Quickie birthday card

Well I finally got to sit down at my scrap table today -- boy did it feel good.  What  a wild & crazy month it's been.  Before I could scrap, I first had to clean off the desk -- I've been throwing junk on it all month.  I only made a card -- but it did feel lovely to play with glue & ink.  Yesterday I ordered 150 pics from snapfish from the cruise Brendan & I just returned from.  

So hopefully next week there is some serious scrapping in my future.

I came across a new challenge this past weekend.  CAS -- clean & simple.  What a great idea!  And what  a fabulous way to use up some scraps.

Here's the link:

I used all scraps from Basic Grey Oliver collection.

Sketchy Thursday

For the 3-31 sketch challenge on sketchythursdays.blogspot.com

This is another page in my wedding album.  I'm quickly approaching my 20th anniversary and I've finally taken pity on my photo's that have been stuck in a sticky album.  

I made the flowers by punching out 8 two inch scallop circles.
