April 2015 PTI Blog Hop

This month the challenge is to use navy & pink- I seem to use nothing but lately!
My friend Cindy was sweet enough to add Graceful Greetings to her cart for me this month :)
I love this set so much- and used nearly all of the images the first time I opened it! yay!!!

I knew I wanted stripes so I dug through my paper & found dots & stripes from Echo Park to be just what I had in mind. That is a fun pack & not sure why I haven't used it all up before now!!
I love that a single stamp can make such a pretty statement!

I did add some metallic gold string- couldn't resist! I think these may still be standard mail rate!
The ink is SU! & Delicata gold. Really pretty together in person!

I am looking forward to seeing all the pretty inspiration!

That concludes my hop entries- but had to post some of the pics from Hadley's birthday- 
We had a nautical themed party (navy & pink!)- or I should say parties! We had a cousin sleepover followed by family party & the next weekend was friend sleepover! Six 10 yr old girls! 
Hadley told me today the reason nobody sleeps at a sleepover is because that's what the name says- you don't sleep until it's over. That's pretty accurate!
I sure love that sweet girl.

Now here I have to say that I am not a party planner. We don't do a lot of hosting at all that isn't family. That said, Hadley & I worked together to come up with some fun details! I also got to know my silhouette pretty well :D

Those pretzel sticks are pretty fun to make- and you can see my labels below are on PTI tag dies!

One of the activities was for the girls to create the canvases pictured below. Using my silhouette to create the stencil it went pretty smooth- even when there were 6 artists!
The anchor banner & Hadley's canvases will all be in her room- she is patiently waiting for me to paint the hunter green wall that was that color when we moved in.
I'm not going to admit how long ago that was!

If you made it through the party pics too- wow! :D


  1. Now why didn't I order that set? Fabulous cards and of course your birthday decorations are amazing (I'm not even in the running for birthday decoration prizes).

  2. Great card set! And that script is gorgeous.
    Happy 10th, Hadley, your mom is so talented!

  3. Wow! I'm counting your really sweet looking daughter's birthday party as a project for the Blog Hop - such a pretty theme. And your cards are simple and perfect. I like that you put the emphasis on the pink; that way the navy really pops.

  4. Lovely cards & super birthday party!

  5. Your cards are lovely - and your daughter is adorable (and funny - love her definition of a sleepover :-)) Cutiepie!

  6. A trio of lovely cards Jen. Great photos too. Carol x
