Another of my DT projects I submitted for Bella Blvd. I took these photos of my eldest about 2 months ago and it took my breath away at how grown up he looked!!!!
Do you spy that cute little bat pin from My Little Bit Of Whimsy! ....and today I received in the mail some cutie patootie moustache pins, I can't wait to play with them.

crowns and things...

A couple of months ago my boys and I made some paper crowns with cardboard and other bits and pieces. They loved them so much they kept them on all day...even when playing with their trucks in the sandpit!
This was another layout for my Basic Grey DT submission.

.....and have you seen that my good friend Gail is having a FREE shipping sale over at her etsy store. She is making way for some new and exciting items that will be on sale real soon!

He creates....

Lately I have been thinking about and reading some articles about technology and kids. I know it is going to happen eventually but I am trying to keep new technology away from my boys for as long as possible,  being a teacher I do now the benefits of all these gadgets(educational games etc) but for now for me I want my boys to use their imagination and create their own fun!
This was another Submission for Basic Grey, my second layout.

So I tried out for the Bella Blvd DT but didnt make the team, I was disappointed but I was really really happy with my four layouts that I produced so I can't be too upset!
A few months ago we went to a dinosaur exhibit with some friends, the kiddos had a ball.
