a few things to mention

i have extended the "One Day Sale"...So you can still come in and take advantage of these sale items! It will go through May 3rd.

Which brings me to National Scrapbook Day!! Make sure you all mark your calendars for May 3rd...we are going to be having a make-n-take...featuring the new Cosmo Cricket line!!

Birthday Party **Madness**

Little miss Bailey celebrated her 10th birthday here at Scrappy's! She and her cousin love coming to the Kid's Classes every month, and Bailey wanted to have her party here and do a little project. So the scrapbook area was all decorated with Hawaiian theme {everything}!

All 6 of the kids enjoying their "after-school" snacks before the projects began!

For the project, Megan (Bailey's mom) took photos of all of the kids and ran to the store to have them printed in wallet size. Meanwhile, the kids and i began working on the photo frames. We used the new Cosmo Cricket black chipboard and die-cut sheets. (yes, it does take quite awhile to punch out all the little die-cuts, but it's worth it...they are adorable!!)

All the girls busy at work...gluing the chipboard together, gluing them onto their frames, arranging their photos on coloured mats...they were actually quiet for a short time!!

So much fun!! The girls enjoyed the craft and being able to put their own creative taste on it.
After only an hour and a half of "partying" they were off to go enjoy pizza as the last part of the birthday party!!

**thanks for having your birthday party at Scrappy's!!

i tried my hardest to create a cute little recipe card box...i failed miserably! i worked on it for a few days and decided it was just not going to happen! So, instead i created a little book for the Kit of the Month. Here it is...

i put together 11 pages from the Cosmo Cricket Little Boy paper pack. This paper is so absolutely adorable! i used photos of my hubby when he was a little tike...the paper matched perfectly! In the paper pack there are 12 sheets of pattern paper...i only used 11. i decided to use on the papers to "cut-up" and use that way. Every page has a different "sketch" to i will show you how to put together 11 different pages. i have the pages on display in the Cosmo Cricket 8X8 album...unfortunately it's not included in the "kit"...and i only have 2 left here at the store.

Here is a list of everything that is included in the Kit:
