When you're feeling girly...

Just go with it!

Swirl your skirt, jump for joy, play some hop-scotch.... OR make a card!
And while you're at it... Use THIS sketch!

And play along with JUST US GIRLS! Yipeeeee!

And, our darling {and OH, so talented} guest designer, for April, Teresa Kline!!!

We're SOOOOO excited to have her join us this month! Welcome, Teresa!

I can't stop the "girl love" as my wee-babe prepares to add an extra digit
into her number... {*Sob!*} So, I'm channeling my adoration into card craft.
In honor of the realness of my need for cute "girl cards" right now,
I salvaged some darling pink denim from an actual pair of her, adorable,
toddler jeans. {I'd show you a picture, but I've scrapped these babies out,
for creative parts, so many times, all that's really left in tact is the lil' pockets!
{Eeeeek!} What's a mommy of A TEN YEAR OLD supposed to do?

Yep, CRAFT something fun and ADORABLE!

Meanwhile, if you're shopping for a little inspiration and a WHOLE lotta fun...
I truly, truly hope you'll join us for a some super, crafty inspo!
