Boardgames and Bling

Morning all!

Hope you had a wonderful day yesterday. I definitely did. I got a chance to sit down and play with some yummy Magistical Memories chipboard. Can I just tell you that I love this stuff! I made a this cute little name plate for Katie using the two largest brackets in the fancy frames pack.

I covered both of the pieces with patterned paper and then distressed the edges with a file and white paint. I also used one of the butterflies from the Flutterby packet. After covering it with paper I added stickles to the pattern paper to give is a little extra bling.

The girls have been playing so many boardgames lately and I have to tell you I am loving it. Don't get me wrong, it is sweet watching them play American Girls and I even enjoy playing the mom or teacher once in a while. I do love sitting down and playing a game with them a tad bit more. Did you see that Toys R Us had a bunch of their board games on sale for $9? What a steal! This was last week but you might want to check it out and see if they are still on sale. My mom got the girls Sorry (to replace ours that was mine as a kid and falling a part) and she also got Life. K has Life on her DS so I know that one will be a hit. I have to admit, Life is one of my favorite games too. I think we are going to get this game too. She loves the I Spy books so I think it will be perfect.

What about you? What board games do you just love?
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a fabulous week!

Lisa, I bet you'd love a game called Apples to Apples! There's an adult and a children's version, and it's loads of fun! We also enjoy a really old fashioned game that you don't hear much about any more - dominoes! We have a set of double 9's (blank (zero) through 9), and the scores can get kind of crazy sometimes! Blessings, Becky G.

Beautiful project with the chipboard! I like Life too, and monopoly.

Monopoly is the game I loved as a child - we don't play many board games now as it is not something my husband enjoys. Love the name plate!
