Last night I was web surfing and checking out other crafting blogs...so I went by my friend Tina's blog and saw the absolutely cutest birthday card idea. Well I've been trying to do some family birthday cards for the last three months! I've just been stumped on what to do for teenagers, and her post last night http://thecrazystamplady.blogspot.com/2011/03/cupcake-case-copy-and-share-everything.html was my answer. Here is my version of her CASE (Copy and Share Everything) card.

I have so thoroughly enjoyed becoming a grandma! My grandchildren delight me in so many ways and at the end of the day, I get to send them home to their parents! However, I am thoroughly enthralled with my granddaughter. I have raised and lived with men all of my married life. My husband's daughter lived mostly with her mother, so needless to say...I'm used to being around men most of the time! I love having a granddaughter...I get to buy her girly clothes, and jewelry boxes, and baby dolls. Better yet, I get to make her a scrapbook with lots of girly things, flowers, and pink and purple papers, and flowers and cute little sayings about girls. Madison Claire will be three here in another week and I have been working on her baby album for the last three years...or maybe I should say not working on it. First I needed pictures from her mom and dad, then we moved...life! I have done a few pages and below are a couple of pages that I love. Madison or Maddy as we call her has a personality all her own and her mommy and daddy have done a wonderful job capturing those expressions, and I wanted to reflect that in a set of pages for her. Here are The Many Faces of Madison Claire.

My first attempt was a little plain, because I wanted to practice with
paper that I didn’t really care if I messed up. If I messed up then
I’d just rip it off and start over. It actually turned out nicely.

Hi there, welcome to Daydreams and Other Paper Stories. I have watched my friends share their craft projects through their own personal blogs and have decided to join the crowd. Hopefully someone out there will find something useful, fun, new, or unique when they visit these pages. Stay tuned!
