Third Birthday Fun!

Our Birthday Adventure weekend began with Build a bear! Don't you just love her lol her name is avery and she is full dressed down to the panties, gotta love build a bear! Then our night was complete with Chickfila and a night at the theatre seeing Story time live! What a great day!
Saturday was her party with all of her friends and they had such a wonderful time. They certainly are so funny whent they are all together....Yes before you ask I did make the dress, and yes I do sell them for $25 email me for more information. It turned out really cute and went very well with the ariel theme! By the time that Saturday night rolled around we were all very very tired....Im still trying to recover. We partied it up this weekend!

Now on to a scrapbooking idea for your Hot Summer Monday:

Sometimes simple is ok, and sometimes you have to let the picture speak for itself. This was a page out of a custom order book that I completed, I used a chip board flower embellishment but I let this pretty baby girl take all the credit. You can special order pages from me or custom order a whole Scrapbook. email me or visit my etsy store for more information.

Send wedding pictures, or pictures of that precious new baby! It will fit in a 5x7 envelope or a 6x9 bubble mailer (for extra protection)....What a great way to say Love you! Tutorial to come in the next few days and a video!

Depending on the size you can fit 3-5 pictures in this mini book! Also more pages can be added...Check back later this week for the video and a few more variations!

Thank you Card

Pastor Appreciation Supper is tomorrow night, we do it every year as a special way to say thank you for all that he has done, and he certainly has. Our pastor has a special place in our hearts, he married us and has stood by us in the hard times. He is a true man of God, and I'm thankful that he answered Gods call. He has been at our church for 30 years! What a blessing!

Altered Clipboard

My Husband came home with this junky clipboard and because he loves me so much told me I could have it for whatever "craftymess" I wanted to do with So I got to thinking that I needed a place to put up my orders that need to be filled, what a great idea, I covered it in Razzle Dazzle and like magic it has turned into a place to hang my orders on the wall!
