HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBY & Scrapbook Page

Happy Birthday to our niece Abby!! She's four years old today! We hope you have a wonderful birthday Princess Abigail! May all your birthday wishes come true!


Next, I have a scrapbook page to show you. I created this for a challenge to use a crossword puzzle or a word search on your page. I asked a very nice lady on the Cricut message board to stamp the Stampin' Up Word Search background stamp for me. She stamped a few, mailed them to me, and that's what I used on my page. I love the way it turned out!


I'm loving this color combination! These are My Mind's Eye Kaleidoscope papers. The "haircuts" was cut with my QuicKutz. I added some ribbon that I got from the $1 spot in Target, some Primas and brads, and I journaled on the computer. I also added one of those fun Making Memories clips to the top photo. I love those clips! Fun page!

The scrapbook that I was hired to make has left the building. I am DONE! I was very pleased with the end result, and better yet, I do believe that the lady who hired me was very pleased too. She seemed very excited about it! I hope her nephew likes it. What a nice gift! Can you imagine receiving a scrapbook about your life for a wedding shower gift? That would be amazing!

Off to the dentist today for a cleaning, and then I have errands to run. It's COLD and WINDY! Wow, is it windy! It's crazy windy! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
