The hop starts with Laura (http://lauraleesdream.blogsot.com/). You won't want to miss a single calendar event not to mention the weddings, graduations, birthdays -- ok, you get the idea!!!! On to my projects...
JUNE 29TH ... CAMERA DAY
Rather than create a card with a camera in it, I decided to do one of my favorite things...and add a photo to my card projects. It adds a nice personal touch. I like to use photos on my thank-you cards. Below is a thank-you card I made for guests at my daughter's Princess bday party.
Then, I took a cute photo and a window stamp and some floral embellishments to make this simple card for my girl's grandparents. Grandparents LOVE photos...
For my son's school, I helped organize their Dance and Graduation. For those events, vendors and some parents donated free items as give-aways. I took a group photo of the students at their dance and used that to cover the Thank-You card.
Just adds a nice touch...
Did you know that June is Fruit and Veggie Month? ... I didn't....Summer time is my favorite time for produce, like melons and strawberries! I made this card previously, using paper that my daughter decorated with markers.
Ok, below is a card I made special for this hop, but it needs some help! To win a $15 Michael's gift card, leave me a comment with sentiment and embellishment ideas...
If Random.org, chooses you...I will finish the card using your idea! Thanks!
Have Fun...and continue hopping on to the next amazing Calendar girl...
