If you have been reading my blog, you know that I have been trying to get my kids to pick up after themselves and it is working! Our house is spotless! All because they don't wan't to lose their stuff to my black bag! Here is a freebie:

Here is what I did with it...these are my dogs making a mess of my sliding glass, hoping to get in the house after a digging party in the yard! Not happening...

All of this stuff is from my Stars Forever kit that was a freebie on my blog for a while.

Here is a layout using my template #40 that was sent to me by Colleen:

Credits: Leah Riordan’s “Funky Floral”, LaWanna Desjardin for the turquoise paper in the circles and tag, Miss Mint’s “Craft Jar” for the flowers, Pillowgirl for the butterfly.

LOL on the black bag working! I used to take them and put them up on a shelf and they had an 'expiration date' which meant they could not have them back until then. It was frustrating to them for just a short while as they learned very quickly that if they wanted to play with something and not just look at it, they had better put it up when they were done with it! Thanks for another great template.

Thanks Andrea! Always love your templates! I'm hoping to find time tomorrow to participate in the challenge. Been wanting to, just no time. And hmmmmm, I may just have to get a black bag of my own! Glad it's working for you!!

Another fantastic template to scrap with all the lovely stars & curves. The dogs are just another set of children in any household. Glad of the success with your children in keeping their things organized. My great-grand is 13 mths, & I have his box. He has to put everything away before he leaves & he does. So start when they're young & later on you won't have multiple problems. I am so proud of your little darlings helping mommie keep things in order. Again, thanks for the wonderful template & the so cute preview layout. See you tomorrow.

So nice to see lovely scraps showing how wonderful your templates are as they showcase your lovely designs. Love the pattern mixture along with all the crazy elements that compose a fun & happy lo to share. Can't stop smiling over the crazy-wild sunglasses in their photo.

Keep it up, Andrea. My parents had a spin on the black bag - in order to 'redeem' something, we kids had to find something left out by out parents. I think they actually 'left' things out on purpose sometimes, but as kids we didn't know that.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.

  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
