What a Beautiful thing; the gift of You

It's Saturday! We are going to be busy beavers today helping set up and breakdown my mother-in-law's 70th birthday party - with a lot of celebrating inbetween. But before we go do all that, our puppies are having their very own photo shoot with our daughter who just happens to be a professional photographer. I want some puppy pics for the scrapbook before they get much bigger and I say, "Wish we had more pictures when they were tiny." They are growing so fast!

Hope you all have some good plans for today.

Here's another CAS (clean and simple) card made for a few challenges going on right now.

White card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Black 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
White 4" x 5 1/4"
Pattern paper from BoBunny "Head Over Heels"
Miss Kate Cuttables "Bird in Cage" (yesterday's freebie)
Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink used on paper torn edge
Stampin' Up "Gifts of Kindness" for sentiment

Thanks for stopping by today! :) Janis
