My Girl is 21!

I can't believe it! My girl is 21 years old! I never would have believed that time would go by so fast... We didn't do much for her day, as she had plans with friends, but we did get to see her for a little bit to blow out her candles. I made her a word book with some pictures of birthday's past, as well, and she loved it! :) If you would like a copy of this file, please email me directly at

After we had done with the birthday party, I raced over to the church to help out with our ward Relief Society service project. We had a pajama party (although only 2 of us showed up in pajamas!) and we made pajama pants to be donated to the Sheriff King Home here in Calgary. As it turned out, this was a huge project! We will have to have another night to finish what we started! But here are some pics of everyone working away at pinning, cutting and serging... Love these girls!!
There were those present who said they didn't know what to do - but they came to help anyway, and I loved that about those girls. I've included President Uchdorf's message here, because those wonderful ladies inspired me.

Busy Day Again!

Wow! Got a ton of crafting done today! I do some respite for a little girl on Mondays and she loves to "cut paper". So while she destroyed some of my scraps and extra cuts - I got all of these done!

Cute story to tell too...
Sitting at dinner tonight and Terry looks at his cucumbers and says, "Now I know why they are called cutecumbers! Cause they are cute!"

Gosh did we laugh! Had to help him listen closely to how it is actually pronounced - but I'm not sure that he'll remember. :)

Blog Candy

I just found some blog candy on one of the blogs that I follow. You can check out this awesome giveaway here - and maybe get in on this yourself! :)

I'm pretty new to blog hopping - but I loved Angi's stuff right away! So inspiring! Go check it out! :)

Busy Weekend

I've hardly been home this weekend - but I've been having a blast! I was so happy that I got to head down to the Cardston Temple with my mother yesterday. She and I have never done that - just the two of us. It was such a beautiful day, great driving weather and great conversation! I love ya, Mom! Thanks for the great day!

I got to spend a brief amount of time with my boys - who had apparently had a GREAT "Boys Day with Dad" - before my scrapbook club.

Here's what I made last night...

This was a new one for me - I think she called it "spotlighting". I'm not a huge stamper, but this one was definitely fun! We did make one other project - but I'm saving that one for Father's Day. :)

Off to blog hop and get some more inspiration! And to all my US friends - have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Getting Started

My first post on this blog!

I've seen so many inspirational blogs that I thought I'd give this a whirl myself. I started with my Cricut back in October - but had to upgrade to the Expression a couple months ago... LOVE IT! I'll start by posting a couple of pictures of things I've created lately - and maybe a few things that inspire me too.

Here we go...
