{Fun New Layout}

Using paper from echo park the walk in the park line

{Cover of an Scrapbook Trends Issue}

I was fortunate enough to get chosen for the cover of this scrapbook magazine Scrapbook Trends. designing for echo park paper they offered me a chance to turn something in for the decmeber issue, and i was chosen! and here is the first preview of what my cover issue looks like! :) it's so exciting and such a great opportunity. I've been featured on a cover in a UK issue of cards but this is my first layout in a mag, let alone a cover and in the US at that! so i feel so blessed to have been chosen! They also asked for a head shot which will be featured in the mag with a description of my layout spread inside as well! :)

The inside spread with my picture in it ! never had that before! totally fun!

{Felt Tooth Buddy}

Using felt, fabri-tac glue rhinestones and ric rac, jaxson designed a fabulous tooth holder to stick under his pillow for the tooth fairy! this is a fun tradition we've started and i love it! they are always so excited to get their tooth buddy to put their teeth in for the tooth fairy! I let the kids pick what they want them to look like and we make it work! i love how jaxson's turned out! fun fun project. Fast and easy too!
with a pocket between the layers of felt it's the perfect size to fit teeth and the money from the tooth fairy! i made the pocket out of a small rectangle of felt folded in half and glued in between ... just big enough to hold the money and still let some peek out for waking eyes!
