His favorite show in the world right now is Chuggington. He wanted a DVD for Christmas, but of course, they hadn't released it on DVD back then. Anyone who has a child into Playhouse Disney knows that the show has now been released, and let me tell you, Patryk knows too. I have been staring at a couple of cookie sheets I have up in the craft room, planning on making magnetic memo boards to sell in my etsy store...but now they have a different purpose...magnetic potty charts. I'm headed to the craft room to try out my great idea, using of course my Playtime Cricut cart (it has an adorable train on it) and the cookie sheet. The little train will "drive" along the tracks, headed towards Patryk's goal of being able to get the DVD. Every time he uses the potty, the train will advance a square. When he pees/poops in his Pull-Up, it goes back a square. I think this might work, and if not, oh well. It's still a cute idea. I'll be posting this afternoon, you'll have to check it out and let me know what you think!
Ok...so for the past 2 days, my 11 year old, Andraia, has been home sick with the flu-y thing I had last week. It has made crafty time hard to come by! Yesterday afternoon I was able to make this layout right here (along with a second layout that I cannot post just yet, all in due time!) I have had this Chloe's Closet paper for so long after buying the 12X12 paper pack mid-2010 on clearance. Well, this weekend I went to Michael's and found the 8x8 20 sheet paper pack for a buck, of course I had to have it! I made this layout with the MM Chloe's Closet papers, AC Remarks alpha stickers outlined to help them stand out, my I-Rock, and some random ribbon. I made this for the Colorful Creations Get Edgy challenge, and Isadory's challenge over at s4a, scrap a hero (obviously my mom, duh!) and use a sketch.
The scalloped paper is adhered with pop dots.
This layout was created this weekend for the s4a DT sketch. I chose to tone it down a bit...there was a flourish-y detail on the sketch that I felt was too much, I wanted the foliage in the photo to stand out a bit more. This is me, standing at a scenic spot along a scenic road through the White Mountains on my honeymoon in Jackson, NH.
Ok, potty chart time! Just had to share these layouts, head on over to s4a and join in on the challenges listed above. I want to see what you do with the sketches!
