Feel Better Soon

Hello!  If you are reading this I thank you for sticking around.

Papercrafting time was put on the back burner for months while in the process of downsizing and looking forward to retirement.  The retirement in itself will bring major changes, but that's another post. I am hoping the downsizing will be appreciated by my sons; probably not as they have no idea the amount of stuff that has left this house!  Well, in any case, I have done (am doing) my part!

A couple of events happened that needed cards (sad events) and a couple of birthdays, so I pushed aside the awful mess in the Sun Room Studio and got to it.  Here's the card for a long time friend who has been having health issues.

Inside it says "Feel Better Soon".  Praying for complete recovery for this sweet guy.

Hope you are having a wonderful summer.  Thanks for sticking around!  Hugs, Shawna 

Supplies: Spellbinders, embossing folder, Silhouette, Computer generated sentiment, and Melanie Muenchinger Year of Flowers sentiment (inside)

Easter Scrapbook Page

Hi all! Another Silhouette Sunday and today I have a scrapbook page It's a flashback from the former Paper Kisses and inky Wishes blog, but I can never get enough of remembering the grandkids when they were little.  This is Zachary and his daddy dying Easter eggs.  so cute!
I just love the picture of my oldest son with my youngest grandson. Zachary was very excited to be coloring eggs with daddy!
Even though this is an Easter page and I always think pastels for Easter, I didn't want the page to appear girly so I went with a palette of browns with a little bling and one pop of color. I think it was successful.
The mat with the gold fleur de lis pattern and the turquoise circle were so easy to size and cut with the Cameo. I am loving the 12" platform!!! The journaling box is simply a smaller cut of the mat file and I used the sketch pen option to add the information on the paper before cutting it out. To sketch you simply replace the blade with a sketch pen, choose your font and wording and away you go. Easy peasy!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your weekend to visit More Paper Kisses and Inky Wishes. It means a lot to me. Hugs, Shawna
