Party it up people!!

first - DON'T BE SCARED OF THE PICTURES!! Her face looks sooooooooo washed out in this picture and i couldn't fix it for the life of me - she doesnt look this freaky on the layout IRL. So this is the fun Pary it up line from GCD Studios! I'm tellin ya the B sides are FABULOUS - if you love polka dots - you will LOVE this line - every single pattern has the cutest polka dot pattern on the B side. This is very simple - just wanted the paper to speak for itself! Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out the fabulous Renee next on the hop!

GCD BLog Hoppin........

hey blog hoppers - welcome to my world!!! Obviously today you know we are showcasing the Vintage Boy line. The colors are soooooooooo fun and i am in love with this little space ship - so cute. This picture makes me laugh everytime i see it because Ethan has his shirt on inside out - and i let him wear it that way! It takes me till we get somewhere public to realize he has done this but he does it all the time! We went swimming last week and we wore his swim suit on inside out the entire time - my sister finally brought it my attention. Anyways - hope your enjoying the hop and make sure to keep comin back - there are fabulous giveaways involved!!

Next head over to one of our very talented Krista's blog to be inspired! see you tomorrow!!

And if you are from Utah - click on the link in the side bar under Crop info - or click here if your interested in cropping for a good cause - my little guy in the layout suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and I am putting together a crop to raise my for the CF foundation! Would love you to come!!

Here are my projects with the new Lily Bee Summer releases! I LOVE VINTAGE POPPY - that is the first one i used - the colors are so fun and bright and the new Tulle flowers are so fun.
This is the new Audrey line - very rich blues, reds and yellows - such a great color combo and very bold striking patterns mixed with more subltle tone on tone patterns. This line can be girly or more masculine -very versatile.
Hope you like - i'm SUPER sick right now - so not much to say. The picture on the last layout was taken by my friend Kellie Hales! LOVE IT.
Come back monday for a GCD Blog hop - you can win one of every collection in the new releases.
Also - i'm a new Aunt. My sister had a baby on Thursday - Hudson. Soooo cute - i will share pictures later.
**Is anyone else having problmes moving pictures around in blogger. Once i've uploaded my images i can't seem to move them where i want them like i used too - did something change?? Or is it just me??

So they are finally posting peeks and projects over on the Fancy Pants Blog - your not going to want to miss it because they are doing giveaways with each new line they reveal!

This is Christmas Magic - and it is magic - the colors and textures are AMAZING! HAnds down one of my favorite christmas lines EVAh! They havn't revealed the other one if have a project for but you can see all the lines over on the blog. sooooooooooooo go check it out NoW!
I will be sharing the blog for the crop in the next few days - i had to move the date up to September 12th - stressing me out a little bit - hopefully can get on top of things and start getting people registered - stay tuned!
We went to the Rodeo last night - it was SO fun - the kids loved it. They got a little restless a few times but for the most part they had a ball. I have a few pics i will share later.
Last but not least I met Kristen Young today from Lily Bee Designs - she's a doll - and she brought me the new Lily Bee CHA product - it is AWESOME -so i will be busy playing tonight and tomorrow and will hopefully have some projects to show you the next few days - but got to the Lily Bee Blog and check them out - the Tulle flowers are so darn cute!

I can't believe my 3 year old could not blow out the one little candle on her cupcake (okay it was a big candle) - but still! It was soooooooooooooooo funny - i just had to share the video's with you - i have it in 3 different videos because after i edited out the parts that made it too long - i didn't know how to mesh it all together - but you have to watch them all - it is so funny! It was a great birthday - she was so darn cute - and you can kinda see the barbie cake - but i will still upload pictures - just not tonight because it took me over an hour just to do this!!

Scrapbook HEAVEN!! And a birthday......

so the Scrapbook Heaven thing - i really really really wish i could share pictures with you - but i can't (yet)! So Friday night i met Jodi in town to pick up the New Releases from Fancy Pants (hot off the press - I did some serious paper sniffing - am i the only one who loves the smell of paper??) - People there are 5 new releases!! And they are all TO DIE FOR - sometimes with new releases i struggle with some of them - not always my style - but i'm telling you I LOVE EVERYONE OF THEM. So this weekend i did 3 layouts - totally neglected my kids and just played. I dont' mean to torment you or anything - but........i couldn't help myself.

And today is my baby girls birthday - do you beleive she is 3 today - i can't. I havn't taken any pics yet but i will later and share them tomorrow. We are attempting to make a Princess Barbie cake - the kind that you create the dress with cake - we will see how it turns out - pretty nervous it won't - and i don't have a backup other than Walmart's bakery! So wish me luck!
Here is a just because layout i did a while ago - not sure why i never posted it - but this is cute baylee when she was one. I can't beleive she's so grown up now...........kinda sad knowing she's my last.

So i need everyone's opinion on this - to some of you it might not pertain too or you may not know how big this is in the LDS religion - but i have planned my scrapbook event for September 26th and found out yesterdy - the General Releif Society meeting is going to be the same night. Where i live in Utah - women actually GO to this event. What do i do?? Do i try and change it - or not mess with it and hope people will just watch the TV version the next night on PBS? I hope it doesn't change things too much - i havn't really advertised yet though so it would be a big deal to change if i do it NOW! Let me know what you think?

Well - off to frost the cake and get ready!


P.S. - if your in love with LiLy Bee's last 2 releases French Coutre and 3 little birds - head over to the blog.......Kristen is doing a HUGE giveaway - you get both lines and both rub-ons!!

GCD Studios *CHA Peaks*

no projects just yet but the GCD Blog has up 3 out of 4 of thier new collections. Not sure how the heck to get all of those images on my blog so i will just let you head over there and see all of them at once. Can't wait to get a hold of them.

If you would have seen my scraproom today - you wouldn't have believed that i actually could function in here - i took everything out of cupboards and cabinets and put it in the middle of the floor - de-junked and then upt it all back. Something was holding me back - i think it was too much STUFF!! So i feel much better - still need some better organization skills - but at least i can walk in here now!

Dean went fishing today and tomorrow and do you think i have the energy to do anything - i have the whole night to myself and i'm going to print a few pictures and head to bed!

I can't beleive no pictures or layouts to share tonight - but i do have a friend that is doing a giveaway on her site - she makes the most darling little dresses and blankets and lots of other things and is trying to promote her business so she is giving away $25 towards any thing - go check it out and leave a comment its called Bella Boutique.

Nighty night!

Winner - and a just because layout!

okay - i drew a name this evening - sorry it took a little longer - i had visitors all day today! But the name i drew was JODI - there isn't a blog or link - so if you see this email me at with your addy and i will get your kit out right away!! Thanks for playing along and everyone else too for their comments.

I played along with OLW this week - i havn't for sooooooooooo long but all my assignments this month are using new CHA product and i havn't recieved it yet sooooooooo i've been scrapping just to scrap - so fun. I used the new EArly Bird line from Cosmo that i recieved in last months Studio Calico kit (Soda Fountain). I LOVE IT! The bright colors are so fun and they went perfect with these pictures!!

Here are a few pictures from our trip up to the property over the 4th. We went on a long hike - Baylee didn't make it too far - grandpa had to pick her up in the Terex - and i'm surprised Buddy made it the whole time - he's 12 this year and has a hard time getting around sometimes but he wasn't about to get left behind!Mason trying to start a 'mini' fire with his new contraption that grandma gave him for his safety kit.Ethan being goofy.
every one (even me because i fell in while trying to take a picture - but i sacrificed my body to save the camera - yet again) playing in the creek!Grandpa and baylee in the Terex - we bought this right before we left to Idaho and i love it - i love it that i can strap all three kids in the back with seat belts and take them for a ride!and cute baylee picked a flower for mama.
So hopefully i will be sharing sneaks soon with yummy new product. Fancy Pants has a sneak in the August CK - check it out. 5 new lines - WOW. GCD has 4 and Lily Bee has 2 - so fun!

So the Crop for the Cystic Fibrosis foundation is coming along - I will be setting a blog up for it soon with information but i will spill that the cute Wendy Sue Anderson will be teaching a layout class! How cool is that - i've always love her work and was so excited when she agreed to help me out. i've started recieving a few boxes for donations too..........still need ALOT more though. Better get my tail in gear.

One more thing - go check out my friend Kellie Hales Photography blog - she took our family pictures and has a little sneaky up of them - i recieved the CD today and can't wait to share more - they turned out awesome! Thanks Kellie for putting up with our crazy family.

Pink Paislee Album

Just wanted to share the album that i designed for the PINK PAISLEE class that i taught at the Memory works retreat a few weeks ago. Pink paislee was amazing to work with and thier product is awesome. So................i thought i would do a little giveaway - just leave me a comment on this thread by Monday July 6th and I will draw a name to win the kit to create this album! It comes with all the product, full color Instructions and the Maya Road ALbum.
If you don't win and still want one - they have a few left for sale right here at Memory Works and it shows the other class kits too.

This is the only decent picture i got from the retreat - Madison and Jodi from Fancy Pants, Amber Crowell is the owner of Memory Works and me.
So is anyone getting excited for the CHA madness? I'm getting excited to play with the product. I'm sure in the next few weeks i'm going to busy a busy girl getting projects done - can't wait.

We are pretty un-decided on whether or not we are going camping this weekend - we might just drive up to the property for the day - friday and saturday and come down to sleep - its only an hour away - but it will save a lot of time and trouble. Then we can at least see some of the festivities here in Plain City (not much though) we will probably stick around for the parade and then get out of here.

Baylee is going to be 3 in a few weeks and i can't even stand it. It makes me kinda sad.........she's growing up to fast. This is what i'm getting her for her birthday - she's going to love it - and so will I - it will give her something to do outside. I got it from Sam's Club.

Well - i'm off to bed! Again have a fabulous 4th of July weekend! Hopefull next week i will have my family pictures back and can share - i can't wait to see them!
