Kids back in school? Check! So glad to finally get back in a routine. We stayed home over spring break - everyone had the flu - finally getting back to normal. Don't get me wrong - I love when the kids are home - but I feel so guilty when I sneak off to do a little crafting. I have such a hard time sitting for hours watching TV or movies - hopefully they don't notice when I disappear!
Today I'm playing along with the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. There is a challenge twice a month - this time it's to make a baby card or project. I usually start thinking soft pinks and blues when I think of baby but what tripped me up was the teddy bear. When my son was born he received the softest velour teddy that was his bedtime buddy for years (Sorry Tut!! I know ... so embarrassing!!). The teddy was dressed in primary colors - so bright and cheerful. Memories of good times!
I love the "snips and snails" sentiment - Serendipity also has the "sugar and spice" for the little ladies too! Here's my finished card...Check out what the rest of the design team came up with for this challenge and see some of the other wonderful nostalgic images Serendipity Stamps has to offer.
