Ok, first, before I show my project, I want to apologize! For those of you who regularly visit my blog, you will see I haven't blogged in a while. Last Tuesday I was admitted to the hospital for pancreatitus caused by gallstones. I ended up staying in the hospital for 5 days and at the end had to have surgery to have my gallbladder removed (they said I had over 150 stones in there!). Not fun! It's been a rough week trying to get back to my normal routine of things here at home. I planned on having a big project for this hop, but unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances, that didn't happen. So I'm very sorry!
Now for my project:
For this project, I started to make a "Happy Birthday" paper bag album, but as you can see, I have finished the cover, but the rest just didn't get done in time! I used the Party Animal Pattern collection from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs for the turtle and the confetti & streamers. The paper I used is from Basic Grey's new line "Life of the Party." Since April likes Green, I tried to jam pack as much green into my project as I could and I thought the little turtle was the perfect finishing touch! And for those of you wanting to see the final finished product, I should have it completed and in my Etsy Shop by next week!
Hope you have a very Happy Birthday April!!! Thanks for letting me celebrate with you!
