king of the castle

haha! He *really* gets into it.

How long do kids play dress-up? sixteen-seventeen? ;) Because I really love this stage.

Happy love day!

Used 4 of the 5 prompts this time for the new Mission to Create - turquoise, cardboard, 5+ hearts, lace (used some pretty paper doilies). Yep that's number 0010 and I've done them all!

We had a romantic day yesterday- flowers and chocolate delivered to the house (awww!), heart pancakes by daddy (well not really but I stamped them with a heart cookie cutter!). Then we had the most romantic evening out- at Chuck E Cheese! Complete with a huge line-up just to get in (even tried to bribe them with buying new toys to get out of it but they were having none of it). The words of my nephew says it all "it's like a casino- for kids!"

These were the pictures from the sketch machine last night. And of course I had to scrap them right away.

A little frustrating with big girl last night. She was giving major attitude (and it doesn't help that we were getting lots of smiles because she is so cute when she is dramatic). See?

Valentine's Day

The little guy REALLY wanted to bring a treat for his class so we made these tonight. I'm so happy they turned out so sweet. The papers are double-sided so there is another pretty pattern on the reverse.

1 bag of "better for you" organic suckers (to make THOSE parents happy ;))
green pipecleaners
bee stickers
treat bags & ribbon
heart punch!

I love that he wanted to buy boy AND girl Valentines (we also did pink flowers for the girls and blue for the boys). He even knew exactly which girl needed which princess card too (and got quite upset when I mixed him up) and did most of the writing himself.

I can't wait to do his first Valentine's page! (My plan is to steal all his lil cards once he's cast them aside a few days from now) ;) Does this mean I have issues?

Scrap happy

Another Mission complete for Mission to Create!

I used the fab sketch, book print (how fun and it's Valentine's paper too!) and the flowers.

And for JennC's challenge on skrapnchat- thanks Stacy for all the supplies for this one!
