Hi beautiful crafty friends! WOW it feels so foreign to write up a blog post. So, as some of you know my baby boy was in and out of the hospital had surgery and all sorts of good stuff!!! Well it has been a process to get things back to the way they were and I am happy to report everything is going wonderfully. The house is clean again (that was a chore). Not that daddy didn't pick up but when I was with little man every night and day I never even came home. You mommy's out there understand what I'm saying! ;) And little man is 100% pain free for the last two weeks. We feel so blessed.
With that said I've been trying to get back into my craft room but I felt like our family time was a little out of wack so we are back to normal. YAYYY.
 I'm going to get back into crafting by doing a bunch of fun challenges out there in blog land. AND I just ordered the scrapbooking kit as well as the card making kit from Studio Calico!!! I'm totally in love with them!
Okay so for my first back to crafting I wanted to play along with the challenge over on Emma's blog Christmas Tag.
This little tag is for little man!
 I had seen Emma make a tag similar to this a while back and I just loved it, so I had to case it. Hope you don't mind sweet pea! ;) Aren't those glasses from the What's Growing On? set adorable???? I used the glimmer paper from Stampin up! The inside is filled with glitter and sequin (I HAD to jump on the sequin wagon; too cute) and the sentiment is written with the Stampin' Up! Chalk pen (#132133) And don't you just love that face?!!!!?!!!! It's a Peachy called In The Garden, LOVE!
This one is for the baby girl!
She is so girlie and PINK so she got the cutie pie paper from Nikki Sivils called Gingerbread Land. I think it's last years Christmas paper. It's so pretty!
My big girl!
This was the first one I made and my favorite of the three. I was going to make them all similar to this and decided I would rather make a tag representing their personal taste. So my big girl got the paper from Stampin' Up with a bow on top. ;)
All of the tags are shaker tags. I had to jump on that wagon too. CUTENESS!
The one thing they all have in common is the die from Just Simply Live.
Thank you all so much for stopping by. Hope you are having a blessed week!!!
