MiMi and Little Honey

What do you want your granddaughter to call you?  

I want to be "grandma."

16 months later and I'm "Mimi!"  LOL

Here is another fun layout with Mimi and Little Honey.  We do so much together and I have lots of photos of her but hardly ever of the two of us. Thanks to Jackson's mommy she took some priceless photos. 

When LH's play group gets together one of their favorite activities is eating.  LOL  This is her eating a peanut butter sandwich.  Of course you must start in the middle of your sandwich for it to be any good. 

Not being a great fan of chevrons I pride myself in using them in this layout.  I think I just convinced myself that they were very pointed or sharp waves.  LOL



Ingredients:  Little Yellow Bicycle's Splash collection; Thickers white letters; Heidi Grace letters; Dymo label maker; Recollection glittered wire; Moxxie and Bag O' Buttons; Heidi Swapp flower; X-ACTO Z-Series craft knife; Vintage Photo Distress Ink;

Fun Reminder about X-ACTO's giveaway here on D's Paper Studio.  See this post (THIS POST!)  

ArtBin is sponsoring a wonderful giveaway too.  If you love your Circut, you will love ArtBin's answer to organizing your Circut cartridges and manuals to carry anywhere you want to go.  You can see more details on THE SAME POST.


This is my newest ArtBin acquisition to store and organize my Spellbinder dies.  I started buying them more as of late.  They are really fantastic and cut beautifully.  I didn't like housing them in their original packaging and I saw this ArtBin organzior at AC Moores.  How do you organize your metal, thin die cuts?

Photo of the Day
This "animal" is at our local zoo.  I found it fascinating made of "this" and "that."  A fun piece of art.



Have a Crafty Weekend!

  6. Such a fun layout and you are so cute together :)
    I always hated being called JoJo by my parents growing up.
    But when my nieces and nephews started calling me Aunt JoJo because of my parents, well I decided it wasn't such a bad name :)

  7. Adorable layout. I love this die storage and saw it at my local craft store after I already had a new system in place so I dont want to swtich over at this point. I store them on cling storage sheets from Stampersbest.com using magnetic tape strips. It works great for me. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

  10. A mimi at our house is a blanket. Sequoia loves her purple mimi best of all. It's the only thing she has given a special name to. I'm Gramma. Hubby is Poppa, but that grandson Tiger's version of Grampa and it stuck. Your page is awesome! I agree the chevron look like pointy waves! I store my thin dies in CD cases, but some of the newer ones, like Lifestyle, are too big.
