Such a silly girl!!!
Tuesday, we went to the water park. Fun in the Sun!! Wednesday we went out to dinner and some craft shopping. Good family fun!! Thursday we went to see the movie "Journey to the Center of the Earth" Awesome movie fun!!! I was actually dreading going, cause I just figured it was another one of those kid movies like "Spy Kids" We did not get to see it in 3D, which for me is great, cause I really do not like 3D. I hate things flying at me. DD was a little disappointed though. Once the movie started, it was good from start to finish and it really did not matter that it was not 3D. She totally love it and so did DH and I. It should have gotten better ratings than a C. I would defiantely go see it at the theater. The big screen made it all the more exciting to watch.
So what else have I done lately. Well lots actually. I took a class with my Stamp group and we made this awesome book, which I cannot wait to share with you. I will show pictures of it when I get it completed. You will love it!!!
I have made several crafts for the kiddos for this fall. Its been a challenge to find things easy enough to get done in a hour class time. I finally gave up the search and decided that it may just have to take us 2 class times to complete a project. If we get it done in 1 class, than awesome. If not, than we will get it done the next week. I am not going to spend my summer stressing over these projects. I want them to be good projects and so we will just see how it goes.
One is a Starbook Its not quite finished, because I have not figured out yet how I want them to decorate the inside. With a friends help, I am thinking maybe Christmas foam decorations. Either that or stickers. Its very cute though and I think they will enjoy making it. I found the tutorial at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=197384.0
This is a great website for craft ideas. I have found lots of cool things on this site. One of those being a tutorial on now to make bows from magazine pages. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=247280.0
The second is a picture cube. Oh how fun this was. I really need to make a second one cause I made some boo boo's on this one. Probably not any you will notice from the picture, but very noticeable up close. I made this one for myself. Pictures of my friends on my birthday. That would be the best day ever and one I never want to forget!!! So what perfect way to always remember. I got this pattern off of the HGTV website http://www.hgtv.com/crafting/fun-folded-photo-cube/index.html There is also a video you can watch which helped me a lot. http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/video_guide/ if this link does not take you to the video, then just do a search for photo cube. There is a part 1 and 2 to this video. So I do plan to make more of these. They are just too fun and too cute. The stamp set is one that I purchased at the Stamp Convention. I totally love this little stamp set. Was perfect for the cube.
Next is the CD holder. This I made for a friend. I wanted to use another one of my new stamps I got at Convention and this seemed like the perfect thing to use it on. I will defiantly have to make another that will be a little more kid friendly for the kids. Again this was a fun project and very easy. I found this tutorial at Dawn's Stampin Studio. She has the most awesome tutorials on video. I think I said that before, but it does not hurt to say it again. http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/
This is my second Carousel Purse book. I just love making these. I had to make myself one. I really love how this one turned out. Each one is so different depending on the paper you use. I used a Velcro closure on this purse. That was really better than the snaps I used last time.
