sweet smile :D and blog award!

hey there!

happy friday to everyone... hope you're planning on having some fun this weekend.

i just got my hair cut (it's the same way i normally do it, just... shorter!) and i tried to re-create the salon look that my hairdresser did for me yesterday. does anyone else have the problem where it doesn't look quite like it did when you left? haha... i tried really hard, i really did :D but anyway, i'm planning to have some fun this weekend. i'm going to see "The Other Guys" with my friend Paulina (seems like we haven't met up in FOREVER!) and i'm ready to have some laughs :D

tomorrow is an 'open day' for me which is good because i won't have many more of those left before school starts. let me just tell you... teachers don't want summer to end!! *le sigh*

but there is some more fun planned... at church on Sunday night i'm going to be going to an ice cream feed... who doesn't love ice cream??? :D

and here i am to share with you some sweetness... i love this paper from DCWV Sweet Stack, and it's perfect for these girly shabby chic cards :) yummy enough to eat, right? hehe :D

there's some lovely lace layered on top of a Fiskars apron lace border punch strip... then there are some roses and May Arts ribbon with PTI buttons, Colorbok sentiment circles, MS punched butterflies topped with rhinestones, and then some Colorbok strawberry buttons on top of MM white glitter flowers. and don't forget the doilies! i cut them in half and layered them behind the middle portion--you can see them peeking out from the sides. i also used PTI's Big and Bold set for the pink scroll image stamped up at the top of the card.

essentially, both of these chock full of goodness! such fun to make, and i'm so happy to share this yumminess with you. hope you enjoy! (calorie free... hehe!)

so a while back (actually a month ago) the sweet
Amy gave me a blog award! Amy has a super unique and lovely style that inspires me every time i visit... she has truly mastered the art of using her Cricut to add something special to just about every project she makes (you've made me jealous of your savvy Amy!!) go check out her blog and leave her some love...

and now... i would like to pass this blog award on to the following 5 people for their fabulous blogs that always inspire me... (there are seriously so many more blogs out there that i frequent like a stalker :D hehe! but for this i'm just passing it on to five lovelies!)

Paulina of PrettyPinkPosh
and Karen Baker of The Bald Dragonfly

(and an honorable mention/ shout-out goes to my sister Cecelia of Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia... but she doesn't fully count for this blog award since she doesn't paper craft :D unless you count devouring hundreds of books in a short amount of time--hehe!)

so that's a wrap... you would be doing YOURSELF a favor by dropping by these blogs to check out their latest and greatest... serious eye candy happening at every single one :D

thanks for stopping by and checking everything out. now go out and enjoy your weekend! XOXO

Wow, fabulous creation. I admire your ability to layer without overcrowding, your sense of color and your style. Thanks for the award, so very sweet of you!
