And so it begins......the unpacking from the crop!

I finally cleaned out one of my bags from last week's crop.  We pack so much and then we have to unpack, lol!  Kel and I really had a great time and I got 20 pages done, my son's entire High School Football album and about 15 cards, so I did well.

I made this card for a girl that is turning 13. I won't mention any names because her Mom reads this blog, lol, its for Dawn's daughter.

My recipe:

StampinUP! paper for the base
Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder for the brown paper
The Patterned paper I bought on (awesome sight, when you buy patterned paper they send you and email with ideas on how to use it!!) The paper is from Imaginsce Hello Cupcake Collection
Both frames are cut from the Just Because Cartridge
The Present is from Celebrations cartridge
Twine and bling are from my stash

I also wanted to mention to those that have the Cricut, if you haven't already you have to down load Cricut Craft Room, its free and works awesome!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day.
