Every Year...

Santa pictures... Are always so much fun, especially when your little boy is petrified of him!!! While I was in Costco the other day Bryson said "Mom, see that big Ho HO... I don't like him!" So being a nice Mom, I decided to skip out on Santa pictures this year. He is almost four and I thought by now he would of out grown the fear of Santa... Although, I must say I kind of like having him be scared of something, then if he's being naughty I can say "Be good or we'll go see Santa Clause!"

What have I been up to....

I have had my scrapbook stuff out everyday this month.... Have I completed a page or two? Nope! But, I have created a lot of fun memories with my kids. My first project of the month were thistle spiders... Yes, these stickery weeds are good for something... We sprayed them black glued on some legs and eyes and we ended up with a fun spider! The scouts loved them!

Next, we made bean bags. They turned out so cute! One sheet of felt cut in half and folded. We ironed on the faces and sewed around them to make a darling pumpkin bean bag. I zipped around them with my sewing machine after so the beans wouldn't fall out...
Whats a bean bag without a beanbag toss game?
Then we made these fun witches and Frankensteins. I am in charge of the craft at the school Halloween party. These turned out so cute and my three year old had a blast making them with me.
And last but not least I made around 75 cupcakes for pack meeting. They turned out really cute and were super yummy!

And that's why I haven't blogged for a bit. I will be working on the Christmas book this week... Hopefully I wont have any more Halloween projects get in the way!

The leaves are just starting to turn all the pretty fall colors. So I decided to take the kids on a walk. They all had so much fun searching for the perfect leaves. When we came home I ironed the leaves between two wash clothes, then let the kids glue them in the little book I made with my Bind-it-all.
I just love the Bind-it-all. It has so many possibilities.
The kids colored the front of the book and loved how their projects turned out.
It was a great fall activity!!!

Baby Cages...

I am so thankful I have a baby cage (also know as a crib). That way when I am pushed to the limits, I have place to put my little Sawyer!!!
Yesterday, when I got out of the shower this is what I found... My cute little Halloween book (that actually has pictures in it) was ripped to shreds. Was I mad? You bet I was, then I took a deep breath, put my naughty little baby in his crib and took a picture!!!

I tried to put the book back together but then discovered it was hopeless... I guess I'll just use one of the other Halloween books I have. It's good thing I've designed quite few of these books!

What I learned from this.... "Never trust Barney to babysit while I'm in the shower!!!"

You can make it...

Have you noticed how expensive greeting cards are getting to be? Why not make your own? They are way cuter and very affordable. If you can't think of an idea come on in to the store we have just what you need, card kits...everything is cut and ready to glue. These kits are so easy and fast. Here are a few ideas:

Another great idea that I got from my cousin, she makes up cards with her scraps right after she's done making a page! Then she has a box of cards ready to go just in case she needs to send one out in a hurry!!!

A Perfect Gift

I made this little 8 x8 book for my little boy's second grade teacher. I printed up a whole bunch of sheets that said "I like second grade because..." and "You are a great teacher because" When I go to the school tomorrow I am going to have each child fill a paper out. Then I will bind them all together in this cute book using my Bind-It-All. I can't wait to give it to her, I think she'll love it!!!

Scrapbooking Makes Me Smile

I was so happy I finally got the chance to scrapbook. I had a blast making this page... The reason it was so fun, is because I went bling crazy!!! Anywhere I could put a rhinestone I did!!! I have to say "It's probably a good thing I have all boys, if I had girls... I would spend a fortune on bling!!!

This page will be available in kit (everything cut and ready to glue with a picture) and yes 'it does come with all the bling.' If you don't live close we will be more than happy to ship this amazing kit to you.

Can't wait to have the chance for some more scrapbooking fun!!!

Have your Cake and Eat it too...

Me and my husband were invited to a barbecue by some friends, they called us up and told us it was a food network party! So, were assigned a chef and we had make one of their recipes. At first I was a little nervous, I never do this and I thought what if it doesn't turn out? Then my cute friend said "Well, everyone is doing it. So they will understand if it doesn't work out"

I was excited when I was assigned Paula Deen, She is actually the only chef I know. Just because I recently watched her on Oprah and loved her. I chose to make her Red Velvet Cake. I couldn't be happier with the way it looked...I haven't tasted it yet, so I will let you know! I am off to the barbecue. She has this website with a lot of other fun recipes.

Back from the Beach

I am back from the beach. My scrapbook life has been on hold for a few weeks. I had great expectations to make 14 cute little travel bags for all the kids. I had the paper picked out and everything! Well, packing for four children and myself had me a little overwhelmed, so instead of the cute travel bag idea, I ended up giving the kids all a sucker! The most important part was I wasn't stressed out at all.

We had a great time playing on the beach! Everyone loved the sun and sand. I can't wait to get all my cute pictures scrapbooked up! I have been up to my knees in laundry for 4 days "I am almost caught up!" Then I will start scrapbooking!!!

"I've come to realise over the years,

that scrapbooks and laundry

are two things that will never be completely caught up!"

A Day At The Beach

Our family will be hitting the beaches of San Diego next week. This is the funnest vacation ever! We will be going with all my extended family. Eight adults and 14 kids. I am going to make little activity bags for all the kids to take on the airplane.
I will post them once they're finished!
This is a picture of my two boys playing at the beach a couple years ago!
There is nothing better that spending time with your family on the beach.

More Messes

Wow, I can't believe it has been one week already. Time goes by so fast. I have been really busy with summer activities, field trips, one broken arm (for my eight year old son), stitches (for my one year old), sports and cleaning up more messes. Hopefully things will slow down a little and I'll be able to post some scrapbooking ideas soon!

The rule of a mess

I was reading Creating Keepsakes today and saw this cute quote about messes. I knew it wouldn't be long before I had a picture to go with it, considering my baby makes a mess every two seconds.
"If making the mess
keeps the kids happy
for longer
than it takes to clean up,
the mess is hereby
deemed acceptable."

You know what they say "don't get mad just take a picture!"

Make Some Memories

It has been so nice and warm outside lately, that I decided to take my kids to the farm.
They had a great time seeing all the animals and running around.
And I had an even better time taking pictures!
Take a break from all your daily duties as a mother and go someplace fun with your kids or grand kids! Be sure to bring your camera so you'll be able to have a lot of fun pictures to scrapbook!

I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world.
