More Crate Paper Scrumptiousness

     Hi Y'all!  Another LO here created with new Crate Paper scrumptiousness!  The circular flowers were an idea I grabbed off the Crate Paper blog.  *thanks Crate DT - y'all are awesome!*

This is a pic of my mom, dad, sister and I when we lived in Pacific Grove CA in the mid 70s.  Check out the afro on my dad, would ya! :)

Hopefully you've all participated in the blog hop over at Paper Issues and that may even be how you found me!  If so, you may be wondering when I am going to announce a winner of the lovely swag I previously posted.  I plan on using the child-generated random number picking system this weekend and announcing then.  Please stay tuned!

Crate Toy Box - A boy and his 9th

Hello party people!  This is a LO that goes with my two previous posts.  One was a card and one was the banner I gave my son on his birthday March 15th.  This one is a LO of the paintball party we had.  Oh man, we had a blast!  Aren't you all nervous about your childs party - whether kids come, if he will be happy, and on and on... I plan parties for a living and I wasn't as stressed as when trying to make Cade's come together. 
They had a ball moving the "men" around on the "war" cake, and even got to shoot mom in the tummy (uh YES it left a bruise!).

Thanks for taking a gander. Oh and hi to all the new followers!  Thanks so much for being here!  :)

I forgot to give y'all a sneak of the project I will be posting on Saturday! Okay so this is a card, not part of my project but it goes with my project, and uses the same Crate Paper goodness! My son turned 9 on Tuesday, and this was the card I gave him. It went along with the armed forces theme and the paintball party we had. Did I get in on the action? I have the bruises and welts to prove it! :)

Don't forget to join us Saturday for the Paper Issues blog hop!

Happy Friday!

I am going retro today and posting a couple of my older LOs in hopes that a certain design team finds them and appreciates them  :)  Comments are very much welcomed!  Thanks for checkin' out my old school pages.  :)

This adorable girl is a friend of mine's daughter.  Adelle loves the garden and I made this LO for her in her favorite colors that match her room.  Tons of My Little Shoebox sweetness on this page! 

This page is just to sweet not to make honorable mention!  Look at that angel :)  Love, Elsie, Basic Grey and American Crafts here.
