Good morning...and happy Friday!  I'm back...with something lovely for this week's TGIF Challenge!

 It's #TGIF112..and it's a challenge all about the boys!  Big boys or little boys...this week is all about them!

Click the image above to go to the TGIF Challenges blog for all the details.  You'll be able to see what the TGIF designers have shared to inspire you...and you'll be able to see what other challengers have created, too!  But first...here's my Let's Hear It For the Boys challenge project...or should I say projects? 



So...we're lucky grandparents in that we get to spend some time each summer with our grandsons...Timothy and Kenneth...and each week I like to to surprise them with a small gift.  We're doing a lot of reading this summer...so this week's gift is a new book...and this week's TGIF Challenge was the perfect opportunity to do some fun wrapping.   Timothy is 7-1/2, and he is an amazing reader!  His summer goal is to read 500 pages each week!  He reads most of them...but we also take turns reading, too.  A couple of weeks ago I asked him why he had left his books in the car, and he looked at me like I was crazy and said "I read in the car, too, Nana!"  I don't know what I was thinking!   Ha!  And Kenneth...he's five...and he's all about dinosaurs, super heroes and Star Wars.

I started with the tags...and I pulled out Celebrations Thinlints for the base, the Pieces & Patterns stamp set, and the Coffee Break DSP.   The dinosaur is for Kenneth, of course...and the bear is for Timothy.  I'm completely smitten with the hello there sentitment...and it's actually what I say to the boys each morning!
 

I made matching note cards, too...


and I LOVE how fun they are.  Sweet, simple and full of color...just like those little grandsons of ours!
