I LOVE this idea!!

For a blog challenge at 2Scrappy Chixs we were to find something in the gallery that inspired us and share it! Well Mary did the CUTEST altered cereal box! and Joni did another! I so am gonna LIFT these ideas! We dont have cereal very often, BUT I do have lots of other boxes, what a GREAT way to recycle, and just in time for the holidays! You always need some boxes, and this is like another gift in itself!!! :)
I will share mine when I finish them!!!

Have a GREAT day! Thanks for stopping by!!!!!

Justins 11th Birthday Party!

The BIG birtday party! :) Was ALOT of fun!!! I still cant believe he will be 11! it doesnt seem possible!!!

So for his party he wanted carrot cake for the birthday cake~ so I made my very first one! It was pretty good~ he was happy and thats what counts!!!
All his friends but 2 were able to join us! He got LOTS of fun things! As I type he is working on a lego set from Tutu! He has 3 or 4 more to go he got, he is gonna be BUSY today!

Just wanted to share some photos I got! (or my friend Deanna got~ our family photo! Thanks Nana!)

So later after the party my mom looked at my machine... STILL no light but it works! HUH! I thought that black switch for the light was also power... so when you click it on for the light it wont sew, BUT if you click it off, it sews, minus the light, I had NO idea! My friend Joni mentioned it should work I was like it doesnt, BUT I was always clicking the switch! SO I am a HAPPY GIRL! I can still stitch~ I will just need to put a flash light by the project! :) My new thing I have learned for the day, the light switch on the sewing machine is NOT on and off also~ it is just a light! YEAH!!!!!

Hope you have a GREAT day! Steve and I are Xmas shoppen ~ Tutu is watching the kiddos! YEAH!! I cant wait!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!

The 2007 Fellas Cake Bake - Cub Scout FUN! :)

Well here are the FELLAS! with their cake for this years Fellas Cake Bake! Justin decided on an iPod... since you have to name your cake.. it became iCake! He has such fun doing this with Steve! He has won 3 awards now out of 5 years doing it! This year he won Judges Choice ~ he was so EXCITED!!

There were some GREAT cakes~ and since no one could decide on one they wanted, other then our cake.. that was the one we won back! Figured it was the last year so WHY not! We are going to use it for 1 of the birthday cakes at his birthday party! How nice is that, he made his own birthday cake! HA HA!!

Dont think I am that mean~ I did make him the carrot cake for the party too~ that is what he wanted! :)

Have a WONDERFUL weekend~ thanks for stopping by!

Layout Share!

Thought I would share a layout I finished up yesterday! I am so BUMMED because I cant finish side 2! My sewing machine decided to STOP working right when I finished my stitching on this side! SIGH! So now my mom is gonna look at it this weekend, I HOPE she can figure out what is wrong! If not I WILL be asking SANTA for a new one! (I have been a good girl~ I hope he listens!!!)

So of course NOW every scrappy vision I have has sewing on it! Go figure! LOL!!

This is from our trip to the pumpkin patch this year!

Have a GREAT rest of the week! Thanks for stopping by!

Our Living Room~ Before and After! :)

Our new living room!!!

Finally we have it almost all together! I thought I would share some photos of it! I still have a few things I want to do yet, but it is almost there! It is ready enough to have a PARTY in! :)

I really love how the whole room came together it is my favorite room at the moment in the house, ok right next to my scrappy room~ BUT this room is CLEAN! AHHH we love to sit in there! :)

The stone that is set in our tables almost matches the stone set in our floor in the entry way.. it wasnt planned but was cool to figure out! :)

Steve thought of the COOL black word family with photos all around it! I had another idea, a mirror or a photo frame with words in it.. I LOVE how this truned out!!

That bowl with the candle in it I have had for 4 years! It was the first piece I ever bought and that was ALL the living room for awhile! I knew I wanted red accents! I am so HAPPY to have it all out now! YEAH!!

See those black shelves under the photo~ those were our hardest thing to find! We either found, 1 in the size we needed or 2 that were way to long! I suggested getting white and painting them... so after 3 weeks of looking we found a set, Steve got them, and PAINTED them! :) We now have 4 other white ones! LOL! I LOVE how it all came together!!!! :)

Hope you had a GREAT weekend!! We are having a dinner party tonite! YEAH!! I need to get ready for that! Thanks for stopping by!!!!

My NEW Purse!

I bought a Memory Purse last week, I KNEW exactly what photos I wanted to put in it!! :) I just love the photos I took last week of the kiddos ~ so I used those! I figure it would make a GREAT fall purse!

For side one I just enlarged the photo of the kiddos! I altered it a bit here I softened the photo, and added a yellowish tint frame around it! I got it printed, added some black paint for the border, the word love, and presto all done! Side 2, I used more photos from the same day, a little stitching, black rub on, flower and some bling..stamp the bottom, and I was DONE! I so love it! Amanda stole it from me last night, and carried it around!
I have VISIONS of Xmas all in my head already for this purse!! :)
and YEAH happy News they want to put it on their webpage! I am so EXCITED! :)
