I am in love!!!

That's right...I am in love...with Norwex stuff! I can't believe how awesome my floors look after using their mop system! Call me a nerd, a clean freak...whatever you like - I am in love! Now that my little guy is cruisin' all over the floor, I am constantly cleaning it and nothing has gotten the floors cleaner than the Norwex dry and wet mop! It is a beautiful thing!

So it has finally rained here and things are looking a bit fresher as a result. My mom is coming to visit in about two weeks and boy do I have some things planned for her! We are going to put in the garden...clean out my flower beds...sweep the grass (lots and lots of leaves)...put up our address number... paint the front doors red and hit up a few yard sales. She has a busy week ahead of her little does she know!!!
I did, however, get some scrapping done in the last few days. I had to buy the new baby line from Making Memories and do something for my little guy. I am in love with all the banners going around so I thought that I would try something with his photos. It is such cute paper and the felt stars are super adorable!

This next one is using the new Pink Paislee 365 degrees collection. The colors are so beautiful and refreshing! I love their artisan goes with everything...and you can do soooooo much with it! I punched a bunch of circles and scalloped circles and glued them on and then sewed right over top. I misted the cardstock with Maya Road Cherry Red mist...if you haven't tried this stuff it is AMAZING! I use it on almost every LO now. This is a picture of my baby boy in his first sled ride wasn't super cold out but his little cheeks got so rosy and cute.

This last LO is for the May challange at the Urban Scrapbook. We used the Queen Bee line by Pink Paislee. It was very different to work with as I don't think that I would have bought it on it's own....but I loved it once I started working with it! Who am I kidding...I love all Pink Paislee stuff! I used the new Sizzex Tim Holtz dies on the big flower, cutting some yellow fabric that I found laying around. I glimmer misted them with Black gold, scrunch up the flowers and let them dry. A while ago, The Urban Scrapbook had a few little baggies full of great embelishment pieces that they had put together...I bought one that had a whole bunch of old watch faces, watch hands, gears, teeny tiny puzzle pieces and a few other little trinkets...great for adding a bit of vintage to one's LOs. We had to use the word "because" in our title...this if of my mom and her two grandchildren, my Shea and my sister's Calleigh. She is a proud "Gamma" - which is what Calleigh calls her - and we all love her "because of the wonderful things she does"...and this is one of my favorite lines from my favorite movie - The Wizard of Oz!

Thanks for looking and have a great rest of the week!
