Give me some Jillibean

The Scrap-room is featuring Jillibean soup in one of their 4 kits for March. I love the red flower print paper the most.

This line is Bella Blvd: Man of the House. The sketch is by Julie Bonner.

I have a several cropper hoppers that I received back in 2005 when I went to Boston to Creating Keepsakes University....yes, I went for 3 days nonstop scrapbooking. I use one cropper hopper to store my sewing threads & needles. And on the flip side I store all my floss. I wanted to alter the front of the cover so I wouldn't get the sides mixed up. For the other two cropper hoppers, I store all my small embellishments: brads, eyelets, photo corners, metal clips, etc. And the third I store my misc ribbons.

Click, Clack, Moo

Last Friday I took the day off to drive Kenzie to her preschool field trip at the children's museum. Little brother Micah got to tag along and watch the show click, clack, moo. It was a very cute play filled with dancing and comical actors. Micah commented that the tv remote Duck was using was just like the one on the Upside Down Show, which is is favorite tv show on Nick Jr. He has also been telling me he loves me everyday and it comes with a hug. I don't know what has gotten into him all of a sudden but it is so sweet so I'll just enjoy it.

This trouble maker has 4 teeth and is cutting 2 more. He stands for a few seconds without holding onto anything. He loves to eat table food and grabs at anything within reach. He also loves to throw fits if you don't walk him in the direction he wants to go.

heart mini album

For Valentines, we had a small gift exchange with 4 of my girlfriends so I decided to make them each a mini album with the pictures we took over the past 4 months. I was excited to find two clear acrylic heart albums in the clearance rack at my lss. I really needed 4 of them but they only had 2 round ones so I bought those & mixed the pages up. Papers are Bo Bunny Bandit, such a cute cute line! I was never into the acrylic albums when it was the hot trend a couple years ago but I really like the look.

And I didnt' have enough paper to complete the 2nd set so I used Little Yellow Bicycle's valentine's line here. I finished these albums really late the night before our exchange so I didn't have any time to take a good picture, that's why I had to take it in my car during lunch hour at work...hehe.

With the leftover scraps I made some tags and a card for the family's gifts.

Suuplies: Heart background stamp, ink, and ribbon is PTI, PP and embellishment is LYB, misc: heart punch and bling

This weekend I took the kids to Walmart with me so Kenzie could pick out the Valentines she wanted to hand out to her classmates. She chose the tinkerbell ones and came home and assembled all the heart suckers in them. Micah chose the powerrangers...of course.

Her Valentines party is this Thursday and here's the box she helped decorated. (She had her input in a lot of it). I started by cutting two slits into the corners of a box one of my stamps came in. And then there was a lot of folding and taping.

Next I let her paint the outside and punch circles from my pile of scrap paper for the shingles.

She told me she wanted to keep the house forever and ever because she liked it so much and asked if I could cut a door for her little marshmallow man.

And here's the end result!
