Grandma's Little Helpers ~ Savannah and Colten

Hi everyone!  Here is another layout I did for Practical Scrappers.  This one is for the Friday Sketch Challenge which is a design by Ann Katrin.  It's a wonderful sketch, and I really did start out following it, but I strayed just a little...  lol    But then again, you're just supposed to be inspired with the sketch and then make it your own.  Well, this is definitely my own..  The photos were taken back on January 17th, and the little ones had spent the night with us.  This was my daughters B-day and my daughter in laws B-day was the next week, so we were celebrating both B-days on that day over at our house.  And I was fixing dinner for everyone.  I found this fabulous recipe with a ham in one of my Taste of Home Cookbooks and I wanted to try it out.  Well, when I started getting my stuff together, the next thing I know the stepstool is up next to the cabinet and Savannah is on it and ready to help.  Well, not to be outdone, little Colten was on the bottom step and also wanted to help.  You know, anything big sister can do, he can do tooo.... lol    It was so cute I had to get the camera and take this picture.  The little photo of Colten on the bottom left is of him standing in my fridge...  EVERYTIME I opened the fridge door, he was there trying to climb in...  It was too funny.  At home he doesn't do that because their freezer is on the bottom, so not for sure why he does it over here...  Anyway they were just too cute being "Grandma's Little Helpers"!!
This is a list of what I used:
BoBunny ~ Kitchen Spice Jasmine Die Cut
Fancy Pants ~ Splendid ~ Queen of Hearts  (this is double sided)
Prima Floral Embellishments ~ Orange
Prima Vine
Fancy Pants ~ Glitter Cuts ~ Orange Boy Frame Overlay
MS Border Punch ~ Garden Trellis
SU Pacific Point CS
SU Sage Shadow CS and Ink
SU Chocolate Chip CS
QuicKutz ~  Magnolia Cookie Cutter Die Letters
Zva Self Adhesive Crystals
Stickles
This layout also qualifies for a few other challenges which are:
Practical Scrappers ~ Sketch
ABC Challenge ~ N is for New  (the Fancy Pants Glitter Frames are new)
Alphabet Challenge ~ O is for Oval  (the zva bling makes ovals)  Hey, I know I'm stretching this one...lol
Tellen's Place ~ Tic Tac Toe  ~ I chose the Flowers, Punch and Bling
Be sure and check out the other layouts the Design Team put together over at Practical Scrappers and then play along with us.  Half the work is already done... Now you just need to find the right pictures and then  add a little embellishments and there you go!!!  And, did I mention it's so much fun and very rewarding!!  Well it is!!!  After you get it done, be sure and upload it to Mr. Linky so that we can all see it.. 
Thanks so much for dropping by and have a wonderful weekend!!!
Please drop back by anytime!!
Hugs  :o)
Pin It!
