Girly Layouts!

So happy to be able to do girly layouts about my daughter.  I am even more excited about crafting with her... I hope she loves it as much as I do.

Anywhoodles, here is a little girly funny layout.  It is called 3 Generations... she loves her dolls already and she is not even 2.  She feeds them, burps them, walks them in their stroller and puts them in their beds!  It is amazing to watch!

Project Time!

Happy June!

I bought this magazine a few months ago... I am a virgo and I love organizing, labelling and all that goodness!

While I was a little disappointed it didn't have more of the organizing, labelling and scrappy room pics rather than all the card pics nut I did see a cool, easy soup can project. If you seen my kids desk you would know

We started right away collecting cans...

The tough part was the lazy Susan, I couldn't find one anywhere. Then a friend recommended Value Village and bam... a grey marble lazy susan for $6 !

So we sprayed the cans... covered them with fabric and glued them to the lazy susan.

All done...


And look at how clean his desk is now!
