"Family Reunion Invitation" by Jill Sarginson
Supplies - Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Walk in the Park collection), Bo Bunny, Dream Street; Tools: Creative Memories circle punch, Marvy Uchida circle punch; Vibrance; Stickers: Scenic Route, October Afternoon; Alphabets: Jenni Bowlin; Unknown: Ribbon, Flowers, Brads

I decided to make a family reunion invitation, using the sketch almost exactly as shown. I used circle punches to make the various size of circles and used two different pieces of pattern paper - using both sides of one to keep the colour scheme matching as close as possible.

"The Beauty of Spring" by Christina Hoffman
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Jillibean Soup; Alphabet: Cosmo Cricket; The Paper Studio and American Crafts; Embroidery Thread: DMC; Sketch: Allison Davis (Two-page Sketch #2)

I left all the measurments the same for the main tree but reduced the circle sizes on the smaller tree.

I love love trees especially yours Allison. The card is so cute and fun in the first one. The layout is fun with those wavy hills you've made before Allison. The hills and the trees are so cute. What a great idea for the add-on and cant' wait to see more of them this week.
