Longbeach, Wa. is the place she loved so much and her and my dad spent so much time down there.  There is a big Kite festival this whole week and this was her favorite thing to see!! Anyway, On to  the project for the day! I love embossing Folders and this one is one of my newest ones! Very simple but pretty!! Just embossed and chalked with several colors on each word. used some ribbon, jewels and some paper flowers! love how they turned out. The other one is my favorite technique

EDITED------Just when I thought I was finished--------Yes I am still trying to..

Hey all my faithful followers!! I am really trying hard to keep posting here and need all the support I can get!! I have been working on some birthday party decorations for my neighbor girl that is turning 4 next week end..Thought I should share them before I forget. Still need to add a flag to the top of the castles, but I was surprised how easy they were to put together. I used the Once upon a princess cartridge for the castle and the banner is cuts from celebrations cartridge. I am not really happy with how the banner turned out but guess I will settle with it...Running out of time. I am so happy that you took the time to drop by and please leave me a comment So I know you came to see my Blog!!  
So today I got a brilliant Idea to make the castle look like it really had a foundation and this is what I came up with!!
I used a 12x12 piece of chipboard and covered it with some brown card stock. I had some green grass looking stuff that I found at the goodwill. and started covering the board and went around the castle with it. Then that was not enough I thought, it needed a bridge for the gate, and then comes the water for under the bridge,I had some prismatic paper that i had picked up a while back at wal mart, it looks like water! so I took some gold paper and formed a little bridge....then a railing for the bridge, I used paperdoll dress up cartridge for the railing(cut at 1 1/2 inches) and added a fence all the way around it,added more grass around the fence. Oh did I mention that I added Flags to it!! I am very excited for Peyton to see her princess things!! Now I am working on the little gift bags that go with everything. Carri I hope that I will be able to make it to her party!!


  Oh and whats a castle with out a Princess, cut at 3 1/2 inches with (Once Upon A Princess Cartridge)> I have a good friend that might be making a carriage for this but  not sure if it will be done in time? That's all, and I am Proud of this and sometimes I have good Ideas and they go together so good and sometimes not...LOL Today was a good Crafting Day!! Thanks for stopping by!!
