A Quick Visit

We had the opportunity to see Jeremy's girlfriend, Holly and her family on a recent trip to SoCal. They came to take Holly's brother to D-land for his birthday. I wasn't sure if we would get a chance to visit or not but since we have passes to D-land this year we met them in the park last night for a couple of hours. It was fun to see them again. Of course I took my camera along. I wanted to snap a few photos so I could send them to Jeremy.
Thanks to Jason, we got a great picture of Holly and was pretty dark and difficult for him to see what he was doing but he did a great job!

A Special Layout

I created this layout as a gift for my sister in law, Chris. It's a tribute page to her daughter in law who passed away recently. I haven't seen our nephew in years and I honestly never me his sweet wife but from everything I have been told she was a wonderful lady. I was honored to create this layout for Chris.

Another Layout for the Holiday Weekend

I was inspired by a layout I saw over at SD4U. The title was perfect for our little Riley.I had the perfect paper for it so I decided to run with it. Thanks for looking!

Mother's Day and Valentines

I am such a "Moment" scrapper. Here I managed to combine two great memories. A photo of my son and me walking on the beach on Mother's Day 2008 and scanned copies of the Valentine's that Jeremy sent me this year. I used a smaller version of this photo of Jeremy and me in his Valentine mini album...I thought it was such a sweet photo that I needed to scrap it for me. I had a great time creating it yesterday. I used some yummy Basic Grey bittersweet and a sketch from Pencillines.
Who says you can't use pink on a guy layout!

My Funny Valentine

Jason, Cliff and our little Riley dog gave me this adorable Valentine yesterday morning. It was so cute. On the inside Cliff wrote "No I'm an American Eskimo Mix" cuz that's what Riley is. It was signed by Jase, Cliff and a "glittery paw print" from was just way too cute! It made me smile all day long...I am so blessed to have such wonderful men in my life!

It doesn't get much better than this

Last night while Cliff and I attended our Saturday night session of Stake conference he reached in his notebook and gave me this card. The inside reads: "Are moms like you. Happy Valentine's Day with Love" Jeremy then went on to tell me what a great mom I am and how much he loves and appreciates me. It really doesn't get much better than this!

Valentines for my Guys

I just had to share these cute little mini books I made for Cliff and the boys. I designed everything from cutting the chipboard and patterned paper to selecting the photos and placing the embellishments. I used the cool paper I got from the Making Memories booth at CHA!

Cliff and Jase liked them....Jeremy hasn't seen his yet....I have to get it in the mail to him. Thats what I get for not coming up with the idea sooner. I may just have to change my mind on mini books...they were really fun to put together.

Another CHA layout

Here's a collage that I did with some fun photos from's simple but I wanted the focus to be on the photos.

The Adventures of SUPER SLICE!

I finally had a minute to scrap these fun photos of Linda as her alter ego "Super Slice". I made sure I used the Slice to cut out a few things and I used Making Memories paper...perhaps I should try posting it on their blog. ;-) Thanks Linda for helping make our CHA experience not only "safe" but hilarious as well!

Super Slice and CHA

We had an amazing time at CHA. It was so fun to have some great girl time for a few days. We saw tons of awesome scrappy stuff. We made some cool make and takes, had lots of M&M's, made some wonderful memories all the while laughing ourselves silly!

Making Memories was giving away their portable die cutting machine called the Slice. All you had to do was wear their apron and have your picture taken and maybe you would get choosen. Amy Stayce and I all won!

Linda of course had to be unique and wear her apron backwards. She thinks that's why she didn't win...we just thought it was way to darn funny and spent a lot of time laughing hysterically over it. I decided she looked like she ought to be a super hero with a cape on so we nick named her "Super Slice".... off to save the planet one layout at a time! Here she is getting ready to fly off to her next adventure! Gotta love my sister Super Slice!

Catching up!

I finally have a few minutes to catch up after CHA! I came home (ok so I don't live far from the Anaheim Convention Center but still) and went straight back to work...7 days straight! So I am glad to finally have a day off. I had thought about posting all the cool details of my CHA experience and decided instead to post a link to my sweet friend Amy's blog. She posted a wonderful travel log about our CHA experience and I decided I couldn't tell it any if you want to read about our awesome time at CHA Go here Bilaterally Speaking
I will be posting some fun photos of my own in the days to come so stay tuned!
