Something Crafty Again!?

Ok, so we know I'm not the most creative girl, but I can't help that I see something and think I can actually do it. Simple things. This idea I know is not original, but I thought of it on my own. ; ) I got tired of feeding Zach at restuarants with nothing to put his food on, so I decided to make him a placemat. Here is the finished product...

I put his birthday at the top, name in the middle, and then "Bruiser" at the bottom because that is one of his nicknames.

I also made one for my youngest niece Abby (I thought Allie and Mary were a little too old for one!). Her birthday is on the top, "drama" on the side, and "girly" on the bottom. I thought this summed Abs up! Hope she likes it.

Of course I couldn't leave baby Garrett out! His birthday is on the top of his placemat, name in the middle, and "g-man" on the bottom.
These placemats look pretty simple, but oh no! Not with me making them. What I thought were stickers when I bought them turned out to be rub ons. Well...I couldn't figure out how to get them to "rub on", so I just decided to cut the numbers and letters out. ; ) At least I had fun.

I couldn't leave this cutie out of my post...Zach is already perfecting the Sunday afternoon nap on the couch!

Those are so cute!
Were the rubons the scrapbooking type? To use those, you have to peel away the backing sheet (on the front) then turn them over and put them image side down onto the surface you want them to adhere to, then, using a popsicle stick (or similar) rub over the top of them for a few seconds then peel away the shiny plastic covering, and the rubon should be attached!
Sorry if this made you even more confused, but it's more difficult to explain than it is to actually do, lol!

Ok, Katie...that picture of him...a little man taking his Sunday afternoon nap. Only thing better would be if he were in a recliner instead of the couch.
