Alphabet Circus Train - BLOG CANDY



I spent some time loading photos on to my computer this evening. Many of them were of my grandsons, go figure! I wrestle with the temptation to share every 'cute' photo of them because, well you know, they're all cute!

So instead, I thought I would post these two projects I made which were inspired by them. There are at least 3 layers in this dimensional card.
I used K&Company's 'Actopus to Zelephant' Designer Mat Pad and Self-Adhesive Borders and let my imagination do the rest. I think they are great cards for kids and for 'kids at heart'.

Are you one of those 'kids'? Leave a comment and let me know what keeps you young and on Friday July 3rd, I will put all your names in a hat and draw a winner. The winner will receive a signed version of one of these cards complete with coordinating envelope...and knowing me, there will be a little something extra, too!

these are gorgeous Julie, and I love those alphabet borders :)

I think my job keeps me young - teaching young children with special needs requires spending time having fun everyday :)

Hello Julie, I'm new to blogging and I'm glad I found your site. Love both cards.

What keeps me young is "playing" and discovering new crafting techniques.

You can be sure I'll be a regular visitor to your site.
