See this girl?  The one on your left?  That's my Sarah B.  She's pretty rad.

This is us tailgating (actually parking garaging) before a Bon Jovi concert.  That's right...don't be jelly that we saw Jon in his tight leather pants! 
Why do our clothes match in both pictures???  Hahaha

Anyway, Sarah B. has Silly (that's our name for her Silhouette) and she was "such a great gal" to let me and Randa Bliss from The Random World of a Free Bird use it for a couple of projects. be honest, when I say let us use it, I mean, we told Sarah B. what we wanted to do and she did it with Silly.  I'm WAY TOO SCARED of that machine, but I do want my own SO BAD!

First project:  A shirt for my precious granddaughter, Kayden, to wear when she meets her Papa for the first time ever next month.  Have you ever tried finding a shirt with "grandpa" on it????  Impossible!  I bought this cute little romper from Target ($6).
We, and by we, I mean, Sarah B., designed this:

Oh yeah, I'm keeping that for a stencil!
Here it is!  A custom romper for $6!!!

So cute!  I cannot wait for my husband to meet Kayden!

Randa Bliss wanted me to make a sign for her cousin who JUST HAD HER BABY TODAY!  Happy Birthday Baby Lydia!  Her mommy wanted a sign to hang above the crib, so Sarah B. used Silly to create "Sleep well."  I first spray painted the board Rich Plum, then painted over that with a light lavender.  I used Mod Podge to glue the letters down.  Now this part is important....I sanded and distressed the sign, then put on a layer of Mod Podge to protect it.  If you do that, the letters will look aged too.
I really hope she likes it!

Really cute barrettes made by Sarah B!

Aren't they adorable?????  Just like her!
Thanks for being such a great friend...not just because you let me use Silly, but because you are one awesome chick with a heart of gold!
