Exploring Forever Young


Hello Everyone,
Today I went to Fort Polk La to see my daughter. I took the day off and drove the 3 hrs for lunch and another 3 back. It was fun, but made me wish for more time with her. Say a prayer for her…she starts a new job on post, Friday. If you know Fort Polk and the surrounding areas you know jobs are in short supply. Small country living with one road as the main shopping area, & post shopping is atrocious. We were a military family and stationed in Fort Polk for a year. Thankfully his brigade moved to Fort Hood & I loved it there. Unfortunately for my daughter her husband’s next duty station isn’t coming up any time soon. As much as she despises Fort Polk I am happy she is close by.
This week I’m exploring my new Forever Young cartridge. My New Year resolution was to use my carts more. Exploring each cartridge is so much fun, why did I wait so long?
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stamping Vacation: Clean and Simple - Use Flowers (on dress & purse)
Stamping Vacation:Sew Beads on Creation - beads sewn on her bracelet.
Cooking with The Cricut Double Take recipe. 2 pcs of card stock (rose colored & white) , 2 patterned paper same paper used on dress & background, @ embellishments faux ribbon, raised quote.
Card recipe:
White card stock from Punch out pack Vintage Rose by Colorbök
Rose colored card stock from Pink Armadillo by the Paper Studio
Pattern paper by K & C Company called Red Antique Floral Flat Paper
Embellishments faux ribbon & quote from Punch out pack Vintage Rose by Colorbök

Thanks for Stopping by

Roxx,
Thank you so much for the comment on my blog, I am now a follower of yours. You had asked about my blog layout, I actually paid someone to do it for me. On the right side of my blog, you willl see a pink box with "The posh box" in it, that is who designed it for me
Hugs
