Day trip

Hello there!

Just wanted to share a few pictures from this past weekend.

Chris and I took the kids to our old stomping ground - Spanish Banks, near UBC and Point Grey in Vancouver, BC. Its around a 1 hour drive from where we live. When we were dating we would go play tennis near here, go to our fav bagel store. (still there, we got some and they tasted just like I remembered!). It was such a beautiful day, clear blue skies and quite mild for February. This is a great picture of Vancouver in the distance. The one of our family has Stanley Park as the background.

The other picture is of Jake, he's changing so fast it seems. He's almost 9 months! He's such a charmer and flirt, and definately a Momma's boy!


p.s. I planned 3 upcoming classes if you'd like to head over to my website to check out the dates. I'd love to have you!

Hello on this sunny monday.

Last week was a busy one. I helped out in Kylie's Kindergarden class last tuesday and the children decorated the treat boxes that I shared previously. (the pullout ones) I premade 22 of them. It was so cute watching the kids decorate them....we used my 2 heart punches, stamps and markers.

Here is the card that Megan's grade 3 class made on thursday of last week. I used my Big Shot to made the scallop circles ahead of time. They all did such a wonderful job!

For Valentine's Day Chris gave me a bunch of beautiful red roses, some Lindt chocolate (yum) and a great black storage shelf for all of Jacob's toys. (my choice - gotta love getting organized).
In the picture its upright but I have it horizontal, along the wall....also bought 2 drawers that fit into it for all his small toys.

I had my club last thursday as well but won't share those pictures until my club this thursday has made them.

Have a great day,
Happy Stampin'

Milk Box Container

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Mine started out great by having a dowline meeting here at my house last night. It was a fun night of stamping, chatting, laughing and of course eating some yummy baking!

This was the make n' take the ladies made last night. I purchased the instructions from Becky Roberts. You can view her blog for more details about her projects here.

I love how this project uses 3 of the items you can choose free during Stampin' Up's awesome promotion - Saleabration. I used the Stamp set - Polka Dot Punches, Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper and the coordinating ribbon bundle in Certainly Celery.

You can see in one of the photo's the clever little secret door on the bottom of the box so you don't have to ruin the top by opening it! Love it Becky!

Next I'll be sharing the great swaps I received in the new catalog/Saleabration swap that we had! Stay tuned!
