What's up? chicky babes

This is what I've been working on the past couple of days. I really enjoyed doing this page, love the browns and blues together. I've used a Hambly screen print transparency, Heidi Swapp rubons and felt flowers, prima flowers, queen & co felt, bazzill edges, hero arts stamp, kaisercraft pearls. I used spellbinders to cut the 'chicky babes' sign and my slice to cut the 'what's up tag'.
So I made a resolve to myself after the Heidi Swapp day that I was going to use my stamps on most layouts I do, which I have done again. Another one to blow the dust off of. I've also challenged myself to try and use my Slice on most pages I do as well. No use that baby collecting dust.
I thought I would include some pics of my fave tool. This is my Basic Grey magnetic mat that I bought here, I blogged about this a few post back. I can't stop telling people about this. Am so in love with this little black mat. In the pics I've taken you can see that the mat can be held upright and the magnets don't budge at all. It really is like having extra hands. Everything stays in place til I'm ready to stick.
Great day today with my separation anxiety from Jordan. When I picked him up this afternoon, we stayed back a little to watch where and when the bus comes and then followed it home. Feeling really confident about him getting this now, all though I think the bus driver thought I was a stalking loony.
He also announced today that he made a friend :) :) ..... v.happy mum.
I got him a key cut on Monday and put it on a billabong lanyard for him.....I swear it was Christmas. He had this clutched in his hand ready to go when he opened the car door today....I think no one else will be allowed to unlock the front door for long time. hhhmmm...sigh... serenity, really happy mum!!!
