Celebratory Weekend

We had a fabulous weekend in Disney World! Thanks to Patrick who was honored as a Pop Warner All American Scholar at the banquet held there on 5/23/09. Way to go Patrick!!!

It was a high-toned and fancy to do held at the Coronado Springs Resort. We stayed at Disney's Yacht Club and despite some severe and frequent thunderstorms and torrential downpours, we managed to have a blast!

Did I mention that it was a Star Wars Weekend? Oh what fun!

The Pitch

At his game this weekend, Patrick got to do some pitching. He was amazing! You could see that he felt the weight of the responsibility as he would get in his zone, breathe deep, drop his shoulders back and then go for the wind-up. He did great for his debut! He really enjoyed it too.

I loved snapping photos of him. He makes the most endearing faces as he follows through with each pitch. And the intensity in his eyes, just awesome!

I spent some time yesterday creating this. I had a blast! This totally awesome digi kit was released Friday by Krista Sahlin (Sahlin Studios). She did a fabulous job of creating tons of papers and embellishments. The kit is bursting with great stuff. And not just for Disney pages - but fitting for all sorts of fun! You can snag it too, over at ScrapMatters

These photos are from trips we took to Disney in 2004 and 2007. We have so many great memories of our vacations there. And we are headed there again this year! Always so much to do and see and be a part of! For all of us kids!!!

May Flowers!

I had so much fun making these pocket cards! They were quick and easy. What a great way to use up a stash of flowers too! I wanted to make a flowery card for Mother's Day and saw these on Split Coast Stampers. Then I found these great instructions by Stephanie Luman ... Thanks for sharing them!

The top photo (above) shows the flower pots with the card tucked in, and the bottom photo shows the insert card pulled out of the flower pots. These will be great as teacher thank-yous, get-well, just because, .... any time you want to send a "blooming" wish to some one you care about!

For the flower pots, I used Bazzill Burning Ember cardstock. I modified mine a bit. I embossed the pots with the Cuttlebug Textile Textures embossing folder. I also increased the length of the insert card to allow me to add more flowers!! Can never have enough flowers, huh?

I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch on the lip of the pot and added an additional coordinating color card stock also edged punched to add a little somthing extra to the flower pot.

You could add tags to hang from the ribbon, or maybe a friendly ladybug or butterfly among the blooms!

Hope this inspires you to try making these elegant, but easy to make cards!

Hooray! It's May!!
