Birthday Week has Arrived!

As I have been mentioning, my family's birthdays are all within 5 days of each other. Today marks the official beginning of Birthday Week, as it is my Dad's Birthday!!! Happy Birthday DADDY! Tomorrow is my sisters (today's card is for her!), mine is on Friday and my Mom's is Saturday. Crazy, isn't it?!?

One of Ilana's favorite things is peace signs, so I knew I had to incorporate them somehow. I love how the peace sign fits perfectly in a 1 1/4 punch matted by a 1 3/8 punch further matted by the Stampin' Up Scallop Circle.

I also had fun paper piecing Bella's apron. It really is a lot easier then I thought, especially because I only pieced a simple cut out. I also outlined the pieced piece with my copics (RV11) to give it some added depth. Also the inside hand-peace-sign is from an old dry embossing template.

Well, I have to get back to my LSAT work, but make sure you check out LPS's newest design team members, Lynn Mercurio, Sarah Green and Bonnie Sharp. These ladies are super talented!!!
