I went through my cards and posts and reflected on the past year and pulled two cards that I created for the Papertrey Blog Hop on May 25 2011. See the original post HERE. I decided to put a Valentines spin on my new cards--I love pink.
The next two cards are my original cards from the May Blog Hop.
I chose Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst from Papertrey for my colour palette. Each layer is bumped up with foam dots--loving these lately.
When I was making this next card I had the flower with the Hibiscus Burst Flowers on the left (outside) of the card. It didn't look quite right and I started thinking that I had the colours wrong--Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst are very close. My 17 year old son is a very good artist and has a very keen eye for design. He was walking by and I asked him to look at my card and discussed that maybe the colours weren't right. He looked and was very quiet, then swapped the Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz flowers and then it just looked right! He said now it had radial perspective. Off he went, love that kid.

I can't forget what my daughter completed for geography Monday night. We are at the end of semester 1 and heading into exams. So stress levels are high, especially for her as this is her first run at exams. So her ISU was to create a trip across Canada. We have done this trip over two trips so she had a lot of personal input. A job well done.
