This is P's Bentleyville page. Since all my photos were taken vertically I was worried. I love the way it turned out.
This stamp set is one of the first sets I had ever purchased. So glad I hung onto it.

I got the idea to make the F tag from the Ormolu brand. I made mine using my Silhouette.
I really like how Michelle Wooderson has been stitching on her letters.


This is an example of my six 4"x6" pocket page.

Must check back for a viewing of my Bentleyville page. It turned out so cute.

Little Man Home Sick

Easton stayed home sick yesterday and today I received a phone call from his school around 12:30 to pick him up. I think he ran out of energy from all the fun he was having at school. Yesterday we got some snow and Easton always enjoys watching the city plow out the cul-de-sac. Since I was able to stay home with Easton I found some time to scrapbook.

I had to start a new book for Peyton. I decided to go with a three ring binder style of book so I can just three hole punch some of her art work, school work, etc... and just add it in. So I went with the Doodlebug Storybook Album in pink for Peyton and I also picked up a brown for Easton. The page protector options are 12"x12", 4"x6" with six pockets, or a 6"x12 with three 4"x6" pockets. I am loving it. I also came across (at my local craft store) these American Crafts brand 6"x12" pockets that are a perfect fit with this album. Love it!
I have more pages done and can post tomorrow.

Peyton's Exciting News

After school on Thursday, Peyton was so excited to tell me that her teacher (Mrs. Jensen) asked her to be in accelerated reading. This is the first book she had to read and take a test on. She already brought a new book home on Friday. Funny thing is that she was just asking Mrs. Jensen if she could move over to the "A" group for spelling (easier spelling words) because her spelling words have become a bit more challenging.

A little bit of snow over the weekend.
Grandpa and Grandma came for a visit and were able to take in Peyton's hockey practice. Easton has been sick in bed all weekend. Maybe strep? First test came back negative and we'll hear tomorrow if the second test is positive.
I was just blog hopping and I love Marie's December Daily. Check it out!

Weekend Update

After hockey practice on Friday night we finally woke up to something new. Basketball! Easton is trying out an into to basketball program at our local YMCA. It will run Saturday mornings for the next five weeks. He seemed to enjoy it. Saturday was a busy day for us. After basketball Peyton and I had to make a quick trip to Target for a birthday gift for one of her friends. Got home just in time to make a birthday card and get her off to the party. While she was having fun at her party Easton and I decided to set up all of his cars and count them. 181! I know we have more in the crawl space. After I picked Peyton up from the party Dad had to go and work at the hockey rink. Sunday Peyton had a hockey game and scored another goal. No school today. Just hanging out.

The weather and a scrapbook page

This photo was taken on Tuesday this week. It was so sunny and warm out. 53 degrees and no snow. Two days later and we have a small amount of snow and only 9 degrees at 9 a.m.

Weekend Update

We had a weekend filled with hockey. Peyton had a tournament in Paynsville both Saturday and Sunday. Paynsville is a 40 minute drive from our house. She had noon and 6:00 p.m. games on Saturday and an 11:00 a.m. game on Sunday. We drove back and forth for all the games. She scored one goal on Saturday and played much more aggressively on Sunday.

New Gift

Peyton and I love my new Christmas gift from Pat. They are mini pie makers from Williams and Sonoma. So quick and ez. One side is like a cookie cutter.

They are yummo!

Recent Cards

These are the cards Peyton and I made that we sent out after her birthday and Christmas. A few still need to be mailed. Auntie Cheryl - this last one was the same as the birthday card we made you except a birthday sentiment. Maybe, just maybe, the US post office will find it and deliver it??

Did I tell you...

Did I tell you about my Zimbilly glass? Once again we had a lovely new years at the Bozich house. Janet Bozich and our friend Cindy think Zimmerman (the town they live in) is full of interesting people. So that is how the Zimbilly glass was named. Thank you Janet for my Zimbilly glass I really like it and it also works well in Sauk Rapids.

After Holiday Deals

Michael's Crafts: Christmas photo size envelopes, a fun ribbon, stamp set, sticker that look like wax, stickers, and pads of paper. I know I can use the envelopes, paper, and stickers in my December Daily for next year. They all were under $.50 each. The stamps ($1.99 for the set) included a stamp of a nutcracker. Peyton wanted one in the worst way for Christmas this year. Grandma Pat saved the day on that gift. had the Tim Holtz winter seasonal distress ink 3 pack set on sale. I also stocked up on my mister huey spray mists and couldn't resist the studio calico chip board stickers and die cut sticker.
I think I am ready to start crafting for next Christmas.

Easton's Scrapbook Pages

I took a few minutes to finish up Easton's scrapbook pages that I started a while back.
