The Cute Things

My two kids come up with the cutest things! Their interpretation of the world and all they see/hear is just so entertaining to listen to! Ella has many phrases and words that she repeats over and over! And she chooses words like "speak" instead of "talk." Her vocabulary is astonishing.

We are a family known for giving nicknames. Nathan will give anyone a nickname--he can't help himself. I think he looks at it as a way of showing you that he cares! Ella coined this phrases a few months ago...everytime she can't find her male counterparts like Nathan, Daddy or her cousin, Christian, she will say, "Where are the guys?" Actually, (another word she is famous for using) she will often say, "Where are MY guys?" like she owns the world. She just might one day...

So here are the guys! Aren't they both so handsome? And twins!

Supplies: (All from the July Studio Calico kit) Paper: Making Memories, Studio Calico, Scenic Route; Chipboard: Maya Road; Alphabet: K & Company; Buttons: Stash goodies!

I love this alphabet from K & Company--I think it is the slight shine they have! I outlined the edges with a black marker because it makes them stand out against the Kraft! A little tip--do your outlining while they are still adhered to the packaging! Watch your fingertips because the marker doesn't easily dry on the plastic. I took apart the Maya Road ticket album to make these cool, dimensional photo mats! I love how the picture is lifted up--I will be doing that more!

I have to go into work today. Not so cute, huh? ACTUALLY, I am getting excited to see all of my kiddos from school!

Happy Thursday!
