I made this card for my nephew who turned 10 on the 2nd. I can't believe how fast the time goes by.... I remember the day he was born so vividly! I just used a fun font to stamp the outside. I just wanted to be a colorful card that wasn't too little boy-ish! Thanks for looking!

A simple Thank You card made with a Cuttlebug Folder! I inked the negative side of the folder with brown ink so when pressed the letters popped and remained white. I just used some scrap green paper for some color and added some washi tape for interest! Thanks for visiting!

I had letters in my stash that were made out of a cardboard material. I wrapped each letter with Bakers' Twine and then strung it up like a banner. The old wooden frame was bought YEARS ago at a yard sale and I never did anything with it. I love the way it looks and am so proud of this I little project! My hubby even said he thought it was cute!
Thanks for looking

Since there are 10 Grandchildren, I simply titled the Brag Book "10." I made a collage of pictures for each page for each family. Then embellished and went crazy with baker's twine, chipboard cut outs, stickers/decals, stamps, and of course - BUTTONS! I also added a few non-page elements that don't include pictures but added interest instead. I used plain chipboard for the front and back cover and covered it with paper, and bound it with my Cinch, and then a green ribbon built into the front and back cover to tie it closed.
So here is my project... Starting from the cover! All of the pictures I took with my phone, so I hope they look alright...
|Chipboard "10" and a metal tag that says "together"|
|My oldest brother and his wife's daughter. She is such a fun, energetic little girl!|
|My brother and sister in law's 3 boys. Monogram stickers with their initials and a giant button! These boys are roguh and tough and give good hugs!|
|A tag slide out... and the little envelope is made from a paper towel roll cut down to size, embellished with some baker's twine and a star button.|
|My brother and his wife's two beautiful daughters. They are such great sisters to each other. I quilled the flower and leaves, then added some "bling" to the center of the flower.|
|The youngest brother and his wife's family. Silver monograms with their initials, washi-tape, and baker's twine. Such wonderful personalities in these three! And lots of energy!|
|A sewn layered tag and I just wrote that little message on there - it's true!|
|Family pictures of the three boys together... LOVE this picture - it is so colorful and fun! Embellished with a chipboard cut out and some washi tape.|
|Leaves bound in the book (not real of course)... just added some interest and accented the picture of the boys in the leaves on the opposite page.|
|Chipboard letters, pop-dotted and colorful with a couple doodles.|
|Another family picture of siblings. Is this not the sweetest picture ever?|
|The sisters again.... they have turned into beautiful young women. Embellished with some thickers.|
|A tag at the end for Mamaw, on the back are all of the grandchildren's names!|

So, as a shower gift, we received a book of "Baby Faces" full of facial expressions and bright, vibrant colors. The pictures are simple, but she is so intrigued by them. She talks to the faces, and tries to grab the bow she sees in a girls' hair, but anyway, this book is amazing! It is indeed indestructable! It is a wonderful that she can have a book that she can chew on, crumple up, and just be a baby with! I love it! I wish we had some more of these! Although it would just be from boredom eventually, because there is no way she can tear this book apart!
If you are looking for a great shower gift, birthday present, or anything like that, I highly recommend these for the little ones in your life.
|Baby girl checking out her Baby Faces book. Can you tell by the creases that it has been loved on a bit?!|
|And this is the book she was looking at!|

Easter weekend was VERY busy around our neck of the woods! On Saturday, my family came over to the house, which means Saturday morning was hands full of lysol, paper towels, windex, and any other cleaning product. I usually clean the house every Saturday morning. It's my routine. But for some reason I felt there was more pressure as the family was headed over and there was a deadline! Normally my home is dusted, vacuumed, mopped, sheets washed, I wash down cabinet doors, etc... and I get it done by about 10 am. But with a "I want this house to be perfect for company", I even washed baseboards. Yes, I have OCD. :o)
So, we had a feast of ham, green beans, macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs (thanks Kate and John!) and two desserts consisting of Chess bars (thanks Mama!) and Indoor s'mores (Thanks Kevin and Leslie)! It was scrumptious! At least I thought so! There was a little Easter egg hunt, and the weather eas perfect, not too warm, not too cold! Here are some pictures from that day I want to share!
|My stove with pans of macaroni and cheese, and what is left of a ham bone.|
|My niece's plate with ham, green beans and plenty of 'Roni Cheese" (that's how she says it)!`|
|She loved it!!! Baby doll has a rattle in her, and someimtes she would grab that doll and shake it to pieces! Then it would be followed by a giggle.|
|Rose sitting in her daddy's boat. Mamaw picked out Rose's outfit. White little dress with polkadots!|
|Easter egg hunt and adults conversing. Love it!|
|More Easter egg hunt. It was a fun time, and I think in the end I was glad it was over for the mere fact of I didn't really sleep the night before thinking of all that had to be done! But, I would do it again tomorrow. I love my family.|
Day 2 of Easter Weekend - AKA Easter Sunday.
Wow - did I want to get out of bed in the morning? Ummm... NO! I was still exhausted! Ha! We went to my in-laws house on Easter Sunday. Rose wore her Easter Dress. I baked a cake, made some frosting, and of course there were sprinkles... however in the rush of getting evertything baked and cleaned up and back to normal from the day before, I failed to photograph that.
At my husband's parents' house, there was a feast including Ham, Fried Chicken, baked beans, potato salad, more deviled eggs and pasta salad. There was a TON of food! But, we had a good time! There was an Easter egg hunt, but Rose was napping! Here are some rcorded moments of that day...
|Rose in her with Easter dress with Pink roses coving it! How appropriate!|
|"So this is what a Easter egg looks like?"|
|This is what she does when she wakes up... I melt Every. Simgle. Time.|
|Her eye-hand coordination is improving everyday! And she loved to try to grab the Easter decoration!|
I know it's a very long post, and I totally photo-bombed on this post. But life has been a little crazy lately, and I have a lot of catching up to do. So thanks for bearing with me while I share our store!
Thank you for visiting!
