A day as sweet as can be

Today was a sweet day.

Jonah was home today from school (he has pink eye), but he's so easy-going to have around that we had a great day! The kids had early dismissal, so they were home by 2:30. Sage had a friend come over and play. Today is Austin's 13th birthday, so we had Little Caesar's pizza and crazy bread for supper and chocolate cake for dessert. We gave Austin his gifts: a teen Bible & a remote control helicopter. Soon, we'll go to taekwondo, where Jonah should get his promotion to red stripe and we'll hand out some butter crunch to our club, in honour of the new teenager in our house. ;)

It was also a sweet day because I was able to have some crafty time. Here's what I made, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: background patterns from patterned paper scraps.


I used Papertrey Ink stamps (strawberry patch sentiments, turning a new leaf), and Crate Paper patterned paper (from my scraps folder) and chipboard (brand new!)

Thanks for looking!
