Kindergarten Scrapbook Page

My daughter just finished fifth grade and for us that means on to middle school.  I’m trying to catch up on her scrapbook this summer, so far I’ve almost completed Kindergarten.  🙂  This is not a completely Stampin’ Up! project, I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the title (I love my Cameo).  The designer series paper is retired from Sale-a-bration, as well as retired Watermelon Wonder ink for some of the hot air balloons.

OnStage Local: Minneapolis Swaps

I love swapping, well except for the creating a ton of one card.  Really, I love getting lots of cards not designed by me using stamp sets I don’t own with a style I don’t have.  Love it!

This is the card I used for my swap and you can see all about it on this post.  As a bonus, my family won’t be all getting the same card for their birthdays.  🙂

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! Cool Treats

This was my favorite swap and it’s not a card.  I love that she went through the effort to do all of these charms.  I think I’ll be attaching this to my purse.  🙂
