Halloween Card or Invite

This is a really quick and easy card for Halloween. I used my cuttlebug and embossed the front with "Haunted House" embossing folder. Then inked the front with black ink and chalked the moon and windows. I was inspired by Susan at can find hers

Halloween Vinyl Lettering Sign

I was having too much fun with my cricut yesterday. I found some shiny orange vinyl at Roberts and I just knew what I wanted to do with it. I made this sign and put it on our front window. I used the Opposites Attract, Cuttin up and Paper Doll cartridges.

Note: If you look close the sun is hitting the "ween" and you can see it sparkle!!

I also cut this skeleton from the Paper Doll cartridge. I used white vinyl and a black sharpie. It is on our front storm door. Cute huh?! It is about 23-24 inches tall.

Football Pep Rally Treat Ideas

This is what I came up with for the pep rally treat tonight. Our team is undefeated and I thought this went well. On the back I have the info for the game time and place. I found a lot of ideas here. I wanted to also get "crush" pop and put CRUSH Bingham!! But, they don't sell crush in smaller individual containers anymore :(...just 2 liter bottles. There are 21 boys on Dallin's, I just stuck with this! Good for the boys too! :)

This is one of the cutest football rally treats I have ever seen, and NO..I did not come up with this. One of the mom's on Dallin's team did. Isn't it awesome. Just click on it to make it larger and you can read what she wrote. Very creative!!

New saying for the wall - Find joy in the journey!

I love this saying. It is taken from a talk from our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson. The minute I heard him say this in General Conference, I knew that I wanted to put the saying up in my home somewhere. Mission Accomplished :)! May each of us find joy in whatever journey we are on!
Note: I used the Stone script and Home accents cartridges for the cricut

Papa's 80th Birthday

We just celebrated Papa's 80th birthday and as part of that celebration we were to create a few pages for a book. These are the pages I did for my family. It was a lot of fun. I haven't done any scrapbooking for some time. I cut out the family using my cricut and the Home accents cartridge. I used the cuttlebug embossing Dots folder on the tag holder and family picture. The cardstock and ribbon are from Stampin' up. I love the saying about grandpa's.It fits our Papa perfectly! It says:
"A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart."
