HAPPY BIRTHDAY 10 Minute Craft Dash!!!

WHEW!  What a CRAZY few weeks it's been!  Running around like mad, but SO glad, at the very last minute, I was able to participate in the big birthday extravaganza over at the 10 minute Craft Dash!

So, this time around, we are to use a birthday theme, and keep it under 10 minutes... easy, right?  One would think...I started one card, and after getting started, there was NO WAY I was going to complete the card in less than 10 minutes, and then realized I totally messed it up - so off to the garbage that one went, lol.  BUT -- I did get to make this little ditty for the dash --

It was close, but I made it!

Can't wait to get to REALLY go through the entries, I always love to see what everyone can do in 10 minutes!!  So much fun.  Thank you Paulina for starting this challenge, it's my favorite!  Congratulations on your first year!!  Looking forward to the second!

Paper: Classic Kraft, Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, New Leaf, Pacific Point(SU!)

A Facelift!

I've LOVED my blog design for quite some time...but recently I've been getting the itch to switch things up a bit.  I wanted something a little cleaner, with a pop of color - and all of the social networking buttons, etc.  So, what do you think??  I found this great shop on Etsy - called Kreated by Kelsey - and she had some pre-made designs that fit my wants.  I didn't want to spend a ton on a facelift - and she was very reasonable!

I still have some more tweaking to do, but having some friends over for dinner tonight - so it will be over the next few days I'm sure.  I would love to know your thoughts -- do you like the new look?
