What a Big Day!

It's Valentine's Day!
I decorated a bit, made heart shaped rice Krispy treats, gave cards and gifts to the family. They gave me cards, gifts and sweet hugs!

A morning at church and a little nap ... then off to dinner with the family... AND Alexander lost his first tooth! He was so upset that he swallowed it (I know, eww!) but he wrote a note to the tooth fairy all by himself and has put it under his pillow! Hope your V day was super special!

Oh, and here's my take on the new sketch up at the card positioning system blog this week!

Here's sketch 154:

June July August - Summer card.
flipped the sketch on the side for this one
patterned paper, diecut shapes, rubons, cardstock- My Mind's Eye

cps 152-new October Afternoon and Nikki Sivils burlap buttons!~

Hey everyone!
I was soooo thrilled that Nikki from Nikki Sivils,Scrapbooker let me take a pack of these darling burlap buttons home! They come in several different colors and are so fantastic!
I used them on the cps card for this week. Paired them with some October Afternoon thrift shop patterned papers and I also used a Fiskars punch that the lovely ladies from Fiskars gave me at CHA... I've never had a border punch before and I was so excited to get one! Thank you again!
