Don’t exclude your self from the class….
If you have older children, like school age and/or older your pediatrician should have records of your child height and weight, so you can always get these records and fill them in with little 2x2 photos of your child at that age.
And you don’t have to have a baby theme think of other themes like school, sports, prince/princess, a favorite animal or collection when planning for the class.
Remember think outside the box!
Have a great night and happy scrapping... I just might scrap a few pages this week... It's good therapy!

I'd like to hear from you if you are interested in a class to make the growth chart....
If I get as least five who are interested... I will open a group in yahoo to host the class... The class is free! But you will need to get your own supplies- papers, adhesives, ribbons and such. I will provide the files for you download with cute embellishments, the letters "SO BIG", the numbers and dashes for measuring in inches and feet.
I would like to post the supplies on the 10th of September in the group... giving you a little over a week to gather all that you need. The instructions will be posted on a daily bases broken up into sections in this way if you have any questions you could ask them that day. I know some will move ahead quickly because that's just the way they are and others just need more time, I believe this will be the best way to handle the project.
To give you an idea- on the first day we would create the base for the chart. The second day we would place the marks for measuring. On the third day we would then begin to create our layout...but you can't jump ahead here because embellishments have to be placed. If we are moving through the project.... on the fourth day techniques for the antique crackled hinges and for making those cute little polka dot ribbons.....
Did I mention this folds nicely for storage? I even have a place for a tie, so it stays closed.
So why not call your friends tell them about the class and we will get together and have a blast making a treasured keepsake for you or for a gift! Leave me a comment so I can get an idea of who wants to join.

I came up with this idea two summers ago, it was a hit at the store I was designing for. I taught the class and while it was on display for sign ups, Donna Downey was visiting the store. I was encouraged by the manager Nancy W. to talk with her and Nancy introducing me as the one who made the chart. Well I was a little over whelmed to be talking to a celb. and all but I managed to ask her some questions... I just love her! Just like her work she is simple and down to earth!
Anyway... I had purchased her book and she signed it...encouraging me to keep sharing... So I was thinking ...I share my files but what about my other stuff? It's not hard to make the growth chart! Over a week we could do it together, what do you think? Are you interested in making a growth chart?

Hello... all of you wonderful peeps!
I hope your labor day weekend has been wonderful!
I've been hitting the blog's lately and decided to move.... It's going to take me a little while to get up & going but the site is going to be fabulous!!!
I want it to have more of artsy feel than I have here! I'm not much of a writer, I need the freedom of expression that's why I'm taking the leap and so excited about it.
Also... i'm waiting for the arrival of the new Klic-n-Kut Element. I have so many wonderful files coming up for you and will be back to offering freebies!
I about died!!! What do you do when all he's ever heard was "OH, that hair.... he's so cute, every where we go... maybe we should just stay home!"
Actually, he finally told us today he is ready for his first hair cut... I'll have to let you know how it went... last time when we had an appointment and they were already to take him to wash his hair he threw a fit and we had to leave....
Have a great night!
