I LOVE my kit! I can grab it and go and have everything to make a card at my fingertips so when I'm waiting in carpool or at the doctors office or any of the countless other places I have to wait around for hours, I can be productive instead of killing time checking FaceBook. I even bring along my ShinHan markers to color my stamped images.

Calypso Summer



 CALYPSO

It's a Flamingo Party and what better paper to use to save my granddaughters photos than Close to My Heart's Calypso Workshop my Way paper packet. All those flamingos were perfect for this project. After all, if you are going to have a huge flamingo float you have to use a few flamingos to record the moments. I think this vibrant paper shouts out Summer Fun!
 


I cut out the mermaid using the Cricut cartridge, Life's a Beach and instead of using the mermaid cut, I decided to use the relief instead and then backed it with pink.
