Christmas lights

My kids were dying to help me put up our Christmas lights this year...they thought it would be so fun to get on the roof.
Here is Brady

This is Cole. He was nervous about getting too close to the edge.

Heres Carson

Tyler wasnt so sure about the roof thing, so he got down pretty quick.

Tyler felt left out so he came back up...but he stayed away from the edge. That is a good thing.

Do you have your lights up?

Service Project

The Young Men in my ward are doing a service project where they go to memeber's houses and do something for them such as washing windows, raking leaves, putting up Christmas lights ,etc. and then the member donates money for their service which will be used to help families for Christmas.
This morning the boys came to my house. This is the group that was here. Also, while they were here the local paper came and took pics.

We had them wash windows...They were really good, even took out screens and washed the window behind the screen. I never get to the upper windows so that was nice too.

They did the inside of the windows too.

After they left my house they moved on to other houses. At this house they were putting up Christmas lights.

One of their leaders told us that they are enjoying the service project so much that they are wanting to keep doing it next week. What a great way to help out families in need.

Baby album pages

I made these layouts as a baby gift for one of my "bosses" at Simply Obsessed. Shauna just had a darling baby boy. This was a surprize for her.
For the Christmas layout I used My Minds Eye paper. Cricut Christmas Cheer (reindeer), Doodlecharms (stars), and Printing Press (lettering) cartridges .

For this layout I used Crate paper. The house and tree paper piecing was made from a pattern by Windows of Time. The lettering was made with Sizzix Doodletag (Home) and Cuttlebug Harmony (Sweet) diecuts.

This layout was made using paper I got as a RAK. I cannot remember the name of the company. The turkey paper piecing is a free pattern from Kaylas Kreations. The lettering is Cricut base camp cartridge. The date stamp is by Catslife Press.

Thanks for stopping by.

Simply Obsessed November Kit layouts

Here are my layouts I made with Simply Obsessed's November kit. I just loved this kit.
The photos taken on my first three layouts are by Julie Hess.

The Limited Edition stamp on this layout is an add on from the April kit at Simply Obsessed and is still available in Past Obsessions.

The black Mini alphabet stickers in this kit are an add on from the July kit and are still available in past obsessions.

This layout was made using the sketch that Ronda created for the newsletter which can be seen here

Thanks for stopping by! Also, thanks to all of you who have left kind words about the passing of my FIL.

Sad day

Update: The funeral will be on Friday

Since I know that several local people read my blog, I just wanted to let you know that Jeff's dad passed away tonight. It was sudden and unexpected. The only thing that makes it a little easier is that he was ready to go. He has been so lonely without Jeff's mom who passed away on Easter 4 1/2 years ago. The funeral will probably be this coming Thursday or Friday. Ill update when I know.

Treasures to Scrap upload...SEI

SEI was the sponsor for Treasures to Scrap this month. I was lucky enough to get their halloween papers...Eerie Alley. They are so much fun to use. They have lots of embossed papers in their new collections. I also got an email today saying that these papers are on sale. Everything I used can be found here at SEI.

I found the pattern for these shoes on Ellen Hutsons blog. Fun huh?

Treasures to Scrap is going through a server change so its harder to get into the site while it switches. If you would like to get into the forums go here and to get into the gallery go here This is a temporary fix until the site gets all transferred to the new server.
Thanks for stopping by!


I hope you all had a safe, fun halloween. We went to a Trunk-or-Treating at our church. When it ended, our kids hung out with their friends. We had the three youngest and several of their friends at our house. Our oldest went to his friends house. Theres lots of candy at my house now...maybe I can convince them to share with me LOL.

Hope youre having a great day!
