What a party!

I usually don't share a lot of family pictures on my blog but here are a few from Sunday, July 4th.

We had the water slide set up for the kids and my hubby and I filled up a laundry basket full of water balloons. We had the New Castle party keg, home made sangria, lots of food and ice cream.
Here are some of the highlights.

My husband and a family friend enjoying New Castle.

My daughter enjoying a drink.

The biggest kid at the party...wait, that's my hubby. On a side note, he came up to me yesterday to complain the slide had a hole in it.... Hmmmm.... wonder how that could happen?

Here are the kids lined up for a picture.....
Surprise! The adults have water balloons!

The kids rally and get their hands on the water balloons. Funny, all the adults were on the deck and when I told the kids that the deck couldn't get wet they had fun throwing them at each other instead of at us. (Of course the deck got wet when it rained earlier, but they weren't thinking to clearly. They wanted to make sure they got their hands on the balloons before they were gone.)

Thank you to my brother for taking all these pictures (and tons more) and sharing them so quickly.

I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day. Happy Birthday America!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
