Simple, cute and can include candy - perfect for Mother's Day too



Great way to display your kids' artwork - I love the 3D Art letters

I love the vibrancy of this page and how she used bright colors to distress. Plus cute little buttons, perfect for little boys.



How creative to create your own little branches with flowers on the end



Loved this flower especially with the intricate pinwheel design in the middle.




What a great way to use something else to match a room. Love the scalloping here.




I love the large mat and all the ribbon details.
I need to be better at using my ribbon. I get lazy about it.

9th Scrappy Saturdays

This past week was Spring Fling hosted by 4 great blogs at BlogFrog. I had started a BlogFrog account a while ago, but not until the Spring Fling did I decide that it was awesome. If you have BlogFrog, check out my community and if you don't, look into it: http://theblogfrog.com/935825
I'm thinking of hosting Online Crops over there once a month and hopefully getting sponsors to give prizes.

Then on Friday, April 16th, I'll do a post sharing my favorites from Scrappy Saturday- Friday Favorites!


Here is my scrapbook project that I've been working on:  finishing my son's 1st year Scrapbook (a 56+ page calendar scrapbook)! I just have one thing left to do - sew a pocket for one of his ultrasound CDs and then I'm completely finished! Problem is to dig my sewing machine that is surrounded by scrapbook stuff. =D

These are the last of his pages: 8-12 months - it was so hard choosing what pictures to put for each month. Once that was done, embellishing was easy!
