Still snow on the ground...

...at Sunnyside Park. I was totally shocked when we drove up and their was snow everywhere. It has been in the 40s and 50s for a couple of weeks, and there was still over a foot of snow in some places. Evan was so wet and muddy by the time we left, but he enjoyed running & jumping & playing outside for a bit.

Happy Tuesday!

making memories & layouts & miniBooks & such

I have so much to share, I am making a list so I remember everything! Ok, so here is goes:

1.) How cool is this? I am really excited to recieve my "prize pack"...the Noteworthy line is my favorite Making Memories line so far!

2.) Happy (belated) Valentine's Day! Mark, Evan, and I had a great day (minus the studying Mark had to do). I woke up to french toast and bacon, and Mark got me an adorable card and speakers for my MP3 player. I was not expecting such a cool gift! I finally got around to making Ali's Vanlentine miniBook Wednesday night, and gave it to Mark:

3.)We had amazing cherry cheesecake for dessert. Yum!

4.)Also at the Making Memories blog, they are asking for designers to submit their pages, using MM products, to be considered for a hosting spot during March. And apperently they are asking for run-on sentences as well, but it's after midnight, so I am excused. I did this layout tonight, and I am linking to a few past layouts as well:

The journinaling reads: Silly, happy you. You are not much of a morning person, so we spend a lot of time in the am relaxing * reading books & watching cartoons & playing cars.

5.) I got my TSV from QVC and had to put the "LOVE" banner together, just in time for V-Day:

Sorry the photo is a little crooked. I was standing on our rocking chair (yes...rocking chair), trying not to kill myself, while taking this photo. I tried taking a pic strait on, but the glare off the DVD case was obnoxious, and I couldn't get the lighting right, and... you get the idea.

6.) Just a quick & cute layout I did of my little boy. Quick, cute, and he was totally busted jumping on the futon. Little bugger.

7.) A few new pics of Evan:

Ok, I think that is finally everything! My mom, dad, and lil' sis are coming to town tomorrow, so I better head to bed. Have a great weekend!

P.S. If you notice a spelling error, I'm so sorry. I do know "blogspot" has a spell check, it just hasn't been working for me for almost a month.

I totally love Ali's Weekend Creative challenge she posted on her blog today. The different colored butterflies are so visual & pleasing to the eye. Mark and I were out running errands tonight, and Michaels was on our list. I picked up the Martha Stewart punch and drop shadow frame she used for her project. 90 mintues later, you get this:

Have a great weekend!

...if you get a chance, check out this blog. She used circles instead of butterflies, and it looks great!!!

Edited: Jodi asked if I got the frame at Michaels. Yes, I did. It was around $20.00. Also, Becky asked how I adhered the butterflies. I used mini pop dots by EK Success.

Snow Day

For the first time in three years, WSU cancelled classes due to snow :-) It was so nice to have Mark home, and we are really excited because WSU anounced school will be closed tomorrow, too. Yippee!!!

We did manage to take Evan out in the snow for a few minutes this afternoon. I was certain we would last about 2 minutes, but he surprised us and enjoyed the snow.

I love four day weekends!
