Help me send Birthday wishes?

For years I would suggest a no-fuss birthday for me to my family & friends. "really, it's no big deal", "just another day", blah, blah, blah. I have no idea why I did that. It's not like I am anti-aging. Regardless, as the years went by, and my family & friends ignored my pleas, I started to enjoy all the I say "bring it on!", and they do :).

Today, I have a chance to 'fuss' over someone and I'm wondering if you'd like to help?

Kristin, a scrapbooking friend from Pennsyvania, has a daughter, Hailey, that will be turning 16 on March 27th.

Hailey has Asperger's Syndrome, which is a high functioning autism. Knowing how much Hailey LOVES and TREASURES any cards or things she gets in the mail, Kristin is asking everyone/anyone to send her a card. Kristin's husband is currently laid off and Hailey doesn't ask for much, so she thought this would really make her sweet sixteen, well, sweet...and a great blessing.

Please send cards to:
Hailey Keller
ALverton, PA 15612

Now, as a side note...if you're wondering about that cute birthday card, you're in luck. Well, kind of. The very first time I got in front of a camera I did a series of videos for the Creating Keepsakes website.

And you can tell. oh, my, it's a little embarrassing, but I'm not one to avoid laughing at myself, so come on and join me!

I'm glad for that first opportunity though, as I permanently got rid on those butterflies (I was a little nervous), and moved on to do a series of instructional videos for CK Media and of course, my stint with Studio 5 and have loved every moment of it.

Introduction...and yes,that is Megan Hoeppner! Currently creative editor for Creating Keepsakes Magazine and regular Studio 5 contributor, but at the time intrepid editor for Paper Crafts Magazine.

Here's the rest of them...they divided them up into several segments. I believe they separated them into 7 segments because they released one a day over a week's period.

Creating the Base of the card, ribbon and brad. I think the skipped something here, but you get the gist.

Cutting the cake die-cut. I've already said the word "fun" more than I care to admit. (sorry Steve...I know how much you love the word 'fun'!)

Distressing...yup, I've been doing that a long time and still love the look.

Layering and assembling the die-cuts.

But wait...there's more!

Finishing the goodness, I do it much quicker in class, don't I?
