My baby is 4!!

 Happy Birthday Adam!! My baby is 4 years old today.  We had little cake with the family today, nothing big.  Adam chose a fudge marble cake with vanilla and chocolate ice cream inside and white icing.  I used my bake and fill pan – expcept the ice cream was melty.  This time it was due to Texas heat and I didn’t get home from the store early enough to give it time to re-freeze!  But the kids all ate it.  Andy said it was the best cake he ever had, lol!

I haven’t ventured into the stamp room since I’ve been back, but I did have this to share from before I left.  I wanted to wait til Leigh got it before I showed it here.  She sent me one of those amazing 100 color challenge books and I had to make her something ultra nice as a Thank You.  This is what I came up with.  I used the zutter brand covers and had issues.  I covered them with Amy Butler’s new paper and Royal Coat decoupage (cause Debbie said it’s better than mod podge!).  Well – it wouldn’t hardly fit in the Bind-It-All!  Shouldn’t their own covers (which are supposed to be covered!) fit in their own machines??  And it was before I embellished it.  How frustrating!  Anyone else had this issue?  What have y’all used that fits in the machine better, but is larger than coasters?  So it turned out a bit crooked and I was so mad!  I really wanted it to be perfect because Leigh does such amazing work.  I embellished it with some velvet ribbon from Michael’s and a few primas.

Thank you so much for the color challenge book Leigh!

  • What a great book, love the colors and paper. I am waiting on my Bind It and will let you know if I have any issues with it. Hopefully it will be here this week.

    Beautiful book Emily! I’ve actually got a couple of the 6×6 covers that I’ve just covered with paper (I haven’t attempted to put the book together yet as I don’t have my inside pages cut). I’ll let you know if I run into any problems with the covers fitting in my BIA (I’ll consider myself being warned)!.

    Emily ~ My baby turned 16 today. He is out cruising around in my
    explorer. And yes I am holding my breath….

    Enjoy your baby while he is 4, I wish mine was 4 also.

  • Happy Birthday Adam! What a fun age! I’m so pleased to see Amy B. branched out of her fabric to paper! I have made projects with her fabric….love it! My daughter even made a funky purse with it (she’s 11). Love your little album Emily! So glad you are back!

  • That paper is beautiful!!! A bind it all is on my wishlist!! Hope I can get one soon!! P.S. Happy Birthday Adam!!!

  • Love your book! I hope your baby Adam had a wonderful day!

  • Happy Birthday Adam! I hope you had a wonderful day. Aren’t 4 year olds great? My son (4 this past April) has me in stitches all day long. When he isn’t talking back at least.

    The notebook is gorgeous. I can’t even tell that you had issues with the cover. It looks perfect.

  • Happy Birthday, Adam!

    Very pretty book, Emily!
