More "This is Your Life"...

Today I continue my walk down memory lane as I reflect on the past 1000 posts on my little blog.  I have six more projects to share with you today...

This was a card I made for a friend's Tween daughter's birthday.  I love the glitter strips along the left side...made using Sticky Strip and different colours of glitter.  This was long before the days of Glimmer paper, which would have made this look SOOOO much easier!
Speaking of Tweens, this one was designed with a Tween boy in mind.  I love the use of colour blocking behind the car image in place of colouring the image itself.  Gonna have to try this look again!
I chose this one because it uses the Bokeh background technique, which is SO trendy right now.  I made this card well over a year ago...I was a trendsetter...haha.  Truly, though, I love this look and the warm Fall colours are my favourites to work with.
Speaking of trends, there seems to be a bit of a birthday card trend happening today!  This one was an easel card I designed for a friend of my son's, who is a big Angry Birds fan.
This was my hubby's birthday card a couple of years ago.  He is a big music buff, so it was perfect for him.  He loved it and I loved that I was able to work bling into a Mancard!!
I chose this one because it is just pretty.  I love the different elements and the way they work together.  This project got me noticed by Karen Burniston, the designer of the die I used.  She actually emailed me to compliment my work!
Well, there you have another round of favourite projects from the last 4-1/2 years.  I'll be back tomorrow with the last batch to finish off 2014!
