Little Girls are a GIFT!!

I wanted to share a sweet little treat that I made for my Daughter! She had been crying when I left her at school, so we made her a sticker the end of the week if she earns her stickers, she gets a treat. She has not cried in three weeks!
I wanted to show you her treat this week!

I made this sweet scallop card and popcorn box (coming to the store soon) and used my absolute favorite paper....Paper Dolls Collection found at thoughts2paper and the EKSuccess zig zag punch also! I added some eyelets and tulle for the popcorn box, so my Daughter could carry her treats with her. I put in some of her favorite candy...candy necklace and bracelet, ring pop, candy lipsticks (do you remember those?), an ice cream lip gloss and some silly bands ( one of the latest trends)! She was so excited to come home from school to a special sweet treat!!
Have a great weekend!

We all scream for ICE CREAM!!!!!
I just had to share these pictures of my children and my Niece! Mister Softee has found his way into our neighborhood...and we are his best!
The kids were playing in the backyard and my Daughter ran in screaming that the ice cream man was coming...out the front door she ran followed by my Son and my Niece! I was frantically looking for my where to be found...I ran out to the car...not there. Here I am thinking that I lost my wallet and now I have to disappoint the kids and tell them no ice cream. So I tell my Daughter that I can't find my wallet and she says,"don't worry Mommy, I have it!" That's right...she grabbed my wallet as she was running out the front door screaming! I had a little chat with her after they all got their ice cream. Now check out the double cone that my Daughter Samantha got...yum yum!!! Now to get through the summer with trying to dodge the ice cream!!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

The 5th of how time flies! Happy Cinco de Mayo!! I hope you are all enjoying your day today! I met my SIL for lunch and shopping! We are planning my in laws Anniversary party in June so we were going over the details and buying the centerpieces! So, while I was out shopping, I picked up the Toothfairy movie for the kids and got some boxes of candy and popcorn. I immediately thought of my cricut....Designer's Calendar cartridge! I came home and quickly decorated a bag with Cinco de Mayo and some cute decorations. I bought some 1x8 bags on ebay and filled them with skittles and added a little tag! The kids were super excited to come home to a treat for Cinco de Mayo! I hope you all have a great day!
