So proud...

Check out what my little guy Jack did today!!!!

He rode in his first big horse show today. My mom warned him going in these are all good riders and not to be upset if he did not place. Well guess what! Not only did he place in every class he rode in, he even took a first in the walk, trot class...How about that? Some of the classes were as as deep as 11 riders.

We are so very proud of him!

In the scrappy world I did the DT project of the month for Marks Paper Company.

For Easter this year instead of giving my mom flowers I decided to alter this Maya Road Chipboard box and mini album. She has 8 grandchildren and there were 8 pages in the mini. For the box I covered it in papers from the Old Fashion Courtship Collection and embellished with trim, a flower with leaves and a gem. The top of the box is cover with crystals. All the edges are inked to add a more homespun feel.

Each page has a similar design and a black and white photo of each child. On the back of each page it says, I love my Mom-Mom because... The kids each wrote why they loved her and signed their name. The front of each page of the mini is inked and then on each side is a 2 x 2 inch piece of paper. They are embellished each with a flower and crystals. I also added a little ribbon to soften the project a bit.

My SIL is doing a super easy giveaway on her blog, check it out here. Of course I had to have this. And I bought this for his teacher. Great teacher appreciation gift, don't you think? Be sure to stop by and put your entry in for the prize of your choice.

Be sure to stop by One Single Seed paper kits are 50% off or more. Now is a great time to stock up!
