A few freebies

So as you all know I love to digi scrapbook. Well ScrapMatters is having a designer contest and I decided to give it a try. The first week we had to make a mini kit using colors chosen by ScrapMatters. There were well over 100 people who entered in this contest and only 24 were chosen to go onto the second round and guess who one of those 24 were? ME!!! I was so excited and so surprised because there were so many amazing mini kits. In round two we had to make a paper pack. We got to choose the theme and the colors. Luckily this week no one is getting cut we just get to have a little fun and learn some new tricks. Here are is my mini kit and paper pack free for you to enjoy. All of the mini kits and paper pack are free over at ScrapMatters but you have to join first, once you've joined you can see the amazing kits and download as many as you want. I hope you enjoy my little creations!

Give a little-Get a little!

Making handcrafted items is a dying art, but they are so fun to make & get! So, here's a little game to encourage the handcrafting to live & thrive!! The first 5 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a super-duper handmade gift from me.

What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise!

The catch is that you must participate as well-before you leave your comment here, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going. Then come back, let me know you're going to play, and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift! Remember that only the first 5 comments will receive a gift from me, so be quick! This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. It'll be done this year (hopefully sooner than later.)
3. You will have no clue what it is going to be.

C'mon, you know you wanna play!

A friendly visit

Last week was a good week. My good friends Leslie and Mandy came back home to Utah for a visit. I was able to spend a little time with both of them. I love them so much and I miss them dearly!

This is us at Mandy's baby shower. I am so excited for her and her husband. This will be their first baby and I hope that many more are to come :)

Look what I found

On Tuesday when I got out of the shower this is what I found...

Not only did he climb up on the chair all by himself but he also managed to open itunes and play himself a song. Now he's climbing on everything! I understand why Heidi has her chairs tied to the table.

Valentines Day weekend

This year for V-day we celebrated it early. We went to dinner and a movie. Not very exciting but to us it was. We haven't done that since our anniversary. We had dinner at Magleby's Grill and saw Coraline in 3D. Dinner was good the movie was a little weird. We'd never seen a 3D movie before so that part was exciting and cool but the the movie was slow and really weird. I don't know how else to explain it.

Here's us in our cool 3D glasses :)

The next morning we went to the temple for a very special day. My little sister and her hubby were sealed! We were so excited for them! It was a beautiful ceremony and to make things even better Jenny was also sealed to my parents. What a great day!

After Jen & Beau's luncheon we went home packed and headed to sunny St. George. Jared's mom was missing Ethan and Jared had Monday off so we went down for a visit. It was so nice and warm. I didn't want to come back to the snow.
