Make Up you Own Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Make Up your own Holiday Blog hop hosted by Karel J!

Here is the goodness:

Karelj is offering an over-all blog candy for those who are hopping along with us. She thought it would be fun to have some holiday-themed candy for this hop--but, of course, made-up holiday items were hard to come by! She decided to do a whole bunch of *regular* holiday themed stamps for you to enjoy. From Fiskars, there is an assorted holiday set; there's an alphabet from All Night Media, a set of 100 plus clear stamps and a storage case from Family Memories, and 5 sets of clear stamps from various dollar bins in big box stores. How to win them? Follow along the blog trail, leaving a comment on each and every blog. On Monday, Karelj will ask her buddy Randy (random.org) to select a blog number (from the list), a day (Saturday is one, Sunday is two), and a comment number from that blog. Please make sure you have left a reliable way to contact you (email is best, in the safe format of **** at **** dot com ) so you can be notified by her personally. If you don't, she’ll have to select another winner!

My family is all about the GAMES!! So we like to celebrate Game day! So in honor of Game day I created a card with a handsome gamer on it! So many cool project to see, so why are you hanging around here? Keep on hoppin! What would your made up holiday be????

Lot's of Lovin'

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to get together with my wonderful family and celebrate Valentines day! One of the best parts of the night is when all of our kids share Valentines! This year Cade wanted to "make a box of chocolates for everyone" knowing just how helpful he could be I opted to make little 3x3 nugget boxes. That seems like just enough chocolate for the little ones and doubles as an easy tic tac toe board in a pinch :)

Here are 4 of the 5 boxes I made, I forgot to get a picure of my little love bug :(

This box was for the little boys, I used a digi stamp from Pink Cat Studio called Rex ate the Valentines, I'm pretty sure Cade picked this one just because he liked the name! I used paper from October Afternoon, green bakers twine and part of a starbucks cup holder! Love those things!
This box was for the older boys and using a stamp from Tiddlyinks! Can you guess his name??? Yup, You Rock! I had used this one on lunch notes for Cade at the begining of the year and he thought it was "cool enough for the boys :) I used some Recollections paper, but nothing to sparkly for the guys!
This box was for the baby girls. This stamp was actually a Valentines freebie from Dustin Pike. A little paper from October afternoon and some random Valentines's paper ( is it bad if you can't even remember where it came from anymore?) I did have a black red and purple box for my "big" girls but alas no photo. I did use Lily LoveBug from Pink Cat Studio on them though. She is just TOO cute!
And finally the boxes for my sassy big girls! The stamp is from Simply Betty Stamps, and her name is Rio. Paper by let's see can you guess yet?...October Afternoon, and a little bit of lace to lighten it up! I hope you enjoyed these Valentines just as much as I loved making them! The absolute best part was my wonderful hubby even offered to help and wrapped a mojority of the 140 nuggets we needed to use!! LOL it was hilarious to watch him fight my tape roll, but so helpful!

Be Mine!

This is the card I made for the Simply Betty Challenge blog's Challenge numero uno! This week has been extremely hard. But I am so grateful to be able to create a card and take my mind off of things for a while. How could you not love coloring these cuties from Simply Betty Stamps.
