Fool for Him

Hank wants to wish everybody a Happy April Fool's Day. We didn't do a single prank today, but enjoyed gathering ideas for the future when kids can more appreciate. Paper mustache was our only nod at being festive. Might as well make it a fashionable. Actually a Silhouette cut, which is pretty cool. I'd like to cut a whole jar of these for random spontaneous fun. Hank certainly gives his approval.

Easter is just around the corner. Still got your Easter candy left or have you eaten it all? :) I've got a fresh box of Peeps growing stale on top of the fridge. One of my two cards up on the Silhouette blog yesterday featured a "Peeps" cut. Like I could resist. Glitter is the perfect way to add the "sugar".

The other card is super simple. Wanted a contrast from the other. All Silhouette cuts. Can be done in five minutes. Can't beat that.

  1. That peeps card is just adorable. I have a Cricut, but don't know why I didn't ask for a Silhouette instead...the designs are just to die for. You sell them well. ;) I'm saving my pennies!

  2. Oh my GOSH! Hank is losing his "BABY LOOK". He is deffinatly moving into TODDLERHOOD! And not just because of his sporty mustache! He is growing up sooooooooooooo fast. What a great idea for some quiet playtime. How did you get it to stay on????
    Enjoy your Holiday weekend. Hope Hank gets a basket FULL of goodies from the Easter Bunny!

  3. Oh I love the mustache idea... cute as a button and so 'grown up' looking.
    May I ask politely, as a photography teacher, would it be possible for me to get 10 of these mustache cutout? I have a wonderful idea for my students... you may respectfully say 'no'... I would understand, but think of all those creative possibilities?!?
