I know – I forgot to post this before May ended – the month just went by so fast.  I can’t believe it is June already and the new catalog has started. Hopefully you already have the Season of Friendship stamp set since it is now retired.

The tree trunk was stamped on Whisper White card stock and then I stamped leaves all over it until I had a tree as full as I wanted.  Then I cut it out to put it on the layout.  I Designer Paper is the Big Top Birthday paper from the last catalog.  It had the perfect page with the banners and clouds and sunrays on it.  To make the Kite I found a coloring book kite that I traced and cut out of the designer paper, then punched the ribbon border punch and lined the sides, add some bakers’ twine for the string and the skinny taffeta ribbon for the tail.

I get many of my scrapbook ideas from magazines or the internet but I find that many are only single page layouts so I am always converting and stretching and adding a second page to mine.  This was one of my class pages during the last couple of months.

I hope you like it.  It just needs some pictures added to it now.

My 55 goal is slowly coming along – I talked to a couple more people today who plan to place orders soon.   As the orders get placed I’ll update the tracker on the side of my blog.  I hope to see it growing each day.  And then we can all celebrate at a Stampin’ Up! party in the fall.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about then check this post.  I’m so exited at the possibility of actually earning a Stampin’ Up! incentive trip.

Have a wonderful weekend!
