Monday Made-It!

My favorite linky! :) I have 3 great projects to share with you today!
Thanks so much to Tara @ 4th Grade Frolics for keeping us all motivated this summer!
One of my best friends since 3rd grade is expecting her first! TWINS! A boy and a girl! I love the idea of getting a piggy bank for babies, and it's so much fun to decorate them! She's going with a woodsland theme for the nursery so I decorated the banks accordingly.

I just used Sharpies, then baked at 350 for 25 minutes. The teal was turquoise, but darkened after baking. I stuck in some letter stickers, so she can add the names once her and hubby make a decision! :)
A little sweetie wrote this last year, and I knew I had to save it and frame it. I just used scrapbook paper and glitter washi tape.
I've seen numerous Flip Books to hand out to parents at Open House/Meet the Teacher/etc, but none of them quite met my needs. I need simple. So I created this version. All of the text is editable! You will be done with it in 5 easy peasy steps! I also used freebie fonts from LuckeyFrog, so you can make yours just as cute as mine!! And I have it posted for FREE for 24 hours! Yahoo! Make sure to leave feedback, and share with your friends!

What did you create this week?! Go link up! :)
