New pool and Tattooed Kidoes!!!!!

I know that I have been absent recently but there has been a lot that has been happening around here so scrapping has been set on the back burner along with having the time to blog. I will however be on the blog this week . I am participating in the Grillin blog hop this weekend!! I am working on that project this afternoon.

So we have been having so much fun here at our house and that is what has had my attention lately!!! First of all we got a Pool!!!!! YEY YEY YEY YEY!!!!


So here it is right after Kevin and I and my dad got it up. It wasn’t too hard but you definitely need 3 people.


Kevin Making sure everything is level!!

This is a pool from Sears that is a lot like the ones at Wal-mart. We could not find the size we wanted at wally world so we bought this at Sears. It is a 24x52.


Here I am being silly, but as you can see there are a lot of wrinkles in these pools so you have to get in and as the water starts filling up you walk around and get all the wrinkles out. It really was not that difficult. The water was COLD!!! But it was 90 degrees out so we dealt with the cold water Smile


As you can see the kids just couldn’t wait to get in. With just a couple of inches they started body surfing on the bottom. They had a ball.

My Mom and Dad came over to help and there was a great picture opportunity!!



It was so much fun and now that it is full they can really swim but the water is FREEZING!!!!

The next bit of excitement was the kids were able to get Tattoes!!! yes they are temporary. A friend of ours is extremely talented in drawing and she uses her abilities to minister to kids while drawing really cool temporary tats.


She is trying to have a serious face but the smile is slipping through!!!!


This is what she picked out  as her Tat. Malia loves Keys especially the old antique kind . If they have any type of french flair to them that is it she is hooked!!

Then my little man originally had a Great White Shark but it washed off in the pool so he decided he wanted a snake this time. This was probably because this friend of ours has a python and he just got to touch it!!



He loves it!!

So there you go that is what we have been up to!! I promise to be back soon with a scrap project and don’t forget about the blog hop this weekend!! There will be awesome projects and I am sure there will be many chances to win lots of blog candy!!!

God Bless!!!

If you are just visiting my Blog and want to play along, you can do so by starting at Sylvia's blog ( are the Disney Projects that I made for the hop!!This was a quick and simple card that I made using one of the Minnie cuts on the Mickey and Friends Cart. I also added a border with my Martha Stewart double edge punch. The sentiment came from a one dollar stamp at Michaels. I wanted to share one other project…Here is a Layout that I made using both my Mickey and friends Cart and my MTC software. It was super easy!!!So I would like to offer some blog candy but at this time I just didn’t have anything available. Then I got to thinking and he…

using Silhouette Studio files with Ecal and MTC

Good Evening, I planned on posting this a little earlier but my day got away from me. That doesn't happen to anyone else does it? lol! Anyway I have a quick post today with a video tutorial.

I absolutely LOVE the Silhouette Online Store. It is awesome and the files that are on there are awesome too! Well I no longer have the Cameo because in the my last post you were able to see that I decided to keep the Sizzix Eclips 2. Well I had already subscribed to the silhouette store and had purchased several files. So I knew I needed to figure out a way to use them.

I had actually seen a post on a forum describing what to do. I went ahead and tried it but had to tweak a few things to get mine to work. Here is a video that shows you how to use those files so you don't feel like you wasted your money.

Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!!


Disney Layouts using SVG’s

Good Morning!! I wanted to share some layouts with you today that I made for my Disney Album. These layouts I did not cut from cartridges but from SVG files. They were a lot of fun and I love how they turned out. I am just going to post them and then I have to paint my porch today so I cannot spend to much time in the blogging world the paint is calling my name So here they are I hope they bring inspiration so some of you!!Here is a double page layout I made from svg files. The Lilo and Stitch font I traced from an image on Google then the surf board I traced also from Google images it was a coloring page image.  The flower and leaves were an svg I hadThis next layout is of my son Matthew he was blessed enough at Disney’s Hollywood Studio to be chosen as a Jedi Trainee for the Jedi Training school. He was so excited. We video recorded it and the video is hilarious because when they pick the kids you can cheer for yours to cause attention to be drawn and then they may pick your child. …
