This was so much fun. If you look at the photos, I decorated my table with all kinds of St. Patty's Day decorations and made green dinner etc. for my family. The fun thing is that the same decorations are now on my scrapbook page. Two birds with one stone as the saying goes. LOL. Makes for a fun dinner and a quick scrapbook page to remember it by. Gotta love that! These cute little files were from Designs on Cloud 9. Sadly, she is no longer in business but I had these little cuties so I pulled them out and put them to use.

I am going to a scrapbook retreat in about a month and we do a secret sister exchange. I decided I'd better get started because I have a lot coming up in the next month also. So I decided to take one of the caddy essentials boxes from a collection from My Scrap Chick and make this cute little box. The I used a cute sundae file from KaDoodle Bug Designs to make the cute little sundae. I think it turned out cute. I'm going to make a card and also one of those Sundae's made with a cup, loofa, and straw to go with it. Maybe some chocolates to go in the box. This lady is new to our group so I've never met her before. Here's to hoping she likes it! Here's a couple challenges to enter it into also.

I won some files from Too Cute by Jessica and loved these little girls. This is actually a cancer set, however, I just changed the color she is wearing and she becomes just a girl. I decided to make these the other day along with 4 of these cards. So I decided to put her on one of them and I think she looks cute! I like having extra cards around so that I can quickly give one for whatever reason. I think someone will like her!

Aren't these cute little froggies adorable! I just knew they needed to go on a 4th of July layout or two. LOL. They are Kristi W. Designs files and oh so cute. I even did them as a print and cut. Lovin' them! Thought I would enter it into a red white and blue challenge with some green of course for those cute little frogs! LOL.

They are doing a Christmas in July challenge and so I decided to join. For Christmas a few years ago (yes, I know I am behind) I did 12 days of Christmas for my hubby. It was fun. I decorated his car, gave him homemade treats, cards, gifts etc. It was a fun way to make sure he felt special in the hustle and bustle of the season. He loved it so much the next year we decided to do it for his brother who had recently gotten divorced and who was alone for Christmas. I ended up doing it for my hubby too as they have similar interests so it was fun to do it for both of them. It takes a lot of planning in advance because December is just too busy to try to do it last minute with everything else going on, but they both loved it. It's been a couple of years....maybe I should do it again this year.
