Celebrations.....

I love using kraft cardstock, I think they go well with any color don't you think?
So I am definitely going to play along with the challenge this week at The Kraft Journal, the theme is "Celebrations"

here's my take....


hey, I am using RED again.... (so not me)


handmade flower....


I always have problem with the glimmer mist spray bottle, after a while, they kind of got stuck and I had to pour the mist out of the bottle in order to use it, so the color of this flower did not turn out the way I want it.... sigh....


you still have time to join in the fun at The Kraft Journal, hop on now.....

more pictures from my trip.... (Scottdale, AZ)

saw this sign on Interstate 17 South, how cool is that for an address, bumble bee!!!!


we stayed at The Four Seasons Resorts in Scottdale Arizona, look at our back patio....


this is what we saw when we look out of the hotel room window...


thanks for stopping by.....

Olá Kirsty... Bela flor vermelha! Amo o vermelho e tenho muita dificuldade em fazer projetos com essa cor! Até carimbo de flor em vermelho voce usou! Lindo demais!

What a super adorable card, Kirsty! Love, love your take on our celebrations theme at the Kraft Journal this week. I so love the red mixed with kraft. Love the doily and LOVE that handmade flower. Thanks so much for playing along with us.
Your photos are amazing. What a fabulous place to visit. My grandparents lived in Arizona, but it's been years and years since then. Sure would love to go back again some day. As a child, I don't think I really appreciated the cacti like I would now. TFS!

Hey, this is a good idea..Kraft cardstock..the natural color gives the easy match to any card/paper..earth color..yes indeed.
ooo. I love this sweetness card element ..like country elements..and sooooo sweet...
