Here's a peek

at the page I did for Landon's scrapbook. I love how it turned out. It is kind of busy but I still love it. :)
I just have to get the shower scrapped now. So much to do.

I've also been looking at wipey cases & how to decorate those. I guess its the new rage. We never had those things when my kids were young. It's amazing all the new gadgets they have for making life easier.

I know this is short but I really did'nt plan on coming in at I will be back when I have more to share.

Crazy Hectic

Crazy & Hectic pretty much sums it up around here. lol

This is how we spent lastnight.....

Yes, in labor & delivery. Tarynn has been having pain for a few days. She contacted her OB/GYN & they recommended she go in & be checked. She was already dilated to one.  As us mothers know it can still be a long road to delivery from there. So they checked her out & gave her something to help her sleep.

I have no doubt she wont make it to her March 27th due date. We are secretly hoping she has him on our anniversary March 17th. She is ready to pop now. So it should'nt be to long before we have a baby here. :) Yay!

As for the crafty side of life....I am super excited about a class I'm gonna take in May with Donna Downey. I have followed her for a long time & love her approach to scrapping & crafting. Who would of thought she would show up here in Arkansas. I'm beyond the moon that she is though. This bright canvas & fabric album is the class I'm taking.

I kind of hit a  creative bump with my purse mini album. Trying to get over that so I can finish it up. Our friend's b-day is just around the corner. I have faith I will get it done. I seem to do better under pressure.

I have also started a new album that I'm really excited to do. I cant give much details yet because I dont know whose eyes may wander in here. I will definitely keep you updated on that.

Going back into party planner mode once again. I've decided to throw a huge bash for my hubs & his best friend for their 40th b-days. It wont be until September. Trying to locate venues & dj's right now. It's a little hard when you are new to an area. Any suggestions please email me. Since my hubby is 100% Irish, & we got married on St. Patty's Day, I'm running with the St. Pattys/Green thing. He has always wanted a huge irish shindig, so there ya go. I'm thinking I can get a lot of it after St. Pattys for half the price. Gotta get creative though & come up with some good ideas for food/drinks/decor. Will keep you posted on that endeavor too. :)

Well, I'm off to scrapbook. Will be back with more updates soon. Until next time....Toodles

Here's the latest

Wow it has been hectic around here. I had the cake order for Brice's 15th B-day party & my daughter's Baby Shower. It has been non-stop.

I wanted to share the cake I did for Brice. I also did cupcakes & cookies for her Girls Night Out.

It was very bright & shiny. lol I was afraid it was too crazy but she liked it.

The week before that I hosted Tarynn's "Rock Out" Baby Shower. It came out so cool. It fit her personality to a "T". Down to the very last detail. It truly represented her & her love for music. I am sure she will pass this on to her son. :)

I got the idea off of one my blogs that I read. This woman had thrown her hubby a Rock Star b-day party. I just took her cue & detailed it to Tarynn's personality.

Have you ever had one of those events where EVERYTHING falls into perfect place. This was mine. We had so much fun & everyone seemed to like the less than standard approach to the baby shower. hahaha Here's some of the food we had. We even had *Rockstar* drinks. lol

The only thing that did'nt turn out to my expectations was her cake. It ended up looking a lot like her b-day cake unfortunately. She LOVED it though so thats all that matters. The cupcakes totally rocked. LOL

These were some of the favors we made. I designed the popcorn boxes as a "Thank You" for coming. On the belly of the girl it says "Ready To Pop!" So stinkin cute. The candy bar wrappers we designed too. The little rocker ducks were given away with the candy bars for game prizes along with the chocolate chips, cookie recipe & star cookie cutters. There were gift cards as well.

As for my zebra print purse album, that I mentioned in the previous post. It is closer to being finished than it was, but not totally there yet. I finally got all the pages cut & assembled. I just have to decorate it. I'm making it for one of my hubby's co-workers. She is a hoot & I just love her. I'm also going to make her a cake with a tiara on the top & some bling bling around the bottom. It should be fun!
Well I will be back to share more later....Toodles
