Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge

Hey Diva's! Happy Sunday Monday! So over the weekend I was traveling and also attended the MOST EXCITING Football GAME of my Life (Cowboys vs. Redskins) I was so excited about the game that when I typed up this post I didn't realize that I didn't schedule for it to post on yesterday like I should have so it was just sitting there as a Draft...My Bad!!

I am so happy to be joining the Wonderful Girls over @ Getting Cricky for this week's Simply Sunday Challenge! As you guys know I got picked up for the GC team and I am soo so Happy! For this week's Simply Sunday Challenge we are to Give Thanks! I am Thankful for so many things so it was hard to just pick one project! But the one thing that did stick out in my mind was when I lived in GA we really didn't get to enjoy the Seasons. GA has really one season Summer lol, even though it does get a little chilly you don't get to see the changing colors of the leaves in Fall or the Snow in Winter. So since moving to VA my family has really been able to ENJOY the seasons. I also looked at things in a spiritual aspect of it, even though we loved GA our season there was up and it was time for a change! So that is what my Card represents me be thankful for "Seasons".

The inside sentiment reads as:
"To Everything there is a Season and a Purpose under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3-1
Cart: American Alphabet ( preloaded on E2)
CuttleBug Folder: Polka Dots
Sentiment: K Andrew Designs ( Scripture Sayings)
 Ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa)
Pop Dots
Ribbon: Autumn Inspirations (Print)

Now that you have seen my project Stop by Getting Cricky to see all my DT Sisters AWESOME projects and also come join us in this week's Challenge we would love to have you!

I will be linking to these challenges:

Remember these challenges are bi-weekly so you still have plenty of time to get your project in but don't wait to long because we want to see all your Awesomeness!!

Also don't forget about the Celebration Giveaway I am giving to 1 Favored Winner!! I am giving away some Yummy Goodies to include a K Andrew Design Stamp Set Woo Hoo! I love Kristals stamp sets I mean who doesn't, they are so Versatile and Fun!! To find out more information about the Giveaway go HERE.

Last but definitely not least, on last Friday Crew Members 4 and 5 and I made sum Thanksgiving Turkeys. The little girls aren't in school yet so we hang out and craft together sometimes. I seen a cute little Turkey online that used toilet paper rolls (can't remember what the site was so please forgive me), and  I wanted to try it w/ the girls. I can say that the project worked really well w/ Crew #4 but Crew #5....all I can say is "WHEW!!"

Our Materials
Getting Excited about the Turkeys!!
Crew Member 5 adding her glitter to her Turkeys Body (aka: toilet paper roll)

Crew Member 4 gluing her Turkeys Feet. Do you see # 5 eating googly eyes lol (don't worry I took it from her before she swallowed it)!

All Done!!

And here are the final products!

The girls had a really good time making their Turkey's and I just loved spending time w/ them and creating some memories. The project was alot of fun to do we laughed w/ each other, cried a lilttle ( Crew # 5 of course), and we saved money because we used what we already had and that's always a plus. If you guys have little ones I would suggest doing something like this w/ them. You Guys Be Blessed!!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge # 73 Be Thankful

* For Celebration Giveaway Click Here*

Hey Diva's, Happy Saturday! Today marks the day for a New Challenge over at My Sheri Crafts. This week's challenge is "Be Thankful"  we are asked to make a project/card with a Thank You or Thanksgiving Theme. I am Thankful for so many things; Life, GOD, Family, and all of you guys just to name a few, but I am also Thankful that I got a scrapbook LO done! Yayyyy * This is where you say "It's About Time Letillia" lol I know, I know. Lord knows I am the Queen of putting things off patiently wating, and one of those things has been getting a scrapbook page done.

I really wanted to do one just because I felt bad for not doing one in so long but also because I had bought a kit and I needed to put it to work so I did!!

I saw the 3 Birds "Best of Fall" papercrafting kit on HSN ( 2 of my favorite companies) and I said to self "Let's try that out and see how it works" so I ordered it. When it first came in the mail, I honestly will say that I didn't think I was going to like it and I asked the Hubster, "Why did I buy this?" But something said keep it and I did, it politely sat in the closet for about a month or so and then I decided to use it. Once I started playing around w/ it  I found out that I actually liked it.
The line that is going down the middle is because I actually took 4 cards that came with the set cut them down the middle and used one side of them ( it had another print on the other half). You won't be able to see it once I put my picture on top of it.
This LO took me literally about 15 mins to put together that includes figuring out what pieces I wanted to use, cutting the cards and gluing it down!
3 Birds "Best of Fall" Kit
Adhesive: I-Rock, Xyron
Bling: I-Rock

I now know that I will be ordering some more kits because pretty much all the work is done for me and all I have to do is put it together! And let's be honest I'm a Mother of 5 ( 6 counting the Dog) and time is something unheard of. I need to make things quick fast and in a hurry, once the kiddos grow up then I will have time- Right?

Do any of you Diva's know of any good companies w/ Great Scrapbooking Kits? I would love to try them out, let me know!! Well I've held you long enough, Have a Great Saturday Diva's and don't forget to join us on this challenge @ My Sheri Crafts! I will see you there Be Blessed Guys!

I will be linking to these challenges:

Sunday Inspiration # 1

Hey Diva's! Happy Sunday to you all I hope your Day has been a Blessed one thus far! I would like to start a new segment on my blog called "Sunday Inspiration", Every sunday I will post a project that really Inspired me to make one (something like it) myself and will hopefully  Inspire you to do the same. I think we are all here to be inspired and also to be inspirations so I thought what better day than to do this segment than on Sunday. I hope you guys will enjoy these segments and I would love to hear from you so leave me lots and lots of comments lol. For the very 1st one I want to share w/ you  the wreath that I made for my front door yesterday. Now this wreath has been floating around bloggy world like crazy lol, I first saw it on Cristi's blog over @ scrappin5littlecupcakes which she said she saw it on Laurens Blog @ larenscreative and then just last week my bloggy friend Candace of mypassion4scrappin also made one. When I first saw Cristi's I told myself "I am so making that for my door!" and I did!
Left Side Up Close View
Right Side Up Close View
14" Straw Wreath
2 Skeins of Yarn (your choice of color)
4-5 Sheets of Felt
Pepper Berry Pick
2-Pumpkin Picks
Hot Glue 
Wire Cutter

Now I followed Cristi's Tutorial to the "T" I used mostly the same materials, the only thing I changed to make it a little more personal was that I didn't use the acorns I instead used some pumpkin picks that I already had in my stash. I also did not use the Brown ribbon I had some of this "Fall" ribbon leftover from a wreath I made last yr so I just used that. I love the way it turned out and it goes w/ my yard decor perfectly!! I will definitely be making more of these I already have people asking me to do one for them so that makes me smile!

I will be entering this project into challenges:
Celebrate The Occasion: #37 "Fall" - Must Have a Pumpkin

A little Trick or Treating!

Hey Diva's! Finally Halloween  is over and my mind can rest for a little while before it starts wondering what we are going to be next year! This year we changed our minds about a billion times before Crew member 4 decided for us what we were going to be, PIRATES!! I would have never thought that we would dress up as Pirates but we did and I can say even though things were last minute and we were down to Crew Members  (The Hubby and Crew Member 1 who is a "teen" and is now to "Cool" to go trick or treating but not to "Cool" to raid his sisters candy bags lol) we Rocked it!

This is as good as it gets I couldn't get a good picture of all of them all night!!
This was Crew Member 4's first "Real Halloween", she was to young to remember the first 3 but we had sooo much fun last night (can't you tell by that smile) and she has been talking about it All Day today. ***Memories!!!***
What did you all do last night? Did you go out or just stay in or did you pass out candy, I would love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by Be Blessed Diva's!!
