BBTB2/ACY/Vinyl

Happy Monday....it's BBTB2 day and there are some really cute projects to see at the BBTB2 design site. Jen Wuthrich was the hostess and she asked that we design from A Child's Year, and to use the sweet image of a boy and girl both holding flowers behind their backs. I love this cartridge. Not only does it have some precious silhouette images, but each design has a plethora of extra cuts and phrases. I can see I am going to use this cartridge often. Our sponsor for this challenge is Expressions Vinyl. There is a wonderful video on how to use Vinyl.....I have added some nice numbers to my mailbox, I have put a witty saying over a photo on my wall... I love this Vinyl...
so....here is my take on the challenge. I picked up a purchased notebook and I even kept the original red and white striped paper theme. What a quick gift this made...I applied the die of the children, cut out the welded word Friends, added a sweet kitty cat watching two friends with gifts. I put some red ribbons on the wire spine and considered it completed. TFL, and do pop over to BBTB2 and admire....
