loving the trees

in this month's Apron Strings kit, there is some BEAUTIFUL fun paper from Bella Blvd. This is the first time I have used their paper - and I must say, I TOTALLY ADORE IT!!!! (and must get my hands on MORE!) I had fun cutting out the trees from one of the sheets from the Family Tree line. Here are two cards I made with it, and some of the other beautiful goodies in the Apron Strings kit!
We are having a nice quiet day at home today, doing a little of this and that (Legos, dishes, "air hockey" across the coffee table using quarters, laundry, and catching up on the pile of papers that ALWAYS seems to accumulate on the kitchen counter. How does it CONTINUALLY happen!?) Hopefully by the end of the day I will feel more caught up on life around this house!
OH, and my BIG BIG news. . . .after going back and forth for WEEKS, I have made the decision, that I AM going to CHA for a day!!!!! I am sooo excited. I don't know how my body is going to handle all the walking, but I just couldn't be two hours away and NOT go. I have a hotel room booked, and I am committed! Can't wait! Now to find something cool, cute, and comfy to wear. Hmmmm.
Have a wonderful weekend!

lucky you! CHA will be fun! I love all the fussy cutting you did on the cards! You have way more patience than I! Beautiful cards!

Love these cards. They are so cute. I, too, love cutting paper. I used to be a big paper doll fan when I was little, and you HAD to CUT everything out. No punch-outs. I guess that's really telling my age, isn't it?
