********************************

Now on to the Jillibean....

If you asked for more Jillibean today then you've got it! I love scrapping photos of my adorable nieces and these photos are no exception! Here A is using her sign language to ask for more milk! She is about 18 months here and was fully able to use her words, but she still loved to use her sign language. She loved her milk then and still loves if very much at the age of 3 1/2. In fact, she loves it so much, she usually drinks all of it before she starts to eat her meal! And she inhales it!
This LO uses the new Jillibean Blossom Soup collection mixed with a bit of my favorite Pasta Fagioli! To create the flowers, I used the corrugated shapes as templates. I traced around them on the patterned paper and then cut them out of the paper. Once the flowers were cut out, I lightly misted them with water and then scrunched them to give them their shape.
Another little tip is that I used metal cutters to cut the tips of the Sugar Picks off and left just the beaded section. I then hot glued this to the center of the butterflies that I hand cut from the patterned paper.

Patterned Paper: Blossom Soup/Lime Wedges, Half Pound Blossoms, Fresh Cilantro; Pasta Fagioli/Romano Cheese, Shell Macaroni
Corrugated Alphas: Green
Corrugated Shapes: Flowers
Sugar Picks: Orange/Turquoise, Red/Brown, Green/Quartz

  7. I was thinking I haven't visited your blog for a while, so I dropped by... to find I'd missed a fab giveaway!
    Still, there's ample consolation, from that gorgeous scrap page, featuring your sweet little niece and the lovely Jillybean goodies. I love what you did to make the butterflies and the flowers are cute.
