The Paper Variety- Numbers!

This week's challenger at The Paper Variety is to create a layout with a number/numbers... easy peasy for me, since I still have several monthly layouts to make of Isabella.. ;-)
I used two prima butterflies, Prima Bling, Prima Flower, can't remember the paper right now, but I believe it's Echo Park! I also distressed all the egdes.. and used Thicker Alpha...

April Calendar Challenge at Challenge Masters!

I am not the Calendar Diva at Challenge Masters! Please come and JOIN me!

For my first calendar challenge I want you to create a layout with an event that happened in March! It could be a trip to the park, grocery store, getting a new car, trip to coffee shop, meeting with friends, just some event in your daily life! Just needs a date in March as well on it as part of the journaling!

I had two special events in March, Marc's 32nd Birthday and our first Picnic! I included a sample of both! Sorry for the bad pics, my Canon T2i was not working.. My Picnic sample is not as elaborate because Isabella was waking up and very fussy.. so I just threw some buttons on and called it quits...

One lucky participant will also get a RAK from me!

Little Yellow Bicyle Cornflower Ledger PP, White Bazzi CS, White Thickers, Prima Flowers, Prima Swirl, American Craft rose ribbon, birthday rubons, maya road pins, and some shabby goodness..

I used Echo Park PP, some Kraft Bazzil, Misc Buttons, bo bunny swirl and frames and white thickers...

Chopped Week 4!

Chopped Week 4 was due on Saturday! Isabella took a nice 2.5 hour nap on Friday so I was able to clean up and scrap... it's raining, so the light sucked... I used lime green, paint, yellow, scallops, dimensional flowers and white.... I used coredinations paper, cricut paper, Martha Stewart Scalloped Punch, American Crafts Rose Trim, misc Bling, making memories paint, ranger distressed paint, crystal pearls, Prime crystal trim, and misc American Kraft doilies...I painted chip board square and heart, added mini pins, white bazzil cardstock for the picture matting, and I added white doillie rub ons on the paper on top.... I used two type of thicker alpha's...





Some more babyfood!

I love making Isabella her babyfood! I have a Baby Brezza that mom got me, and LOVE IT!! I just cut the veggies or fruit, and then it steams and blends in one! Some foods I can set it to blend on its own... so an awesome little machine!
Here are some foods...Isabella's favorites so far are Prunes, Zucchini, Nectarines.. she also likes bananas.. least favorite Butternut Squash you can see the look on her face in one of the below pics... I started some mixtures this past week.. Turkey/Prune/Thyme was not a success... Pears/Carrots were, since carrots alone she was not fond of!

Yoghurt Making and some mixed Puree Baby Food!

I did my first attempt to make yoghurt this weekend! It turned out pretty good, I added strawberries in mine this morning! As soon as I try this batch, I will start giving it to Isabella! It wasn't all that bad! I also attempted my first real mixed baby food.. the recipe called for Leeks, Sweet Potatoes, Peas and Spinach! Isabella ate it really good so far! I also attempted a Prune/Apple mix... she will try that at school today....

Some more pics!

Here are some more pics I took over the weekend..

This weekend I met with another mommy and did a Spring/Easter Photoshoot! Here are some pics!

Chopped Week 3!

I was SO not impressed with this layout as I was sick and I struggled with it! The ingredients for week 3 were white, stitching and card board!
Here is my take on it!
