Artbooking in August #2

Welcome to Week #2 of Artbooking in August! Are you ready to get creative? Let 36 Close To My Heart Consultants inspire you this month! This is a circular blog hop, so if you get lost along the way, please visit Adeline Brill's site here, and you're sure to get back on track!

Today just happens to be my birthday, so this hop is like a birthday present to me! I've had a pretty fantastic weekend filled with fun adventures and rare quality family time. One of my favorite things about the weekend was getting to finally meet a consultant friend that I've only ever talked with on the phone and through e-mail/Facebook. She is such a treasure to have for a friend. On top of that, I even received extra surprises of not one, but 3 birthday cakes! Wow, huh? If you were here, I'd share with you. Really, you'd be doing me a favor! LOL 

Okay, enough birthday chatter! You surely didn't come here for that! :)

If you arrived here from Michelle's blog, you're on the right path. Today's cards were inspired by Pinterest. Love that site!
