Emma is 1 - American Crafts 5th and Frolic

I've finally had a chance to dig into the new American Crafts 5th and Frolic...gorgeous designs, patterns and colors.  I was able to mix in some old Dear Lizzy with it (the Fair ribbon, the tag, the foam letters, and that brad is from the Sketchbook line)
 Love the gold accents with the stickers (the gold key is from the Remarks sticker book).  Used the stamp set to stamp on vellum.
 Added more texture on the top using the sewing machine to follow the lines of the design.
Time has gone by too fast...these photos were one week after we were home from China.  Our adoption in China, was about 2 weeks after her birthday.  So just one week, exactly, we celebrated her birthday with just close family and then, believe it or not...went out to each for Chinese (I wasn't too thrilled about that having eaten it for two weeks, but it was what we agreed on)

Pin It!
