Ballet Love

Here's another LO featuring Nikki Sivils' Sugar Cookie collection. This is Bianca at her ballet Christmas program last December. They featured dances from The Nutcracker and she's supposed to be doing a soldier dance. She was sooooo adorable, and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mother:)

Proud Boy

Here's a delayed post for my LO which was on the Pebbles blog last week...

The 1st day of 2011 was a fun and lazy kind of day for us...we woke up almost lunch time and decided to head to the club for a swim (for the kids), a run (Bud and I) and some kite-flying...

Title: Proud Boy
Journaling: Luis was so happy to finally be able to fly a kite -- and a Chinese centipede kite, at that! Daddy brought it home from one of his China trips! Jan. 1, 2011
Materials: Pebbles supplies used: New Arrival Boy Little Angel (751069), New Arrival Boy Precious (751071), New Arrival Boy Everything Sweet (751073), New Arrival Boy Peek-A-Boo (751075), New Arrival Boy Chips (744116), New Arrival Boy Word Stickers (732027), Tree House Laughter (751025), Tree House Chips (744114), Chocolate Brown Ribbon (744027)

It was really a perfect day for pictures and the New Arrival Boy line from Pebbles went perfectly with Luis' shot of flying his Chinese centipede kite!
