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!

Totally inspired

I'm feeling totally inspired today. So many people around me in the scrapbooking world that are super talented! I'm actually feeling a change in my scrap "style" and that's always so exciting! I'm notorious for getting down on myself for stupid reasons, mostly feeling that I'm not meeting people's standards. Luckily, I'm surounded by people who love me and support me no matter what's going on in my life. Thanks to all of you who have made such sweet comments on my blog. It really does make my day!

Love this picture

Okay don't you just love this picture of Logan. He looks so happy! He truly is the joy of my life. The tree, dots, and letter stamps are from Hero Arts. I just love working with their stuff! Logan has been having so much fun playing in the leaves. He's constantly begging us to go outside, but with him just getting over a cold, I don't want him outside for long. I'm going to have to get some fun fall pics this week! The leaves here in Idaho are INCREDIBLE! i just love fall!

It's a....

We just found out on Thursday that we are having a BOY!! We are so totally excited and can't wait for him to get here. Logan just loved seeing his little brother on the ultrasound and kept asking if he could hug the baby. We've already chosen a name, Landon Allen Smith. I thought it sounded so cute, Landon and Logan. I guess I'll have to get used to doing boy scrap pages! No butterflies or flowers for a couple more years!! Landon is due Feb. 14th so I only have a couple months left to get ready for this little one!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Well, yesterday that is! I was soooo sick with the flu yesterday that I didn't get to make one card. Luckily it was a 24 hour bug and now I'm completely back to normal! So I got out my supplies and made a few cards for a couple challenges! This was soooo completely fun, I got a bunch of new paper the other day that I couldn't wait to get my hands on! Yummy!

The first card was a felt challenge

The second card was a favorite stamp challenge.

The third card was a recipe challenge.

The fourth card was a Monochromatic challenge.

The fifth card was a Shimmer and bling challenge.

Here are my creations!!
