First Monday of March??

WOW, what in the world happened to February? Why is it that 2-3 days fewer in a month makes it seem like the month is over in a blink of an eye? These are just the things I ponder lol!

More importantly, with all that has been going on (birthdays, sickies, Kindergarten registrations) I missed blogging last week. So I am starting this week off right, with lots to share.

First up is this week's ScrapTiffany challenge. This week the challenge is to use buttons. Not a stretch for me, buttons are one of my go to embellishments. I have them in a myriad of colors, sizes and shapes. For this layout, I used buttons in my 2 favorite ways.

I love replacing O's in the title with big buttons.



And I love button borders.



All the papers are Jillibean Soup. I cut their Sprouts journaling spots in half for a fun scallop border and used their large green buttons for the title. I can't get enough of that yellow polka dot patterned paper. Gonna have to go get some more :)

Go on over to ScrapTiffany and see the other fun button projects. They are seriously all fabulous, run ideas. And if you take the button challenge, email it to Tiffany HERE.

And now, since it is March 1st, I can finally share the projects I have been working on for Serendipity Scrapbooks. The March 2010 I Deserve it All kit is being released today and can I just say how over the top GORGEOUS it is. It feautures a ton of Basic Grey Origins and several perfectly coordinated patterned papers exclusive to and designed by Kristen of Serendipity Scrapbooks. The colors and patterns are so rich and exquisite. The kit also includes a bunch of the Origins embellishments, some Coredinations cardstock, wood buttons, Kaiser rubons, yellow Shimmerz and some other fun goodies. Check the kit out here.

Without further ado, here are the projects I have made so far:













And I said, "what I've made so far..." because I seriously have more to create with! Go on over to the gallery and see what the rest of the DT has done---tons of gorgeous projects.

Well, my space is just about 100% moved into our bedroom and I have to say I am liking my new set up. I bought one of these cubes from Target 


(thanks Jenn---now I am officially addicted to these cubes and they are multiplying in our house!) and put it in our closet to keep all my goodies out of reach from little grabby hands.  

And the last bit of big news is that I registered this one for Kindergarten today!


 We found a charter school that we really like. It is a smaller scale than the public school in our neighborhood with a much better student to teacher ratio and a very strong academic program. We are super excited about it, but today I am a bit tired because I got in line at 4:20am and I WASN'T the first person in line!!!!!! OK, I was 4th, so we had no problems getting her registered, but I stood there for 4 HOURS in the cold and dark. And, yes, I grumbled a bit about how she better appreciate it. But you know what, she is so excited. She just ran in to tell me she stopped what she was doing because she had to give me a hug because I got her into the school. So, all in all, totally worth it :)

    Well, you know how much a enjoyed your serendipity stuff, but I also love that page with all the JBS. That was very creative how you cut the sprouts in half for the scallop border!
