project 365 - Week 12

I've fallen a bit behind on project 365. I'm still taking photos daily but finding less time to make the weekly layouts. Here is March 19 to March 25. Luckily, I continue to journal daily when I upload my photo each day to facebook so that helps a lot in creating layouts since I have fallen behind.

All That Glitters by Retro Designs

Gold really isn´t all that glitters in this bright and sparkling kit. There are gem encrusted bows and flowers and an extra sprinkling of rhinestones for an added sparkle, plus a jeweled butterfly to flutter through your floral pages. It's suitable for all feminine and heritage pages too, and due to its various heart elements, it makes pretty birthday cards and valentines.

Kit includes:

10 backgrounds 12 X 12
2 shaped backgrounds in PNG format 12 X 12
29 misc. embellishments
6 frames
2 page borders
1 quick page with 2 apertures

Fridays Fave 5

Details to what it's all about are here.

My favorites for the week:

1. Egg Coloring and Egg Hunts:
When I was growing up I would color eggs with my parents. It was a fun project to do. Even though I am now Jewish I thought it was fun to have the kids participate in something I did when I grew up. They even tried to eat it. Of course, they did not like it so I'm left with tons of hard boiled eggs.

We went to 2 egg hunts (our town and one close to my parents house). Our town had their annual egg hunt. It lasted for literally 10 minutes. The kids had a blast collecting the eggs. They sat in the car and opened up all the eggs to find candy and little plastic jewelry. The 2nd one was at the beach near my parents. We went with my sister, BIL and niece. We had to wait 45 minutes in line. There were a lot of people there. The eggs were buried in the sand. There was so many people there that at one point I lost one of my kids (Victoria) luckily my mom was with us and she was with her the entire time. Talk about panic. Anyway, after finding some eggs they opened them up to find coupons to use on the boardwalk. The kids were disappointed that they got no candy.

2. Dairy Queen: We went to DQ for the first time for lunch. The kids were so happy to be able to have a hot dog with fries. The happy meal included ice cream. We will go back another time.

3. Dance: Naomi had her dance photos taken. She was so excited when I put make up on her face. She even told her sister that she was not allowed to have make up because she is not doing dance only her. Look at how big she looks here.

4. Blooms: It is starting to feel and look like spring. The 2 trees in front of my house started to bloom with the white flowers again. It does this every April and last only until May. It is beautiful when all the flowers are out.

5. Rainbow: The kids saw a rainbow for the very first time. It didn't last for very long but I did manage to get some photos.
