This cute little frog is a Marjorie Ann Designs file. Isn't she cute. I happened to have one lone frog left over from a layout I did on the fourth of July from pictures from a couple years ago. I had intended to put her on a card or something, but never did. While I was putting together this quick layout, I snagged her and put her on. I think she looks like she was meant to be here. There are so many cute designers out there and she is one of my favorites. Always such cute files. The flower was jut a basic shape I found somewhere but it looks cute on the top!

What a wonderful way to spend the day. We grabbed Grandma and Grandpa and drove to see the Star Valley Temple openhouse. It rained on the way there and home, but was just a little overcast while we were there. So fun to see the stain glass picture of Christ that they bought from another church and installed in our temple. It was absolutely stunning. Wish I had a picture of that, but these will have to do. Families are forever! So grateful for mine!

Ok...so I ordered a bunch of the cheap embossing folders from China and I have to say, I love them. They do a nice job and this one was only about $1.30. It took a while to arrive, but it is so pretty. I ordered like 15 of them so I just had to play with a couple since they just arrived. Love how it looks on this card. Hope you can see it. The disadvantage of using my phone versus my camera but look close. The white is embossed with the prettiest rose folder. I think this one is my favorite out of all of them I ordered! I love it!

So I have never done an explosion box but they had the cutest birthday set over at Dreaming Tree that I just had to have! One of files in the set was an explosion box. Can I say, oh my goodness! How absolutely fun and easy is this!!!! I have a retreat coming up soon so I decided this was a good time to try to make this. I hope she likes it. I think I'll fill it with some kind of treats....chocolate maybe? LOL. Everyone loves chocolate right? I think I'll make one of these for my daughter and put a gift card in it. What teenager doesn't like money? Now I need to make the cupcake gift box. It is adorable also. If it's as easy to work with as this file, I'm sold! I love the balloons and party hat! Doesn't this just scream party and have fun! I LOVE it!

With summer FINALLY arriving, I couldn't resist these cut little ants and watermelon because doesn't summer time scream watermelon? Love these little guys! Miss Kate's Cuttables files. Super cute. Not the best photo but I'm to lazy to go get my good camera so my phone will have to do! LOL.
