My birthday project for the blog hop is a fun way for my beautiful daughter Ashley to organize the photos from her 21st birthday trip we took to Key West Florida last month - what a blast we had!

The inspiration for this mini came from Kathy Orta's Paper Phenomenom - Kathy is one talented lady!!! 

Here's a photo of my take on Kathy's mini:
I haven't embellished it or added photos yet because I want to see which photos Ashley wants to include. 

I used papers from Paper Pizazz "Retro Sarapapers" for the inside pages, Glimmer papers for the title letters ("Happy Birthday"), and the cardstock used on the tags and box are ProvoCraft Accentials. Cricut cartridges used were Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, Alphalicious, and Forever Young (these cuts are not pictured) to cut some fun phrases that Ashley can add to the appropriate photos. 

Here's additional views of the mini:

I will post more pictures after the mini is completed with the embellishments and bling by next weekend. I hope you can stop by again to see the completed project :)

I hope you like my project & will become a follower of my blog.

Fabulous & 50 Blog Hop

I've been MIA for almost a year (YIKES) but that doesn't mean I haven't been crafting :) 

My Cricut Demo Army friend Angie is celebrating her 50th Birthday on Saturday, February 26th with a "Fabulous & 50 Blog Hop" and I'm honored to be one of the 12 blogs in the hop. I hope you stop by and check out the crafty birthday projects these talented ladies have created.

Have a creative day,
