Some Disney Highlights

I took 102 pictures over the two days (plus, my mom had a camera and was snapping away too). I deleted blurry ones and got down to 78. Not bad. Here are a couple of highlights.
 Bippity Boppity Boutique for hairstyle and make up!
 Finding Nemo and Meeting Princess Ariel in her Grotto.
Meeting Rapunzel, we had to ask Flynn Rider to leave because Rebecca was scared to go over there until he left :)We had so much fun and I am so worn out. Thanks mom for your help! We miss you!

Gourmet Recipe #18

Did I fool you? Did you think this post was going to be about food? Here is the weekly sketch challenge for Gourmet Rubber Stamps.

I made the card first and then the sketch. My favorite part is that you get a chance to whip out your washi tapes you have and add a strip on!
Stamps are all GRS from the January's Diner Club. Antique Linen Distress ink and MME pp.

My sketch was made using a digital kit by Melissa Turnbridge at ScrapMatters.

February Diner's Club Preview!!!

Hi!! Happy day! My mom is coming into town today, so I'm super excited! Plus, I have these awesome stamps to show you today! Today is the February Diner's Club Preview. For more information about joining the Diner's Club click here.
I wanted to do a CAS card today to show. I love the sentiment and the adorable images to go along with it. I stamped in black and colored in the images. I stamped the rainbow on some white felt and cut out the clouds to give them some texture. I colored in my gold with Candle Glow Smooch Spray so it has this great glitteriness to it. I also splattered a little on the card too. Plus a Crate Paper rub-on to ground it.
Inside the card, I stamped the sentiment and then stamped again on a scratch paper and cut out the side. I used it to mask it to stamp the rainbow coming out of the sentiment. Plus the pot of gold in the corner.
Don't forget to go check out what the other fab DT ladies have made!! Thanks for stopping by!

Kind of Random

Do you know where to get refills for this adhesive? Googling "adhesives" is not a helpful thing and there is no other words on this dispenser. You would think that a company would put there name somewhere so that you could buy more if you like it. I don't know.

Bicycle for Two

Hope your Thursday is going better than mine. I'm ready for this stomach bug thing to stop going around. #2 didn't sleep so well last night resulting in a cranky child and mother. Anyways... I used the Mojo Monday Challenge 221 from 12/26 and a SCS challenge to use beads, but I am quite delayed in posting this card for either challenge. Oh well. The papers are by Scenic Route Metropolis. TFL!

I am going to Organize

One of my resolutions is to get my craft room organized. I decided to take this webinar class to help keep me on track. I have rewards for the different things that I accomplish and I made a benefits and rewards scrapbook page to remind me! The page is 8x8 size using some of those pretty things I need to organize. So some before pictures of my craft room. A little disclaimer (to help me feel better) I switched dressers at the beginning of November and this dresser is maybe only half full. I had a craft fair and then holidays. For Christmas, my SIL gave me a bix box of craft stuff that is on the floor in there. I have people to donate my purged items to and have already added some cute dimensional stickers to my purge box! Week 1 and I'm feeling good (isn't that always the way). Now I just have to make it through 8 more! But at the end I'm having a Pizza Party with Rootbeer Freezes! Yum! Now I just gotta work that plan.

A little Kissing Tag!

Gourmet Rubber Stamps Design Team challenge for January is to make a Valentine's Day Gift Tag. I made the Love tag first. Then I found these chocolates and saw the kisses ones and knew I needed to use the lips. So now there are two :) Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT members to see their creations!

FWF Friends are the Best

My good friend's birthday is today. So I made her this birthday card to house the gift card our other friend picked up. We went out to Panera Bread last night to celebrate. Love the way this pop up gift card holder works. Very fun! This also works for the Unity Challenge for this month about Gift Giving.

Stamps are Unity, papers are MME. TFL!

Old Faithful Geyser in Calistoga. Never new there was one there  until recently. So we took a little family trip and went out there.

There were these cute little babies that had been born a few hours before this picture. They are fainting goats.

In My Freezer

My SIL and I were going to make freezer meals, but both our families were sick and we didn't want to trade sicknesses. So it is all in my freezer...

I made:
~a double batch of Pastor Ryan's Chicken Tikka Masala. I made the recipe up until adding the cream, I did not add the cream and cilantro, but I put the chicken in and then put it my freezer. When I heat it up, I will add the cream and cilantro. Yum!

~ BBQ Chicken - Crock Pot (2 bagged meals)

~ 2 small bags of chicken tenders (6 tenders each) coated in Cheddar & Cracker Chicken

~ Top right you can see the foil container, in it is potatoes and carrots with a butter and olive oil mix and herbs with the Cheddar & Cracker Chicken on to of them.

~ 2 beef fajita packs: skirt steak in a marinade and separately onions and bell peppers with evoo and herbs

~ 2 lbs. potatoes split into 1lb bags each for a honey roasted red potato side

~ 2 lbs. carrots (also split) in a orange-glazed candied carrot side

I did this over 2 days and am super excited about these meals over the upcoming months of tax season!
