This isn't really my style card because it involved such a big stamp, but I like how whimsical it is.

She picked it apart and suggested adding this and that and I finally got her seal of approval!

Enjoy the Summer! Fun Roller Skating! A page from my Mini Album!

While on vacation in 2011 we all went roller skating. It had been years since I have last skated but we all had such a great time. I was amazed that my girls were able to put on skates and just take off! I am one page closer to finishing my album! 
 I love how fun this tag came out!

I am really enjoying orange lately! It is turning out to be a perfect summer color!

Happy Birthday! Fun Circus Seal Card!

I have a stack of cards from when I first started crafting that need a make over! (Hoarder). Over the years I have learned new techniques and acquired lots of supplies. I finally decided to pick one and make it over using my new style and my supplies!

My Before:

My After:

I love it! I think it looks completely different! 
Since the card was so old the pops dots had dried up, so I was able to take most the card apart. Then I punched new circles and added my touches. Then put it all back together. I think it took me longer to re-do this card because I was working with the basic lay-out already in place.

Seal from Create a Critter
