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.

Happy Birthday Lexi

I made this card for my friend Lexi.  I am going to go to her birthday party soon.  The best part about going to her birthday is being with my friends

I used a mom's cupcake digi and paper from my nanas stash.  I wanted to make an easel card.  I made my own flowers.  and added stickles to make it sparkle.  I used the cuttlebug to emboss.  And my nanas nesties.  thanks  for looking maddie.

Nanas Note:  Yippee Maddie's back to doing some of her own posts!  Maddie did a great job with her card.  She did every bit of it by herself.  This is Maddie's first card as Junior DT for One Stitch At A Time.  She is so excited to be part of the Junior Design Team!
