{Good Eats}

I love the 213 in 2013 videos on They really push me towards design freedom! I took Celine's challenge to use black and white on one half of the LO and color on the other. Since I chose a black and white photo I really had full freedom to choose my colors and I loved every minute of it. See it on my 2peas profile Here to see the products I used.

{New Workshop}

I have a confession, I LOVE! And they just announced a new Workshop by another crafter I love, Celine Nevarro! I plan on taking this one for sure! She is an amazing scrapper! Check it out HERE.

MyCraftChannel is having a 24 hour sale! All the items in their shop are $9.99! Yes, $9.99!! If you love October Afternoon make sure you go check it out, they have a lot! I just got the CakeWalk collection for my daughter's first birthday:) 

{Birthday Love!}

I love card making! It really is so simple to just create a quick card like this. Not to mention it will mean so much to the recipient! Without card making I would have a stash overload! It helps me use up those supplies so I can buy more! LOL

For all my cards I use the cards from JoAnns that are already cut and scored. They were on sale too! (I'm all about a sale) $5 for 48 A2 size cards with envelopes! Can't beat that!

This card was so simple! I used a light cream pattern paper for the background, then added a stripe of Maggie Holmes paper called "Remember This" with clouds on it. I just LOVE the paper from Maggie Holmes!! Next I used some pink trim, I felt like it needed to be grounded a little. I just love the pinwheels from Crate Paper's "The Pier" collection. It came with 6 pin wheels!! So I can be a card making Ninja if I want to;0) I added a simple enamel dot to the center of it and then a small wood venner piece to the corner. {Funny Story} The reason I added the wood venner is because I tore the paper right there, lol, but it works! Next, I added the "Happy" sticker from "The Pier" mini alpha and small title sticker sheet and I stamped the "Birthday" in brown ink. I love how it all turned out!
