I used the Bazzil Bling cardstock on the wedding one and then a transparency printed with the Glitz Digital Scrapbook CD for the overlay. And then the Glitz Designs cardstock stickers for the birthday cake and flower elements. It was fun!
And if that doesn't get you feeling all warm and fuzzy and connected to the globe, THIS VIDEO will-

Published in 1966 and most of the crafts are totally horrendous, but it was just too classic to pass up. I knew I would regret not buying it. I know this picture is blurry and hard to read but the title is Aprons with a Foreign Flair- and the comments beside each apron are so funny- (left to right) "Ideal to wear for smorgasbord party" "Greek or not, she'll love wearing it!" "Oriental look not bought in a shop" and finally "Wear it as an apron or an overskirt" Wow- seriously? BHG doesn't kid around. These Bazzar Best Sellers are Bizzar-although there's something I really like about the chicken spice rack... Ok, again hard to see, but that wall on the left has TASSLES hanging on it! That is just classic. I love my new (old) book.
That great find got me energized for vintage stuff, and we stopped off at a thrift store before heading home (didn't want to get home before the kids bedtime!) And I found 2 more cool things. Can't you just see a little old lady in this "house dress" (isn't what they call them?) I am determined to make it into a couple of pillows. And I found 2 of these pretty sheer tablecloths-
I just have to have a tea party now to use them, or maybe I will cut them up for aprons... (to be honest, they will probably sit somewhere for years before I do anything with them, but for $3 I couldn't pass them up.) So our free date ended up costing about $10, but that's still not bad right?

He is very happy to lay in his crib now. (for a little while anyways)
