Full Circle...

Is the perfect way to describe my feelings towards
my latest creation for this week's

...a layout I made based on the theme "double play"
:using 2 images; one can be a sentiment
and/or this sketch by Jay Jay ...

I can't wait to see what you create!

Upload your NEW creations to the Pixie Cottage Challenge #28

for your chance to win Pixie Cottage Stamps


Why "full circle" you may ask?

The answer is that the very first card I made for a challenge showcase as a design team member used one of Eileen Gutierrez's images. Eileen,whom I've know for years, thanks to eBay and who I owe many thanks to for introducing me to Miss Michelle.


This week I "doubled up" creating with

the rubber stamp: Birthday Boy by Eileen Gutierrez

and my Digital Image: Come On UP

I ran the cream card stock right through the printer
...voila...the perfect tree fort!
When I affixed the "image portion" to the layout I left the top un-sewn (pocket style)
-thinking I could add more photos, artwork, or hidden journaling inside.
When it came time to figure out what to do for the half circle shape in the sketch~ upper right it dawned on me to make an embellished top tag...good potential there will be more as I love journaling!

The title came from a pack of vellum quotes for boys- this one was beyond perfect...

Everyday spent with my beautiful blond blue eyed boy is a blessing!

Enjoy the little moments!
