My Girls Have My Talent ...

Back in July my two oldest granddaughters, Courtney (15) and Megan (13) came to visit for a week. It has been an annual event for about 5 years now. They love to scrapbook and play with all my wonderful Stampin' Up! supplies. One day when they were downstairs in my stampin' room they looked through my basket of card samples. They copied some but also designed some of their own. It made me feel proud that they have my "crafting" talent.

I was so excited I wanted to share their creations with all of you. What do you think?

I love what Megan did with a tri-fold card I made over a year ago. She updated it with the fun Island Oasis DSP. She loved the colors and I think it turned out great.

Here is the card opened up.

I think Courtney could easily be an artist. She is very talented. It runs in my family -- my father carved animals/birds out of wood; my one brother makes custom-made furniture, my other brother went to cooking school and makes beautiful cheesecakes (he also built most of his house), my sister designs flower arrangements and decorations for weddings and, of course, I love my paper-crafting. So she definitely got it from my side of the family.

Well, thanks for stopping by. I hope to have my August stamp-a-stack cards posted before I leave on vacation on Saturday -- but you never know!!
