May the Force be With You

It's the start of a new week and that's means ....

If you've come by way of the
you are in the right place to get started.

If not, it's just one stop back to get on the right
track to be eligible for this week's prize.

Today is my oldest grandson CJ's 9th birthday and he
loves Legos & Star Wars, so imagine how excited I got
when I learned that EAD has a set created for just such an occasion!

Sunday was CJ's party and he seemed quite happy to get a handmade card from
Mema Julie.
He loves to make art himself and is such a creative guy.

The paper is from Echo Park's This & That collection called 'Charming'.
I used two different designs for my background and punched both with
the Radiant Circles punch from EK Success.
I used Lemondrop baker's twine from The Twinery for the seam
and layered the 'Galaxy Warriors' & 'Birthday Sentiments' Stickerz 

Here are the sets I used today...

Galaxy Warriors

Birthday Sentiments

Before I send you on your way, I'd like to share a few 
of the party photos with you.

CJ loves to roller skate, so we spent the afternoon at Skateland.

One of the many, MANY Lego Star Wars sets he has now added
to his collection.

Saving the best....for last!

So glad you came by today.
I'd love to see YOU win our prize this week, so make
sure you hop along, leave a comment on each designer's blog
and enjoy!
