A Princess Party 46

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, March 15, 2011 @ 3:06 PM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great day! Lucky me to have the day off from work and lots of "me" time to get crafty! I had a lot of fun playing with a lot of goodies from the My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Hazel Collection. First up is a layout featuring my sweet step-daughter Meredith thoroughly enjoying her birthday cake more ways than one, while celebrating her 7th birthday. What a "Kodak moment" :)
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge #21 (sketch by Anam Stubbington) which also involves following a "Celebrate Today" theme along with the sketch. Thanks My Mind's Eye and Anam for another fun sketch to play with and awesome inspiration to get my scrappy MOJO in motion! 
These darling sentiment tags that describe what I love about Meredith are all from the package of Hazel "Lovely" sticker tags:
This large Hazel "Special" Fine Floret Paper tag  is full of so many fun elements all from the Hazel collection. I love all the beautiful colored pearls, the little key and locket dangling from the vibrant aqua colored bias ribbon and not to forget the little button fastened on the twine:
For those of you who are not interested in scrapping but enjoy card making, I have a card to share as well:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #182. Many thanks to Julee Tilman for another fun sketch to play with and to the entire MOJO Monday DT for the fabulous inspiration!
Banners and pennants of all shapes and sizes are such a BIG hit these days ~ you see them flying everywhere! Well, the Hazel "Mother" layered sticker pack contains a multi-layered dimensional one! SWEEET!!!
Love the look of that vibrant pearl brad with those homespun crocheted flowers courtesy of my sweet sister Tina :) Boy, how I wish I had the patience to learn to crochet like her! I have to admit, I lack the motivation especially when she graciously trades me flowers for cards! Ha
Well, that's all I have for today! Thanks so much for looking and I hope you have a good one too! Be Sweet :)
