March - Blogger Favorites

I use google reader to read many blogs. Most of the time I fall behind and I wind up having over 1,000 posts to read. I have my google reader sorted by category so whenever I have a free moment I try to read all the posts in the category. Last week I tackled my digital scrapbooking blogs. This week I'm trying to get through my organizing and craft blogs. I have over 400 to read. I decided to post my favorites here so I can find them again when I want to do the crafts with the kids.

Kids Crafts:

Flower Prints from soda bottles!

Crafting with Recyclables - Giant Sunflower

Kids Games:

Bug Race Game at Chasing Cheerios
Easter Egg Word Hunt at Chasing Cheerios
M&M Math Sorting at Muffin Tin Mom
Don't Eat Peter by Executive Homemaker
Easter Bingo by Executive Homemaker

Challenge and Freebie - 365 Template

I am always searching for new digital scrapbooking challenges to participate in.

Deco-Pages has a new "Odds and Ends" challenge. It's all about templates. There are 2 parts to the challenge. First you take a template that you already own and rotate it 90 or 180 degrees and make the layout. The second part to the challenge is to take a favorite layout in the gallery and make a template.

I chose this layout from Grip Design. I am always looking for layouts that have 7 photos in them to make project 365 easier.

Here is the template

You can download both the 12 x 12 and 8 x 8 template here.
