2 New Pages for School Scrapbook

Band Demo Assembly-this page was fun because I was challenged to find music related things for the layout. I finally got to use my Cuttlebug embossing folder "Allegro" It looks like a sheet of music I ripped out of a notebook well, sorta! I used the notebook tab punch from SU.
The violin was cut from "A Child's Year" cart- under the icon tab. The girl playing the recorder was also cut from the same cart. I love this cart-it's so useful for children of all ages. The background paper I used on that page was from "My Minds Eye Academy" slab - for storytellers and phototakers-Glitter Book. Ooh-what great papers!
The title was cut from "Plantin Schoolbook"

Raising of Flag -The photos were on the busy side so I matted everything on more of a solid (well repetitive stars fall into that category for me today ; ) ) background to rest the eyes a bit. The star paper was already cut to that shape-it came from Target. It was a gift to me from a friend for having her over for 4th of July. The stars were punched with a CM punch and I added a food flag pick to finish it off! The title was cut from "Plantin Schoolbook" in Shadow feature.

Nothing crazy detailed but thought I'd share what I'm up to these days.

Holy Family School Scrapbook

Just wanted to post of few pics of a 2 page layout I made for a school scrapbook. It's the 2nd and 3rd page so far. "First Day of School" and "First Lunch". Nothing crazy here because it's an extensive project and it's needs to be turned in by Nov 7th so I am just putting a few accents on each page but really want to keep the focus on the kids and the events. It's just fun playing with my supplies and finally getting a chance to use some stash up. I love the "me & my BIG ideas" slab-it's all about school and primary colors. Perfect for this project.

Thanks for checking it out!

Pirate Treats

Today is my son's 6th birthday so I made treats for him to take to school for his teachers. They are Oreos covered in chocolate. What a fun mold to use. It is policy at his school to provide safe snacks (peanut free) as opposed to baking from home. This is to ensure the safety of the children with allergies. Oreos are safe and so is the Wilton chocolate I used to cover the cookies, but I sent in Rice Krispy treats and Cheez-its instead. I am kinda grateful I didn't need to make 21 of these! They sure look cute though! I didn't have a food paintbrush to detail the spider or skull in a contrasting color but they came out ok anyway I think. I went to my local grocery store and bought the little clear boxes with lids (for olives) to hold the treats. Perfect size for a "little snacky snacky" and cute and easy to decorate too! The tag I made was from the
"Kitchen Circle Words" set purchased at the Cutting Cafe. I used a SU circle punch (1 3/8") and then backed it with the SU scallop punch in red. The skull gem was from Michaels dollar section.

All things pirate right now!! Arrrr!

Thanks for checking them out ; )
