Our Little Princess

Papers ~ Hobby Lobby, CTMH Notebook, Cricut, Disney Font Mickey & Friends, Chip Board Heart Journal Tag w/ Liquid Glass, SU Scallop Border Punch, Lots of Bling Sparkles.

We gave our little grandaughter Meghan a Princess Christmas last year, with the Disney Hut Princess Tent, two dresses, dvd, and all the bling. She loves to dress up, dance and sing. She is so cute!
I had my grandaughters for a few hours this morning, and when I showed Meghan this layout of her she smiles and says... "There's a Princess at Meghan's house" She's 2 1/2. : )
I've got a lot to do today to get ready for our trip to the Dells. I hate packing. I end up taking half the house and not using it. KWIM
Sam just got over with the flu and now both boys have colds. I hoping they'll be feeling better by tomorrow. We won't be spending all our time at the Water Park.
I probably won't be posting anything else till next week sometime.
Have a great weekend. Love you guys! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp Image-Ribbon CTMH ... Family Ties, Classmate Alphabet. Foam Dots, Copic Markers.

This is a cute image, but I'm still stuck on Bella! CTMH came out with a stamp line of stick people. Cute!!
My daughter and son in law are trying for there third child. They are hoping for a boy this time, but they would be thrilled to have a third daughter. As far as i know my daughter seldom checks my blog. This card is for them. I'll post the happy news when I hear it. :)
We are going to the Wisconsin Dells the 1st - 3rd. Indoor Water Park. Can't wait. I know my boys are so excited to go. We haven't taken a family trip in a while. Now with having a dog we had to make arrangements with my daughter to take Toby for a few days. He's looking forward to the sleep over. LOL. I recently finished another doggy page.

This is a funny little story I have to tell ya. When I was holding Toby last night his little {you know what} was showing.{1st time Micah seen it} Micah walks up and says... "ewe it's brownish" {actually red} I said..."Oh it just comes out when dogs get excited" Micah say's...
"Oh it's like..."It's nice to meet you"
I LOL and said... "well it's something like that". Since my boys were little I have a kept a notebook of funny things they have said. This one is going in it. :)

Have a great Wednesday! Thanks for your sweet comments and stoppin by!

Silly Hat

My granddaughter Cailyn with her winter hat. She hates the thing. Good thing there are strings, or she'd be trying to pull it off like her socks...LOL
I love the 3 pom poms tassels on top. When i took these pictures beginning of January she just started walking, two weeks short of 1 year old.
It seems like this page took me forever to put together. I kept turning it after i adhered the 1/2 circle with ric rac. The chipboard letters look green? I sponged them in CTMH Juniper Ink to match the color of the papers. I don't like it , but it's done. :)
I know my granddaughters will love to look at these pages one day.
CTMH Perfect Day Papers, Love Letters Rub-ons,, Retired Plastic Flower Embellishments. Ric Rac from Wal-Mart. {looks just like CTMH.
Sam is sick with 101.1 temp. He came downstairs @ 2 am this morning. "Mom i just threw up" At least he made it to the bathroom. Poor guy, he's been on the couch all day.
Well ya all, that's all i have for now. I'm hoping to be back with a card. I bought some new pretty papers from WM.
Have a great Sunday! Thanks for stoppin by.

Valentine Card

I was fooling around yesterday with this card. I used my CB Birds and Swirls Folder and CTMH February Word Puzzle Stamp Set, Red Ribbon, Heart was stamped with Cranberry Ink, cut out and mounted with foam dots.

Today was a lazy Saturday. Didn't do a heck of a lot. Laundry and a few errands. Oh and Dairy Queen. LOL Sam had a friend over last night. Micah has a bad cough today. Charlie had to work. Other than that not much happening here. Facebook was rocking yesterday. We had a good time over there... : )
I'd be lying if i said i didn't miss CTMH & the gals on BB. I needed a break from it all. I ran into a gal last night, she was ready to order from me and sign up under me. {would have been my 1st down line} Oh well
I changed my blog background today. Do you like it?
Cutest Blog On The Block
Well that's all i have for now. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week end!

This layout was fun to put together. I just took these pictures of my 1 year old granddaughter Cailyn last Friday. She was playing on the floor so nice, all of a sudden she decides she wants her socks off. LOL I was able to capture the frustration on her face as she was pulling and pulling trying to get them off. She tipped over twice in the process. And crying about it to boot. I finally had to take her socks off. : )
I showed these pictures and layout to my daughter. She LOL and said... "That's my Cailyn, What a Noodle" It will be fun to show these pages to my granddaughters when they get older. I hope they will laugh about it too.
