Paper Tweets

First off I have to tell you guys how excited i am that...

Kori is moving on to week 2 on One Month To Win It!

She made a fun mirror out of Jenga blocks and its adorable. I am so proud of her!!!

Well next i have a new quick and easy project i made and i love it already. With my husband and I working off schedules we only get to see each other a lil bit in between work and during lunch. We only get to tell each other quick stories about our days and then we get to enjoy the weekend where we have so much to tell each other we forget a lot of stuff that's happened throughout the week. Well i had a notebook i saved all of Isaac's new words he has been saying and our personal blog helps him see what we do during the week but we still forget things. I even write on the bathroom mirrors with a dry erase but there are still some things i cant remember.
As i was looking for a gift for my nephews birthday i came across the cutest thing. Paper Tweets! I don't have a twitter account but the idea was so cute and a perfect way to share what goes on while each of us are gone.

If you haven't entered our drawing you really should. I have the digital studio software and i use it all the time. I don't scrapbook much but i use it for everything else. Anyways i threw this together really quickly using that software since they have some of the cutest fonts. I made this up pretty quickly cause i had so much to write down. My son was being a goof and i wanted to write them all down asap. I made each "tweet sheet" half a page since most of the notes we leave around the house are that size.

I wrote name and location and at the bottom i added the time and day. I like to know the day i even write the day on any picture my son draws so he can know when he did them. Anyways on to the cover

I used some plain gray card stock for the back and overlapped in the front and then added some cute scrapbook paper to the front. it was all scraps so i didn't waste any paper.

I need to write something on the front but I'm stumped on what it should say. Any suggestions?

My son found some cookies I had saved for my husband and insisted on having one. He looked at me with those big blue eyes and i couldn't resist.

I had this sitting on my counter and when my husband got home I heard him laughing in the other room as he read it. It made my whole day!

I think I might make a tiny one that I can throw in my back pocket for while I'm on the go. How would you change it? I would love to hear your ideas!

P.S. Thanks for all the ideas on the grocery cards. I have the cards done now I just need to print them out!
