Cammie's Blog Candy

I totally have to apologize for not posting in the last while! I have tons and tons of projects to share, BUT I just switched my computer to a mac! So I am totally clueless about uploading photos and editing them! I think I am slowly figuring it out though! 
I usually don't join blog candy giveaways, but this one is for such an amazing cause I thought would add it to my page! What a fun idea Cammie has! Check out her blog at: for all the details. (I totally just learned out to insert a "link" in blogspot!)
I thought it would be fun to do a fall card, since it is fall and what better time to be thankful?! So here is my card:

The main stamped image is from this adorable little fall stamp I found at Heartfelt Creations. The cardstock is ruby red and close to cocoa. The ink is black (for the stamped image) and then close to cocoa for the "grateful". I also used SU's large oval punch and misc SU markers. LOL notice how small my watermark is?! I still haven't totally gotten the watermark+mac issues worked out!
Thanks for reading!

Yeah! I have been tagged!!! I am so slow at checking my blog though, so this is almost a month old! I was tagged by Ana at so check out her blog for some really great pictures!
So seven things about me:
1. I have three kids! One boy and two girls! Their birthdays fall on the 19th, 21st and 22nd and each one is in a different season: spring, summer and winter. I told DH I just needed a boy born on the 20th in the fall. He didn't agree though!
2. I graduated from the University of Utah with degrees in Psychology, Sociology and a minor in Criminology and corrections! I love reverse psychology on the kids! Works like a charm!
3. I am turning into a computer geek!!! I am married to a computer geek and he recently talked me into learning HTML, XHTML and CSS. At least now I can use cool terms like tags and syntax.
4. I am such a SU addict! My stamp room is totally pathetic! I think DH wants to cry every time he goes in there!
5. DH and I have been married for 8 years today!
6. I am totally addicted to chocolate and Starbucks! My favorite drink at Starbucks is a white chocolate mocha with raspberry. The people at Starbucks recognize me and even notice when I change my hair style.
7. My favorite job was working at Michael's as a framer.
Phew! It is hard to come up with seven interesting things about me! Now here is who I am tagging:

Painting, Again?!

We finished our last painting project last week! We painted our oldest DD's room with a princess theme, since she is a princess!! I used SU's Mixed Bouqet and paint I purchased at Home Depot.

So I finally took the plunge and painted and stamped DD's room! I have been wanting to stamp on the walls (I stamp on everything else) for a while, but it was a bit intimidating!! It actually turned out to be really easy! The theme of her room is a garden type theme. For the walls I painted a lighter shade of sage shadow. I chose out pale and perfect plum for her coordinating colors. So I took SU cardstock into Home Depot and had them match the color perfectly! How cool is that?! The look on DH's face was priceless when I opened the perfect plum paint can and he saw that deep purple color! He suggested numerous times "how about we just leave the walls green?". Nope! Not a chance! I was ready to stamp! I also made the valance and matching pillows. Which was a feat since I am totally not a seamstress.

Baby Shower

I had such a good time making these little baby shower favors for a good friend! She is having her first girl, so the theme was anything pink!! Out of the sides of the bags I cut out little onesies and ducks! My two favorite baby-ish images. Inside the bags I put peppermint patty sandwhiches and kisses!

Valentine's Day!!

These are some Valentine's I made for DD's class! The purse is actually a little heart!! I was so excited to get the new Yappy Day set to make pink poodles for these!

These are the Valentine's I made for DS's class. One picture is a close up and the other a group shot. He colored in the little mice and addressed them.

These are the teacher Valentine's I made. I made little peppermint patty sandwiches and then filled little tin buckets with them.
