Happy birthday Maya!!

November 1997
Today is a very special day!! My niece, Maya, is turning 13!! She is such a bright, outgoing, wonderful girl!! She is such a kind hearted girl who is very compassionate. I remember the day she way born and how she stole our hearts! This little girl gave me the name "Aunt Aimee" and I couldn't imagine that I could love her so much!! I am so proud of the young lady she has became and can't wait to see what her future holds! I love you Maya Rose!

I decided to make her a card and enter a challenge at Stampin' Celebration. This is a new challenge for me. I loved the sketch and thought I would give it a go! here is my card...
 I loved all the layers of this sketch! It was so much fun to play around with the DSP to find just what I was looking for. I thought this stampset was perfect for a teenage girl too!!
Thanks for stopping by and

BOOO to you!

I have been away for a while...busy with life. I had been wanting to join some challenges but the longer I stayed away the more difficult it has been to spark the creativity again. I saw some fun challenges I thought I would try. At the Friday Mashup they were featuring a new technique, Ink Blowing, I had not tried yet. (Missed the cutoff!) Also the Create with Connie and Mary challenge is using some great fall colors. (I missed the cutoff..BOO!)  Boy am I rusty!! I also loved the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #94. When I put them all together, I came up with this....

This is a retired set from Stampin' Up from last season, Googly Ghouls. I just loved this little set. I made the mummy in the middle look like he was popping out a bit with double dimensionals. The Ink Blowing Technique was so much fun. I believe this will be something that I will use often. This was a very simple card to make with lots of fun little details.
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I will be back soon!
