There are SO many wonderful things to celebrate today! First off, my sweet DD is turning 9 today. Happy Birthday Nala! MWAH!
And my good friend from college, who is an assistant coach at Navy, and also happens to be my son's Godfather is turning the big 40! HB Coach Jasper, I'm still younger than you Ivin!! :P
Today is also our weekly challenge over at Raise The Bar - a color combo using yellow, gray, and white. Any hue is fine, as long as all 3 colors are represented. Here is my card using Oliver from The Greeting Farm:
I love this little guy! There was a specific reason why I grabbed this Oliver and Amelia set from DCRU - I hope to work on it this weekend and show it to you, it makes me smile just thinking about it. ;)
I am determined to use my scraps up and found these two great pieces that are quite different but worked well with each other. The yellow layer is covered with polka dots, the gray piece is kind of gothic looking. lol! But pair them together with a happy image and it all worked out well. ;)
I also had the opportunity to play along with some challenges this week!
First off, Cute Card Thursday's "Someone Special": My cousin and his wife are expecting their second son next month. Since I am sending a present for the baby, I thought I'd include a little something for the soon-to-be big brother to let him know that he is super special!
This is also the layout for Sweet Sketch Wednesday's current challenge - totally fun, as well as Crazy 4 Challenge's What are little boys made of? theme.
Finally, The Pink Elephant has an awesome recipe: Yellow, Designer Papers, and buttons. I have no idea where I got that fun white rectangular one, but it felt boyish. ;)
Come join us at Raise The Bar! You can see the other wonderful samples by the DT as well as link up HERE.
Have a beautiful Friday everyone, thank you so much for stopping by!!!
