I think out of all the Christmas presents Rainee received this year... her favorite is this truck!! The first time we saw it was at the Bass Pro Shops for their Christmas Crafts for kids... when she saw it, I think it was love at first sight!! I have to say... that store is very very very clever... they had all their kids toys set up in stations for the kids to play with and of course fall in love with... and to which they would HAVE TO HAVE FOR CHRISTMAS... and probably bug their parents about until they got what they wanted... smart... very very very smart! And that was Rainee.... every week when we'd go for the craft... and before we could leave WE HAD TO play with all the toys! We spent hours there... literally... it was cheap entertainment... but afterward all we heard about was the remote control truck...
Since Christmas, we've spent more time outside just playing with the truck, than any other toy she's ever received. She loves this truck... the only time we haven't played with it was last week with all of the rain. Although, she did try to do it inside... but when she kept hitting the furniture... I had to put an end to it...which made me the 'bad mommy'... to which I got her sad face... to remind me she was unhappy about my decision. Oh well... you can't keep kids happy all the time!
As for the layout... I did it super simple... not much on it... except the pictures of Rainee and her truck... and zoom... zoom... zoom... which I think pretty much tells the story all by itself. On the edging.... I was going to use my sewing machine, but I didn't want to wake everyone in the house so early... so I got out the EK Success Rub-on Transfer... if you've never seen it, it's a solid piece of rub-on you can write with, use stencil with it, draw with it, emboss with it... and me I used one of my EK Success Cutter Bugs to make the fun stitching design... I was so happy I didn't have to get out my sewing machine.... how cool is that. This stuff reminds me of carbon paper... if you've ever used it before there was self carbon paper... you'll know exactly what I mean and how it's works... It's a very cool product. I think I'm going to have to use it more often when I don't want to do a bit of sewing!!
What was the favorite Christmas present in your home this year?
