cards I made at the Make n Take

Not too long ago I went to a scrapbook convention in a nearby town with my friend Jen. We were a little disappointed in the amount of vendors but we did do a few Make N Takes and these are the 3 cards that I made. The first one is just a birthday card that turned out cute. The second one was using a cuttlebug folder that featured what looked like a dandelion to me. I colored it somewhat after I got home and that really help make it pop. The other card used the neatest outdoor paper with a cottage on the lake theme. On that we used a sizzix to cut open the pop out center of the card. It's nice cuz it also has a male theme for all those guy cards you have no clue as to what to make.

I also picked up a little project kit that the funds went to some good cause and it was a cute little mini folder card with mini tags in it. I had fun making this one. Not sure what I will use it for but sometimes these mini kits where everything is together just give you that little motivational push to keep on scrapping. I actually did 6 pages this afternoon while my husband was off golfing but soon we will be heading down to the park to hear Otis & the Alligators, watch the boat parade and our fireworks are tonite. We did go to a friends house last nite where he put on quite an amazing show of fireworks so we are lucky enuf to have 2 nights in a row as I do love fireworks! Hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th!
