Back in February, the girls got to come with me to the hair salon. It was their first time ever having their hair cut in a salon. Before then, my mom trimmed their hair. Both the girls did awesome! There was no trouble at all. And, there was no trouble at all letting them run around the salon while A and I were having our hair done- we were the only ones there! C had given us the ok way beforehand, so it was just perfect!
Of course, I had to make a layout about their adventure at the hair salon. I dusted off my cricut, and cut out the 'love' and 'beyond' in kraft paper. Then, I added layer upon layer of paper, added a cute little paper button from Jillibean, a little bit of journalling underneath the photos, and VOILA! (And, just a note, the cream colored patterned paper underneath 'beyond' is actually packaging from embellishments!)
Jillibean Soup: card stock embellishment (Country Pumpkin collection)
Carta Bella: blue alphas (from the So Noted collection)
Recollections: yellow lattice patterned paper (lattice collection), purple card stock (jewel collection), kraft card stock
Adhesives: 3D dots, herma vario tape
Misc: all other patterned papers
The only elements that aren't left overs, is the red card stock, the background brown card stock, and the embellishments!
The kids kept themselves pretty well entertained while A and I had our hair done at the salon. They both picked up a blow dryer and sang 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' into it- and kept returning to it if they got bored with anything else while we were there. It was too cute to pass up scrapping!
Jillibean Soup: red patterned paper (Winter Tortellini collection)
Carta Bella: adorable sticker and embellishments (all from the So Noted collection)
Recollections: building patterned paper (My favorite Things collection); kraft card stock, brown card stock (Preppy Beach), red card stock
Adhesives: herma vario, 3D dots
Misc: packaging strip of patterned paper
I had seen adorable stuffy toys at Walmart, and I though they'd be perfect for the kids, so Kyle went and picked up a cute little pillow and teddy bear for the kids, as well as a bit of chocolate. I made cupcakes for all of us, and he bought me some chocolate of my own. Mmmmm....it didn't last long LOL
I wanted to pick up the glitter on the cupcakes, so used up some glitter foam as a background accent on this layout. I also wanted to repeat the red and pink hues throughout, so I found some cute K&Co designer paper in my stash (Sleepy Tree collection), and threw that behind the pink glitter foam.
K&Co: dove patterned paper (Sleepy Tree); polka dot patterned paper (Sweet Nectar 6x6 paper pad)
Carta Bella: title, sticker embellishments (So Noted)
SU: cameo coral ink (inking around edge of circle embellishment)
Adhesives: glue dots, herma vario tape, 3D dots
(And, for good measure, she also had to tell me that this layout isn't pretty enough. When I told her that I wasn't done with it, she told me "that's a good idea". Oh, my girl!!! The chuckles never end where she's concerned!)
K&CO: patterned paper (Sweet Nectar 6x6 paper pad)
Colorbok: both green card stocks
Recollections: orange card stock (Spice Market), kraft card stock
SU: More Mustard ink
Adhesives: 3D dots, herma vario tape
Misc: cricut (for title), cream punched border, cling mounted journalling spot stamp, corner rounder punch
Also, if you haven't done so already, I've been added to a new group on Facebook thats especially for Work at Home Moms that have their own small business (that's crafty in nature); if you live (and, by extension) work in the province of Alberta, add yourself to this directory. If you're on the search for a unique, handmade gift, you'll find a wide variety of sewn, jewelry and knitted goods; you'll be sure to find what you're looking for there! HERE is the link. I've also created a new page on my website for great businesses and other 'finds' to check out in and around the province of Alberta. As of right now, the only item listed there is this group page, but if you know of something else that should be added, let me know!
Till tomorrow, thanks for dropping by!
