Girlies having fun

I think there's a reason I was given mostly girls in my batch of grands. :) Maybe because I love all things girlish or something. Certainly I love my boys as much, but in boy ways. Regardless, I so love my grandgirls! They are so much fun and we always enjoy them whenever they come to visit. Here are two of them playing silly at grama's house last weekend. Aren't they sweet cousins? :) Grace and Courtney. For this page I used the adorable Lucy Bird paper collection by Imaginisce. Dies are various QK flower shapes, QK scallops edgers, and Katie skinny mini and Classic, Oatmeal and Aquarius fonts.


I love the look of clustering embellishments and these flowers turned out so cute. Layer them, add buttons, or leave them as they are--doesn't take much to make a super cute page embellishment!


And here I used my newest favorite die, the Tim Holtz ticket border by Sizzix. It's even perforated!! Isn't it adorable!



Courtney turned 6 on Monday. When they were here for Memorial Weekend we decided it was perfect timing to have a little party. She was surprised and LOVED all her artsy-craftsy-scrappy gifts!


The tiny cookie cutter crown shape adds just what I wanted to show off Courtney's sweet face. The cupcake is by Cottage Cutz and the cake stand is from the QK funky cake die.


And this larger crown is from the QK Flirt gift set. I love sprucing it up with bling and sparkles.



Here's a comparison for you to see the difference/similarities between a 'real' ticket (photo 1) and the Tim Holtz ticket border (photo 2). They are identical in size (which I love!) and they also are the perfect size to use with the ticket stamp from Stampology's ticketed clear stamps set (photo 3).


Photo 1 - 'real' blue ticket stamped on the back


Photo 2 - Tim Holtz ticket border stamped and used for subtitle


Photo 3 - Stampology, ticketed clear stamps. These are awesome and the variety of phrases included makes this extremely versatile. A must have set, IMO.
