Monster Memory Game


Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. We went camping, and what beautiful weather we had. We had a lot of fun with the boys, but last night ended badly. We discovered that while we were gone, we were robbed. Not the kind of robbery where they ransack everything in the house. They wanted one thing...money. Not that we had a lot of it, but they stole our credit cards to get cash from ATM's in the area. They were successful! We had the police here late last night doing a report. This afternoon we have to go to the police station to watch video from one of the places they used the cards at to see if we can ID the guys. We are pretty certain we know who did it, so the ID part will be easy. Not a good ending to a good weekend though, and Cameron isn't handling it well. He is so young and he has his own version of what he thinks happened. I hope he has a good day at school. Anyway... here is a fun little Halloween gift that I put together for my nephew's. The box is a mini card box, so after printing the template on cardstock and putting it together- I decorated it and filled the box with mini memory cards. I used Batty For You for the cards. I stamped each stamp twice. Then I cut the cards out and "laminated them" with clear contac paper for durability. There are a total of 16 cards in the box. They fit perfectly. I hope the boys like them!

Erica,
I am so sorry to hear about your evening. That happened to us when I was a little girl. It still scares me. So give him an extra hundred hugs. Love your memory game. Great job.
