Stuff we made this week

Oh, weren't we just a hive of busy bees this week.

I'm finally learning a bit of Photoshop Elements, and decided to do sort of a "hybrid" scrapbook page about our letterboxing, creating a 9-photo collage, getting it printed, then sticking on a title (created with elements from a digiscrapping kit that Jenny referred me to) and some journaling (which was a composite of my blog posts on the subject). So easy! Here it is; sorry that I don't have a scanner so I had to just photograph it:

Jenny, are you proud?

Also, I made this birthday card for my SIL's 40th this week. We surprised her with a party last night and she was so shocked she burst out crying! Her aunt even flew in from Cleveland to surprise her. Perfect!


The kids painted/decoupaged these wooden boxes, an idea I gleaned from the Colonial Kids craft book. You can probably tell whose is whose! Ian saved his decoupage for the interior of the box.




During our morning reading time on Thursday, Ian made marching band costumes out of paper for his Bionicles:



And finally, this isn't a craft, but we worked on our poor, drought-stricken garden today, pruning and watering.

That would be my gardening buddy at one of his many flattering angles: ;-)


Still working on that post everyone seems to want to hear. Maybe tomorrow ...

Hannah, your card is fantastic! I love it. The boxes the kids made are super cool, and that photo of Eliza and the water hose made me chuckle.
