a scrappy post!!

hey here is a new layout i did for my LSS ! i was totally dreading it because i NEVER do *heritage* pages...but, i am quite happy with how it turned out! I did a couple of fun techniques that i'll tell you about!

first i stamped that cute lil' owl stamp on a transparency and heated it up on my stove top to give it a bit of demension then cut it out and glued it to my cute lil' chipboard tree {maya road}. I also covered the tree, trunk and bird with the same K&Co heritage paper then i stitched and added some pretty green bling! totally love it! i drew some lines on the trunk to make it look like faux woodgrain, but i think i should of added more lines...Then on the second page i stapled some lace on then on top of the first staples i stapled again, then removed it and added seed beads and put it back on the page! just a little more texture! I layered some pretty prima flowers and used brads to adhere them to my page. I also used some cute letter stamps from EKSuccess that i got a micheals.
so thats that. hope you like the scrappy post. I think i liked it! i will definetly do more.

half way???

so today we went to the *Nimitz Halfway Party* at boomers. it was VERY hot today! temp in the car read 104 at 2:30pm. wow! but we soldiered on. Jonah fell asleep after church so he stayed home with Nana and Grampa. much better. it would of been misery if we brought him along. nothing for wee ones. So the big boys and i went on our merry way to a fun filled afternoon of miniature golf and arcade games. what fun! I got to ride the *go carts* twice. First with James, then with Colby! totally fun! i had never been to boomers before, or ever driven go carts. so i had a great time. Then we ran into the Weidermans! The boys were so excited to see friends and we all hung out the rest of the day. They fed us pizza, gave us tokens and wrist bands all for $10... and had yummy cake! we did'nt get home until 8:00pm! the boys literally fell into their beds....nice.

OH! yesterday when we got home from the pool, there was a package on our doorstep from our wonderful friends in KOREA! they sent me this fantastic bag from REI, for my birthday! totally LOOOVE it! thanks Days and Ryan! you guys are the best! totally my colors, too! YEAH

that was our day. how was yours?

WOW! is an understatement. i had the greatest time! first of all i got to spend some *quality lovie* time with Jason, which was so needed and absolutely wonderful! we toured sooo much i lost 4 lbs on my trip! ~nice. i was there for 4 days and we did not waste one second! we took 4 tours and they were quite extensive. everything you wanted to see. it was great! the first one was a seafood dinner cruise where we took a ferry {so cool}to a fishing village with a huge fresh fish market! cRaZy!the fish were just swimming in tanks right outside restaurants. then we had a traditional hong kong meal! then it was back to the temple street market. A famous open air market at night! the next day we went on a 14 hour tour that took us to 2 of the 200 islands off the south china sea and surrounding areas. We went to Shenzhin and Macau, which is the Las Vegas of Asia! Jay and i in a cool templethis is a pic of the pollution in the air over the harbor...ick. then a clearer one, of our was an amazing trip! while i was there i celebrated my 32nd birthday! happy birthday to me!

then i was home for two days then flew to Las Vegas for my BFF's 30th birthday!!! it was a CrAAAzY night! what happens in Vegas.....right! We had costumes, hair and makeup and photo shoots...awesome! before you judge the pics, i am waiting on the pics i took with his camera! he got a FANCY one that i played with...amazing. it was at a penthouse sweet at the Mandalay Bay Hotel that had the most incredible veiw of the entire strip! and the food was catered from here. my camera was out of commission, so these are the only ones i got before it died...more later. and, last but not least, the birthday card for Todd. i am pleased!
