Last month or so, I shared a number of baby cards made with Elle's Studio Cienna. While I had this pretty collection out, I decided to put together what could be a wedding, anniversary or even a friendship card. The colors are uplifting, fresh and pretty. I think they'd be guaranteed to brighten anyone's day, don't you?

This card (put together with items from various Paper Issues Swag Bags and items from my stash) is definitely heavy on the pink (and black and white) but that's what little five year old birthday girls love, isn't it?

I don't create many boy/masculine projects, but when I came across this rocket ship paper in my stash an idea for a boy's birthday card popped into my head and I went with it. Before I knew it, it was done. It doesn't happen often, but I sure love when it does.

June is a busy birthday month in our family which always inspires me to make cards. This one is a mix of Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy ephemera, Crate Paper gold star vellum, Bella Blvd. Color Chaos, and Doodlebug Glitter Sprinkles.

One of my nieces recently graduated from high school. I really can't believe it! It seems like just yesterday she was born. She's heading off to the University of California Berkeley in the fall. Before she does, she plans on spending three weeks in Ohio shadowing my sister, Deborah, to experience the day-to-day happenings in the life of a pediatric neurologist. I'm thinking we're going to have another doctor in the family before long...

If you can believe it, today I'm sharing something other than a card! Alexa's dance team performed their jazz routine to a cover version of the song, Queen Bee. With her black sequined top, feathery flower clip, fishnet stockings and bright yellow skort, she certainly looks the part.
See the oval sticker in the top right corner of the layout? The one that says, "Oh, Honey"? It's a product insert from the false eyelashes Alexa wears for competition. I've been holding onto it for some time, not knowing how or when I'd use it, and along comes this routine! How perfect!
Have you used product packaging on your projects? There are so many fun labels and tags on the products we buy. I love to put them to use!
