Puzzles with Papo

My parents came to visit for a few days. Micaela had a ball with my Dad putting puzzles together. I don't think my Dad had worked on a puzzle in well over 30-something years, it was so cute to watch Micaela helping Dad through the whole "process".

This puzzle is so neat, the whole alphabet and it's 30 feet long. I got this on sale at Target when Micaela was a baby and now I wish I had purchased a dozen of them for gifts.

Valentine Day Treats

These are the Valentine treats Micaela and I made for her classmates at both schools.

For the Spanish school we wrapped PINK Little Debbie rice crispy treats with a heart patterned scrapbook paper, added a sheer ribbon bow and a simple little label I did on the computer.

For the church school, we did little canisters of Play-Doh. We wrapped the cans with the same heart patterned scrapbook paper and added a scallopped label on the top. The kids enjoyed these and I was really glad to skip the sweets!

Thanks for stopping by....

Perfect Book for Valentine's Day

Here's one of the books I got Micaela for Valentine's Day. The Night Before Valentine's Day by Natasha Wing. It's a take off on the famous poem by Clement C. Moore's Night Before Christmas.
Needless to say she loves it and we've read it over and over and over. I can pretty much read it with my eyes closed. This was our first Natasha Wing book and already I have purchased the Easter one. We highly recommend this one!

Sweet Stems Card

Here's a very simple card using the new Sweet Stems stamp set. I got the original idea for this card from Jill, you can see her card here. I changed the pink on mine to Pink Passion and added a sentiment from Heard from the Heart.

I added a simple white layer on the inside and stamped a few more flowers. Hope you are having a good day-- thanks for stopping by.
