But isn’t it all so pretty!!!!

***ETA*** This was a pre-pay share and it is entirely full and paid up!  Sorry!!*** 


Ok – utilizing all your brains again!

I absolutely love David Cook’s version of Baba O’Riley by The Who. Do any of you know where I can get a copy of that clip? Not a video, like the mp3 version of something?

AI never had it on their site for download – just the video. And theirs expired after the finale.

*** ETA -Found it – THANKS! ***


You can find them all {here}

digi alpha!

This is my all-time favorite digi alpha – and it’s 50% off today so I thought I’d pass that info along! It comes in a shadowed and a non-shadowed version. You can find it {here}!

And here’s a sample using it…..


A Video!

Cara alerted me that there is a video on youtube (of course!) so you can fully appreciate that t-shirt I mentioned {here}.


So dude – I know all you 80’s lovers out there saw the BMX bike movie called Rad.  Seriously – it was awesome.  Lori Loughlin and Bart Conner.  Goood Stuff.  If you haven’t seen it – put it on your netflix or something.  Totally worth your time.

It’s going to take a lot more than skill for Cru Jones to conquer the toughest BMX challenge in the world. It’s going to take a miracle.

Anyway – I love that movie.  Look what I just found {here}!

You know – from when they do the *dance* on their bmx bikes to the song “Send me an Angel”… – good times.  Dude, I think I *need* this shirt!

Dude – y’all the wait is over!!

So you want your NKOTB tickets??? They will be here October 19th – and they are not cheap either! Jenn called to tell me she saw a commercial on TV about it so I had to go look it up right away.

You can see info {here}.

Matthew said part of my birthday present is tickets to see them – I am so excited!

If you want floor seats or something like that you can buy them now {here} – if you don’t mind paying $600-$1000! Um….I think I’ll pass!


Today I am buried in piles and piles of satin ribbon.  Fun times!  But I did have these to share with y’all.  I made these for Adam’s prek teacher for an end of the year gift.  She was Alex’s teacher last year and I’ll miss chatting with her all the time!  I mixed them up so you can read them, but they are the letters in her last name.  I thought she might be able to put them out at home or something.

You can see more on how I make the blocks {here} and these are 2 in blocks.


supplies: 2 in blocks; Fancy Pants Simplicity papers; mod podge; plaid matte clear acrylic sealant; Making Memories Rub on Letters; and sanding blocks.

Hope you are all ready for summer!  Only 5 days of school left down here!  (I know, I cannot believe we go in June!)  And I can guarantee the boys are counting down!


So I really don’t have anything.  I hope Cindy enjoyed the Spurs win – Happy Early Birthday!

We ate in the Power & Light district after graduation today – it was really nice down there.  Much better than when I lived here.  (In Kansas City, Missouri). 

I miss my bed….especially because Adam keeps joining me in the twin I’m sleeping in here.

I read that U2 and No Doubt are supposed to have albums this fall – woohoo!

For all those traveling today – drive safely!  I’m headed back to the rest of my boys…and I”ll leave you with this:


supplies: garden silhouettes by SU; groovy guava, white, and cool caribbean cardstock; guava stitched ribbon; dimensionals; ticket corner punch from SU; liquid pearls; mini pearl stickers from Hobby Lobby; markers and Breathe papers from Corina Nielsen for Prima.

Again – have a safe and fun Memorial Day!  Of course, a huge thank you to the service men and women.  I’ve been a military wife, I’ve survived a year with my husband away in Iraq and I have the utmost respect for those of you who do this time and time again.

Happy Graduation Day, Beth!

Yes, today my baby sister graduates from High School.  I’m sure we’ll have a nice loooong ceremony, lol!  Hopefully Adam won’t be too hard to entertain. 

And here’s the card I made for her. 


 supplies: Small Alpha from JustRite; Medium Times New Roman alpha; confetti cream and vanilla cardstock; chocolate chip ink; classic circle nestabilities; dimensionals; Chatterbox paper; A Muse twinkle stickers; and SU paper piercer.

I used the super cool small alphafrom JustRite.  It comes with tons of letters, numbers and punctuation.  There are also tweezers to put the letters on with.  I used mine with one of the wooden blocks in the Manual Kits.  I got this idea from Sharon Johnson {here}.
