Mini Scrappers Birthday

OMG she's really a gorgeous big girl now - my baby turned 8 today! We celebrated with a lazy morning of presents, and chillin' together, and then gathered all the essentials for a summer beach picnic. All our friends arrived with picnics and we enjoyed doing what people who live by the coast should do more often - relaxed on the beach all afternoon!

I had my usual thoughts of all gifts homemade, but managed to run out of time, rushing around town yesterday buying her surprises. I did however manage to make her a card - well can you imagine the stick I'd get in this house presented anything but. I found a template of a this cool monster, cut it out of plain cardstock, and then used 1' stripes of different papers which I inked and glued across butting up the edges. I then recut out the template, inked the edges, and decorated. It was quite a large template so I used a 8x8 card to display it well. She loved it so staying up till late last night was all worth it.

Off to our first session of our Mother & Daughter Sewing Class at The Eternal Maker, which we are both really excited about.

  1. You made me laugh Debs. Its so reassuring to here that other people,like me, have the ideal of all homemade gifts...and just run out of time. Imagine if you hadn't made the card yourself! Outrageous!
