My granddaughter loves to bake with her Dad and of course the bonus is licking the beaters when he is making a cake.     This cake was for her 3rd birthday and of course she wanted to help.   She got to lick from the chocolate layer and from the vanilla.    A double bonus.

I made this for the February Pick 3 challenge at  "SOUL-SCRAPPERS"   Pick 3 challenge.
My 3 from the list below is   Four or more photos, Large letter title and Journaling.

 I took pictures of two of the Christmas projects Elle made at Day Care.    The teachers laminated them for the kids to take home to their parents,   I thought they were so cute.

This is my week for my layout reveal for Sketch #409 at  "SKETCHES IN THYME"
I hope you will take the time to check out this sketch and all the other sketches for the month and have fun creating.

Playing Christmas Carols

The last few days I've been trying to fill in pages on my 2019 Christmas album.   My 2 year old granddaughter Elle always likes to play the piano with her Papa, her great-grandfather.   So at Christmas this year it was no different.    It might not be real songs just hitting the piano keys but she loves it when we all come in to listen to her "play"

I used the new challenge at  "SCRAP OUR STASH"   It's a sketch challenge and you have to use Polka Dot paper (my green background paper and Washi Tape (the thin gold stripe above and below
the red music paper is Washi Tape.

Love Us

Still catching up on some Christmas layouts from this past Christmas.   My hubby and I don't get a lot of pictures taken of us together since I'm the main picture taker, but I handed over the camera to someone else to snap a couple of pictures of us and I'm glad I did.  I enjoyed making this layout to add to my Christmas album.

I used Sketch #408 at  "SKETCHES IN THYME"  for this layout.   I had all the papers laid out but then I went back and matted the 3 rectangle pieces so they would stand out a little bit better.

Gigi is Sick

Elle got a Doctors Kit for her birthday and I was her first patient,  I got checked all over,  some medicine, some bandaids, the whole kit was used.    Then after all human patients had been checked out then Malette the cat was next in line to become her patient.

I'm entering this at  "LASTING MEMORIES"  their Challenge #484  is "Once Loved, Now
Forgotten - Stamps"    I probably haven't done any stamps on a layout but perhaps twice in the
last 10 years.   On this one,  I stamped 3 speech bubbles and then cut them out and wrote in each one about the picture.
