Imaginesence YUMMY!

SO I'm totally flooded with this yummy paper. I went and bought the paper pack when it was on sale Thanksgiving day and then in my kit I found a stack of it too! Love the shabby feel, so comfy and cozy it really does feel like christmas. This kit totally rocked with the fun custom stamps and rubons.

We're just hangin' around the house today. I need to clean and do some laundry, but besides that I've got some scrappin' to do! I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Finally took our pictures!

After a long week, we were finally able to take our Christmas pictures on Saturday. I really like the way they turned out. Although my hair looks a little poofy. Just ignore that! I just loved that picture with Logan and the lollipop! SOooo fun! I've decided not to do a letter, just a handmade card. SO with that, I've been working my butt off. They turned out so cute. I'll post a pic tomorrow. I want to see your christmas cards too! Link up so I can see!!

Sketch This Cards 34

Here's my fun card for Janelle's sketch over at Sketch this Cards. Go check it out and play along. We love to see what you create! I found these awesome glittery snowflakes at the dollar store and thought they'd make great cards. Add a ton of glitter and what do you get? A winterwonderland card. LET IT SNOW! We're just hangin out at the house today. I hope you all have a great day!

Couple of layouts

I've been mad busy around here getting stuff done for a craft fair that was a total bust. Didn't sell one thing. Of course, mostly elderly ladies came. Definetly not the right market for scrapbooking! So what do I do with 9 million cards? hmmm. I hope you all had a great weekend. Here's a couple layouts to give some inspiration for the week!

Okay isn't this totally the cutest? Brandon's Grandma gave Logan a dollar the other day and we took him to the dollar store to pick out a toy. He chose this little guitar and he's been obsessed with it ever since. He would turn on the radio and lip sync along while strumming the guitar. My little rock star!!

Have a rockin day!

Paper loop christmas tree

Okay so here's my fun new christmas craft. I've been seeing everyone make them! SOOO easy and fun to make, although me and the hot glue gun don't get along very well. I think I burnt all of my fingers! Totally worth it though. Found this great rusted snowflakes at the local craft store and they went perfectly on top! I have no idea how I"m going to store them though! I posted instructions over at Serendipity Scrapbooks Go make one of your own!!

How many days left?

How many days left until Christmas? I've got to get shopping! SO much to do in so little time. I know you all feel the same way. We had a great Thanksgiving filled with lots of good food and relaxation! It's nice to not worry about anything, but playing games with your family and putting up the christmas decorations. I even braved the stores the day after Thanksgiving and got some major deals! It was sooooo cold though!

Here's a fun layout I made a while back. I'll post some new stuff tomorrow! Have a great day!

Already in the Christmas spirit!

So along with listening to Christmas music already, I've been doing some fun Christmas crafts. Here's my take on the newest sketch of the week over at Sketch This Cards. Come join in on the fun! I love to see what you create!

I'm trying to get ready for a craft fair in a couple weeks but it seems like when I ever have a deadline my creativity goes sooooo slow! I'm hoping to have something to sell by then at least! Everyone is loving my paper christmas tree and wants me to sell them, but they are SOOO much work. We'll see if I have time.

Going birthday shopping for Brandon today. Luckily he made me a list of things he wants. Every year I try to be creative and get him something he doesn't expect, but he ends up not using them. So this year, I'll stick to the list!!

Have a great day!

Busy week

This week is going to be crazy for me! Brandon's birthday is on Thanksgiving this year! WOW! Lot's to do! I need to go shopping for him so bad. At least I'm not in charge of the feast! I'm just making the side dishes, and of course pies. I can't wait for my turkey. It seems like this is the only time of year we have it. I definetly need to make it again this year. You just can't beat turkey sandwiches!

SO here's some more fun cards to look at. I've got some layouts coming soon. I'm just not very good at taking pictures of them. Oh, and go check out They have the coolest contest and great challenges! Go take a peak and see what the site's about! I love it there!!

Here's some fun cupcakes I made the other day with my friend Patty. She's just starting her cake decorating class and asked me to come give her a couple pointers. ALthough this is the first time I've made frosting in Idaho and I couldn't get the consistency right. Guess I'll have to practice.

HEre's a couple more cards I made for a few mag calls. With any luck they'll get accepted! Now that I"ve gotten most of my deadlines out of the way, I get to enjoy my friday! Relaxing and doing some major scrappin!!

Have a lovely day!

Finally.... Sun!!!

We finally got some sunshine today so I was able to take some pics of my cards I've been working on. Here's a couple and I'll post more each day!! That's the only bad thing about the clouds, no sun in the house. I did just order my new flash and a Lightsphere so that should help. I can't wait to get it, I'll be stalking the mailman until then!

Lot's of deadlines today, my poor Logan will have to entertain himself for now. I think he just built himself a fort down the hall! sooo cute! I just love it when he acts like a boy!

I hope you all have a great day! Hugs!!!

Sunday Sunday

Unfortunetly I had to start off the day with an allergy attack. Yuck. SO I had to take allergy meds and that made me sooooo sleepy. THen Logan had to throw a royal fit before church. He absolutely refused to get dressed or even let us change his diaper. Just lovin' the terrible twos!

Well here's some fun cards I made recently. I'm doing some fun christmas projects this week, I'll be sure to post them when I'm done!

Have a great sunday!

I'm feeling very crafty today. I've been having christmas decorations run through my head all night! I think I'll be heading to the craft store!! Do you have any fun crafts your working on? I need to figure out what we are going to do for our christmas pic this year. I'll post them when I decide. I think I want to wait for snow though. Much more seasonal.

Here's my take on the CPS sketch of the week. Loved the fun turquoise in this paper! Thanks for dropping by! Have a great day!

Lazy day

We're having such a lazy day this morning. Got to enjoy a bowl full of delicious Cocoa Pebbles with my little boy. He just loves special treats. I think we'll even get out of the house today and do some shopping! I need a new 8.5" x 11" album. Need to go search the nearest LSS. Thank goodness for Roberts, 40% off an item each day. Man that saves me so much money!

So it's tuesday and I've got a card for you. Check out the sketch at Sketch This Cards! Come play along! WE love to see all your work and now that christmas is just around the corner, I need to start my christmas cards. Let me see your fun christmas cards and give me some inspiration! have a great day everyone!

Here's my take on the CPS for last week. I've been really sick for the past 4 weeks so I'm a little behind! Luckily they figured out what's wrong with me. Unfortunetly it's Giardia, but at least they were able to find it and treat me fast. I'm feeling 95% better! only 4 more days of Meds and i'll be as good as new!

I hope you are all enjoying your lazy sunday afternoon. We're going to a friends house for dinner and games, then after Logan goes down for bed, I'm scrapping! It's been a while since I've had the energy and I've got a couple new goodies to play with!

It's the first of the month...

So time to see what Serendipity Scrapbooks' new kit is all about! It's called I Deserve it All and it's packed with tons of goodies! Look at all this fun paper! Perfect for Christmas pictures and fun cards!

We had so much fun Trick or Treating last night with Logan although we didn't get to go for long because it was freezing and he kept coughing. When we got home he wanted to open all his candy and take a bit of everything. Such a two year old! I just loved to watch him walk up to the door with his daddy and say Trick or treat! Sooooo fun!

It's Tuesday...

That means we get to rock out on Janelle's new Sketch! Totally loved this one! My card uses Hero Arts Stamps, AMM patterned paper, KI Memories ribbon. Come join in and play! Link up so we can see your work!

I'm so excited for tonight. We're taking Logan trunk or treating at our church. He keeps talking about putting on his Dinosaur costume. I'm so glad he likes it, maybe he'll even keep it on! It's so funny how when he's excited, I get excited!

Thank you CPS!

Wooohoooo! Look what I got in the mail yesterday! I won this awesome sketch book during their last contest! Love this thing! Thank you so much CPS! Packed with such fun ideas, I can't wait to get creating!

I'm just taking it easy this weekend, I'm still not getting over my flu, it's actually gotten worse. But I did feel good long enough to go to the pumpkin patch with the family! Logan had so much fun picking out the perfect pumpkin. Then we went over to the hay maze and they got to wander through it. It was the perfect day for it too! We bought one of those light kits for Logan to use on his pumpkin so he wouldn't have to carve it. He had so much fun hammering in all the pegs! Brought me back to my Light Bright days!

I've been creating...

For some wierd reason I've been fighting this horrible flu for the past 3 weeks. Ugh! I hate being sick. I'm hoping that it will go away soon so I can get back to enjoying my life! I did get a chance to make a few cards though. Here's some fun ones using Hero Arts stamps. They have so much fun stuff there. Go check their stuff out!

Well, back to the bed I go. It's not easy to relax when your a mom. No time to be sick!

I"ve been tagged!

Thanks Melissa for tagging me! I had so much fun reading your facts! Yipes!! That means that I need to share 7 interesting facts about myself. Hmmmmmmm....

1.) I LOVE hot cocoa. I drink it almost everyday. My favorite flavor it Chocolate mint. Sometimes I just put candy canes in my regular hot chocolate.

2.) I placed 10th in the Nation for Restaurant Managment in DECA back in High school. They even paid for me to go to Disneyland for the competition.

3.) I love to bake. Cookies, brownies, cakes, etc. SO fun! I'm even a cake decorator, taking my last class!

4.) I was a cheerleader for 6 years, captain for 2. SOme of the best years of my life! Unfortunetly, it didn't make me like football! My hubby doesn't understand that!

5.) I'm really into children's books. They are more interesting to me than adult books. I have a small library of over 400 chapter books. And I'm just starting out! I think that my children will benefit greatly from that!

6.) I'm totally OBSESSED with Halloween! I go a little crazy. It makes me feel like a kid again, although i can't stand Haunted Houses! I just close my eyes and run through it! Total waste of money!

7.) If I don't get a full night's sleep, I get really physically ill. I start throwing up and everything! Ugh! I wonder what I'll feel like with two little ones that wake me up!

So there we go! Now I get to do the tagging!! Here's the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I think it's a doughnut day...

I'm sitting here at the computer while my son and hubby are still asleep in bed. I couldn't fall back to sleep, the rain outside was just calling to me. I love rainy mornings, something about being warm and cozy inside the house. Then I started thinking about breakfast and how we have a new doughnut shop in town. It might be the morning to try that place out!

If the weather clears up tonight we'll be going to take some pics of Logan in the leaves. I've been dying to do that all week. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with me. After all I did just get me a new camera, Canon Digital Rebel XTI, such a beauty! I'm slowly learning how to use it. Although my pictures are turning out really dark, I'm wondering if my settings need to be changed.

I hope you all have a wonderful saturday, and go get you a doughnut! You deserve it!
