Hello Friends and Welcome to my blog! :)

Happy Birthday Josh and I love you!! :) 

Welcome to Charlie Brown and the Gang Blog Hop. Charlie Brown and his gang are out to play with us today whether it be baseball, holding the football or just hangin' out!!!! Don't forget that Snoopy has to get the Red Baron and not fall behind the enemy lines. Also, you may want to stop off at Lucy's booth to have a second opinion!!!

There are so many characters to depict here and we all have our favorites!!!! With this in mind, we will be setting up scenes whether it be a lay-out, card, decorative piece but rest assured, you will be seeing Charles Schultz characters being showcased!!!!!

Now, if you just happened to be visiting me, I'm thrilled and glad to show you my project BUT I would love for you to start at the beginning of our story and that is with Kari at http://purplefuntastickcreations.blogspot.com/.  Hehehe that is me!! so you are starting off well... you are on the correct base on the baseball field!!!

  • Shannon Leffew Keith at  http://www.etsy.com/shop/shannleffew2?ref=si_shop

    She will be giving away some beautiful flowers!! :)

    Here is my project and I made my son a special card and journal...he was looking at all the journals I been making for the kids I was making them for the children's hospital and sick kids at church and was hinting that he really liked them...so I got the hint and he got his own journal to doodle in even at 18!! hehe....recipe below both pics...hope you enjoy! :)

The card was made with a blue cardstock that was in my stash and I made it A2 and snipped the corners with my corner rounder...then I did the same with the background with the yellow printed paper also from my stash and then I printed off a Snoopy color page and printed it to size to fit the card and then I used my chalk blue for the cloudy color in background and then everything else was done with my water color pencils and blender...then I taped it to the printed paper then I used my smash tape I had and pleated it across Snoopy's doghouse and then I stamped "Birthday Wishes: and cut it out and taped it to that ribbon and voila!

The Journal was pretty simple...used a Composition book for $1 and then printed off another coloring page (my son just loves Snoopy and the Red Baron!) and then I used my water color pencils and blender on that and use the blue chalk for the background to make it a sky and then I modge podge it to the notebook cover and used my shimmer Modge Podge for fun and then I stamped all of the letters for Josh's name and then cut it out and glued it down and voila! :)

Snoopy sure is fun to play with....hope you have fun being with him as well...don't forget the bloggy love and birthday wishes for Josh !

hey Keri, Wish your son a very happy birthday from my side. May GOD grants his all wishes which he dreamt and get succes in all coming years. What could be the best gift to get a handmade card from a loving mother. It surely must have been a great feeling.
