Welcome, Little Chick

It's been a little while since I've posted a project. Last week was just one of those weeks. There was much to do and I couldn't seem to find any time for creativity. I vow to be better this week. I really feel crummy when I don't do at least a little something creative and last week I was feeling it. But Saturday, I went to a little crop and ended up helping a girl in my ward make her first scrapbook page and I think I may have created a monster. Let's just say, all her hard earned babysitting money has been used in supplies. She is so excited. I also may have purchased a few pieces of paper myself. Making Memories' "Flower Patch" line just hit the shelves around here and I found it quite inspiring. My entire family is pretty excited to be welcoming another girl into our family. My brother and his wife are expecting a girl and our family hasn't had a girl baby for almost 8 years, when my daughter was born. My daughter is my parent's only girl grandchild. They have 6 boys and 1 girl. Needless to say, we are all thinking pink. Even the boys. It's pretty exciting. She should be here sometime around the end of March.
This little card uses (you guessed it) Doodlebug's white embossed dot cardstock and glitter paper. Making Memories "Flower Patch" paper and letter stickers. Tim Holtz pink distressing ink. And a little blue jewel from Kaisercraft. The little chick is my own design.
I plan to do a little more work in the "Flower Patch" today. But first, the dryer just called my name so I'd better go before I become all wrinkled. :) Have a good one and think pink!

  1. Congrats to your brother! Han and Hal were the only girls in 8 grandkids and thankfully my brother and his wife are having a girl too this summer! That's cute about the little girl in your ward...that's why I don't do that kinda stuff. You seem to be really good at "prioritzing"...I think my house,the kids, and John would go to hell in a hand basket cause that's all I'd do! My clothes would never even make it to the dryer! So you keep up the awesome work and I'll just admire and wish I was like you! I also wanted to tell you I got online and watched the news piece on the backpack program! Can I just say you made me cry!!! I am so proud of you! You are truly awesome! I just thought of those kids all weekend and how grateful and wonderful it was for them to have food and all because of you and a great team of volunteers! Oh I am so glad I found you and your's great keeping in contact and seeing all the great things you do and create! One day we HAVE GOT to make some time and go to lunch! But know I ♥ ya and love all you do!
