Hello! How was your Easter weekend? We had a lovely one. I baked some oatmeal cookies for the boys and I attempted to bake bread too! Let's say it wasn't a complete disaster and the bread was eatible, but it was a bit on the doughy side! I think I added too much liquid somewhere along the way and ended up having to add more flour to make it the right consistency! ;) Well, I'm not giving up on bread just yet. I will try try again and hopefully persavere since it would be cool to bake our bread! I've really been into cooking from scratch these days.

Speaking of making things...I created this hybrid page over the past couple days.

How about these 'Penmanship'

papers? I love 'em! They're from a new digital kit at Two Peas in a Bucket, made by Polka Dot Pixels.

Last year, in 3rd grade, Christopher wrote this poem about roads. It's pretty good and the first one he's written and this kit was perfect for scrapping it! Yesterday my crafty buddy Audrey had a pinwheel card posted on her blog and it reminded me that I haven't used these fun little accents in a while!

The chipboard title letters are old American Crafts' Thickers and the background card is from the digital kit.

I used a couple Spellbinders

dies and a few border punches for this page. Can you believe this? My beloved Wizzard broke! I'm beside myself! I use that die cutter for almost every project! What am I going to do? Do you have a used one you want to get rid of? I've been telling myself this is the perfect excuse to get a Grand Calibur! ;)

Well, I'm off to do something...not sure what. My list of to-dos is plenty long, but none are urgent so I'm not sure which things to tackle first. Heck, maybe I should just say, 'The heck with the list!" Do something fun instead? ;) So what's on your agenda today? Same ol' same ol' or something cool? Whatever it is...make it fabulous! :) Kathy
