A Free Scrapbooking Template

I made this fun page using freebies from the Sunny Daffodils blog train. I had so much fun creating the template before I started, I thought I would share.

Discovering Digital Scrapbooking

Nonnie made this dress a long, long time ago. When we found out we were having a girl, Mommy kindly gifted us with this dress. I was so excited Cadence grew into it just in time for Easter!

I am loving this digital scrapbooking thing. I'm not very good at it yet, but it's something I can quietly do without making a mess! These are brag book pages I made for Tony and I - enjoy! (The supplies are not ones I designed, they were free on the internet from various sources.)

Magnetic Paper Dolls - Church Fun!

I made these for some of the nieces for their birthdays. I don't know if they are having fun with them, but I sure liked them! I will make some for Cadence when she is a little older...

Kristina sent me the link to this tutorial - you can find it here.

Party Hats!

Cadence had a "party" themed party this year. Original huh? ;)

Anyway - at the party all the kids made party hats. Here is my sample:

I set out supplies for each kid. You can see the hat lying flat (blue). I just opened up a store bought hat and traced it, but through trial and error you could get the same shape. When we were done we stapled them shut.

The cake was super easy. It is just a rectangle cake, and I cut circles and strips out of ready to use fondant. The cupcake toppers are miniatures of the hat pattern attached with toothpicks.

Sorry about the blurry invitation pictures - I was using an old camera.
