Many things to CELEBRATE!

On Monday our team met for unit meeting and we had much to celebrate. Nikki Velasco got engaged to her long time sweetie Sean, we celebrated Jodie Coffman's upcoming birthday and my super sweet customer Keri Malone gave birth to her second boy Cullen Edward (Twilight fans rejoice!).  Here I am with Nikki and Jodie:

We had a lot of fun creating a box of notecards I created for them using Boom Di Ada paper and the April Stamp of the Month: Flower Pot.  Colors featured are Hollyhock, Barn Red, Gardem Green & Autumn Terracota.  Here are the girls having fun creating & chatting:

And here is the final product:

Isn't this cute!!!!

Nothing Beats Celebrating Friends!

Yesterday was an awesome day.  My best friend in the whole world - you know, the one you grew up with that you dreamed your future with, made all sorts of pacts, clubs, and whatever other thought comes to a little girls mind - had her baby shower.  So of course I was helping her with the celebration of her second baby boy.  It was so much fun to see her, as it always is, because that kind of friendship reminds you the importance of creating and preserving childhood memories.  Here I am with my sweet Flavia, a person whom everyone seems to love, and that makes the world a better place.

I made a diaper cake for her which was tons of fun.  I had always wanted to make one!

Diapers are ready for Nicolas!

Hope your weekend was good too!

Mondays are good!

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We did here in Florida.  The temperature is starting to climb back up and the sun was shining so I cannot complain.  Had a nice weekend with the kids - and I get reminded every second of how blessed I am but boy, I am getting old!  We did some baking, cooking, coloring and running outside, played lots of Mancala and I have Wow Wow Wubbzy episodes logged in my brain permanently. 
I did however, have a little time to scrapbook!  I actually completed this two page layout using a Level 1 Kit (Topstitch).  It was for my Valentine Dance party with Marc at his school.  It was fun and easy to make and it was instant gratification.

I added some Dimensional hearts.  Some were covered in the patterned paper and some were simply inked.

There is minimal stamping - just used some scrolls from the Topstitch Workshop on the Go and the title is stamped using the Chocolate and Delightful alphabet stamp sets.  Hope you like it!

I also worked on a super cute boxed card set which I will teach at Unit Meeting this month - pictures to come soon!
