Good things Utah

sooooooooooo i guess i am going to be doing a segment on Good Things Utah next Tuesday! It all started with trying to get on to promote the Crop for Cystic Fibrosis. It has since turned into a back to school project and then i will mention the crop afterwards. I'm pretty excited (nervous as all get out- but excited). Just want to share a few layouts i did with a few of the new releases from Fancy Pants. The first is the new Dancing Girl line by LiLi - i had a challenge to use the journal notebooks in a creative way - i cut one in half and used a cirlce one for titles. ARen't these pictures of Baylee so funny - she was putting her 'ipstick' on - just like mommy does - its a good thing i caught her when i did!!This is from the Rough and Tough line - I love the little cloud glitter cut. The journaling is a coversation Ethan and I had a few years ago:

Ethan: Mommy - can you help me?

Me: Hold on bud - i'm busy.

Ethan: Right now!

Me: Bud - i only have 2 hands!

Ethan: If you were an Ocotopus you could - because then you would have 8 hands!

Aren't kids so darn funny. I've had this conversation written down forever - i was glad to finally get it down on paper.

Tonight i get to go play with my girlfriends that i don't see very often - do a whole lot of nothing but veg and hang out! I am taking this too die for peanut butter dip and Apples that have fallen from my neighbors tree and he hasn't done a thing with them - single guy who doesn't care - i will have to share a picture of the grass - its really sad. Most of the branches have broken from the wieght of the apples so the ones on the branches don't even grow - and then there are HUNDREDS of them on the ground. Here is the recipe for the dip if you LOVE peanut butter like me - you will LOVE it!

  • 1 8oz cream cheese (i buy the whipped because its easier to stir)
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk

I use a mixer - it makes it creamier - but you don't have too! Last time i made - we were dippin some crazy things - graham crackers, oreos, strawberries - whatever goes i say!

Have a great weekend friends!!
