Future Fireman!

Can I say that Precious Piecings has some awesome little boy patterns!
My little boy is 5 and he loves playing dress up. He loves playing fireman, batman, spiderman, avatar, policeman...I think you get the big picture. LOL



This week I decided to make a border set using Precious Piecings Pattern #'s 785 Fireman and #786 Firetruck.

Of course I used my favorite cardstock from DCWV. Don't they just have the most versatile paper stacks?
I also used chipboard stickers from K*I Memories- Little Guy Chip Button stickers.

Come bid on this set, just click HERE to be taken directly to ebay.  I really appreciate all of my followers. Thanks for dropping in and come back again soon. I've missed you all. Leave me comments. I love hearing from you!!

Missing in action

Hey Everyone. Sorry I've been missing in action. I had the unfortunate call of another surgery that has landed me flat on my behind the last 2 weeks. I'm still not up to my normal self, but working on it.
I had a port revision on April 5th because my port had flipped up on its side and was not accessible for my first fill in March. This has been a long hard process for me. Not sure that I would consider lap band surgery again or not. The port revision only happens in 2% of individuals and I just happen to be in that 2%. Lucky me!

Just a quick little update. My next post I'll show you what I've been working on this week. It took all week to complete, but I love the way it turned out.

Blessings.

It's raining men or in this case Boys!

Hello and thanks for stopping by today. This week we had a "It's raining men", challenge at Precious Piecings. But in my case it's raining boys! After going so long without any children of my own and having 3 wonderful, beautiful and talented nieces to scrapbook, it's refreshing working on little boy stuff. Don't get me wrong, I love the color pink and adore working with it. There's just something about creating for a little boy. Precious Piecings is so versatile, so many patterns to choose from.

When deciding to make my title topper I thought about my son Steven and all the fun he has playing with Max. Poor Max, he takes about anything that kid dishes out. On occassion I've caught Steven pulling him around by his tail.
So, I used Precious Piecing pattern # 377 Puppy Dog Tails.
Stop on over at Precious Piecings and get your patterns today, you'll love how easy they are to put together.
Thanks for stopping in today.
I appreciate your visit.
Blessings.
