Oh Those BIG Hair Days

Ahhh, to be a child of the 80's
Guess jeans, Swatch watches,OP t-shirts, penny loafers and
My kids found this picture of me, taken when I was 18.

Now, was that some hair, or was THAT some hair?  I have riotous curly hair
and this particular day it happened to fix just perfectly :)  Julia Roberts had nothing on me hahaha!
I did this layout for my sponsored challenge over at the My Scrapbook Nook
The challenge is entitled "The Red Carpet"
and the only instructions are to use shades of red on a layout or card.
I used the April Nook Kit featuring STORYTELLER by Crate Paper.
The Maya Road chip frame also came in the kit, and I spritzed it with Mister Huey's
REAL RED...perfectly matches these papers.  For the flowers I used the
I Top Punch from Imaginisce and the Trio flower punch from EK Success.
You still have plenty of time to come over and play along with us!
Tomorrow I'm up at Imaginisce for our Canvas Corp. Blog Hop.
I have some really fun stuff to share with you.
Also tomorrow is the Monday EAD Blog Hop.
Lots to do...lots to see!
Have a blessed Sunday

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

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…
