Buzz, Brag, and Bee Happy - April 1

Welcome to this week's BUZZ, BRAG and BEE HAPPY FRIDAY!  It's wonderful to have Rosemary back with us!  There is some very happy stuff in the hive this week!!




Welcome to Buzz Brag And Bee Happy Friday!!!





Well, I finally got a project done!! It felt good getting into my scraproom and playing with my stash. I have been wanting to use my Imaginisce magnets that I purchased and never used. While visiting Target, I found the cutest journal on sale for under $3.00. The book is canvas and such a cool print that I didn't want to cover it up. I did a search and found the idea for the flower magnet book closure, but no matter how many times I looked at the YouTube video, I just wasn't getting it to work. So, I came up my own method and it works!..The flowers are glued to the magnet and then the magnet is glued to the book. It took a few tries with ribbon and found the lighter ribbon works best. I did a decorative cover inside to hide the ribbon and everything is secure. So, do the Ns look a little funky? They should. I didn't have any Ns, so I used a couple Ms and cut them..I think it works with the album..lol..

Inside the journal I will help Nina set it up to be more than just a journal. When we were at the Mall, she found a journal that had comments for her to answer..Cool and very fun. So, I cut a few mats for photos. Example would be her photo on the first page. She can write 'me' and give the color of her hair,eyes, etc. There will be a page for anyone she wants listed and also questions like her favorite song, book, colors..whatever..This should be fun working with her to get it started. Hopefully, I can get a photo once the pages get filled in some.

INTRODUCING .............
 With this being Buzz, Brag and BEE HAPPY, how could I be any happier than bringing you this post? I am so delighted to introduce you to my newest granddaughter, Miss Paisley Ann!
 Is there anything any cuter than baby feet?  (This photo is especially for my Mom, who always checks out the tiny toes right away!) 
 Porter was just precious waiting and waiting to meet his brand new little sister...  she was out being bathed, and getting a check up when he got to the hospital, so he had to wait so paitently....
 Here she comes!!  He brought her a soft, chenille bunny. 
 A tender, sweet first kiss from a loving big brother.  He is SO good with her.
 Tender moments with Aunt Tori.
 Here I am meeting our sweet girl for the first time.  She is such an easy going baby! 
Porter brought her a flower!

I've created a couple of cards this week, but those can wait for the next post.   I hope you are enjoying some happy moments in your life.  Treasure your family and friends.  Tell them that you love them...
Stand for what you believe in, and make a difference in the lives of others.
Rest in Peace, Master Ken Ellis, a friend and teacher, whose life was cut short this week.

Congrats on that beautiful baby granddaughter, Betty! My computer would not let me on the internet ("can't find server") yesterday afternoon. Doug worked really late last night, but was sweet enough to leave late for work today in order to fix it for me. So I am linking now for BB&B Friday. Enjoy Porter and Paisley; sneak in a snuggle with both of those cuties for me. I'd wish you a happy weekend, but you are obviously already on cloud nine!
