Title help, please

This is my take on a sketch by Liz Qualman, I flipped it and changed it a smidge.

I need some suggestions for a title if you talented peps can help me out.
A little about the pics...It was in Sept. & we were at a small shopping village in Smithville, NJ... the picture was taken in a gazebo where we were feeding the ducks and fish. This was a first for my son (feeding the fish & ducks). He was 10 months at the time. Thank you for any help.

Teacher Appreciation Gift ~ Candy Bar Purse

Aren't these the cutest things!!!!! This is one of the gifts for the teacher and her 2 para's, it is a candy bar purse... Yolie (check out her blog she shares some great files to cut w/ SCAL) sent me a link to Crazy for Crafting when I cried for help. This crafty lady has a Design Studio & Gypsy cut file for this adorable purse up for grabs. The card pocket just has a little card (which is provided with the cut file) I stamped "many Thanks" and will have my daughter sign it along with my husband and myself.
I also have a flower project in the works for another day for Teacher Appreciation week. Gift schedule that was sent home... (not sue why they sent home a schedule, but I will follow)
Monday: Flowers
Tuesday: School Supplies
Wednesday: Chocolate - had to present it in a cute way :0)
Thursday : My choice
Friday: Make your own card (kids)
Hope you like them!

I need HELP!!! ~ 2nd post - scroll down for SVG download

Has anyone seen a candy bar purse SVG file? I saw it somewhere and forgot to save the place I saw it... I wanted to make 3 of them for teacher appreciation week... I got a letter home from Pre-K stating - if we would like to participate in showing our teachers some love to follow the little calender that they gave us...

Mon : flowers - I have an idea for that

Tues: chocolate - would like to make those purses

Weds: School supplies - thats a no-brainer

Thurs: our choice - no ideas yet

Fri: kids make their own cards...that's easy

Aliens SVG to use with last weeks file

Here is a couple of Aliens that I converted to an SVG and would like to share.

Beach lo /

I am still playing scrap catch up & will be for a long time... I am working on whatever hits me, but I am about 3 yrs behind UGH!!! Overwhelming at times, but life happens. Anywho ~ I entered this one on the Piratical Scrappers Challenge - the challenge was to use some bling, so I added some turquoise skittles for a little sparkle. I went off of a sketch by Valerie Salmon ~ Got Sketch. Hope you like it. The jelly fish represents all the Jellies that my daughter and my BF's 2 boys found washed up on the beach that day. All the cuts are made with SCAL... If you don't have it, seriously!, you have to get it -- LOVE IT!!!!

2nd post today ~

I made another card today for my Mom's Birthday on Wednesday, which is 2 days after mine. I used an adorable Bunny paper piecing from Jills Paper Gems 2010 Easter Collection. Check out her designs they are adorable!! Thanks for looking.

Well I finally got my scrap area some~what

back, so I decided to try my hand at a digi-image card. This is a first for me, I think it came out pretty good. I used BIC permanent markers to color the stamp, they come out a lot darker than the Copics that I see alot of peps use, but heck I can't afford those copics, they are a small fortune! I used a freebie digi image from Bugaboo Stamps, she has some adorable stamps, check her out. I hand wrote the Happy Birthday because I did not have any stamps that said Happy Birthday & I had already attached theMS scallop punch to the card so I could not run the paper thru the printer. I used SCAL to cut the leaves, the flowers are material with skittles in the middle. Ialso added some stickles after I took the pic. I am pretty happy with the way it came out. Hopefully I will get to play some more today after we do a little yard work.
Have a great weekend!

I included the top planet only in this converted image, you could probably use this as a digi image too... I don't know to much about digi images so thats why I say probably.

I'm jonesing!!!!!

I am laying my rug in the basement.. yes me! well,  to a point... my neighbor is going to help glue the seam & maybe kick it (he is a professional carpet installer), but I cut it and layed it down padding and all.  I didn't do to bad, I think, well I hope ~ LOL. Anyway,  my point is all the stuff on the floor down there is in my craft area floor and counters... toys, cabinets, you name it, it is probably there... I can't even walk into my area.... so I am jonesing to scrap... I keep drooling over all the beautiful things on the blogs I follow.  Just thought I would share my sorrow.  Hugs!
