Okay, last night my 3 year old daughter told me that her nose hurt because there was something up there. She said she didn't know what or how it got there and wouldn't admit to putting anything in there, also she didn't seem too upset. So, I forget and we go to bed (yes i will win mother of the year award). This morning she says it again, but says it is a little football from a shoe. Then I remember that my son's crocs had little ball decorations on them. We get a light and a pair of tweezers and sure enough, I can see it and I pull out a penny size rubber baseball! And I wonder why?

By the way, my oldest twice put a Flintstones vitamin up her nose and my son when 3 had to have a pretzel removed by the ENT doctor! What do they think when they do this?

Anyway, I hope to get crafting this weekend....long holiday weekend...hooray!

The weather should be nice and my 2 older girls are marching in the Memorial Day parade on Monday with their Girl Scout troop! My oldest, went to the prom last night! So much going on this month....graduation is next weekend!

Well, Happy Memorial Day!

Baby Shower!

My friend's sister is having a baby girl soon. And she asked me to make the invites for her baby shower. I gave her 3 different ideas and this is the one she chose. My other Friends liked this one best too. So, for the last week, I have been assembling 40 of these! They are done and delivered and I hope that she loves them!
I love the pocket card. Below is what it looks like when the invite is put inside.

The baby is a girl, so I had to go with pink. I know a bit predictable, but I love pink. Then I thought the swiss dots in white just reminded me of cute baby clothes. And of course ribbons and a frilly border punched. It was fun to design baby cards. The best part of doing the invites was delivering them because I got to see my friend's 10 day old baby. He was so cute and cuddly! He seemed so small, although he was over 8 pounds, so a good size baby. Well, my baby is 3 years old, so 8 pounds is tiny to me. I tried to take his picture, but he cried, here he is anyway!

Isn't he cute? I get to see him again on Saturday! :)
Well, I hope you all have a great day! I am off work, but my day is full of appts, so I must get moving now!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Melanie :)

Blue Birthday

So, it has been a while since I have posted a project. This is a birthday card that I made with felt. I have been having a lot of fun using my Big Shot and felt. With the dies, it is so easy to perfectly cut and it is fun to layer. This is a quick card that I made with faux pearl accents and a happy birthday sentiment.
I have been very busy this week making invites for a baby shower. I hope to finish these today. I hope to post them soon. The sun will be shining and the temperatures in the 60's today so it makes me motivated to get my new i phone is coming today! I am so excited. So, have a great day! I hope to post again soon!
