Shout out to the HUBBY.
You are a truly amazing husband and father. You are the Rock that this family is built on
and I couldn't imagine my life without you!

Happy Fathers Day Baby!!

For Fathers Day Jamie made Johnny a "DAD ROCKS" extra large paper weight .... although it is pretty much the same size as a plate!! It's a little larger than planned. We had so much fun hunting for the rocks around the backyard and Jamie really enjoyed placing the rocks in the dough. Which by the way was the easiest thing to make. I found this awesome  idea over at "ediTORIal"
Yes, that's right TORI SPELLINGS SITE! That girl is a genius, seriously who knew?

Tori actually found this idea over at Crafts by Amanda site: Amanda is pretty CRAFTY you should probably head on over and check out her site!

• 1/4 cup salt
• 1/2 cup flour
• 1/4 cup water
• bowl
• cookie sheet
• 1/2 cup pea gravel

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
2. Mix flour, salt and water together in a bowl. If dough is too sticky add small amounts of flour until it is doughy and pliable. Be careful not to add too much as the dough will dry out and your creation will crack.
3. Shape a piece of the dough into a ball in your hands. Place the ball on the cookie
sheet and flatten to about 1/2" thickness.
4. Carefully select pieces of pea gravel to spell out "DAD ROCKS". Press them firmly but gently into the salt dough.
5. Bake your paperweight for 2-2.5 hours until completely dry.
6. Remove from oven and allow to cool before handling or removing from cookie sheet.
Optional: You can spray your creation with acrylic sealer or paint it with a clear coat sealer.

We also made a Family Hand Print that I am in love with. We each picked our own paper to place our hand on.
  • Jamie picked his art paper that he had drawn on, I picked some really pretty wrapping paper and the hubs picked red construction paper. 
  • We then traced our hands and cut out the tracings.
  • I then "mod podged" the hands on top of each other starting with the hubbys
  • I then glued them on to white canvas paper
  •  (its a little thicker than normal paper, I am so good at giving descriptions).
  • I also had to cut the canvas paper to fit inside an Ikea Ribba 8x10 frame 
  •  TAAA DAAAA a fabulous family keepsake.

Not to Shabby eh? I might be a little CRAFTY myself!!
These projects were super easy to make and a lot of fun. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Fathers Day !!!
