Off to see Great Grandma

I made these cards for my son and daughter.  They are on the road right now with their grandparents.  My husband's grandmother is visiting from Thailand, so they are heading down to Orlando to see her.  They will get a card each day while they are away.  I did this for them because I know they will appreciate them.  They are my number one fans!!!  This will be the first time my kids will remember meeting their great grandmother.  They were just babies when she was here last time.

I made these in a hurry on Friday while the kids were at school.  Luckily it wasn't a half day :-)

I even made them a little bookmark to go with the new books I bought them for the trip.  His is a monster and hers is a panda (as you can see in the picture).

It has been a very busy week.  My son had a report to do on migrates and green rays, so all my free time went to either helping him or letting him use my computer.  I will be by to check out all your blogs later today, since I have free time now!!!

Happy Spring!

Hello Spring!  I recently found Miss Kate Cuttables and I am really enjoying the free daily files.  The free file today was this bunny, egg, flowers and green oval (grass).  I used some existing Silhouette files and a font already loaded onto my computer to finish out this project.  I will definitely be purchasing some files from this website and have already purchased some through the Silhouette Online Store.

Happy Scrapping!

Love is patient, love is kind, memory verse -Airplane Style

Love is paitent, love is kind...perfect memory verse for this project.  My son is very smart, but can be unmotivated when it comes to school :-(.  After printing out the weekly newsletter and deciding how to tackle the weekly tasks, this was a no brainer to me.  My son loves airplanes and wants to be a pilot one day.  This verse should be easy to learn in bits and pieces, something he can do on his own.  4th grade is a lot tougher than 1st grade and I often forget to go over bible verse and spelling words with my daughter, who is in the first grade.  I'm sure I will have to make one for her, both love my scrappy projects.  Sweet kids they are!!!

Happy BIrthday Mom!

We are celebrating my Mom's Birthday today.  I'm excited, it's been a while since I have seen my family, as I was sick Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I purchased all the files from the Silhouette store.  The flower is actually a looks like a flower doesn't it?  I used thick kraft paper to make the boxes sturdy, then covered them in patterned paper.  The paper is Colorbok, purchased at Wal-Mart.  The blue tin was purchased at the dollar store, how cute is it???
