My Co-Worker Belinda!

What can I say about Belinda??  She is full of life...has a great sense of humor...such a hard worker and most of all a great friend.  She recently celebrated her 60th Birthday.  Her 3 daughters planned a great party for her.  Her oldest daughter emailed me a few pictures of her with her Mom and I started creating. This is her gift. 

The retired Ariana Paper Pack was one of my favorites and the colors matched so well with her colors at home. The roses were cut from the Cricut and inked with matching colors.  One thing I love about Close To My Heart paper packs is that every paper matches perfectly together.  Another plus is on the very top of the patterned papers, there is an added sentiment that you can use with your projects. 
Supplies Used are all CTMH:
Ariana Paper Pack & Complements (Retired)
Artbooking Cartridge (frame cut out)
Lot's of love was packed into this little gift.  I hope she will enjoy it for a long time.

Thanks for stopping by the Playground today.  Hope it's been a great day for you!
