but will be remaking it as it was a fantastic idea. I received it in my email from Scrapbook & Cards today ( which is a Canadian publication that is available both in stores and for FREE online. I LOVE it!!! Please check it out!

Anyway, I participated in a craft fair this last Wednesday so I'll be posting pictures from all the projects I made from soon as I get them photographed!!!
