It's All About Love

Today I'm in the process of packing.  I'm taking a trip for a week (plus) to go see my Mama, my brother, niece, and lots of other friends and family members.  I'm super excited to say the least.  I'll be able to hit my favorite (and the BEST) scrapbook store, Pine City Scrapbooking Co., and my favorite (and the BEST) ice cream store in the world, Nelson's Ice Cream Shop.  These are a few of my favorite things.  Can't wait!!

But before I go, I wanted to share a quick card I made a few weeks ago while my BFF was visiting.  We made so many cards and mini albums that I forgot to post some of them.  This was one.  It was made with some Crate Paper products, some Ivory Burlap String, vintage tape, and distress inks.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I have a few posts scheduled for while I'm away, but I may be a bit scarce.  I'll be back in time for our exciting new August release at Paper Sweeties, our Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and a few other things you won't want to miss.  I always appreciate having you stop by.

Blessings to you all,

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - You've Got The Edge - To create the rounded/curved edge (pink piece) on my card, I traced a dinner plate onto my patterned paper.  Then, I cut it, frayed and inked the edge to give it a torn and vintage/aged look.

Double D Challenge Blog - A Pop Of Color - I added some pink to my black/white combo.
