Cute little bunny butt envelopes I stole off the internet

And I'm so happy I found this idea for the grands
and I had all the supplies on hand
and busted some stash.
Total win-win.
And ain't they stinkin' adorable.
So I glued their butts to the front of the envelope
in order to tuck something behind.
 Thanks to my pal Holli - when I indicated that
I wanted some type of carrot thing to 
tuck in so it would look like the bunny was
jumping in after it she told me
about these reeses pieces carrots.
I pondered a real carrot for a brief moment
 but that would be mean
for Easter lol.
So I debated in the store because the carrots are
huge but figured no harm no foul
if they didn't fit.
But they did fit sort of.
Now to mail them off in time.
I made 12 of them - 10 for the grands
and the other 2 for my two nieces that will be
at our house for Easter.
I love the internet.

February Faux Travel Journal Entries

 Well by the look of my faux journal it wasn't a 
very happening month.
Although to be honest I'm still dithering about as
to what I really want to put in there/out there?
I do keep a diary type journal that I'm way more chattier
than I sometimes need to be.
Know what I mean?
In fact, it's sad that a couple of these entries are totally
out of order, but hey 'tis done.
And it's my faux journal so I'm thinking at least
I got the entries in there.
My goal is to use the entries for those things we did,
or didn't do, or photos that really don't need pages.
I'm at the point where I'm considering 
building a wing on our house just to store my albums.

Basic Grey, Studio Calico, bits and pieces.
March should be a little livelier!!
I think.

Random photos in one page

I've been getting into pocket pages and I absolutely love doing them.
Not all the time, but this past week and especially the
weekend my mojo done took a hike so
I've been reading and doing other
things because sometimes just stepping back helps.
Of course I stalk the videos too which I love too.

Anyhoo, I had all these photos chosen and printed and
they were getting overwhelming since I couldn't make a decision on anything
so then I had this brilliant
idea to just stick them all in a pocket page.
Shocking, I know, that it took awhile to think that one up. LOL.
But, I found that I had either scrapped them before
some going in other albums OR I really didn't have a story.
Not that I need a story but sometimes the story helps in the page design.
It happened that I got all the grandkids on one page
AND my two kidlets.
How cool is that.
And I really like the randomness of the pocket pages.

I used some Tim Holtz stuff, WRMK PL cards
there is Studio Calico bits, punched hearts, QK and Mambi.

A Tuesday Kind of Love

Love the cluster that came together for this page
from Tim Holtz. It just worked out
and gave this a sort of monochromatic type look.
 So Tuesday is the newest member in my granddaughter
Amelia's family and she looks to be a beautiful,
sweet Weimaraner.
Adjusting nicely both are settling in for a nap.
I could use a nap.
I love naps.
I need a dog with my naps too.

Studio Calico, Tim Holtz, Mambi alphas.

Vegetable netting as a mat

My pal Holli got me this prize of Jillybean Soup embellishments
and they work perfectly with this page.
I am loving this cluster.
 I had all kinds of things going on as a mat when I
noticed this veggie bag netting laying around on my desk.
Normally I use the netting as a "stencil" but
when I put it behind the photo it just looked very cool as a mat layer.
Added some watercolors for background color
and just love how it turned out.

Lou checking out the grass.

Studio calico, Jillybean Soup, watercolors, netting.
