This was D's FAVORITE long sleeve shirt!
He got it for his birthday and wore it at LEAST 2 times a week.
I can't believe these are the only two pictures I could find (B took the one on the right)
The PROBLEM:  He's too tall for the shirt.  Looks like a crop top three quarter length sleeve, NOT RIGHT for a boy shirt!  He's NOT ready to give it up and I wasn't ready to let him look like that.
SO we went to Hobby Lobby purchased a $3 short sleeve shirt (summer is just around the corner and if he needs long sleeves he can stick a long sleeve under the short sleeve.)

Silhouette Easter Eggs

Here are my vinyl cut on the Silhouette for some Easter Eggs from Hobby Lobby

The green egg H is Balmoral D font.  NO idea where that font came from.
The speckled egg H is one of my favorite fonts Black Jack
I also made a pink D egg but gave it away before I got a photo!

Saving for Disney

So we were headed to the mall with Nana for some birthday fun.
D asked me if he could call her.  I told him the number he dialed and left a message since she didn't answer. . .

"Nana, this is D.  We're coming to pick you up and go to the Lego Store.  I was wondering if you  had any money?  I want to get something at the Lego Store.  I have some money but I want to save mine for Disney World."

Burp Rags via Silhouette

I JUST got my Silhouette machine so I don't have very many choices for vinyl.
I don't have ANY iron on vinyl, just adhesive.
So when I needed to make some burp rags for Bebe I had to improvise.

The "Bebe's Baby" burp rag (on the right) was my first print and cut project.  It was SO easy.  (If I hadn't printed on light colored transfer paper first it would have been even easier.  I did print on the dark colored transfer before I ironed on the first try).
The "bebe's Emma" burp rag was just cut on the dark colored transfer paper but was a PAIN to get straight and iron on the rag.  I won't be doing that again any time soon.  It is cute though! :)
Let me say my good friend, Kay, MADE the rags.  I just added the "bebe" stuff!
