Father's Day Gift Ideas

How cute are these!
My daughter drew a couple of pictures for her dad, and we made notepads!
I took them to Kinko's and had them made 2 pads 50 sheets each and they bound them, it cost $7.00 for two note pads.
I found this tutorial for making your own note pads at Chica and Jo.

Found this cute coupon book at Disney, it is the old style coupon books that Disney World and Disney Land used to use.
Just print, cut and staple!
Happy Father's Day!

Mermaid Camp

Sorry for not posting in a while, Summer is here and school is out! My daughter, mother and I went to Mermaid Camp! Actually, I didn't get to participate, even though I would have loved it! It is a camp for girls between the ages of 7-14 year old. It is for two days and they receive  a mermaid makeover and get to participate in a show.
These photos are from the "live mermaid show"

Here is the group of girls who participated in the camp. 

Now here are the photos of "Mermaid Sabrina"....

Here is a video of the Little Mermaid Sabrina!
I think a mermaid party is in the future!!!!!
