My first badge mini album

I joined a swap for mini albums made with the badge sleeves that you would use for name tags. My partner wanted one for camping and this is what I came up with for her.
I left the sign empty so that she could add any name that she wanted on it

Baby shower cards

My SIL asked me to make the invitations to her baby shower so I made a couple different ones for her to chose from. I tried to keep them pretty simple because she wants around a 100 of them made.
I made the card and the duck using Wild Cards and embossed the circle with the Spots & Dots embossing folder

I used the lion from the SU set Fox & Friends and I used the TH Burlap embossing folder to emboss the kraft paper

I have had these pics for 10+ years and I finally got them scrapped. The pattern paper is from Echo Park, the font is from Simply Sweet and the crab and splash is from Create a Critter. I used one of the maps from Page Maps 2 to put this LO together.
