The paper on the smaller package was very time consuming. I spent a couple of hours just coloring, but the end result was well worth it. In the end it looked like I had bought it. The larger package was stamped with a cute stamp I got in a set from Michael's that says, "A Pirate's Life for Me". The matching card has a bit of the wrapping paper attached to draw all the pieces together. Also, I didn't have any red brads so I colored some silver ones with my red Copic marker and viola! now I had red shimmery ones. How cool is that?

Back to the craft as hand... I love when we are invited to something for a girl. I have so many ideas I never get to implement with three boys. I wanted to give it a try making my own wrapping paper and matching card. I love how this turned out. It was so much fun and not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.
For the project: white craft paper from Michael's; stamps, ink and paper all from SU!
I cut out one of the butterflies and popped it up in on some dimensionals.

A Bonus challenge from the queen of A Muse, Linda.
Linda chose to inspire us with a word, "Weekend". Our weekends tend to be a bit chaotic. It was always the running joke while my husband and I were dating that we had trouble staying in the county for a whole weekend. Now that we moved to Las Vegas, where seemingly the whole state is one county, we have broken our habit of traveling but not of keeping busy. We run from baseball games, to soccer games, Play dates and parties. But the one thing that seems to dominate a whole day in our weekend is shopping. With three young boys I don't like to shop by myself with them. They like to run in all different directions and are constantly asking me for random stuff. So I save up all the big running around for the weekend when my husband is home and we can tag team the kids. Things always tend to run smoother when there is someone else there watching your back.
