Time to play...

I made time to play this week. Yep, and this is what I made. I took this picture of my niece Adrienne on her second birthday and finally scrapped it. I just love this picture with the focus on the cake and candle yet you still see her blurred in the background!

Here is a detail shot of the biggest flower:

And one of the journaling spots from Creative Chaos Etsy. Jenn's goodies are addicting and I just can't get enough.

I made this new LO for Marks Paper Company. I combined both collections and was thrilled with how well they go together! I scrapped this photo before but I love it so much. I did a series of photos with my Mom, my boys and their cousin Gabi and everyone of them is my favoite, he he he! There will be another giveaway soon. I will be sure to let you know which one of my fellow DTers is up next.

A few details:

BoBunny sponsered the paper team this month at One Single Seed. I made this cute little tag with the U Bug Me line and think it will look great on a kraft colored gift bag.

Coming up on March 29th Amy Teets will be doing a chat at I AM A Scrapaholic, stop by and check it out. Her new line is so pretty. Here is a little bit of a mini I made using the kit from this month.

My SIL Susan just finished the first giveaway on her blog but don't be disappointed if you did not win she will be doing 3 more in the next 3 weeks so add her to your favorites and check back each week for your chance to win something from her shop! Congrats Angel!

My son Jack has been bugging us like crazy for that butterfly set he keeps seeing advertised on TV. For his birthday we decided to surprise him with a Butterfly Kit. We are having so much fun checking them each day for changes. It really is an awesome project to do with kids. The whole family is loving it and I know we will do this again.

I really appreciate you all for coming back each week and checking out my new goodies. I love being inspired by all of you and just wanted to say thanks for stopping by!

Love the LO's as always! I'm really feeling the need to get me some of the Marks Paper...lol! The flowers on the first layout were way cute. BTW, what paper line did you use on that layout? I usually am pretty good at recognizing the different lines, but I'm drawing a blank on this one.

Boy, did you bring back memories with the butterflies! We had such a blast doing that when my kids were younger. Can't wait to see pics of them! Hope you are having a great weekend!
