We have a new owner at my local SB store....and I am so happy. Nothing wrong with the other owner, just different styles. Well the new owner's style is more like mine. I didnt get everything I NEED. =) but I cant wait to go back.

Throw back LO

I wanted to share a LO I made about a year ago. My sons had a birthday party and a jumper. Well my youngest almost fell and yelled out "oh sh*t". This was a wake up call for my hubby to watch his mouth around the boys. But the look on my babies face was priceless. TFL

Surprise fairy chunky.

The last page of my mini.

Each tag has a picture and a spot for her to journal on.

A friend of mine that I have known since my high school days in Japan posted some of the prettiest pictures of her daughter dressed in a fairy outfit. When I saw them I just knew what I had to do with them. She has no clue that I'm sending her this mini...hope she enjoys it. TFL
