No Matter How Old~

You never out grow the need to find the Red Light on at Krispy Kreme!! Yum!

Is there anything better than a fresh, hot donut and a large, cold Diet Coke? I think NOT!

Ever since Ashlyn and Holden were little we made it our mission to find the light on at least once during our beach trips to Myrtle Beach and Virginia Beach.

And it’s safe to say we have successfully completed our missions frequently no matter the weather.

Excessive heat, torrential rain, snow… nothing comes between us and our Krispy Kremes.

So when I needed a picture of the kids at age 5 for Studio Calico’s Birthday Challenge Number 2, I knew this one would be perfect.

Graphically Speaking for the number line cut at a width of 7″.

Project Life ~March 4th through March 24th

Since I finished up my Happy Little Moments book, I decided I would concentrate on my Project Life album. I think that once it’s up to date it will be a fun way to review the week on Sundays. But first I have to get all caught up! Eek!

The hardest part for me is choosing the pictures, because I want to include them all. These weeks were extra hard since we have been SO busy, but I finally narrowed down my choices and got busy.

The Week of March 4th- 10th~

I used Graphically Speaking for the number collages cut at a height of 2.81″. The numbers of 13 are from Mickey Fonts cut at a total width of 3″.

I still can’t believe my twins are 13!! Teenagers!!

My pointing finger comes from the Good Old Days cut at 2″.

The Week of March 11-17th~

A close up of my hamburger~

Cut from Fast Food at 2.25″

The Week of March 18-24th~

I printed and stamped a Studio Calico camera stamp directly on vellum.

My shopping bag cut from Celebrations at 2.75″~

I used several journal and photo templates called Splendid Fiins by Nisa Fiin that I purchased from Jessica Sprague.

I think I’m actually making a little progress in Photoshop!! Yippee!!

Wonder if Photoshop can help the fact that four days of the week are spent at either a baseball or softball field? If not, I guess there will be A LOT of sports pictures in our future!

Happy Little Moments ~I finished!!

Yippee!! While I love, love, love this little book there is nothing like the feeling of finishing a project.

And I see plenty of these fun little books in my future. Wouldn’t all those Joe-centric Stephanie Plum books be perfect for this? He he!

I found this book plate in my October Afternoon stash and added it to the front. It reminds me of a Little Golden Book.

For my back cover I thought it would be cute to make a library pocket envelope and card.

I used~
Fabulous Finds to cut the pocket at 4.25″
Papertrey Ink library card stamp

This little book has certainly made ME happy. Although my oldest daughter has already counted the number of pictures of each child and they are not equal. So, it looks like I’ll be making another to make HER happy.
