Blog Update: Part Two {Celebrate}

July 3rd was spent watching the most amazing firework display ever in Idaho Falls.


in my all years spent on this beautiful earth,

I have never seen Fireworks like this before.

Dan and I purchased some little fireworks to set off on July 4th with the kids.

We headed out to my parent’s ranch to set them off.

Sparklers are always a must.

I am absolutely no good at photographing fireworks…

…Something for me to work on by next year:

Firework photos.

My daredevil not-so-little brother, Seth, decided to kamikaze-style-jump

over our fountain fireworks.

NOT a good example for my children.

We had to have “a talk” about safe choices on the way home.

There is funny.

And then there is just. plain. dangerous.

Oh brother!



My friend, Clara stopped by last Friday,

She wanted some help creating a shadow-box layout for her boyfriend, Victor.

Clara’s Layout turned out cute, right?

Here’s a few little details…

I helped Clara make this little tag, I absolutely adore her handwriting:

I made her stick one of my homemade fabric flowers on her layout:

Clara’s sister, Courtney tied these buttons together, such a cute idea:

Here’s a look at the finished product:


In other news…

Today was my 34th Birthday.



When did that happen?

My sweet little Izabelle made this mini cake using her Sculpey Clay:

It’s teeny-tiny.

I love it:

Here’s an scale picture (ignore my weird-looking skin color):

Another cool announcement:

I’m headed to California at the end of the month.

I’ll be teaching a Graphic 45 “Wonderland” class at

Paradise Scrapbook Boutique

I’m so excited!

Speaking of Graphic 45,

Look at their new EMBELLISHMENTS:

Chipboard Buttons and Policy Envelopes.

I can’t wait to play with this new product!

Super fun!


I think I’m caught up!

Hopefully I’ll be back to my normal posting schedule soon.

Thank you for your patients while I’ve had such a busy Summer.

xoxo, Christie
