There are so many ways to share the things we love. We can take photos of moments and family and document them like I did in this layout of my son enjoying the sunshine and warmth of summer. We will love looking at them and remembering again and again.
I kept it simple since I want the photos to shine. The February frugal fab kit was full of fun things that reminded me of summer - vivid greens and yellows and reds and fun beach-themed ATC cards and bright buttons. I decorated one of the buttons with parts of the alphabet stickers in the kit to make a smiley face in the top corner and I used some of the Pink Paislee bling stickers to look like water droplets.
I love to give handmade gifts whenever I can. Since spring is coming and there are always several weddings and bridal showers that will be coming up, I made some simple recipe cards to give to new brides. I know I appreciated some of the recipes I received when I was first married. It was nice to have some recipes I knew were tasty and that my new husband liked.
And since I love surprises and surprising people and I love gifts in pretty packaging, I'm sharing another of my loves a friend - peach jam - tied with lace from the February frugal fab kit and dressed up with tags and paper from the February main kit.
And I think I've found a new love! The little gift bag made with pretty paper and the pinwheel sticker would be perfect filled with cookies or candy or scones. I love it! Wouldn't it be so fun to give or receive a goodie in one of those?!
And as we jump into March, we will be thinking about numbers. We use numbers in so many ways during each day without even thinking about it or realizing it! We make lists (at least I do), we have to wake up and go to work or take children to practice at a certain time, , we have to watch the number on the speedometer when we drive, we measure ingredients to bake or buy a certain number of items at the store, we have time limits or we try to beat a certain time, we say or do things a certain number of times in a day or a week, we count down the days to holidays and on and on.
Numbers are everywhere in our lives and it will be fun to see how our numbers add up this month for the design team.
