Monday...and other stuff

Another Monday!  Slept in late this morning so that I can work tonight...just one night of work this week...yay!  Tomorrow night is Tyler's Athletic Banquet.  He should get recognized for Honorable Mention Wide Receiver in our district...should be fun and great photo-op time :)
I've been perusing the blog-o-sphere this morning; checking out friend's and manufacture's blogs.  My friend, Yvonne is a Design Team member over at Inspired to Scrap...they're hosting a crop this week!  I'm off to check it out after leaving here.  It's been awhile since I've done a crop and I'm looking forward to the inspiration and chat ♥
Oh my goodness!  In my perusing I found a paper line that I just have to have!  I love the vintage-inspired-ness of Hometown Summer by Collage Press Studio at Pink Paislee.
 Isn't it the cutest?!?! Perfect for a summer scrapbook customer's love vintage-y albums and I love making them.  My favorite color right now: turquoise/aqua.  Some people call turquoise, aqua and others call aqua, turquoise, know-what-I mean? ;)  It just says H-A-P-P-Y to me!

I added a cute Birthday Party set to The Red Robin yesterday.  I used an older paper line from SEI...Penelope's Potpourri...remember it? You may have to reach way back in your memory LOL  I had to dig waaay back in my bin to find it *blush*  I also used the Ruffled Crepe Trim that I have for sale at TRR.  Here's a peek at the hat (cake topper)
There are six honeycomb cupcake toppers also in the set :)
Okay, I'm outta here for now!  Have a fab Monday!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
