Yesterday, A friend and I ventured out to the Craft Scrapper in Waxahachie...since there getting so many new things in from CHA right now. I manage to reign myself in and keep my purchases under $100 - while still getting some much needed supplies for starting on Christmas! I think my FAVORITE purchase was my new MAYA ROAD cupcake stamp. I love anything to do with cupcakes and can certainly find tons of uses for this lil baby!

Last night was "Date Night" for Chris and I to celebrate our wedding anniversary (August 15). We dropped the kids at my parents - and headed out to a nice quiet dinner - alone! Before we took the girls, I setup a couple shots and had Katie snap a few pictures of us....since we were actually dressed and both in the same location at the same time (such is the life of someone working nights). I think they came out pretty good...this is my favorite.

Last night I finished this Layout of Ivy. The pictures totally fits her personality. She is an "in-your-face" kind of gal! Fun and outgoing...always acting silly, and saying some of the craziest things! This page also was my entry for the What's the Word? challenge over at Feeling Scrappy. This months word was YOU!

Yesterday I went to an all day crop with friends from 10am to 10pm. It was a nice break from running kids around all day - Chris got to do some dropping off and picking up. I spent my time at the crop doing some different thing, but one was making some Christmas cards. I know, I know - it's AUGUST! It's just never too early to get going. I'm thinking about building up a good amount of pre-made stuff and maybe trying selling on Etsy or a local craft show or venue. Not real sure yet, but can't hurt to build up some "stock". They are a little non-traditional, but I think they turned out cute.

Katie too her camera to the concert and got a few pictures for the scrapbook. She and Chris both thought it was "amazing"! They both told us all about it and how they would even love to go see it again! Thought I'd share a few more pictures.

Chris and Katie headed off to the 1964 tribute concert at the Ball Hall tonight. Katie has never been to any type concert and we felt this was a good one for her 1st experience. She is a total music buff (just like Chris) and appreciates an eclectic variety of genres, British bands being her favorite!

I've been making some fun embellishments using felt recently and patterns from Elsie Flannigan (Love Elsie). Today I completed a couple Birthday cards...one going to a very important young man, serving in Iraq during his 20th birthday. His mom is a fellow 2peas in a bucket gal...and we are celebrating his birthday in 1st class style....sending his homemade cards and care packages (which he has kindly been sharing with his fellow platoon mates).Anyways, the card with the wording on the front is for him - in was placed in his box of goodies this morning and shipped off with love. If you'd be interested in sending him a card, I would gladly share his address with you...just leave me a comment.
