Pie Madness

I'm getting ready for the big day--they put me in charge of the rolls, jello salad, yams, and four pies! YUM! I'm making Banana Cream, Lemon Meringue, Pumpkin Cheesecake pie, and Chocolate pudding pie (requested by my hubby). Can't wait to gain 10 lbs! hehe

So focusing on how grateful I am, I made this layout about a day Logan and I went out to look for leaves in the backyard a couple years ago. I'm so lucky to have such wonderful boys. I am truly blessed.

Have a great night!

A trip to the library!

Who knew you could end the boredom of a day with a trip to the library? We've been stuck in the house all day and decided a trip to the library with Lynne (my SIL) would be just the ticket! Logan's been talking about it all day--he's going to check out his first book ever. This should be fun!

Finally printed off some of our Halloween pictures and got a couple scrapped last night--love that new Cosmo Cricket line, too spooky! Cardstock by Coredinations, paper by Cosmo Cricket, stamps by Hero Arts, diecuts by Making Memories, lace cardstock by KI memories, stickers by American Crafts, ribbon by Joanns, photocorners by 3L.

Have a wonderful day!!

Peppermint Crunch

Have you tried these new Junior Mints??? YUM!! Very festive too--just finished off the box. Have to grab all the peppermint goodies this time of year!

I'm so excited, my husband told me that he thought our "family" present this year should be a KITCHENAID--oh, yea!! I've been wanting one for 6 years!! So the one I want has to be custom ordered because of the color. I'm headed off to Bed Bath and Beyond tonight to get it done--should be here in two weeks, luckily they have free shipping right now for the holidays!! My family better be ready to eat cookies all season long!! Here's the one I'm getting:

I'm so loving the red, pink and green Christmas combo right now. Not necessarily for my house, but for my scrapbooking!! Here's a fun little card for you--

Have a wonderful day!

It never works out...

exactly like I picture it!! I had a Twilight party tonight--an excuse for "the girls" to come over and eat!! I got a chocolate fountain and everything. Worked all day on getting the house clean, preparing the food, etc. Then the fountain just wouldn't work right. UGH! Of course after everyone leaves, Brandon turns it off and then on again and it works like a charm. That's just the way things go for me. At least we had some fun!!

I've been gone a couple days this week (we went on a quick trip to Utah for Brandon's job) and so I haven't had much time to create, but I have a couple things for you...

I made this layout for the Hero Arts Site--doesn't she look beautiful???? I got to take my SIL's bridal pictures and LOVED this one!!

Here's my CPS card for the week. We were sponsored by KandiCorp and I fell in love with these vintage christmas stamps. Aren't those kids so cute??

And something I've been so excited about--yes, that's me on the cover of the Nov. CARDS issue!! They sent me a ton of copies and Brandon had to put one on display in our home. My family all got copies, they were way excited!!
Thanks for letting me brag--hehe!!
Have a wonderful night!

What to do?

I was reading my friend Melissa's blog the other day and she mentioned that her sewing machine stopped working. I felt bad for her, I thought--man, if mine ever died I'd be so upset because I use mine more than I use any other tool in my house. Then Landen came along and pulled it off the table--it is smashed and doesn't turn on. (he's totally okay--didn't even come close to him) So now I'm in the same boat as Melissa!! Yes, you should feel bad for us!!

But here's some fun Fall cards using my sewing machine before today's disaster. I used the November Addicted Scrappers Card Kit--love the fall colors and all the diecuts that come in this kit. It was so easy to come up with multiple designs!
Thanks for stopping by!

Making Memories

My family got to come and see us this past weekend and we had so much fun eating out and playing games. It's always too short a trip--but I'm so happy that they got to come. I hope it's not long before we see them again. It's hard on my parents to be so far away from the boys. They grow so fast.

So I haven't had much time to create with them visiting, but here's some fun cards I came up with.

My CPS card for the week. Kinda fun to not have a sponsor this week--got to play around!!
Scenic Route and We Are Memory Keepers papers, Rusty Pickle sticker, Hero Arts Stamps, ink, and gems, Prima flower, Making Memories brads, other: jute, button, corner rounder, dictionary page

Here's a page I did of my nephew when he was so tiny--no longer small. He's bigger than my 3 year old!!
Paper by MOD, cardstock by Coredinations, stamps by Hero Arts, buttons and pearls by Hero Arts, pins by Heidi Grace, chipboard word by Maya Road, other: pen, linen string, brads

I got to create a travel page for the Hero Arts site. I found this picture of our trip to Deception Pass in WA a couple years back---soooooooo gorgeous!! Thought I ought to scrap it!! Glad I did, I think it turned out nice! All Hero products except the patterned paper (cosmo cricket) and the cardstock (Coredinations)

Now to finish off my package of Skittles and tuck myself in for the night!!

Oh what a night!

Man, has it really been a week since I last posted? WOW, I need to be better! The boys haven't been taking naps lately so it's been hard to get some scrappy time in-- I've been staying up WAY past my bedtime. Then Landen has been waking me up at 6:30 am, so all in all I'm getting like 6 hours of sleep, but it's worth it for the hobby I love!!

Here's a couple things I've made this past week:

I made this fun thanksgiving table setting over at Hero Arts--You have to go there to see the rest of the set! I fell in love with it and was tempted to do my whole table in it, then realized how much work it would be!!

My CPS card for the week. We were sponsored by Starving Artistamps--go check them out, they have some DARLING stamps!!

Here's a fun layout I did on me--my obsessive worrying!

This one's an old picture of Logan and me, but I love it!

Thanks for stopping by!! I'm off to bed!
