TGF MM - Casing Paula

Oh my...the weather has been in the high 90's for the past couple of days and we still have a few more days ahead of us before there are any cooler temps in the forecast. I can officialy say that summer is here!!!! I've been trying to stay cool by hanging out in my craft area in the basement and thought I'd participate in this week's TGF Mystery Monday challenge by making a card using Paula's inspirational card....just click here to take a look and join in too, the more the merrier!

I used Amelia from the O&A Summer Fun set that was released a few weeks ago on July 1st...isn't she the most adorable little girl?!! A few other things that I used: Graphic 45 paper, Copics, Nesties, a paper crimper, a misc. brad, ribbon, stick pins, and some dophin beads! LOL! That's right....I found those on the clearance rack at M's a couple of months ago and was saving them for the perfect little "something"!!

Just a little bit of happy news...I'm heading to CHA in Rosemont tomorrow and am meeting up with Jessica Diedrich...who is the TGF Coordinator, and the super-de-duper talented Jen Shults will be with her too!!! Eeeeeeeeee! E-X-C-I-T-I-N-G!!! I'll try to post pics when I get home tomorrow night!

If you're in this heat wave, stay cool...and as always thanks for stopping by!
