QFTD225, Cayden

Well, Ms. Trish retires today after 225 challenges! What a fantastic job Trish has done, posting and notifying us of the QFTD challenge. Thank you, Trish!

Now, Jenn, Fattire7 (you must explain this handle!) takes over and is the QFTD. Best of luck, Jenn!!!

I chose this card to case for the layout. Changed theme from teenage boy to baby boy and added a charm in place of brads. Fit my need for my great-great nephew's birthday card!!! Thanks for the inspiration, Jenn!

I think that one Teddy is angry 'cause the other two are sleeping and he's not....wadda bully bear!

Have a great day

Nay's birthday

Today is a very special lady's birthday.  A woman of strength and characer (wadda character!).  Renee is one of my very best friends....I swear we are soul sisters!  She is a lady of immense talent who has shared and taught me soooo much...both with her artistic abilities and the way she lives her life!  She and her husband have been married forever....in a day of divorce, I find that an immense achievement...but the best part?   They are still totally devoted to each other.  Fantastic mom; fantastic wife; fantastic friend!

I love ya, Ms. Renee!  HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

CCEE1434, Back to School

Back to school --- Amber's kids start back to school today and she's doing the happy dance.

Amber wants us to make a card or item that can be given to the teacher at open house or the first day of school.  Laynee started second grade yesterday and I made this card for her to give her new teacher.  I used two Sassy Cheryl digitals ... first, I sized the books like a big stack and then the little gal smaller to fit on top of the books showing she's "on top of things".  Used the computer to write "2nd Grade....Ready to Learn1" and had wrote the math problems.  Paper piercing finished the card.

Hope you like it and hope you will join in with the CCEE team.  Link back to the CCEE Blog and add CCEE1434 to keywords on SCS.

Hey, I bet a lot of you are doing the happy dance!
