Paper Garden L.O. & Bella card

We have had 50 mph winds here since 11:30 today, and I feel like the wind. I have been rushing around from here to there, up and down, side to side. Oy! I have this burning desire to organize myself, my life, my work, my outlook. Perhaps it is Spring Cleaning? Perhaps I will have an upcoming post that will just be a brain dump. But for today, I present to you my weekend creations...

The scrapbook layout is from a gathering I did Friday night for a friend / coworker. There were only four of us, which made it easy to get some one-on-one time to show each participant how to get the various effects. This is CTMH's Gathering-on-the-Go, Create & Take project for April. All materials are CTMH.
Paper: Paper Garden B&T Duos
My Acrylix Stamps: Friendship Word Puzzle

The Bella card is my interpretation of Sketch #6 on My Paper World.

Very nice! I like the way you made a slide show instead of posting all the pics. I didn't recognize you in the LO, based on the little pic on your profile.
