Bingham Ball-It's all about the dress

One of the highlights in watching my girls grow up is getting them ready for a dance. Because they are so athletic it's very rare for them to get all dressed up and act girly. Therefore helping them shop for the dress is truly an mother daughter highlight that we both look forward to.

Maybe someday I will sell all the dresses and suddenly be rich. Until then we are enjoying the moment.

First Snow:

The first snow is always so much fun. The ground looks fresh and crisp. Last week I had just finished this layout and awoke the next morning to find a beautiful coat of snow on the ground. Lauren was off track so I quickly woke her up and told her that it had snowed and we need to go take pictures.

I don't think Lauren was quite as excited to take photo's as I was, but once she got outside she was having so much fun I couldn't get her to come in.

Layout and card inspired by other scrappers and stampers. Materials used: Aspen Level 2 paper pack, Stamps-Nov Stamp of the month, Feathery Flakes, Building Block Alphabet. Inks-Outdoor Denim.

The Beauty of Fall:

I love this time of year when we reflect on our blessing and the many things we are grateful for. This past weekend was so beautiful. The weather was perfect and leaves were slowly falling to the ground. Before we started to rake the leaves up we had to take a few minutes and take some photos. This was truly a scrapbook moment. Usually I don't get a chance to get very good fall photos before the weather turns cold and the leaves are covered with snow. Therefore I was not going to miss this moment.

Later in the afternoon we took a little adventure around the point of the mountain to "Thanksgiving Pointe." Lauren had been asking all month to go to the pumpkin fest. However, this weekend was the first time we had a moment to go down. Alyssa was a great sport and said she would come with Lauren and I. We had a great time going through the corn maze, hayride and just doing all the fun activities they had there to do. Once again thank goodness it was great weather. Well, as you can see I was able to get some great photo's this weekend to scrapbook.

Memory Keeper: Makes a perfect gift

Top View:
I made this Memory Keeper for a friend of mine. The top piece is a pocket that holds the tags. It didn't take long at all to make and it was so fun. Also the Memory Keeper will fold flat for easy storage.

Inside View:
You can put just about any gift you can think of in this fun box. My friend loves chocolate so I filled it with "Snickers" You can never go wrong with chocolate. Also it's the perfect fit for a 9x9 album or memory showcase.

Side View:
You can add accessories or anything to the side if you want to embellish the box a little more.

Gifts For A Friend: Treat Box

Front View:

Yes, this little box makes a great gift and works up very fast. I filled it with some chocolate. You can use this box for any occasion by just changing the paper pack and stamps you use on it. This is perfect for teenagers to make cheap fun gifts for there friends. They can add some chocolate or lip gloss and have the perfect gift in a matter of minutes. I do have a pattern that I will try to get posted in the next few days.

Oct Kit of the Month-"Perfect Day"

Lauren loves to play outside in the back yard. She love to play with the dogs as well as jump on the tramp. This layout was perfect for her because she is truly "An Original" and keeps us on our toes keeping up with her.

Rachael loves to read. She buys a book and will read it several times. On our family vacation this summer she bought the next book in the series "Twilight" she almost had it finished by the time we got back home. It's all good because loving to read is a great hobby to have.

Alyssa loves animals. Her dog Simba which was a golden lab of 14 years passed away this Spring. She handled the loss much better than we thought she would. She did remind us all summer that there will never be another Simba. However by the end of summer she just could not handle not having a dog.

She wanted to rescue a dog so went to the animal shelter. She found a chocolate lab that was about one year old and she fell in love with him. So two days later we found ourselved back at the shelter filling out the paperwork to adopt him. She named him Nitro. He has really fit into our family well and loves our beagle-Shilo.
