New Blog Header

Time for a blog makeup! I am trying to change the layout of the blog, but not having any luck. I might have to close this one and open a new one in a format I like.

I used the Bouncing Bunnies and Brownies Coll. and Faerily Moonlit by Lorie Davison at SBG.

If you don't know who she is, you haven't been to my blog in a long, long, long time. :)

Taran Conyers / Climbing Trees is for the Monkeys!

I did this layout for the Taran Conyer's playday over at Scrapbook-Graphics. I love, love, love the colors of this page, and the monkey sticker is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute!
While I was in the kitchen, you and Kaylie went out to the backyard to play. Nimble as a monkey, you climbed up the tree; however, you got your foot stuck up on a high branch and couldn’t get it out. ¡Mama! ¡Mama;! I need help! My foot is stuck! By the time I realized you were in trouble, Kaylie had already gone up the tree to dislodge your foot. You learned your lesson: climbing trees is best left to the monkeys!

The Bovine Project

Aren't you amazed at how crafty Kaylie and I are becoming? As if last week's STAR OF THE WEEK PROJECTS ( Here Birdie ATCs, Splash ATCs and Booklet/Presentation) weren't enough, we now have to work on an animal project.
The specifications are that we must use a box, include 5 facts about the animal of our choice and try to make it as realistic as possible.
I googled the cow facts and had Kaylie choose her favorites, which she then had to write down in index cards.
Our supplies, if you want to try it out :)
Tacky glue
Hot glue and glue gun
grosgrain ribbon (for tying the tail and for the custom made bow that decorates one of the ears)
felt (black and white)
pink card paper (for utters and underside of cow)
index card/pencil/crayons
Cow parts I downloaded from the net, which I then sized and cut for assembly.
plastic straw
Christmas garland (for wiggly, fuzzy tail)
(Note: I am starting to feel like McGiver. Remember him? If you don't know who or what I am talking about click HERE.) I used to love watching him. (notice I said him, not the show. :)
But I digress, the project was due tomorrow and we finished it 1 day ahead of time. She was one happy camper this morning. (the pictures aren't great, even though I tried to fix them. It is dark and rainy today so the photos are dark, even with flash.
Anyway, now you know why I have been away and why I have been so busy. I can't wait to see what our next project is going to be!

Hello, My Name is Kait and I am a bracket-holic.

I admit it, I love these bracket templates. I think my obsession started about a month ago...
Anyway, did you know that Janet Phillips is running a special? She just put this Bracket album in her store...and it's on special.
