Another Challenge

See– I am on a roll with these challenges this week πŸ˜‰

This time I did the challenge over at Erin Lee Creative, who teamed up with Angelica Suarez at Handmade by Angelica for a Music Monday Challenge.

This is a fun, new twist on challenges–letting music be the inspiration. Β πŸ™‚

(ps. I am teaming up with Erin on something really fun too– but not til next month)

So….the song for this week is You Are the Best Thing by Ray Lamontagne, and the challenge is to make something for someone who is the best thing in your life….

Well I have a lot of wonderful things in my life–but, of all the things in my life–I’d have to say my 2 beautiful children are at the top of the list!

Alexis who is 5, is my shining star. Β She is a smart, funny and sweet girl– I love her to pieces- and she amazes me with the way she sees and understands the world around her. Β She is full of grace and love- and is always thinking of others– I am so proud to be her mom.

Jaxen who is 3–almost 4, is my sunshine–he lights up a room with his smile and his charm. Β He has the biggest heart, and is one of the best snugglers. Β He is always willing to help, and is notorious for eating all the yogurt he can get his hands on. Β He brings excitement to every single day!

I love them both so very much!

So this card is for my babies- because they love band-aids, and we often go through a new box every month. Β After seeing them use them for every little spot — I decided to only buy the boring ol’ tan ones –which they were NOT happy about! Β (Fortunately, for them–grandma sent them character band-aids right away–when she heard about this)

Anyway– we often sing the “stuck on band-aid brand, cause band-aid stuck on me, ” song around here–and I knew that they would love and get the humor of this card! They also both LOVE peachy keen stamps– so, I had to add one! Oh, and Jaxen insisted I add tiny dots to the strips of the bandaid….and to make it even more fun, I put an action wobble under the bandaid πŸ™‚

  • That is too cute!! My 4yr and 3yr old go thru bandaids like no other as well. Even if there isn’t a true boo boo. lol Your kids are adorable!!!

  • How cute is this!!! I love this card! My 4yr and 3yr old go thru bandaids quite quickly too. Even if there isn’t a true boo boo. lol

  • what a great picture of the kids & a wonderful card to match. i think all kids love band aids. my friend’s son (who was 2 at the time) snuck into the closet & took all the hello kitty band aids & put them all over himself & proudly showed my friend what a wonderful job he did. it was classic. i usually have my “seriously i do have a boo-boo” stash which are the colored band aids & the “i bumped myself & want a band aid to make it better.” stash.

  • Your children are absolutely beautiful! Reading your post brought tears to my eyes… they sure are lucky to have a mom love them so dearly. πŸ™‚ When you mentioned the band-aids, I truly laughed out loud. We went thru A LOT of band aids too, and I did the exact same thing…. went to the ol’ plain ones. For some reason after that… most boo boo’s somehow didn’t require a band aid anymore!! LOL! Of course, my 7 year old has discovered the school nurse and her teacher have the “good” kind, so she comes home with quite a few new band aids!! πŸ™‚ Love your card by the way… πŸ™‚

LLL My dtr wanted to kill me, how could I resist & say no to that precious little smiling face!!!LLL 2ond box Toy Story…..heeheeeeeeeeeeee for emergency stash!!! TFS Great card!!!

  • What a cute card. Love the story behind it too. I remember when my daughter was that age. She was (and still is) so squeamish we had to keep even the tiniest of boo-boo’s covered. LOL

  • How cute is this Sarah?!?!

  • That is too cute Sarah! My kids all went through a bandaid phase. At one point my daughter Zoe had 5 bandaids on her face yeah I’m sure people were staring but she was happy. Now we only buy the plain brown ones lol. πŸ™‚ Great minds think alike. hehe. Super cute card and the picture of the kiddos is just darling.
