Dino Birthday

 I do so love these little dinosaurs - they're just so cute.  I've used the sketch from this past week's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge and the colours - More Mustard, Bravo Burgundy, Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla are from The Paper Players

I stamped the little dinos onto the vertical Vanilla strip with Staz-On Black so that they wouldn't run with the blender pen.  I didn't really pay attention to their placement, so when I was going to put on the square focal piece, I realized that one of the heads would be covered - so I just cut it away so that it would overlap onto the matting.

Here are the next two pages of my anniversary book - I still have to wait two days before giving it to my husband.  I have, however, decided how I am going to package it and "give" it to him.
 The choir pictures range from going on our first Concordia Choir tour,  the Concordia Community Choir, the two church choirs we've sung in and a small church choral group.

I know I cased this page - at least parts of it from someone I saw on the MDS website.
Hope your weekend has been wonderful - thanks for stopping by for a visit.
