I made this cute double page layout to enter in 2 different challenges. The owl paper piecing is from the I Love Hoo You Are Set by Paper Piecings by Nikki. This file and many other adorable ones can be purchased at www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com. She also holds weekly challenges on facebook where you can win free patterns. The challenges I entered are at Getting Cricky http://www.gettingcricky.com/2012/04/getting-cricky-simply-sunday-challenge.html where you were to use an owl and something recycled. The mats are 3 layers and the middle layer is paper bag from a recent scrapping supply shopping trip. The small ties and the wide ones on the photo mats are made from the bag handles. I unwound the thin paper that is rolled up to make the handles and cut it in strips. The other challenge I entered was the anything goes challenge for Paper Playtime. http://www.paperplaytime.blogspot.com/ I really had fun making this layout and I love working with Nikki's cute patterns! What great challenge ideas!
I live in the world of grandbabies. My world revolves around my babies. I am so blessed that 3 of the grandbabies (oh ya and their parents too ..lol) live on the opposite end of our house. They give Nana a reason to get out of bed in the morning! My other grandbabies come and visit too, and Nana loves having them visit too! Everyone that said grandbabies are more fun than your own children were right. All this time I thought they were crazy, until I got my first grandbaby. I am still in awe over how much you can love a child that you didn't give birth to. Of course I love my daughters too, but not near as much as my grandbabies! lol Nana loves you Kaylee, Allan, Clayton, Isabel, and Keegan!
