Happy Weekend Everyone! It is brrrrr cold here in VA and I'm NOT liking it one bit--blech! What happened to the 70 degrees---wahhhhh! I feel that winter chill in the air which means winter is soon to come--and you know I'm NOT a fan, lol! Today I'm off to the mall for the promised "homecoming dress" shopping trip I promised Alexa and she's bringing a friend. I hope she's able to find something quickly or we will progress into the pouting/whining stage "I can't find ANYTHING" or "it makes me look fat" (as if, lol)! Not to mention that my shopping patience only lasts so long, lol especially if my blood sugar is low and there isn't any Coke in site :) And then once the dress is found we have to get shoes and jewelry and then we can leave, lol! Ah to be a teenage girl again--NOT, I wouldn't go back if you paid me big $$$$, lmbo! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I kept the color scheme to royal blue, yellow and white and made it fun for a tween or teenager to receive. The yellow paper with small stars is from PTI, the other dp is from DCWV and then I embossed the blue cs with a NEW Cuttlebug Folder (large dots--isn't it cool)! The sentiment is from PTI as well and then rhinestones bling it up a bit!
"You Have Mail" image is perfect for tween/teen girls in your life!
picture tutorial HERE if you'd like to have a looksy! I tried drawing out the keyboard on silver cs but it looked odd to me, lol so I got a free clipart image from Google and resized it and printed it out. The screen is silver cardstock with the corners rounded and then some cardstock and a fun sentiment from PTI--rhinestones finish it off. To create the back pocket for the gift card---I just lined the sides and bottom with scor-tape to make a pocket and then the whole thing folds flat so you can easily mail it.
Hope you enjoyed it and I'll see you back here on Monday for the October Magnolia-licious Blog Hop--theme is "We're Cookin'"!!! You won't want to miss it!!
