Happy birthday Karen! :)



Life is a party canvas

Today I'm joining some talented crafters in a virtual birthday party for my bloggy pal Karen Baker! Happy birthday Karen! :) [12x12 canvas created for LESSology Challenge #4: Wall Art.]


Karen loves nature so I think she would enjoy a little outdoor party! :)

It's all about me box

Of course there must be a present for the birthday girl! :)


I decorated a coaster box with a tri-fold insert so that Karen can create a mini album about herself. :)

I would love for you to stop by Karen's blog, The Bald Dragonfly, to wish her a happy birthday! :) If you would like to see what the others made for Karen, here's the complete list of participants!
18. Lynn Miller

Canvas supplies: Old book paper (Gauche Alchemy), gesso, paint, crackle paint, gel medium, texture paste, Crafter's Workshop woodgrain stencil, mini birdcage, faux leaves, moss, twine, copics, googly eye.

I don't think I've purely had a mini album ever, and certainly not one made for me! How awesome is that???!!!! Thank you so much for joining in on this party, you sure make a girl feel liked! I adore the project you did for Lessology. One of my favorite pictures of me and my oldest son is at the zoo, when he is just a wee one and is staring and pointing at a beautiful tall majestic giraffe. Thanks again, Yvonne, for making this day a dream come true.
