Yesterday, after my kids got home from school, they settled in for a snack at the counter. While snacking on some of their leftover Easter candy, they thought up a "magical idea" to plant the rest of their jelly beans in the ground. Izzy wants to grow a "bean tree".
I quickly ran to get my camera as the kids gathered up a couple of shovels and a watering can. I had already pinned the perfect sketch earlier in the day from Let's Get Sketchy. This is probably the fastest turn around time I've ever had with a layout. Love it! Sometimes, you just have to be in the moment and capture it quickly. A couple of cute kids and some magic jelly beans comes just in time for the Heart2Heart Magical May Challenge, too!

I looked through my stamp collection and the closest image I could find that resembled a jelly bean shape was actually the bunny nose from a stamp set I won a couple of years ago. I added some liquid glass to give them a jelly bean shine. What do you think?
I love this layout. It is so happy and cheerful and makes me smile. Hope you have a fantastic week!
