Keira's Double Digit Crafting Birthday Bash

Keira's Double Digit Crafting Birthday Bash

Welcome To Keira’s Double-Digit Birthday Crafting Bash!

Oh, the dilemma of it all, what to get a talented gal such as Keira who is going to be 10 for her birthday!!!!! I know what, let's have a blog hop for her .....

Keira has sooo many talents and likes such as:

she will be going in the 5th grade, loves dogs and cats, loves to garden, is a competitive gymnast, but more importantly, she is the best crafting partner Lisa Woodward could have!  At 9, she can use a cricut independently, and with SCAL and CCR. She likes to paper piece and scrapbook and loves making cards for everyone~and everything!!!!  Hallmark may not have a card for “Sorry my Golden Retriever ate your shoe at my sleepover” but Keira sure does!  Keira crafts along side Lisa, working on her own projects, and with helping Lisa with hers.  Now, bear in mind that Keira is not a "kid" crafter so to speak but her skills go way beyond pipe cleaners and pom poms!

We have a talented group of crafters to help Keira celebrate her birthday and know she will be hopping along as part of her "surprise" .....

Our complete line-up is:
Day 1
1. Lisa W.~
2. Kimberly ~
3. Lynne ~
4. Miriam -
5. Christine ~
6. Rachelle~
7. Daisy-
8. Shawnee ~

11. Edwina ~
12. Kristy -
13. Maria -

If you're just visiting me today, I'm thrilled but wouldn't want you to miss a single birthday wish to this special 10 year old!!!! The hop begins with Lisa. If you have arrived from Sarah then you are most definitely following the cake crumbs and the birthday banners and streamers!!!

I decided to do a simple card to go along with some unused supplies from my stash. A girl has got to have her stash, right? We were told that one of Keira's favorite colors is pink. I had gotten the animal print paper at Micheal's a few months ago and hadn't to use it, so I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I decided to do one of those stand-up cards. I've been meaning to try my hand at one, so why not. Here's the final product. Sorry about the dark photos, I've relocated up to my dining room and the lighting is horrible!

I used Elegant Edges for the sentiment background (my new play thing) and Don Juan for the "10". Simple, easy, and FAB-U-LOUS!!
