A Princess Is What You Were Meant To Be...

To think I almost sold this set without ever even using it! Well, thankfully I hadn't parted with it {yet} because I had to make a birthday card for a five year old who is VERY much a Princess. This was perfect for her!

And of course every princess must have a little sparkle in her life, so I piled on the stickles and glitter. This is probably the "sparkliest" (is that a word? :-) card I have ever made. Really not my style (if I even have one), but I can do sparkle when the need arises. I actually enjoyed making this card with all its sparkle. My son thought it was "cool," while my daughter said "oooooo, that's pretty mommy!". This coming from the child who deliberately touches every glittery thing in Michaels just so she can have "pretty hands." Ahhhhh, the little things...

We have been pretty busy around here the last week. I thought having one in preschool would make life slow down a bit, but that hasn't happened at all. But that's okay, I'd rather be running mad than bored out of my mind - we don't like to stay put around here :-)

Speaking of preschool... I have a few pictures to post from my son's first day. He was so cute! Now where are those pictures?...

Have a fabulous Monday! Thanks for stopping by!

Every princess does need the glitter! I love that your daughter touches the glittery things so she will have pretty hands! I will smile each time I go to Michaels and see the glittery things! I can't wait to see your first day of school pics! I hope he is enjoying it!
