We are still partying at YNS!

We have been partying all month long because it is YNS's 6th Birthday!
 Today for our Feature Day we are using the theme Celebrate!
 For this card I cut out acetate, sewed it (I know its a little crooked!), filled it with sequins and added these adorable images (which I coloured with Copics) from the Party Animals set! These awesome images also have a matching die set!

 Check out the YNS Blog and see what all the other DT members have made!
And remember.....comment on the YNS Blog for a chance to WIN a stamp set of your choice!!

Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine!

I was lucky this month to be published in Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine! This layout features my daughters disgusting feet from her first year at camp! They were SO bad that my husband had to carry her up to the bathtub because I didn't want her stepping on the carpet!
It took a LOT of scrubbing but eventually they went back to normal!

Today is Augusts' Design Team Dare Day at Your Next Stamp!
We have all been challenged to make a SHAKER card for you!
I was very excited to make one of these because I really haven't made too many

With the amazing new releases from the weekend it was easy to pick a stamp set for this card- and I chose Party Animals! It is easily one of my favourites from this release and I will be using it a lot!
Here is my shaker card for the challenge:
