You won't want to miss a single spring project so make sure you to start at the beginning of spring at Kimberly's blog

And now that we have the formal stuff out of the way here is my project.

I had so much fun doing my project. I have 2 boys so I don't take the time to do too many girly projects. Pastels and flowers really don't scream "boy project" so I decided to make something for my niece.

And here is a close up of the little girls, I need to practice creating faces, these still leave a lot to be desired.

This is a 10 x 10 inch magnetic board for my niece, once I make a trip to the store there will be magnets under the flowers above the girls. I'm a bit of a late addition to the blog hop and didn't take time to run to the store for magnets.
Allee's name is cut from a font I have on my computer. The cute little girls and flowers are from KaDoodle Bug Designs I used quite a few files to get the look I wanted. All the flowers came Home Sweet Hive. I was even able to make the 3-D rose using the flowers from that file. I just love 3-D flowers so I was really excited about that.
The girls came from several different files. The girl on the right in the green dress is from Gameland Bears. This file has a bear in the dress so I used the girl from the Graduation Collection. The other 2 girls are from Princess Carlee and the Frog. Had I looked at the files a little better I would have used Rella the pumpkin princess since she has the same dress and well she's a girl not a bear. For the little girl in the purple dress I used the girl from the Graduation Collection again and I took off the bottom half of the dress.

sweet baby boy card

so Thursday Hubby called to tell me he was swinging by the hospital to see his coworkers new baby. Then he said I need a card for all the guys to sign, do you want to make one or do you want me to pick one up. Of course I'll make one, no problem. Now most cards I make are traditional handmade size (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) so once I say sure I"ll make it there's a huge pause. umm 40 guys need to sign it and have room to leave a comment if they want.
40 guys, he doesn't need a card he needs a mini book so here is my "card" I welded words to the end of each page in the card so there are 5 pages to my card. Plenty of room for 40 men to sign and leave a long comment.
The adorable monkey is from KaDoodle Bug Designs it's in the you're so Sock-able set. This is actually a valentine set so no diaper to be found. I used the diaper and the bottle top from Baby's First Easter. This is another cute set and if I didn't love that monkey so much I would have used the bunny, I could only use the bottle top because the bunny has a carrot bottle. Adorable for the bunny but doesn't make much sense for a monkey. The bottle is actually a rounded rectangle with the sides pulled in a bit.
The design on the paper is stamps from The Angel Company.
