Blog Update

I am so excited. I am finally getting the blog re-designed. Yes, by a professional, the site so needs it. Also after some long talks in my family, we are renaming the BLOG!!! When I created the blog it was because I wanted to share my crafting and my huge love of Disney. SO I named the blog Disney Scrapping, not thinking hello TRADE INFRINGEMENT! So we have decided to re name the blog. The new name will be revealed when the new design is uploaded. I think it is going to be awesome. 

Also I am going to be starting next Wednesday a weekly themed project .... Bind it Wednesday. I love my Bind it all so I want to start a weekly fun thing with the bind it all. 

I am also hoping to start in June with a guest designer coming in for a visit. 
So if you want to be a guest designer please just say email me or leave a comment. 

I am so looking forward to getting back into the world that I love ..... crafting!!

Project Forty-seven Pooh Bear

Hello!! I am getting back into the groove. So If you are only here for the project jump to just under the picture.

So here is what has been going on. CRAZINESS!! OK sorry had to say it. I have been getting back into crafting tiny steps at a time, but nothing to do with Disney. Hard to believe I do craft other things besides Disney. We are settled for the most part. My poor babies of course move right before there birthdays, so we had simple parties with just family. Mackenzie had her sister, cousin and herself for a Build A Bear party. Mary had a simple dinner to Cheesecake factory and a Mani and pedi day with her sister and her mom. Loved that gift myself! I am trying to find time for crafting after all the kids are asleep. I am still looking for a scrapbook store here is South Florida. If anyone knows of any please say, missing spending hours scanning through paper.

OK on to today's project. My family is catholic, and both my children are making their First Reconciliation and First Communion this year. My daughters made First Reconciliation this past Saturday. The church had the parents make a "love box" for each child. It is just a simple box filled with letters from family and friends. Once the kids were finished with Father and said penance, they were able to open the box and read the letters. My dear friend who is older than me still has her box and letters. So I hope my children will value theirs too.

So this is Mackenzie's love box

All I did was cover a child's shoe box with paper and craft away.
The actual box is covered in
Chocolate Chip paper from Stampin Up
The Sunflower paper is Spring Yellow from Magenta- a find at my then local scrapbook store
The flowers
are all from Prima flowers that I just layered together.
