Signaling super heroes!

The kids are Batman and Superman today.  Mommy thought they needed to be notified, so she offered to make them a signal.

Then they had to go where each hero could see it.

The Batman and Superman cartridges can be considered heroes today too.

Carrot Ziti

My older son asked for carrot ziti.  Since I was terrified of what he could possibly want, I didn't make or mention it for months.  Then he brought it up again.  This time I asked how to make it.  It was "regular ziti with carrots on top."  I could do that.

I had to make a layout of this meal.  I purposefully put it on a purple plate so that I could use that color in the page.  

Fancy Pants background, Momenta stickers, ink, 'Chalkboard Fonts' cartridge.

Simple b-day?

I was running out of time to make my husband a birthday card.  So, I tried to make a super simple white card, similar to what is in magazines.

It is predominately white with a stamp, doodled heart, ribbon and inked edge.  The ink got onto one side of the ribbon so I added some to the other to make it look intentional.  I think it was a success.
