Summer love....

We've finally been able to get out and enjoy the weather lately, took the girls swimming the past few days and it's been so nice to get out and get some sun! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders now that all my projects for CHA are done and shipped off! Phew, now I can enjoy the rest of the summer! But oh how I wish I could go and see everyone's projects and meet everyone at CHA..I'm hoping I can go someday soon. I'd love to meet all you peeps out there! So anyway...it felt weird scrapping Christmas items for this, but fun at the same time. Here are some things I made for Melissa Frances with their new papers, tickets and resin pieces! Melissa Frances is having a blog giveaway all this week, so be sure to check it out.
I believe card:
This is a wooden frame I found at a discount store, covered it with paper, added a resin frame (I am so addicted to these!!!), added a sticker inside the frame, a chipboard tree and some craft store berries, moss, etc.

This is my little angel, Kati eating snow last winter! tee hee


And this is a 4" x 7" box that comes with a mini accordian album inside. I covered the box with papers, chalked the edges with brown chalk and added glittery chipboard letters with more craft store goodies on top and another resin frame.

Thank you all so much for voting in the Paper Crafts' Card Idol contest (see post below)!! I can't believe what supporters I have out there, you are all so sweet! I appreciate your nice comments you have left me and for coming out and supporting me. I believe today is the last day to vote for this round, and then tomorrow we should be finding out who moves onto the next round. Voting will start again next Monday (if I make it! ha)

One more thing: if you haven't seen my newest card kit called Summer Love...please stop in and check it out at Create My Keepsake! The papers are 12x12 so they are perfect for your summer layouts as well if you are not so much a card maker. LOVE the fun patterns and goodies in this kit! Instructions for 4 cards are included with photos. Check out the CMK blog for photos of all the cards I made for it.

Enjoy your day today! ~Danielle~

Dani, your work is just breathtaking........I am your NO.1 fan. I simply luv to pop in and see what you have created and its funny if when I see a paticular card I think "gee that must be Dani's" and sure enough it is.
You have the most beautiful style of work I've seen.
Such an inspiration.
