BINGO with Bugaboo

It's a BINGO Saturday at Bugaboo Stamps.

So, I thought I'd share with you my little something.
Every month on her month birthday, since Livy was born, I've created a card for her that we write in.  All the new & cute things she's done that month and put it in her special keepsake box.

Because my crafty time is SO limited with a new baby, I've kept these cards simple but special for her.  At some point when she's older she can go through her keepsake box and read all the notes her daddy and I have written to her over the years!

This was a simple one I put together for her after our first month together as a family.
Paper - White Cardstock, PTI Cardstock & Doodlebug Design print
Tools - MS Border Punch
Extra STUFF - Stickles & Dimensionals

Head on over to The Bug Blog and join in the Anything Goes fun.  You can't win if you don't play along!

Hugs & Happy Days!

In the Kitchen.....

We make lots of YUMMY stuff!!!  

If you're a follower, you KNOW we LOVE to cook and create yummy things in our kitchen.
Well, last Summer/Fall, before our baby girl was born, we made our annual Freezer Jam!  :)
Can you say YUMMO?!

We made white peach, white peach/raspberry and strawberry/raspberry.  Yep, YUMMO!!  

Of course with these yummy freezer jam jars, they needed just a LITTLE bit more.....and that's where we came up with the Freezer Jam labels that we attached to the jars with raffia.

The beautiful thing - this fabulous little image from Bugaboo Stamps that we used for the label!
Pretty cute, huh?
A perfect fit since today is an Anything but a Card day at The Bug Blog!
Paper - White Cardstock, Bazzill Magenta Cardstock
Tools - Nesties & Cuddlebug
Extra STUFF - Raffia

I cut these little labels out with one of my round nesties, and then added a scalloped background to it, punched a hole and threaded the raffia through - tied it around the band of the jar, and voila!  Instant cuteness!

Of course, I completely FORGOT to take photos of these cute little labels on the jam jars with the raffia.  At that point, I blamed EVERYTHING on pregnancy brain, so we'll leave it at that!  I'll be sure to REMEMBER to take the pictures this summer!!

I'm SO looking forward to this summer's freezer jam with Livy, her Grandma Horses and I.  What a fun weekend it will be.  Thank goodness for my hubby that Major League Baseball will still be going on, and that'll be just about the time for College football to kick off.  :)  As long as we keep the snacks coming for him, he's all good with whatever crazy we're creating in the kitchen!  :)

Hugs & Happy Days!
