Scrapbook Lunch Box Notes For your Children

School is an exciting time for our kids. As a parent, I always met the first day of school with both anticipation and trepidation. Would my child like her teacher? Would she make friends? Would she be engaged and excited to learn? Would she miss me as much as I would miss her?

To help her (and me) through her first day(s) I would tuck a note inside her lunch box. A sentiment, an “inside” joke, a funny drawing…just to let her know I was thinking about her and make her smile.

January Virtual Crop: Challenge 4

We know that you all love a great sketch.

Sketches have so much life in them.  Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities.  You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.

Sketches are created as a “jumping off” point for you.  They can be interpreted exactly or very loosely.  There are no measurements, so you can make it yours.

This day is just flying by!

So much of Australia is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend!  Here in NSW we are having some very WARM weather this Summer. But, it means that we are longing for Autumn–which we know is realistically a few months away. Before we can think about Autumn, we need to think about Valentine’s Day!  What do you think of when you hear that holiday mentioned?

HEARTS!

Mi Amor Cards!

Today I want to share with you one of my absolute favourite fun folds for making cards. It’s called an easel fold. Every time I’ve given an easel card to a friend or family member they are always received with such awe and amazement – when really, it’s such an easy card to make!

So, I chose to use Mi Amor for these cards because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s sort of fun to go all out and make an extra special, handmade card to show the ones you love just how special they are!
