ABC Friday: A is for . . .

I wasn't exactly sure what I would focus on for the letter A, so I asked Catherine, age 2, to find letter A things for me.  

(She is getting over a cold, so she isn't at her tip-top-best-photo-opp-self; however, she's wearing a princess dress, so that makes up for it, right!?)

First she found the letter A stamp from her brand new Cookie Monster Play-Doh set.

Then she brought me this caterpillar and said, "Mamma, is this an alligator?"
I was SO proud that she knew alligator started with A that I almost went ahead and said yes.

However, before I could say anything she looked a little closer and exclaimed, "This not an alligator  this a caterpillar!"  My baby is growing up!

She found one more A thing for me, a couple of angels.  

Not to be outdone, *I* found an A item on my desk.  
I'm curious, how many people know what this is?

***UPDATE: Judi figured out what the blue square is!  A Sizzix die cut!***

      From this set to be exact:

  7. my friend's mom had the sizzix machine and after she passed we were going through the craft stuff and found it spent the next hour just cutting stuff out lol

    Love that your daughter helped find things for you to photograph!
    I am glad I came back so now I know what the mystery item on your desk is.
