A conversation with my 5 yr old after arriving home from her 2nd day of Kindergarten…

Leah: “So Mom, now that I’m in Kindergarten, I don’t have to take naps anymore, right?”

Mom: “You’re going to be very busy with enrichment a couple days a week.  I think you can rest on the other days.”

Leah: “Mom, is rest another word for nap?


Inspiration from your children…

I recently posted some cards that my 5 yr old made.  She continues to inspire me daily – not only in crafting but in many other ways as well.  Here’s a layout that was inspired by her…

Leah made a card a while back using the orange ribbon and she placed the cute frog stickers on top of it.  I loved the color combo and the use of the frogs.  I did the layout quite some time ago and I’m pretty sure I scraplifted it from somewhere.  I apologize that I can’t find the original designer. 

Materials: Cardstock: Bazzill, DMD, Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio, Library Card: Boxer,  Chipboard letters: Scenic Route,  Ribbon: May Arts, Frog Stickers: Sandylion, Bling: Heidi Swapp, Button: Unknown, Other: Dymo label maker

The journaling states: 


You inspire me in more Ways

than you know.  You have

inspired me to be a better Mom,

wife, friend, Christian and person. 

I’m so excited that you seem to

have my passion for crafting. 

One day you created a card for

your soccer coach with this ribbon

and frog stickers on it.  I loved it

and decided to “lift” it for a

scrapbook page. Thank you for

inspiring me.

As you are well aware, Mommy likes to take lots of photos.  This photo was taken at Coffman Park – not too far from our house.  I dressed you up in this beautiful dress (Mommy loves Old Navy and loves to dress-up you and your sisters)and we headed to the park.  You were just about ready to start walking.  Mommy took lots of photos!  This one was taken on the inside of a slide at the playground.  I melted when I saw it.  Your face shows the true innocence of being 12 months old.  You are beautiful baby girl.
