Surprise!

This year, my boyfriend's birthday was rather interesting. I had tried to set up a surprise party a month in advance with his family, friends and classmates. His birthday is the beginning of September so school had always prevented him from having a good time. Last May he graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City so I was determined to throw a big party!

I hadn't expected him to come down with two inner ear infections and a bad sinus infection though. Long story short, with the help of some very strong antibiotics, he was able to make his party.

For his card, I wanted to create an almost celestial feel to it so I turned to my Stardust paper pack from a DCWV. Let me just say that I found this in a sales bin at a Jo Ann's upstate for $6 bucks!!!



I SIMPLY ADORE IT.

Ever had a stack of paper so pretty you don't even want to use it? I have been very selective on the projects I've used them for. But I do adore my boyfriend so I decided to use the black and gold paper along with one of the $1 stamps I got from Michael's.



I've been a little busy lately and it doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. The countdown to December and the end of my last semester has already begun, but I am trying my hardest to get back into my craft room. My sanity depends on it.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
