A Special Birthday Card

Elvis was in my Blog Page earlier this Michael...LOL.  My friend and neighbor, Ciara, whom I have scrapped a page for and published on this site, has a birthday today.  I had a thought and made this birthday card for her at the spare of the moment.  Since she has been a Wham/George Michael Fan since the 80's, and recently got to see him in concert, I knew that it would be fun to make a special birthday card with none other than George himself!

Since I had never done a tri-fold card before, and was a bit nervous just to tackle it full boar, I decided to check youtube for some tutorials.  Low and behold, a wonderful and informative tutorial by Scrap Happens...special thanks to you Nancy! Sucess!

ELVIS...Is in my blog page

It's been awhile hasn't it? I've been on again, off again, from baseball practice to baseball games until late in the evening, to making a couple of projects I can't quite reveal until after May for've been.....busy!

I am happy to announce that I have done a fun layout of none other than...Elvis Presley, (insert Elvis montage here)...My friend, Barbara, aka Allie, the lucky duck, got to meet Elvis Presley back in 1973.  Her husband at that time worked at the San Diego Sports Arena.  She got to not only see the concert, but she got to MEET HIM! 

She has had her personalized autograph stored in a tiny envelope.  It was her Father's business card that was used to get his autograph, so it's been put away and a tad bit faded.  But she wanted to show it off, (I would too!) in something really cool.  So here it is.  Gosh, she's so lucky!  Enjoy!
