Trees, Penguins Oh My!

Guess what I have been scrapping with? The Apron Strings Smaller than a Breadbox kit! Full of Jillibean Soup, October Afternoon, and Fancy Pants. Loved the penguins, polka dots and fun happy colors in this one! I was able to make Christmas layouts, an Easter layout, birthday cards, a teacher gift, and valentine cards! Now that is some kind of versatility in a kit!
Over the next week I will be sharing what I made with the kit - hopefully one or two things a day - if all the stars line up and the Earth stays balanced - haha!
First a Christmas layout - the hunt for the perfect tree. Not one where all the needles fall off....
The Hunt
And the next - a birthday card! These penguins are the cutest! After dinner and coffee with my girlfriends on Monday I came home to watch the Bachelor (yes I am a diehard fan) and cut out penguins. You will be seeing these fun little penguins on cards - everything from this birthday card to a thank you card and Valentines too!
I used a gold Happy Birthday rub on on the tree turned pennant flag and small flag underneath. Inside reads "Hope Your Day Is Cool!" I used a sketch from the sketch*a*thon at Scrapfriendzy. The sweet two year old who received it today loved the birds on the card - so I consider this card a success!
