We have MANY talented Designers, Design Team Members and professional artists in our hop today, and we may make many postings a day!)
Oh, the dilemma of it all, what to get a talented gal such as Keira who is going to be 10 for her birthday!!!!! I know what, let's have a blog hop for her .....
Keira has sooo many talents and likes such as:
she will be going in the 5th grade, loves dogs and cats, loves to garden, is a competitive gymnast, but more importantly, she is the best crafting partner I could ever have! At 9, she can use a cricut independently, and with SCAL and CCR. She likes to paper piece and scrapbook and loves making cards for everyone~and everything!!!! Hallmark may not have a card for “Sorry my Golden Retriever ate your shoe at my sleepover” but Keira sure does! Keira crafts along side me, working on her own projects, and with helping me with mine. She even helps me "noodle" out those "now what else does this need?" Now, bear in mind that Keira is not a "kid" crafter so to speak but her skills go way beyond pipe cleaners and pom poms!
We have a talented group of crafters to help Keira celebrate her birthday and know she will be hopping along as part of her "surprise" .....

If you're just visiting me today, I'm thrilled but wouldn't want you to miss a single birthday wish to this special 10 year old!!!! The hop begins with Lisa. If you have arrived from
then you are most definitely following the cake crumbs and the
birthday banners and streamers!!!
For my card for Keira, I felt I owed it to her to, for once, do what I always tell her to do…step out of her comfort zone. I do muted, vintage, floral styles. I don’t do cute, I don’t do colorful. So, I knew I must do cute and colorful. I found the perfect digi stamp to use, courtesy of Scrapbook Stamp Society. She was colored, cut and laminated. I found a “groovy” font and typed my sentiment and added a color gradient. I sprayed with shimmer mist. I adhered the girl and sentiment to the card I had prepared with 3-d squares. I prepared the card as a 6”x6” card base with a glittery peace sign print layered. This pattern came to me courtesy of an RAK, but fit perfectly. I added coordinating ribbon. I hope Keira likes my card for her birthday bash, and appreciates my attempt to step out of the box. Your comfort zone is where you are, adventure is where you are not. Go there.
