Happy Birthday Blocks

I wanted to share my finished "Happy Birthday" blocks.  My friend Emy made some of these and I thought they were so much fun, so she got me the supplies to make some too.  Aren't they fun?

The "Happy" fits perfectly right on top of the "Birthday"!  I chose the paper and paint and I just love the colors.

In our family, we have three birthdays in February, so they will get very well used here soon.  These will work perfectly with my birthday banner and balloon wreath I made earlier (click on the link to see their post).

Fabric Scrapbook


Last Saturday I had fun playing with fabrics and I made a little photo fabric scrapbook.  I was inspired by two blogs Nana Company and Dear Lizzy.  It was a lot of fun to make using things I had on-hand like ribbons, crochet flowers, buttons, ric-rac, etc.

 Picnik is going to be closing soon, so everything right now is free.  I was able to use their premium features to play around with my photos.  Use them while you can until April.

I love the sepia and the 60's feature.

 Of course I had to include Alaina.  I sure do miss her, we all do.  She would be four years old next month.

 Right now I have it on the console in the foyer on display.  It's probably a little girly like most things I make, but it is mostly for me anyways.
