Earlier this year my little E got a mild ear infection and was prescribed antibiotics, so she had to stay home from school the following day. She was a little bummed so I decided to take her for her first PEDICURE! She had a blast and I was kicking myself for forgetting to bring my camera. Her nail tech treated her like a little princess, it was so cute. They gave her a water in a little goblet and wrapped up her hair like she was at a spa. Well I didn't get before or during pictures but I did get after pics! I knew exactily which papers I'd be using for this LO. Crate Papers: Paper Dolls, these papers had to be made with E in mind ;0). Visit  my gallery to see a full list of products used.

I used stickles and glossy accents to jazz up the baby doll". I designed this LO from a sketch a friend of mind found.

At the end of every year I always like to give my daughters' teachers a little gift to show my apprection for all they've done during the year. This year I had a little bit of a problem. My oldest had a male teacher for the first time! He is one of those teachers that REALLY takes time to get to know each student and can really give parents helpful insight into how to better help your child. He challenged R to go above and beyond instead of letting her get away with doing good enough!  Towards the end of the year we found out he'd be taking a job at a different school as the math coach. He'll be teaching other teacher's how to teach their students math. In addition to the girls teacher's I had to especially thank the school nurse. My youngest has asthma and since we moved here to MD it hasn't been well controlled. I feared I'd have to quit my job to be more available for her. But Ms.Shipley was amazing. She went exceeded any expectations I had and looked out for my baby while she was at school and called me if there were any concerns. Thank goodness she'll be there next year!

Spring Fever!

I love those first few days of Spring when the kids can go out an play, ride their bikes & scooters, play at the park, and climb a tree. I usually in enjoy watching from a comfortable chair, peeking over the latest issue of one my favorite scrapbook magazines and sipping on a Sierra Mist.
During the first few weeks of Spring, the weather here was back and forth. One day it would be warm and breezy in the hi 70s and the next day it would be freezing cold in the lo 50s. After a few days of cold weather we finally got a warm sunny day, the flowers were blooming on the trees, insects were coming out, birds were everywhere and the kids on my street were so excited to be outdoors.

For this LO I used Fancy Pants: Sweet Spring Line. Kaydee, Marli, Abbi, & Sweet Spring Alpha.
Thickers alpha's, Glimmer mist: Black magic. The masking kind of happened on accident. I was trying to spray the yellow background paper because I thought it was too bright and didn't see the piece of paper covering one of strips.  After I saw the result I decided to give it a try on purpose and used little pieces of paper and paperclips.
Here's a sketch I created and used for this LO.
