Yes, I do a little scrapbooking!!!  Not much, but I hope to change that this year!  Actually, I recently started a scrapbook club--we meet once a month, and I provide them with a two-page spread to make and take home with them!  This will be a challenge for me, but I'm looking forward to it!!

This spread features Maycee!!  She's almost 3 years old, and is the granddaughter of one my very best and dearest friends.  Isn't she a doll!!!  As a mom of two boys (and no girls!!), I've really enjoyed watching Maycee grow up, and seeing the differences!!  She loves shoes!!!  But, it's so funny because she doesn't like to wear matching shoes!!!  Yep, she insists on wearing two different shoes all the time!!  And, she is sooooo girly--loves all the froo froo stuff!!  But, she can "hang" with the boys when they start to wrestle around!!!  All in all, I think she's perfect!!

Valentine Treats!!

Here's a cute and quick Valentine treat idea!!! 

100_3800_edited1_2 I used the Happy Heart Day Stamp set for the tag, and the Little Pieces stamp set for the background.  I just folded over the Close to Cocoa, and stapled it directly to the M&M's package (treat size).  I stamped everything in Basic Brown, then colored the tag with Pretty in PInk.  I then layered the tag onto Pretty in Pink cardstock,and tied with the Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon!!

Easy Peasy!!
