March Madness

I cannot believe we are halfway through March. Now, I know the term March Madness is typically used for the NCAA basketball tournaments, but I feel like March Madness is sweeping through my house.  Spring is emerging, the weather is lovely. It is time to play outdoors, cookout on the grill, and clean the yard. Spring also means tons of kids activities. We are always on the go with baseball, dance class, swim lessons, oh and school fits in there somewhere. So when the kids go to bed and I need to relax I have been making cards. Stamping is therapeutic. You should definitely try it! I will share some of my latest cards soon.

For today I will share a fun card that Kathy taught me how to make. I was so excited when she showed me the reflection technique. It is so easy! Who knew that you could create this magic with window sheets, sticky notes and a brayer!

-March Photo-A-Day-

  • Day 1. Up - The lantern is hung up above my stampin' table. So when I am cutting paper and using my Big Shot it lights up my area.
  • Day 2. Fruit - Bananas and oranges. My kiddos asked for them at the grocery store. They pretended that they were going to eat them. I think they each ate one. I guess that is better than none! 
  • Day 3. Your Neighborhood- This is a photo looking down my block. I love my little neighborhood. It is old and established, I am close to the highway and 7-11. I need to have my slurpee fix! I am also less than ten minutes away from My Man, my parents, sister, grandparents, aunt and uncle and cousins.
  • Day 4. Bedside - I have lotion, chapstick, a book, allergy medicine, a candle, and a glass of water. I bet there are also little toys hidden behind the book. 

  • Day 5. A Smile- My Girl, always smiling! I love her. She always puts a smile on my face in return.
  • Day 6. 5pm - I was driving to take My Girl to dance class. I spend a lot of time in my car!
  • Day 7. Something you wore - These are the earrings I wore that day. I was sick and so I will not share how awful I looked, but I did manage to throw on my favorite earrings.
  • Day 8. Window - The windows at La Loma. One of our favorite mexican restaurants. This place has lots of character.
Happy Friday! What are you taking pictures of these days?
