It feels good to be challenged, it feels good to make something, it feels good to peel stickers and stick them.
I made this for Point Blank Period a new challenge blog started by the one and only
Double S.
Scrapbooking has a chunk of my heart that can ONLY be filled by scrapbooking. Writing in my journal and using masking tape to adhere little snippets of my life holds a chunk of my heart also, but its just not the same. So it felt nice to make this page.

I have a huge box of Bento supplies on my way from the beautiful California from a very thoughtful friend. She totally scored and I can't wait to make the cutest lunches for my boys. (Sean still chuckles @ all this Bento talk and finds it hilarious that I am going to put a superhero stamp on Jude's banana, or put little shark picks through Bing's pepperoni) But hey...Its all about finding the creative in the seemingly mundane right? I mean its not only to give my kids a little bit of fun during their lunch hour and to show them I love them, but its also for me. Because I think its fun. And there is nothing wrong with that.
