This boy...

is eleven today. Happy Birthday my sweet Zachary! I hope you have the best day ever!

We are having a super fun sleepover Saturday night with his friends and my parents are flying in from North Carolina on Thursday to spend the weekend with us! It's good to be 11.

ETA: I saved this post last night. Zachary's bday is today, February 25th. Didn't want my family to think I didn't know my own son's birthday.

In my last post I promised some sneaks of the March Kraft Girl Kit so here goes.

Let me say this was an amazingly fun kit to play with! The colors are just so fun and bright. Trust me when I say you will love it! Make sure to stalk the Kraft Girl blog to see sneaks from the rest of the design team too!

Don't forget about the challenge over at Caardvarks. You have until March 3!

Friday randomness...

I am really looking forward to the weekend. It has been a rough week. I have been sick and we have been busy. Sorry, I don't have any layouts to share as I haven't scrapped lately but I did receive my Kraft Girl March kit in the mail yesterday. (click on the link for a sneak peek) I am looking forward to digging right in as this kit is right up my alley! The colors are really fun and it includes some of my fav papers! Look for some sneaks next week.

Speaking of Kraft Girl, they are this month's sponsor over at Caardvarks, a card challenge site. All you have to do is make a card using kraft cardstock. How easy it that? Pam is giving away not one but two November kits as the prize! Hurry, you have until March 3rd!

I leave you with this picture. I know it is poor quality but it sure made one little boy happy. Connor plays in a basketball league for 2nd and 3rd graders through a local Catholic high school. Each team gets a chance to play at half time of a varsity high school game for 8 minutes. Tuesday night was our team's turn and this is a photo of Connor making a basket. He is wearing a green shirt with a grey t-shirt underneath and is to the left of the boy in the green shirt and shorts. I think you can see the smile on his face from the back of his head!

Have a great weekend!

Move over Eddie....

You have some competition. He is four years old and his name is Sheldon. I love preschool!

You might want to check out the Kraft Girl Blog today for a fun giveaway! Does anyone like kraft cardstock? With a few extra goodies thrown in? I thought so.

Ahh, Monday!

Some people hate Mondays. Me...I love them! Everyone is back to school and work and the house is peaceful. I actually got a lot accomplished this morning which is a good thing because with the busy weekend we had, nothing got done!

OK, remember when I posted my Feb Kraft Girl layouts and blogger wouldn't let me post one of them? After many attempts, I just had to take another photo of the page and for some crazy reason it let me post it. I was a bit intimidated to work with the Heidi Swapp butterfly transparency but I like how it turned out. Don't forget to check the Kraft Girl blog for February's sketch challenge!

Last week, I received this cool planner in the mail from my friend Heather. Isn't is the cutest? I so need this for my purse to write down all the things i seem to forget! Love the buttons!
I can't say enough about Heather. She is an absolute sweetheart and such a talented scrapper! I only wish we lived closer so we could see each other more often. Heather, you need to move to the US!

Have a great week everyone!

Kraft Girl February kit.

The February Kraft Girl kit went on sale yesterday. It is a beauty and you can check it out here. These are the layouts I made using the kit. I have one more to share but blogger is being wonky and won't upload it in my post.

Don't you just love the felt butterflies?

Make sure you check out this month's contest too. It is a sketch challenge. Just make a layout using this sketch, email it to Pam and you could win some goodies! While there, please make sure to check out the gallery and see all the fabulous creations from the rest of the DT!
Happy Monday!
