Homecoming Traditions, a Cosmo Cricket LO, & YMH!


Oh, I just love these photos of our kiddo. Are they not adorable? I knew these pics would be perfect on a LO for my Your Memories Here DT post this week. Kiddos grow up so fast & these photos are from last fall; taken in our yard right before freshman homecoming. It was definitely time to get them scrapped...lol! He & his girlfriend looked so darn adorable in their homecoming mums, which are very elaborate & a long standing tradition where we live. As you can see, the streamers are very long & some of the girls' hang past their ankles! And yes, they can get very expensive, but this year I think I'm gonna try my hand at making theirs...we'll hope for the best & I'll make sure to let you know how they turn out too. It was so much fun watching them wear them to school that day & then on to the football game where, of course, we won!


I knew I needed something special for these pics, so I turned to the Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 collection. Doesn't it just make ya swoon? I love all things Cosmo Cricket, as y'all know, & the Your Memories Here Online Store has some fab Cosmo Cricket goodies you are sure to love. Especially THIS KIT...you must get one. I have made so many projects from it & literally have a ton of stuff left for even more. Besides, at $10 you can't beat that price! Now please, make me very happy by grabbing up one of the kits for yourself & sharing with me your lovely creations!! Also, the YMH Store is now carrying Tim Holtz Ideology & Distress Inks, plus some Stickles by Ranger! Ooohhh, I am so excited...lol!
