More fun with Carousel Notes!

I can't seem to get enough of these carousel notes! For this spread I cut the Groovy Guava Carousel note in half and drew journaling lines on it. One half of the note is on one page and the other is on the second page. I got this idea from Vickieky. You can see her page spread here:

The cutie in the photo is my niece, Leah.

Stamps: Taffy alphabet, Best Friends alphabet, Best Friends numbers
Ink: Ruby Red
Paper: Groovy Guava, Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava monochromatic paper, Ruby Red
Other: Groovy Guava carousel notes, boho blossoms punch, silver brads, 5 petal flower punch

The carousel notes are only available through the end of this month. You can order them through the Occasions mini catalog. I'm hoping there will be some of these in the new catalog. It will have to be different colors though cuz this years' in colors will be gone.

Do your kids like nerf guns? My boys love them! Sam had some money saved and wanted one badly so I took him with me to Target. He really wanted a long shot nerf gun. He's been talking about it for a year but they didn't have one so he settled on another nerf gun. The one he bought broke when he was putting it together. Back to Target it went. I returned it at a different Target and THIS one had the Long shot. I picked it up for Sam and brought it home ready to play the hero. He was very excited! I went off to play Bunko for the night. The next morning he tells me the Long shot keeps jamming. We're going to take this back to Target too. Why do they have to make these toys so cheap? This was a $30 Nerf gun. I expect better quality than this. Now he's itching to buy another toy. The money is burning a hole in his pocket!

What a darling page! Cute idea to cut the notes in half!! I hope they are in the new catty too - and I am really going to miss the in colors!! I agree about the toy thing too, it should definitely last longer than one day!
