I did take a picture of the lights, but its just a big colorful blur. The camera wouldnt take pictures when I wanted it to. This is the last picture I got.
I tried to take pictures of the youth, my oldest son in particular...but my camera refused to take any more pictures. Note to self, check the camera battery and make sure you have the card in the camera before you go somewhere.
Thanks for stopping by! Leave me a comment and say hi!

I made some Amish Friendship bread the other day. I had seen a publication that had bread done like this by Melissa Phillips. I thought it was so cute that I did it too.

This first one is my kids with my dh. I bought the wig my dh is wearing for the kids, but none of them would wear it. Brady didnt make it very long as a "girl". So by the end of the night he was a baseball player.

Our Guest DT for October is Kristi and she has challenged us to use paint on our layout. I have yet to get that challenge done but I still have a week LOL. Im also hoping to get this months contest challenge done for RMH (to use no patterned paper on a layout).
Hope you are having a great day!

Tuesday was upload day at HSS and this is what I came up with for my upload. I decided to use Dream Street paper this month. The Brady layout is made from the Jack collection, the New Skateboard layout is made from the Rock-n-Roll collection, and the Address book is made using the Her Own Wings collection, by Dana Miron, who was our Guest DT for the last two months. Also I just got me the Base Camp font for my cricut and I used it on the skateboard layout and the address book...I love that font! Thanks for looking!

The crop for HSS ended at midnight CST and I got my own challenge done (see previous post) and this card, but I didnt get much else done before that time...but I hope to get around to doing the rest of the challenges because they were great ones!
CMK had a crop going and their deadline was today at 1 pm so I did their 4 challenges they had posted and came up with these. This first one was supposed to be a scraplift...my card looks nothing like the original. Hers had flowers and stems...it was cute. . She had used a chipboard fence on her card, so I took the fence idea and made a fall card. I used chatterbox paper and the paper piecing patterns are from Kaylas Kreations...I just love her stuff. This second card was a sketch. I loved the sketch and I love this line of Scenic Route paper...probably my favorite line of SR at this moment. It looks pretty close to the sketch.
This was also a sketch challenge. I used Scrapworks paper on this one. Again, it looks pretty similar to the sketch. This was a scraplift challenge. It was almost 2:30 in the morning when I made this card so it turned out to be pretty simple. It resembles the card I was lifting from, but I wouldve sewn on it had I not been so tired. I used a flower and part of the words from Junkitz paper.
I didnt win but it was fun and I accomplished something. TFL!
It was fun to make, if you decide to make it...be sure to look at the sizes on the template...mine did not print out the right size and I had to resize it. I also made some cards, but I will have to upload those in a bit.

The upload for HSS ended up being postponed til next tuesday so I cant share my newest layouts til then.
RMH has a new contest for October to use no patterned paper...just cardstock. Im hoping to get that challenge done this month. Last month it was lessons learned...I found that to be hard for me. The ladies that did it had great lessons that they learned.
I have been subbing lots and getting more and more behind in everything else. I dont know how you ladies that work all day every day do it! You must be more organized than I am. I went to work, stayed after school so Brady could retake some tests, came home and took Tyler to scouts, helped with homework, ran to pick up Tyler, took Brady to baseball practice, went to the store, picked up Brady, had dinner, finished up homework, got kids in bed, helped dh with his ipod (hes computer illiterate LOL), started a load of laundry, folded a load of laundry, took a shower, and I need to go to bed so I can do it all again tomorrow!
Hope youre all having a great day!!!

Here is the make and take I came up with for the crop. No one made it but oh well. Tell me what you think...
Saturday we went to Brady's game. Poor kid had to play in the rain...he was wet and cold. Luckily the second game was cancelled. I dont think he could've made it through another game. Jeff and I went birthday shopping afterwards. Cole and Carson's birthdays are on Tuesday and Brady's birthday is on Thursday...turns into a party all week. While we were out shopping, I stopped in to a Michael's so I could see my pub. in the Paper Trends mag. It looked good. I got two pages...one for the picture and one for the directions. Its a bag kinda like the one above, but its snowman soup stuff and there is a paper piecing of a snowman and a tree on the front of it. Can't wait til my copy comes...Over at CMK they posted that they will be mailed this week, so Im excited!
Upload day for HSS is Tuesday and since thats also my twins' birthdays Im trying to get finished up. I hope to be done tomorrow. Im such a procrastinator.
I mailed off my item to Paper Trends and realized later that I didn't include my signature part of the paper we fill out, so I'm guessing I'll need to send a new paper with my signature to release it for publication.
Its late, guess Im going to bed. Hope you all had a great weekend! I'll post my upload Tuesday or Wednesday!

This is the last challenge for September from our guest designer, Dana Miron. The challenge was to make a layout about my high school memories. This is what I came up with. I used some older chatterbox paper I had around and I cut the letters with the GEORGE cricut font (it comes with the cricut...at least the original cricut). High School was a great time for me.
I have been working on my DT stuff for the HSS upload on Oct. 2. I made a layout using Dream Street paper that I really like. I cant wait til I can share it!
I have 3 birthdays next week...my twins on Oct. 2nd and my oldest son on Oct. 4th. I need to do some shopping soon. The oldest should be easy to shop for, but the twins are a bit harder. They want some funny things...like football pads (to use in the backyard). Ill have to see what I can find.
Hope youre having a great day!

This was the second challenge Dana gave us for September. We were supposed to do a layout about our Junior High/Middle School Memories. (Quit laughing at my hair LOL). I found some 8x10 pics of me in 7th and 8th grade and printed them smaller, but my printer isnt really great at pictures and they look even worse after being printed and scanned LOL. Anyway, this is what I came up with. I used my new cricut cartridge, printing press...I love how the letters change in size and thickness...very eclectic. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

I got a couple of challenges done at HSS and thought I would share. Our Guest DT for September is Dana Miron (One of the Designers for Dream Street). She has given us challenges to create layouts about our school memories. This is my first challenge...elementary school. Ive been out of school for a while, so elementary school was a bit of a challenge for me. I loved this Daisy Ds paper though...thought the colors were perfect.

My first thing ever being pubbed should be coming next month...in the Oct/Nov Paper Trends. Then I have one in November Cards, and then two items in Dec/Jan Paper Trends (one of which she emailed me about). I can hardly wait to see them! Anyway, I had to share my excitement over the email. Hope you are all having a great day!

Kids got out early today, started them on homework and dh came home early. Now my youngest has scouts, and my oldest has baseball. I havent gotten anything done today. Blogging is addictive, and I spend way to much time online. Hope youre all having a great day!
This is a journal I made last night. I thought I could write something I loved about my husband each day and then give it to him. Figured its gotta be good for the relationship to look for the good everyday right? Plus who wouldnt love to read a journal full of nice things about themselves?
I used the Love Elsie Betty Collection paper. My favorite Doodlebug Expressions rubons...love that font! and I kandee love market tag...I took the tab off of it. Then I used a sticker from 7 gypsies that says Made with undying passion by:_____________. I debated between that sticker and one that says limited edition __of__.
I notice that my time is still wrong...oh well. I cant figure it out. Thanks for looking!
