Chipboard Makes me Happy

It has been a couple of weeks since I made this....but I did want to share this. I made this cute Little Yellow Bicycle book using their fun paper. I just love how it turned out. I haven't finished putting all the pictures in it. I just put some picts so you could see what it looked like.

I have to say that I love this company and it's paper. It is so much fun. I love the little skeleton men. I thought it went very well with the costumes that I made.

I also used some other papers mixed in....I'm not sure which ones they are....but Sherri or someone else will let me know.

I also have to say that these precious costumes were super easy to make. I took black sweat suits. Then I freehandedly (is that a word?) cut out bones out of felt. The bones were then glued down with some tacky glue.

The costumes were pretty durable and lasted two years.

But alas...the boys have grown...they cannot wear these bones any more. What ever will I do?

I've made the boys eagles, vampires, tigers, Zorro, Star Wars characters....what will I do? I really like using sweat shirts so if there is something else you can think of....let me know.

My friend Sara gave me this little beauty. She also told me I had to make a post today! LOL!
She gave me some rules....I hate to say that I am not very good at following rules. I am bad. I admit it. But when I started looking, the people that I heart reading their blogs....already had the little bloggy picture.
But I do want to say, "Thank you, Sara! I love you!"
