The Loss of a Legand

Today, the world lost one of the most influential people to our musical history. Michael Jackson will be greatly missed by many so many people, young and old. I will certainly make certain that my children with know the music and the man. Please keep his family in your prayers and promise to never forget! WE MISS YOU MICHAEL!!!

My Dollar Tree Card

I love to bargain hunt. I love to craft on a dime and get the most for my money. So, believe it or not, you can find some pretty cool crafting items at the Dollar Tree. They have patterened paper, stickers and lots of alterables. On this card, the patterend paper, and Happy Birthday cake sticker, were all purchased at the Dollar Tree, which is SO awesome! This is my entry for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #73. Hope you like it!

Cardstock: white cardstock, Dollar Tree Patterned Paper, yellow cardstock, aqua cardstock

Starlight Drive-In Theater

This past Friday, my family and I went to the Starlight Drive-In Theater. It was great. This was the first time I had actually been to a drive-in. It felt so nostalgic. If you live in the Atlanta area, you should definitely make a trip to check it out. But be warned, if you go on the weekend, be sure to allow yourself about 30 minutes before the start of your movie to get in, because the lines get long, quick. Here's the website:

Weekly Color Inspiration

I love Kristina Werner's blog. I visit almost everyday and check out the new things that she has going on. She does a weekly color inspiration challenge, but I have never actually participated in the challenge. So, I figured, new blog, new challenges. I'm going to give it a go and see what I can come up before the deadline of the post, which is June 24. The colors are gorgeous and I'm pretty sure I will be able to come up with some creative.


Ok, this weird... I love to blog hop, checking out what's going on in other people's lives and getting inspiration. I visit several blogs a day and now have my own blog. I can't believe this! I am so excited and I am really looking forward to being able to meet many new people and make some friends who have the same interests as myself. So, here goes... WELCOME TO SAYDIE PAPER CRAFTS.
