so, most of you know that i work at home, doing daycare and taking care of little ones. i also work in my scrapbooking job when i have free moments here and there. it's nice when the two jobs mix, and something cute comes out of it. this is one of those things.

i was asked to do a layout about daily routines. i loved the idea, and thought it was the perfect opportunity to document what a normal day is like around this joint. i'm a very easy going kind of daycare provider. i'm not strict, and i don't have a ton of rules. but we do still manage to have a routine of sorts. i thrive on routine, and the kids honestly do better when they know what to expect and what comes next.
i think 12:00 is my favorite part of the day ;)
i thought these little bumble bees were so cute, and adhered them using pop dots for some extra lift off the page. this rub-on was all one piece, but i wanted to spread it out and fit the curve of the pattern paper. so i simply cut the words apart and worked them in between the bumble bees.
this little, simple technique was featured in the magazine. layering letter stickers together, to make them stand out more on the page. i choose the same letter stickers, in two different colors, and offset them just a tad bit for my title.
