Welcome to the MemoryWorks 10th Birthday Blog Hop!  If you are just joining us...go back and start HERE.  If you get lost along the way, there is a blog hop map at the end of this post :)
This 10th birthday thing couldn't have come at a better time for me...as I am celebrating my twin girls 10th birthday on the 30th of this month :) So I am sharing some things that I have made celebrating their 10th birthday.


This first project is an invite to the girls' birthday weekend using the Simple Stories Fab{U}lous collection:

I used one of the 4x6 cards from the set, and used letter stickers to add the info....and the little phone sticker was perfect for an invite, I thought :)  I dressed it up by matting it with brown embossed/punched cardstock. It will fit nicely in a 5x7 envelope.


The rest of the projects I have made with the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection: 


Sweet Dreamy Smile
These are my girls' 10 year photos, I thought  they looked great with the colors of this paper :) I LOVE the chipboard banners that come in this collection...they make for a quick, easy and adorable title.

Smile Pretty

This layout is going to be for photos from the girls birthday outing...they are going to see the movie "Brave" with 2 of their little friends.


Happy Birthday

You can't have a birthday celebration without a birthday card!  So easy...I just used a big embellishment sticker for the focal point, and one of the tags for the sentiment, and to kind of 'ground' everything.


Envelope box
I make this box anytime I have created a card that is a bit too bulky for a regular envelope. You can see how  I made it HERE if you like.  

That's it!  I hope you have enjoyed my projects...now, you are off to Cathie's blog!
