Sweet Child of Mine – Free Kit/Embellishments

Last week I posted the free papers that go with this kit. I have finally got some embellishments created to go along with it. Embellishments are always tougher for me to create than papers. Perhaps because I utilize papers a lot more in my own scrapping than I do embellishments?

Anyway, here is the updated preview of both the papers and embellishments.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to email and comment. You all make my day.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Sweet Child of Mine – FREE Digital Scrapbook Papers

Wow, I cannot believe it has been over a year since I created a free digital scrapbook kit for you all to download! I guess Bree was born not long after the last kit, so my evenings aren’t as leisurely or free as they used to be. 🙂

But you can’t be mad at Bree, since she was the inspiration for this latest kit. LOL.

I have a few coordinating embellishments that I hope to post later.

Super Mario Pictograph

For our Math curriculum, we are using Saxon Math. The recommended assignment for Friday was to create a Winter Activities pictograph, graphing favorite indoor vs. outdoor winter activities. When making my lesson plans the night before, I decided that it would be a lot more fun for Adrianna to make a Super Mario pictograph instead.

In her work box, I put 8 squares I had cut out of some light blue card stock. When she opened that drawer, she was instructed to draw 8 of her favorite Mario characters. (I did not include the chart I’d made for the project nor did I tell her what we would be doing with the drawings, as I didn’t want to skew the results in any way.)

After she had drawn 8 characters, I gave her a glue stick and the chart and told her we were going to make a pictograph and that she needed to graph out the “good guys” on the first line and the “bad guys” on the lower line.

Final result – Good Guys 5 (Mario, Princess Daisy, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad) vs. Bad Guys 3 (Goomba, Bowser, Magikoopa).
