My birthday was last Thursday. My husband God Bless this man, decided to let me just order some
craft supplies I had been hinting at big time.
So he gave me a budget and away I went with the credit card in hand.

I have been wanting the Peachy Keen Critter faces. So I ordered the medium set on
June 7th at 10:30 A.M. I just got my order this afternoon.
What great service! Thank you for great products and a short span for
me to wait for my goodies!

OK so on to the project.
We were challenged to make a frame or alter a frame.

So I made a frame and titled it A Day at the Beach.
I am waiting for the pictures to come back of my two beautiful
girls on their first day at the ocean. They had never seen an Ocean before and had a blast!

So lets start with the frame.

The cuts are the stage fright background
the sizes are

all the papers were scraps I had running around
the shadow is from the same DCWV collection.

On layer 2 - I first kept layer one visible

Project Forty-eight Peachy Keen Challenge

Welcome to my project for today.
I haven't done a challenge in awhile and here your going to see two challenges back to back.
So for my first challenge is a Peachy Keen Challenge . I just love their stamps.
I only have their Everyday Character Face Assortment. I am so excited that I ordering their critter faces this week. So looking forward.
OK so the details for the project are under the picture. Personal stuff before the picture!

SO the card I made today is my daughter's older sisters 13th birthday.
Most of you know we adopted two beautiful little girls. They have an older sister who is not able to live with them. We do keep in contact as much as possible. SO their sister is turning 13 and everyone made a birthday card to send to her.

OK so the paper is
Bashful blue, Pink Pirouette and Vanilla Cream
The pattern papers are Stampin Up from last year.
The blue is DCWV

The ribbon is Stampin Up white satin ribbon

EDPD cut at 22.5
The face is peachy keen's face assortment the second to smallest size.
I used Stampin Up Chocolate Chip for the face.
I colored the eyes with a Uniball White Pen and some pink cheek chalk.

EDPD cut at 2.5
I cut the cake with the Pink Pirouette then colored the icing and plate with Copics Sketch V04
then I took Ice Stickles Grape Ice and went over the icing to give it that bling.

The Sign
The rectangle is Plantin Schoolbook and the sentiment is Mickey Font
I used my Gypsy for this trick.
on layer 1
I place the rectangle at the size I want
I then got to layer two (with layer one still visible)
I then add my sentiment where I want it on the rectangle

OK so I cut layer 1
when the gypsy asks to unload the mat or return to the design
**This will not work if you unload the mat
I then unscrew the cutting blade and place the pen cartridge of my cri-kits gel pens
Once the pen holder is in place I CUT layer 2
Make writing my own sentiments so easy!!

I just saw the Cricut is coming out with their own gel pen system. If you haven't seen Cri-Kits or Cricuts gel pens look into them they are great little tool.

Cricut Gel Pens

SO that is my project Thank you for stopping bye
