Hey all, Delicious Scraps has a new kit called "Love is..." and I wanted to share with you the LO that I made, Anna really liked it so with her permission I have also turned it into a free Quick Page for you. Stop by her new store to pick up this kit and some other new items, for a short time everything is only $1. This is a great kit full of romantic elements, but it is not just for romance as you can see by my layout about love between brothers.

Kid's Create

Well my kids have been bugging me about letting them help to create a layout about themselves so it has finally been done, I suggested some kit choices, they picked the ones they wanted to use and the elements and paper. I walked Alexa (10) thru completing hers herself, I started the boys and then let them place and size some of the elements since they are only 6 and 5.
Ready, here you go. Please leave them some luv so they will want to continue to be creative in their lives.

This is Alexa's she choose not to use a picture but just use her favorite color and one of her two favorite animals. The kit is Ellie's Elephants/by julie c at SAS.

This is my youngest's Jaden who is 5, and he definately fits the theme, kit is cheekycharliemonkey by julie c at SAS:

And this is what Gavin the middle one choose, kit is "It's a boy's world" by Sweet Blossom Designs

LO to share

Remember when I won the Teen Crush kit from Sunshine Studios, here are two layouts I made with it.

This was taken at a Fall Festival when all the kids were actually getting along:)

I liked the shillouetted look of my son throwing leaves in the air. Alpha/arrow altered from kit.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Will be back with more LO's soon.

Kids do say the darndest things.

Kids do say the darndest things don't they. Last night my husband asked out youngest what he learned in school (he is in pre-K due to a winter birthday)..also pictured in the mitten layout.. He said does everyone know how to read like you do? Jaden answered, "Well, they are all doing OK now but I AM the SMARTEST" so my husband then asked "why". Jaden then said -"today we were learning about the letter "O" and I was the only one who knew ALL the pictures and the only one who know what an ostrich was. then boys will be boys, Jaden and his brother were playing some kind of game where one of them was "hurt" and the other was taking them to the hospital, after my husband went upstairs for something Jaden decided he wanted to cuddle with Daddy. My husband said I thought you were playing with Gavin where Jaden promptly with a deadpan face looked at Gavin and said "you're dead, you died" Where do they get all this from?? Little ears can hear the quiestest things I think. What do you think, leave a comment sharing some of your funny moments with your kids.
