My daughter and I love doing perler beads together. Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration and fun patterns. I've pinned so much fun crafts for us to do and this time we wanted to make something for Easter. 

We started out making bunnies and eggs using perler beads.

After ironing them we let them cool down a bit, then used a glue gun to attach wooden scewers to the backs.

I pulled out some terracotta pots from the shed and we planted grass seeds. This part was a little messy, so we worked outside.

My daughter arranged the bunnies and eggs in the pots, and we placed them in our sunniest window. A week later they look like this!

These will be super cute on our table just in time for Easter.

Another layout using Kellie Stamps March release. I'm so happy that I decided to do layouts this month, rather than PL spreads. I do have parts and pieces of at least ten Studio Calico scrapbook kits, but so rarely make layouts these days. When I do, it's like "Oh yeah, THIS is what I used to do!" 

I started out trying to make a grid layout using two photos of my kids ice skating this winter. I enjoy working in PSE putting my design together and then printing it in separate layers, but I just couldn't get it right this time. Then I removed one photo and this happened. I like it so much more! I found a gold transparancy that I cut a few banners from and also a pack of gold thickers that I used for snow flakes.

I hope you haven't missed out on the fact that Kellie will be releasing her designs as clear stamps as well! She has extended her pre-order until the end of March 19th Aussie time! So hurry!

The March release from Kellie Stamps is here! I have used the AM to PM digital brush kit to put together a collage of my current favorites.

I used my two inch circle punch to create a fun grid and added a die cut heart to break up the grid a bit and put focus on the photo of me and the kids.

In the center you can see my most recent purchase for the 2016 Reading Challenge, Stephen King's new book The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. I'll be adding a short review of it on my Pinterest board as soon as I finish it. My favorite album at the moment is Stormar by Lastkaj 14,a local band. I warmly recommend finding it at Spotify! My favorite youtube channel for fun nail art is HannahRoxNails.
