A quick peek at what's on my desk this week. My best friends little boy turns 2 next week and has a thing for dinosaurs and I happen to know he will be getting some new dinosaur toys too, so what's a girl to do but make a dinosaur card.
Something quick and simple - scrapbooking paper from my stash (I'm afraid I'm not organised enough to be able to tell you who it's by though) was used to make the leaf background and a spotty dinosaur was cut with the sizzix. A few extra leaves were cut and 3d foam pads were used to stick them on and the dinosaur. I printed the birthday sentiment onto plain paper with brown text and a green border then mounted it onto plain brown card stock, again 3d pads were used to adhere this to the card.
I have to admit I got a bit sidetracked while the laptop was on and entered the world of pinterest. As a result I've made a start on some weekly to do charts that I've been thinking about making and printed off a set for me and a set for baby bug 1 to help us remember what day to pack the PE kit and other such important information.
The cards I've used are actually journalling cards (from yellow umbrella designs) but I printed and laminated them and am hoping to use a whiteboard marker to write on them, just need to find a way of keeping them together and keeping them accessible.
I also came across what looks like a really good blog planner.
My posts seem to be a bit sporadic to say the least, so maybe with the help of this I can be a bit more organised with my blog - I've printed it off so that's a start, but the proof will be in the blog so to speak! So that's what's gracing my desk this week, off to pay a visit to Julia now and see what everyone else has been up to.
