Snail Mail

Guess what I got in the mail today... that's right my Spring Mat Stack and coordinating brads. DD keeps trying to take the brads saying how pretty they are. LOL Just had to pop on before I hit the hay and say I got a delivery! Thanks Andrea! Pop over to Divine Domesticity and give Andrea a shout out. :D Catch you all on the flip side.

Happy Easter


I was up super late last night... oh wait it was really early this morning ROFL. Anyway I was making bunnies for the kids Easter baskets. I had been searching for stuff for Zoie's birthday when somehow I came across Stamp A Latte and loved her bunny class project so I printed it and created my own. :D I had to figure out the dimensions I wanted for them etc...

I pulled out my Gypsy and played with mostly with my George cartridge. I used the heart off of Doodlecharms (one of my fav's) and then put them together. I did enjoy figuring it out. :) I thought they were pretty cute. I would have made the inside pink bigger for the ears and perhaps the black eye parts but over all the rest of it was pretty cute.

Scott said the kids were cute that they were very proud of themselves for finding mama and daddy's basket not that we hid ours hard ROFL nor did we have much in ours but Scott helped them find their baskets and once they found them they were super excited. Zoie was cute she put her candy in her candy Ziploc and let me know she ate a piece after she ate her breakfast. She showed me her very cute Mollie Monkey Scentsy Buddy, and her really cool book showing her how to create finger print pictures Klutz Fingerprint Fabulous she totally loved both her items. Mama and Daddy did good. Zach got the Roarbert Lion Scentsy Buddy and Klutz Book of Paper Airplane.

We made our colored eggs, then we got ourselves ready to go to Grandma's so I combined two hairdo's I do for Zoie for her hair today. She was wearing a super cute red dress that had a couple lady bugs on it so we put her lady bug earrings in and had her wear her sparkly red shoes. The kids hunted around Grandma's house. We went over to my mom's and had yummy ham, baked beans (my mom's ROCK) and potato salad. Then we rushed back home for Scott to run off to play hockey. It was a nice day, how was yours? I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. HUGS See you soon, working on Zoie's cupcake invites still. :D Check back soon.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

It was an accident but how nice. My Pink Stamper has a design team and I was visiting the birthday ladies blogs and commented on how I thought Andrea of Devine Domesticity's Woody goody bag was cute and somehow I won it. Not the goody bag but her giveaway that I didn't know I was entering {blush} I didn't even realize I was supposed to tell how I enjoy spending my birthday. Typically for my birthday I just enjoy being with family and friends.

This past year I turned the big 4-0 that is right March 12 I turned 40. We spent it as a family unit playing at the water park. Not necessarily how I might have really wanted to spend my 40th but my hubby's heart was in the right place. We had a blast. Although I must admit I had a minor melt down. Now I know you're thinking hello you turned 40 and you had a melt down. LOL I have been having a great deal of issues and in the end wasn't truly able to enjoy that weekend because of my issues. It takes away more than you can imagine. Now I love my husband and enjoy that he made a decision for what we were doing so that in itself was a great thing. :D

Speaking of Robyn she was given an Expression 2 to giveaway by Provo Craft... how AWESOME is that! Be sure to check out Robyn's blog and enter. I posted it on my Facebook page too.

Zoie's Birthday






...is coming up so i am working on an invite for her birthday party. I was perusing the blogisphere {is that a word? well I don't care I like making up fun words anyhow} and found some inspiration from Mickeydee and The Mad Scrapper combined these two cards to come up with my creation. I may dink with the papers and such still not sure exactly but for now I thought I would add this to MPS Blog Hop.

Cricut Cartridges: Sweet Treats
Stamps: My Pink Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions
Paper: various DCWV papers
Ink: Colorbox
Accessories: Pink sheer ribbon (honestly I bought it back in 2002 when doing my wedding and I bought a ton so I'm using it up.) :D

Enjoy!

Smoochies for this awesome scrapabella!
