One for Mom

Hello Hello
What's up? Who's on Spring Break this week? We had ours last week. I'm curious, are all of you busy on Spring Break or relaxing on Spring Break? 
We landed somewhere in between I think, hopefully I got enough in there for the girls to feel like they had a good time - not completely bored but not completely worn out. Now granted it wasn't Hawaii or Florida but ya know...we did get to the zoo. (lol)
Anyways...for today I had one more card to share, this one I made for my mother-in-law for her birthday. I did happen to use the Tim Holtz frameworks again and I gotta tell ya, I am really, really liking these dies.
Also real quick I wanted to share this tip that I stumbled across a few months back when I was in process with all of my Christmas minis. I have the Round Arch Large Punch by EK Tools and as I started punching my strip of paper I had unconsciously decided to keep the negative punched out pieces too and low-and-behold they made the perfect photo tuck in my toilet paper mini books. In the photo above, they make a great decorative element, framing the "Happy Birthday" sentiment above and below it. That's what reminded me of the photo tucks - there are so many different ways to use what we already have we just need to look beyond what the product was intended for and move outside of the box.
So that's all I have for today, wanted to keep it short & sweet! Hope you have fun crafting outside the box this week.
Remember on Friday I'll be sharing a vacation mini book that I did back in the summer of 2012, I think you may enjoy it so be on the look out for that. And as always, "Thanks"!
just B
