celebrating & scrapping

Recently my friend, TJ, celebrated a birthday, (woo hoo, happy birthday TJ!) and hosted a birthday crop.  This girl is smart & funny & knows how to throw a party. 
We scrapped & laughed & took lots of pictures & laughed some more.  Tricia, from Cannon, was there.  So glad to finally get to meet her.  Here are a couple projects from the day.

I love the rolled flowers, the hand felted letters & the celebration banner.  These colors are so happy.
Val prepared these cute easter cards as make & takes for everyone.  I could tell she put so much prep work into these.

It was just a lovely day.  Here's to you TJ

I meant to post this earlier in the week, always something to get sidetracked with.  Anyway, here is my project for The Red Bee:

The challenge was to incorporate yarn in the layout. I used yarn in 3 different areas, but I really wanted the yarn to standout a little more.  So, I added more yarn here:

Here is the end result: 
I like how the yarn softened up the branches.  I used The Boyfriend line from one of my favorite manufacturers, Cosmo Cricket.  Their products are so much fun to play with.
