Random Tag

Ashley at Bandy Canyon tagged me a while ago so finally here are my answers! =D Go check her blog out. Love her fashion creations.

Here are the rules:
*Post these rules.
*You must post 11 random things about yourself.
*Answer the questions set for you in their post.
*Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
*Go to their blog or facebook page and tell them you’ve tagged them.

So here we go with ELEVEN Random Things About Me:
1. Breaking Dawn was my 1st midnight movie I went to.
2. I've never been to a rock/famous band concert.
3. I've had more babysitters in December and January then I've ever had since I've had kids (my son is 3 years old). Swapping babysitting is a lifesaver.
4. I've rearranged my house like 5 times in the last month....more in attempts to fit all my kids' stuff in our small home. Having a girl and boy makes living in a small house even trickier!
5. Laundry has become more despised than dishes. Having 2 kids makes a ton more laundry than just having 1...or maybe it's all the sickness....
6. I don't like diving board or jumping high into water even though I'm an excellent swimmer.
7. I've been planning my baby girl's first birthday since she we found out she was girl!
8.  I'm going crazy with all the sickness in my house. January, every week someone was sick. Half the month in February and half the month in March..
9. I desperately miss my extended family and wish I could teleport my family wherever. My parents haven't even met my baby girl who will be 1 next month.
10. I always thought I'd have like 5 kids, but now I might just be good with 2...though I think there's at least one more that we're supposed to have.
11. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Okay now for the questions that Ashley asked me:

Shamrock Luck Magnetic Large Canvas and other St. Patty Day Creations

I made this large canvas using the shamrocks and LUCK words I bought from Pick your Plum. I love that place to get cute crafty items for huge discounts - a new deal every day!

I used mod podge to put the scrapbook paper on the middle shamrock and the Luck word. I painted the other shamrocks with acrylic paint and then some glitter paint. I let it all dry. I then used my awesome glue dots to add the metal pieces. Then used glue dots to adhere it all to the large canvas. Then I added some yellow buttons for more color as well as some St. Patrick's Day printables. I made magnets using a glue dot on top of a magnet and adding a green button on it.

You can use it to hold favorite photos or notes for the month of March =)

The small 8x10 canvas is mainly a subway art printable from My Computer is my Canvas - pinned here. With scrapbook paper behind it. Then I used printables from Party Planning Center (pinned here) for the hat and pot of gold. These were also used on the large magnetic canvas.
The scrapbook page has pictures from last year's St. Patrick's Day. Wasn't I so huge at 34 weeks pregnant!?

The banner was inspired by a 4 leaf shamrock banner found at The Crafting Chicks - pinned here. I just made mine with 3 leaves each because I either ran out of paper or I was too tired to make more. Then I added some die cut shamrocks on the end for a different look.

All of these were made for my 2nd Saturday class I teach =)
