Patties Creations Design Challenge #14

Good morning everyone!  I hope you all have had a wonderful week.  Mine hasn't been too bad. Just have some sick kids at home.  It's just a cold that they have but i didn't want to take the chance and get their classmates sick!  Now that it's Friday, i seem to be showing some of the symptoms of the cold.  I'm fighting it any way that i can!!
I should be getting one with Patties Creations Design Challenge. this week.  I can't believe that we are already on challenge #14.  This weeks challenge is to recycle a store bought card on your creation.  It can be anything, use the sentiment like it did.  Or you can use part of the background as your background.  Just be creative and see what you come up with!  I had sooo much fun creating this card.  I used the sentiment off of a card that a close friend gave me last year for my birthday.  The sentiment says " Friends make the world go round...."  I thought that it would work perfectly with the "Hot Air Balloon Ride" I used Kraft paper for the cardbase, the cloud paper is from my stash of papers sitting here.   The rainbow is from my stash too.  The white stitching around the card is done with my embossing pen and white embossing powder.  I used four blue gems i bought from the dollor store.
I hope that you like it and that you take that challenge and see what you come up with.  The challenge ends next Thursday.

New Lines for Lollipop Press

Good morning!! Well i hope that everyone has made it through the winter storm, and i hope that it's over for many of you.  I was catching up on reading some posts this morning and i couldn't believe the amount of snow some people got! We didn't get any snow here but it's been very COLD, these temps are in Celsius so keep that in mind, at night time it's been getting to -15 C.  and during the day it isn't so bad, it gets up to -7 sometimes even -5.  I think that this might be the last day of the cold for us here in the Okanagan, or at least i'm hoping!! :)

I would love to introduce you to the new line from the Lollipop Press called Old School.   You can find the kit HERE.  What i'm going to do is take one layout a week and show you.  I'm going to start with my fav. This page is all about my son.  I thought that this kit was smash on with him and these pictures.  All products used are from the Old School kit.

I hope that you like it.
