A Layout & Card to share...

I have a couple projects to share today using the My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline" Collection!  After National Scrapbook Day at Craft Warehouse, they had several kits left from their make-n-take that day in which the customers made mini albums.  It looked time consuming and I don't usually gravitate towards actually using my mini albums that I've made in the past so I had passed it up on NSD.  However, when they offered for us to make the album or take the kit to use at Scrapbook club last month, I was intrigued by the idea of taking those supplies to make a layout that I could actually enjoy in my full-sized albums!  As it turns out I had enough to make a layout and a card and it was SO MUCH fun!  :)

To start with I had the following supplies to work with:
(2) 6x6 double sided papers from My Mind's Eye's Miss Caroline collection
(3) 3x6 double sided papers from My Mind's Eye's Miss Caroline collection
(1) Sizzix Tim Holtz Rosette Diecut
(1) unfinished title "adore" from American Crafts new DIY Thickers
(1) piece of My Mind's Eye baker's twine
(4) Misc. Buttons

And here is the layout I came up with...

(I ended up altering my DIY Thickers with a yellow Copic Marker)

And this is a birthday card I made my Great Grandma with the leftover scraps...
