It's Tuesday, but I have had so little sleep in the past 48 hours, it doesn't really matter. I'm delirious I'm sure. Why don't children want to sleep? It seems so natural, and yet it eludes J. That's definitely one of those questions I'm asking my maker someday, just because I have to know.
My stuff has been shipped, bound for CHA! If you are there, please stop by the Cosmo Cricket booth and check everything out. Leah made some amazing layouts and Maren made some cool cards. I'll add some links when I can focus better. Here is a project that will be at the booth (see we don't have to go to CHA to have a good time!):
This is a Cosmo Cricket Memory Box, covered with Jack's World. It's got primary colors on every side (red, yellow, blue and green) and the patterned paper on top. I added (stapled) the Jack's world scalloped yellow ribbon because I didn't want everyone damaging the top opening it (yeah, I know what they do to stuff at CHA, but I had to try.) I covered the hole in the top, because it was kind of delicate and girly and this was a Boy's box for his treasures (I added the journaling tab that said that to the top) with the little alligator Cosmo Blackboard. The alligator has adhesive on the back now (awesome) and it will have it's own diecut colored top with adhesive (super awesome!):
And in case you are wondering why there is an arm in the picture, well, J loves this box and I can't keep him away from it. I promised him that since this one had to go to CHA, I would make him another just like it. I was surprised just how much he liked it, I know kids love storage for their collections. I love that you can personalize it with whatever they are into.
Plus, as promised, here is the link to the 4 (yes 4) new Scribble Scrabble Lines being released this summer. Cynthia is not at CHA though, so any inquires or orders should be directed to the website (see DT side bar) with the contact us link. Awesome stuff, no?
