I’m leaving on a (infant friendly) jet plane

Standard

So…  We just got back from our summer mainland extravaganza.  It was exciting.  But,  I was a bit nervous taking the Littles on their 2nd airline flight.  (Their first was only HNL to Maui and they were only 2.5 weeks old… I think they forgot. ) Anyway… I wanted to make a little gifty favor for our seat mates.  Just a little something to break the ice and to get them to think the Littles were more cute than screaming airplane passengers.  So…  Here it is:

I used those awesome chevron printed bags and filled them with Blondie Bites and ear plugs.  Decorated them with one of my favorite sets: Zoo babies…   I wrote a little rhyme and signed them from Zeke and Hannah. 

Fresh baked cookies on a red eye help tremendously.  And there was a group of passengers that sat next to us on our connecting flight as well.   Those poor people…  
Anyway,  the Littles did very well.  Despite some major weather delays.  And I have to mention the wonderful flight attendants on American Airlines.  They were a tremendous help.  They went way above their job description to help us.  Service like that makes traveling so much more bearable.

Well, with this month I’m particularly happy about because it features one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE stamp sets.  TAPE IT.  It’s a stamp set that looks like WASHI TAPE.  Be still my heart.  I”m still a bit of a newbie when it comes to the uses of washi tape, but it is becoming one of my all time favorites…. ANYWAY, having the stamp set allows you to do more things… you can stamp over text, etc… and make it in any color.
