Witchy Fun

I had so much fun tonight going to a Witch Wedding murder mystery with my family tonight.  You had the option of dressing up or not and pretty much my whole family were the only ones dressed up - there were a few other crazies, but not many.  I actually don't go all out myself, but i had fun getting ready this year.  My mom actually won a contest with her costume this year at work!  THis first picture is my mom and I.
 Me, my mom, Grandma, Aunt Tammi, Cousin Nicole, Aunt DeAnne, Aunt Londa
 Me, my dad, and mom, My dad would dress up!
 Karie and her hubby Chris
THe last one is my sister, me and my mom.  We got most of our stuff at Garners Village at the witch festival so we all kinda match.  So much fun to step out of your comfort zone and do whatever.
Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!!  I will leave you with a fun layout i did of my niece on Halloween last year, she was the cutest angel EVER.  I did this for the Lily Bee Blog, used a little something from all three of the new lines!

last weekend was my grandparent's 75th birthday's!!  My grandpa turned 75 on Saturday and my Grandma on Sunday.  We went and visited and had a BBQ - i'm so lucky to still have both of them around and just love them to pieces!!

And i actually did a birthday layout about me.  First one I've ever scrapbooked.  This was last year, and i turned 34.  I did it for the Fancy Pant's blog product spotlight and  I used the It's your day line glitter cuts.The funny thing is, i thought it was the one i like the least (still liked it but liked the others better) and I've used it the most.  The bright colors are so fun!

Today's post is short and sweet, i've got a sunday school lesson to plan - yes i did procrasinate this week!  Dean and i went deer hunting this weekend so we've been gone.  We have a fun Halloween party next weekend so i will be back with pictures and I also get to share projects with the new Hot Chocolate line from Fancy Pants too!  So come back soon!

Witch Festival

I can't believe it has been over 2 weeks since i last posted, the time flies these days.  I have been super busy with the usual, school, kids and trying to stay on top of house work (definitely the bottom of the list :) ).  I did manage to break away this last weekend for a few fun things.  Friday, my sister and her kids, my mom and my crew headed to South Salt Lake to Gardner's Village for the Witch Festival.  Probably wasn't the smartest of choices since it was UEA and everyone's kids were out of school and there were literally thousands of people there.  Not big on huge crowds.  We did manage to have some fun though the day started off on the wrong foot, my sister's little boy Bridger who is 3 and suffers from autism went missing.  We stopped at one point to look at the witch that was in the creek and he must have kept walking, it was only a matter of seconds.  So needless to say for the next half hour we were all panicked and running around trying to find him.  Luckily a really nice lady had found him and kept him safe till we could find them, and good thing for us, there were alot of helpful mom's willing to stop what they were doing to help us.  When they were united it was a tear jerker, Bridge didn't want to let go of his for the rest of time we just browsed a few shops and called it good.  I did get a darling witch costume for Baylee and a few Witch accessories for my witch costume!

for some reason my sis isn't in any of the pics.  That is my cute mom holding Karie's little guy Hudson.

I will share pics of my grandparents 75th birthday party next time.  I want to leave you with a cute project i did for the Fancy Pants blog today!  You can check it out there for detailed instructions on how to make it.  

Also go check out the who made the Fancy Pants Design team!!!  I am so excited to be able to stay on another term, they are such an awesome company to work for and i'm excited to get to know the new girls coming a board and grateful to have worked with the ones who are leaving.

Better get to the homework before i fall behind!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Life is Sweet...........

really it is!  Busy, and sometimes i don't feel like i've accomplished enough because i'm stuck behind this computer studying half the time.  But it is sweet, i have great friends, great family and am so blessed!  I did this layout a few days ago with some of the new Lily Bee goodness.  I used paper and diecuts from Domestic Bliss and then a die cut that i cut up from the Lovely Collection.  This is my cute niece Corrine, they call her Cory, and i just want to squish her!  She's beautiful, and curious, and super duper sassy! click on images if you want to see them larger.

 I used some fun chipboard butterflies that Maya Road send the Lily Bee girls this month as masks and sprayed the Maya mist over them. 

 Used the Lily Bee chipboard circles in the centers of those fabulous Sassafras flowers!

Went to a field trip for Baylee's pre-school the other day.  She had a nature hunt - it was so fun, she was given the color red, and had to find anything she could that was red and then made a collage - she did a great job!  I had fun watching her explore!

Another fun thing - Mason - my 9 year old, was chosen to be a part of the Gifted Pilot program for Box Elder School District.  He was one of 4 fourth graders chosen to participate, i am so PROUD of him.  Dean and I are just wondering where the kid got his brains, couldn't possible have been from either of us!!
