Shhh...The Baby's Sleeping

My daughter is the Asst GM at a local eatery called Fuzzy's Taco Shop. She closes every night all weekend and then opens Monday. Dad on the job out of town so I am watching my granddaughter which I love to do but I don't get much crafting or blogging done. She feel asleep taking a ride in my new truck so here I am while she is sleeping.

Isn't she just precious?! We tried 3 times to see Granddad today. He's on duty at the fire station. He's been out on a call every time we've tried to go visit.

I fixed her some breakfast. She said she wanted cereal so I fixed her a bowl and I fixed me pancakes and some bacon. I knew she would end up eating some of what I had and sure enough she did!

I don't know if you can tell but she took a piece of bacon and is eating her cereal with it! Interesting mixture of foods! Silly girl!

Vanessa came by to pick her up for a few hours around noon today. That gave me some free time to check out the Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Bloghop. This is a great place for card inspiration and a very worthy cause for our men and women who serve in the military. I also managed to make a graduation card for my niece who is graduating next Friday.

I used a sketch #73 from OWH's sketches for this card. I love how it turned out. The school name is Perrin. If you look closely you can see it through the ribbon.

Here's a little closer view. The school specific paper I got at my LSS Cat's Creations Scrapbooks. I also got the color coordinated graduation paper from there as well. The sentiment (Congratulations) was from Stampin' Up. I stamped on white paper with black archival ink. Trimmed it down and then put on a strip of gold paper. Added the graduation hat sticker and 2 brads and popped the gold paper with foam tape.

When Vanessa brought Kennedy back to me, I took her to for a snow cone. Not sure if she's ever had one.

For our first one I got strawberry flavor. She seemed to like it but didn't eat much of it. I have a feeling there will be plenty more opportunities to have more!

She is still sleeping so I think I'll wrap this up and go look at some more beautiful cards at OWH! I encourage you to go take a look. You'll be glad you did!


  1. I love sleeping baby pictures. Kaylie's early scrapbooks are FULL of them! Your graduation card turned out great - I love the ribbon on it. Sounds like you all had quite a fun-filled day...and the weekend ain't over yet! LOL

  2. Sweet photos of Peanut! She does have an odd sense of taste. Ha, ha. I bet the snowcone was just so cold and different. She'll be loving them soon! Love the graduation card! I made a card for my granddaughter Emily who is graduating Wednesday night in Fort Worth! Will probably share it after the graduation. I used a MoJo Monday sketch for it.

  3. This is a lovely card, great image & ooO those ribbons - I love ribbons! Jx

  4. Hello!

    Love the photos of Kennedy! The one of her using the bacon as a spoon for her cereal is wonderful! Wishing you all good things this weekend!
