Mary Grace

I've been busy scrapping this week. Taking advantage of Trey being home, and us having to stay put. I have gotten done a total of 5 double 12x12 layouts, so I'm pretty pleased with that. I ran out of tape today. I finished up my last page with glue, and called it quits. I had wanted to create a card, but with no tape, was out of luck! Not wanting to waste this time glued to the house, I worked on a project for Gabi's third grade teacher. She's expecting a little girl in Nov, and is naming her Mary Grace.


I had found these blocks at Michaels on clearance. I'm taking cheap! Barb would be jealous! I'm a Frugalista, too, like her! I think that's what the Target ad is saying lately. I was so excited about the price when I found the blocks, that I grabbed every set off the shelf! LOL! The buttons, primas, brads, scrappers floss, and stickles were from my stash. I grabbed the paper because I liked the colors better than the kid paper I had on hand. I grabbed the charms ages ago for another project, and didn't use them. The stamps are from a retired SU set. Isn't this just a darling baby gift?!

I made a set two years ago for Trey's male teacher in Kindergarten. He displays them in his room, which I think is very cool! Anyhow, so I spent the day making these and decorating them for her room! I made her teacher this gift last year, and she loved it, so I know she's gonna love this project, too! I can't wait to give it to her on Monday!

Thanks for stopping by!
