A Little note from Nana

Hi everyone, welcome to Maddie & Nana's Place. This blog is for Maddie. She has been scrapbooking for almost a year. She wanted her own blog so that she could enter challenges just like her Nana. She is learning to do everything crafty by herself. Maddie has her own ideas, her own "stuff" including my old cuttlebug. My daughter has been scrapbooking for years and now her oldest loves it too. She wants to do her own computer input so please be patient. Nana spoils her and she has been playing on our PC for a while. She loves YouTube and only needs a little help with spelling. At least she will allow me to help, even if it's only to tell her how to do it. She always wants to do it herself. She mastered my ATG gun in no time..lol We hope to have fun together.

Friends Forever Birthday Card/DT Kona Kid Krafter's "Summer Challenge"

I made this card for my friend Hailey.  Her room is purple and blue so I made this card purple and blue.  These pictures are of us, the Disneyland picture is when we were little.  The camping one is from last summer.  Her birthday is tomorrow and I am going to it.  I hope she will like it and we are going to camp in her backyard.

Nana's note:  I guess Maddie is in Summer mode...LOL.  She liked the paper bag card she made as a GDT for Fairy Fun Friday's and decided to make a similar one for her BFF Hailey's Birthday so she could add the pics to it.  She remembered how to make the flowers all by herself.  She wanted me to cut out Lily Ladybug Digi from Pink Cat Studio for her do I did...hehehe I actually got to help her.

Pink Cat Studio is our sponsor for our 3rd Challenge at Kona Kid Krafter's.  Our challenge this time is to create something with a "Summer" theme.  We entered this darling creations into the following challenges:
