1st Challeng LO

This lo is for a blog challenge over at http://scrappersblockchallengeblog.blogspot.com. It is a new challenge blog and the challenge was to use no patterned paper! Not an easy accomplishment for me. My subject is adorable so I am ok with it. The digi kit I used was from the Spring Sampler by Sharon Carol. It is a great digi kit. The trees are from the kit Raspberry treats 1 by Raspberry Roads Designs. Thanks for taking a peek!

Gift Card holder

This is a fun project I did at SU regionals and have made some with my club as well. It is pretty easy to do. The vanilla paper is cut 9 3/4" x 6". length wise score at 4 3/4" and then again at 5". rotate 90 degrees and score at 2 1/2". This will make the pocket for the gift cards to fit into. Card size is 4" x2 3/4.

Kids do the darndest things!

Let me start my story by saying that I work at a daycare. I took one of the boys (2yrs old) to the bathroom and went to catch the phone. ( he was supposed to take off his pants and pullup) I grabbed the phone and as I was answering it was on my way back to the bathroom...well of course the call was a hangup so I look in the bathroom and the little boy had the small toilet seat that the girls use on his head pointing to it saying "Queen" with the biggest smile on his face. Q qwa Queen is one of the phonics flash cards that we do every day. He was so proud of himself for knowing Q is Queen. If I was not grossed out about the toilet seat on his head I would have snapped a picture. It was soooo hard not to roflmbo. I did reassure him that Q is Queen but we do not put toilet seats on our head. Kids are to funny!

Digital Scrapbooking!

This is my first attempt at Digital Scrapbooking and I am quite happy with it. The picture was taken last summer of Crissy (my sister in-law/friend) was just hanging out in the backyard, my Dad handed her the rose and I got this picture. The digi kit that I used was free from ShabbyPricess.com it is called the Promise. I love the kit is is really girly cute!
