I am a happy, happy & proud mom today! Why?
You all know I love my hobby and I do dedicate a lot of time to doing what I love. It is what makes me happy, makes me feel important and I truly love what I do.
I often find myself in my craft room surrounded by children who often want to do exactly what I am doing.
At times it is annoying but at times it is truly fulfilling.
Yesterday was such a day.
I had finished my Authentique Paper sketch challenge and had thought to get my kids in on it.
My 7 yo so, bailed, he just was too stressed about the sketch, being a literal child, he though he had to use the word TITLE in his page and just could not get beyond that!
My 12 yo daughter had a tough time getting started but I help her a little in the beginning and let her know she had to do it on her own, I could not TELL her what to do.
I cut out things on the Expression that she wanted and gave her some tips on adhesives, etc. let her have free rein at MY TABLE!!
Here is the Authentique Paper Sketch for the current challenge:
Well, I am so proud to show you my daughters very 1st layout EVER based on this sketch. Meaning this is the first page she has ever made!
What do you think?
She decided on using the BLISSFUL for her layout.
This is our dog..Tico Torres DeGruccio. He is named after Bon Jovi’s drummer!
The thing about my 12 you making this layout…she said to me when she was working on this, “I finally get why you can do this all day!” I asked her what she meant and she said, “This is just so much fun!” I told her, “I love you and I am so proud of you!” then we both giggled realizing we are both paper junkies!
She had so much fun with her layout, she made this card later in the evening.
She wanted to make sure I put this online also.
This is a card from on of my Deena Ziegler kits that I hoard like a squirrel with food in the winter.
Now, I get to show you my Authentique Paper layout for the Sketch challenge.
I have used products from the line called UNCOMMON.
My younger children and I have a thing for pugs. We adore them!
When my youngest daughter and I took my oldest daughter to Utah to drop her off at BYU, my little one got a chance to meet a cute little pug named Coco.
They instantly connected and I got some cute pictures of them
On the way home we found this adorable polka dot purse with a pug inside and of course could not say no.
The new toy pug is now of course named Coco, after the real Coco.
