Random craftiness

Just a few crafty things I have been working on or involved in lately.
I finally finished my Valentine's crafts. Aubrey and I made his class Valentines. I didn't think of it myself, but I got plastic shovels and made tags that said, "I Dig You" and put them in a cello bag with conversation hearts. I tied it with ric rac and they turned out so cute. Aubrey was so excited to give them to his friends. He is in a pre-school class of 6 boys, so this was perfect for them.

I also decorated red pillar candles. I gave one to Aubrey's teacher for Valentine's Day. I just took ric rac and ribbon and secured them with thumb tacks in the back. So easy, but a cute decoration for the holiday.

I finally finished my Valentine garland. I hung it up on Valentine's Day, so it got a little use this year. Next year it will be out for the whole season.

Aubrey and Grandma Bonnie made homemade sugar Valentine cookies. It was a fun day for all of us.

Also, on the scrap front, I was so honored to be featured on Becky Fleck's Pagemaps site. She posts sketches of layouts, cards, tags, and others on her site. Then she has others use the sketches to make them and posts them on her site. I am featured here in the tagmaps section for February. I was so excited to do this! So go check it out. The whole site is great.

Then, last week I found out I won a contest on Stephanie Howell's blog. I love Stephanie Howell's scrap style, and her blog is so much fun. So it was a special surprise. I won an entry into the Product Pizzazz class at Get it Scrapped. I am enjoying it a lot. There are all kinds of great classes over there, so run over and sign up for something. You will be glad you did!

And finally, I just finished my layout for the ScrapWhispers blog. It's basically like the game "Telephone" where someone tells someone a secret and it's passed along, but this is with scrapbook layouts instead of secrets. There are 6 teams, and the team who stays closest to the original layout wins the round. I can't wait to see how our team turns out. I had a great time doing my layout.

I will have more kid pics this week, since we are having a fun, long weekend. Happy President's Day!
