Celebrate.....

I always read on my blog friend Tracy's post about "The Kraft Journal", I love kraft paper and meant to play along each time I read that, but somehow I either can't find time to do it or can't find a "free slot" on my post, I finally get a chance this week : )

The theme at The Kraft Journal this week is
"Carnivals, Parades or Parties" 

Here's my take......


the polka dots and journal paper DP are My Mind's Eye


I made the banner out of the burlap Charlene sent to me when we do the ATC/Vintage goodies swap few weeks ago, the lace that keep the pennants together, the 2 tickets (huge carnival ticket and small party ticket) and pink rose are from her too. Thanks Charlene!


"Celebrate" stamp and vintage buttons are from PTI


crinkled ribbons from Pixie Dust Paperie


I cut the pink pom pom on the party hat from the trim in my Pixie Dust Paperie December Kit "Times Square Twenty 11"


I like this one, I hope you do too!!!
