Going to Disneyland

     My eldest granddaughter is going to celebrate her 21st birthday with a trip to Disneyland with friends.  I was working on her card last night when she stopped by.  We had dinner together and then retired to the craft room.  I had completely forgotten that this was half completed and in plain sight on top of the desk.  She commented on how I had used the dies to cut it, and began making suggestions on design and embellishment.

     Since the sentiment wasn't visible (I had quickly tucked it away under a pile of scraps), I just fell in with design talk, undertook a few of her suggestions (the flowers and brad centers), and set about finishing the card with her very much a part of it.  She did find another image I had already colored and asked if she could choose dies and embellishment elements to make it into a card.  Since that distracted her from what I was doing, I gave her free reign with that one and you'll see it posted to my blog when she gets it done.  After she was safely gone, I added the sentiment.  :-D

     For this one today, the image is from LeAnn's World 101.
