Seriously, Martha....

Okay- I will get to my title in a moment, but first I want to share my card for this week's sketch at CPS. LOVING the American Crafts Christmas themed paper this year...the kraft colors were a perfect touch. Perfect when you are going for clean and graphic looking design.
"Happy Christmas" Card
Supply List:
Cardstock: Scenic Route
Paper/Sticker/Rub-on: American Crafts
Twill: Rusty Pickle
Rhinestones: Doodlebug Designs
Charm: Michael's brand
Ink: Clearsnap
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Now to my title...so most of you know that I work at a local NBC affiliate. I have a TV at my desk so I can be another pair of eyes, making sure the station stays on air and that correct spots are airing. Well, I normally have the sound turned off and am listening to music. But, today for some reason I kept the volume up. So, we air "Martha", and she had a segment today where she compared toilet paper. Ummm....it is freaking toilet paper. I can totally understand making sure it is soft. That is quite important when it comes to toilet paper. But, she was talking about the designs on the toilet paper...the quilting...and how it would look in a guest bathroom. I can't honestly think of anyone in my life that worries about how the toilet paper looks in their guest bathroom. I know my reality is quite different than that of Martha Stewart...but that segment was ridiculous. I apologize if you watched it and liked it...I mean no offense. But seriously...in the long run, it is just toilet paper.
Okay- getting off my soap box. I have spent entirely too much time thinking about it, and I am going to start losing brain cells if I keep thinking about it.
So- went to Twilight last night. Though it was really good, other than the special effects that were severly lacking a budget. Especially the sparkling body part. It looked more like a combination of sweat, and a Martha Stewart glitter job. That part is so big and amazing in the book, that it was a bit of a letdown in the movie. Not the actors fault though....I thought they did a great job! Here is hoping the special effects get a beefier budget in the upcoming films, especially considering this next movies they have to turn men and teenaged boys into wolves. :)
Well, that is all I have for now!! Hope everyone is having a great week!
Until later,

Hello from the arctic tundra.....

ETA: In honor of going to Twilight tonight...I took this little quiz:
I'm a Alice! I found out through TwilightersAnonymous.com. Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

You are intelligent, outgoing & stylish. A true girly girl, you love shopping & makeovers. Although you are a generous friend, you can be coy, tricky & very persuasive in order to get your way. You are known to zone out occasionally during conversations, but your friends forgive you because you are understanding, supportive & know how to throw one heck of a party!
Hee hee...it all sounds pretty correct other than the outgoing part. I don't know how you can be all of those things and shy at the same time...but that is me! I am only shy until I get to know you though...and then I become pretty outgoing!

Umm- yeah. It is freaking cold here. I know what you must be thinking. "Hello Lea?! You live in the north, and have for the majority of your 28 years of life. You should be used to it by now, so get over it." But seriously...who actually gets over -15 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill factor of -30? It makes me shiver just thinking about it. Do you know what else makes me shiver, but not from the freezing cold? The thought of opening our power bill next month. Yep...that one is going to hurt.

I wanted to repost some layouts that have been previously published. These were in the August 2008 issue of Scrapbook Trends Magazine. Two of my favorite layouts ended up in this magazine...the football layout and the cousin layout. Still love those ones after all this time. Be sure to click on them if you want to see more detail or read the journaling!!





So, did everyone have a good weekend and beginning of the week? Our arctic cold front hit late on Friday night. We went to Drummond on Friday night to watch Casey play basketball, then we stopped in at Swedes to watch the rest of the Griz game. They beat the #1 seed James Madison University...and are headed to the national championship!! The players left today for Chattanooga, TN and us fans couldn't be more proud of them! We haven't been to the national championship since 2004, and we haven't won it since 2001. I think we are due for another flag to fly in Washington Grizzly Stadium. ;) Good luck Griz...we will be glued to ESPN2 on Friday night!!

The freaking arctic front rolled in very late Friday night/early Saturday morning...and the rest of the basketball tournament ended up being canceled. So, we did some Christmas shopping at the mall, and then went to Hooters for lunch. So not my choice, but it was me and 7 men/boys...guess who picked? I couldn't care less about Hooters to be honest...you see much more skin at the lake or on the river in summers...but the food is not wonderful. I guess it doesn't have to be when your waitress is named "princess" and wearing a push-up bra two times too small. :) Yes Casey and Tyler...she did have eyes.

I am now in the middle of a pretty busy week. My mom was here last night. Tonight was my lazy night. Tomorrow night I am going to Twilight with two gals from work. On Thursday night Josh and I are going to some midnight showing of a newer movie...it is a private thing that the movie theater is doing for Best Buy employees and their significant others. Then Friday I have some church outreach stuff to take care of. So- it is a very busy week...if only I didn't have to work. Hee hee!

Well, I better get going for now! Have a happy rest of the night!
Until later,
~Lea

CPS 94 and a new song that I love!

Hi all!! Happy Friday to you...hope your week has been great!! I have one lone project to share with you today...my card for this week's CPS sketch. I have been taking a needed break from crafting the past couple of weeks, so that is why I haven't been posting as much. It has been nice to come home and read, or watch a movie, or just do nothing. I have also gotten most of my Christmas shopping done- just a little bit left. So- I am still here, still kicking...just taking some time for other things I love. :)

Here is my card for this week's sketch at the CPS blog. We are doing Christmas or Birthday themed cards all month long, and there are lots of fabulous cards on the blog! Be sure to check them out!
"Spread Joy" Card
Supply List:Paper/Diecuts/Chipboard: My Mind's Eye
Ribbon: KI Memories
Rhinestones: Glitz Designs (blue) & Westrim Crafts (pink)
Rub-ons: Doodlebug Designs
Scalloped Scissors: Provo Craft
Corner Rounder: Marvy Uchida
So- got any great plans for the weekend? I have a pretty busy weekend it seems. Tonight we head to Drummond, Montana for Casey's first basketball tourney of the season. Their game is at 6pm, and then we will head to the local bar/restaurant in Drummond to watch the rest of the Griz game. Their semifinal play-off game against James Madison starts at 6pm as well...so we will miss a chunk of it. I bet it is going to be pretty darn busy in Drummond...because one of our star Griz players is from the tiny town. His name is Chase Reynolds, and he is our sophomore running back. And he is an amazing football player. It is fun to watch him play, and think about the fact that he comes from the same Montana Class C football program that Casey plays in now. Pretty exciting to think that maybe one day...it will be Casey out on that field in a receiver position. Here is hoping!
Then on Saturday it is back to Drummond for Casey's other game at 2pm. Then church at 6pm. I am going to go to the movie Twilight with a gal from work on either Saturday or Sunday night...so that will be fun! Like I said in my last post...I am a bit late to this Twilight frenzy. I am on book #4 now (fast reader...always have been), and am loving it. It's a very easy read. I know that the two main actors in the movie have been thrust into the spotlight and are constantly followed by screaming fans. Do you ever wonder how that feels? It must be hard. They both seemed a little frazzled by it all in the Today Show interview that I saw with Meredith Viera. I am definitely interested to see what all the frenzy is about when it comes to the two of them...I am thinking they must have a pretty amazing on-screen chemistry.
I picked up the soundtrack for Twilight because I had heard that it was really good. I have been listening to it all week long, and it is pretty good. There are a few songs that I have to skip because they get on my nerves. But there is one song that I could listen to over and over. When I finally looked at the back of the CD to see who sings it...lo and behold it is Robert Pattinson. So he can act and sing...pretty talented kid. Here is a youtube video of it...you might want to google the lyrics because they aren't super easy to understand. Hope you like it...but if not, that is okay too. Everyone has different taste in music!





Until later,
~Lea

Perfect Football Weather!!

Oh man- yesterday was just PERFECT football weather in Montana. We (me, Josh, my dad, Casey, and two of his friends) went to the quarterfinal playoff game yesterday afternoon, and it was awesome! An awesome game with cool and crisp weather, but just warm enough that we didn't have to have on our heavy coats. The Griz avenged their only loss of the season and beat Weber State 24-13...advancing them to the semifinals against James Madison next week in Virginia. James Madison is the #1 seed...so it is going to be a hard game! But, with how young the Griz are this year, especially our defense...I don't think anyone even expected this much from the team this year! We will be watching ESPN this weekend, and are hoping for a win!! GO GRIZ!!! Here are a couple photos from the game...the first one is one of the pre-game band formations/songs, and the second one is me, Josh and Casey.

I do have a few cards to share. I have had these done for awhile, but never gotten around to sharing them! First up is my card for this past week's sketch at CPS, where we were sponsored by My Favorite Things stamps.

Well, that is about it for me! I am going to go get cleaned up for the day, and then just veg out. I might read a bit (I am totally late to the Twilight frenzy...but I am really enjoying the story. I am halfway through book #2), or make some cards. Not really sure what I feel like doing yet. When Josh gets home from work, we are going to go to the next showing of the new James Bond movie...so that should be fun! I am not the biggest fan of going to the movie theater because I freeze no matter what time of year it is, and I am always uncomfortable in the chairs. But, some movies you just have to see in the theater, and this is one of them! So, I will go with a smile on my face, enjoy the movie...and just move around a lot in my seat. Oh, and wear LOTS of layers. :)

Have a great Sunday!

Tap...Tap...Tap....Does anyone still read this blog?

Well, I have certainly been neglectful of my blog as of late. So- I wouldn't be surprised if most have jumped ship from reading it...hee hee! Sorry- life has been busy, and I haven't really had much that I can share project wise. I think I am past this spot of creating for assignments, and now have a few things I can share!! I do hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Ours was nice and relaxing....I didn't even take any photos! And I am okay with that...we don't really do anything fancy anyways! Now, on to some cards!

Until later,

Well, I have a few things to share this fine Saturday! First up are my cards for this week's sketches at the 2 Sketches 4 U blog. Lots of great cards this week by the new design team...be sure to check it out! First up is the sketch by Laura-

In my last post I also said I had a Tinkerbell project for Provo Craft to finish for November as well. Basically, I had to paint the frame with blue paint, and glitter paint. The frame looks so neat in real life...this would be perfect for any little girl's Tinkerbell themed room. I used the new Tinkerbell cartridge and my Cricut Expression to cut out the cute Tink cut, and then printed out the quote. The word "fairies" has glitter smudged on it to look like fairy dust. This cartridge has a few of the other fairies from the new Tinkerbell movie that Disney has released, so you could do similar frames for Fawn, Rosetta, Iridessa, and Silvermist. Lots of possibilities for the Tinkerbell lover with this cartridge!
Now I am going to go watch some football with my hubby! Big rivalry game today, the Griz vs. the Bobcats. Go Griz....beat those kitties into submission! Well, the game is on in 15 minutes!

And we are also pulling for the Superior Bobcats (not the Montana State Bobcats) to pull a Class C championship win over Wibaux today!! They are the Western C team that made it all the way through...and we have been pulling for them since they made it into the playoffs. They've got a great coach, a bunch of great kids who are really awesome at football! This is your day boys....go get em!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Saturday so far!

November Provo Craft & CPS 91

Yikes- long time no post!! Life has just been busy like normal, and I haven't had a whole lot to share until today! In my last post, we were in Sheridan, and I was hanging out with my mom and waiting to see if Josh got an elk. Alas- the elk seemed to be in hiding this time around and he didn't get one. But, he did get some gorgeous landscape photographs! Those will be fun to scrapbook on his "hunting" page for this year!

Now onto some projects! This is my card for sketch 91 at the CPS blog this week. We were sponsored by Kandi Corp. again, and some of us used stamps, while others used the hot fix applicator and hot fix crystals or brass adornments. I ended up with this cute pumpkin stamp and sentiment!
"Frosted Pumpkins" Card
Supply List:
Stamps: Kandi Corp.
Cardstock: BazzillPaper: Basic Grey
Diecuts: MAMBI (glittered leaves)
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression w/Storybook Font (scalloped circle)
Rhinestones: Glitz Designs
Ink: Staz-on & Clearsnap
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Misc: ribbon, colored pencils
Next up, I have a couple of my November projects for Provo Craft to show. My first assignment was to use the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge. This is such a great cartridge... full of amazing cuts! I cut the scalloped rectange that is on the card from this cartridge, along with the "me & you" cut, and the "best of friends" cut. I think I am going to do something similar for my co-workers for Christmas...just with a more Christmasy theme!
"Best of Friends" Gift Set
Supply List:
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression
Cardstock: Bazzill
Paper: Pink Paislee & October Afternoon
Ribbon: American Crafts & SEI
Rhinestones: Glitz Designs
Ink: Clearsnap
Other: buttons, twine
**Next couple of photos are just individual shots of each project**
My next assignment was to use the Cricut Markers on a project. The main purpose of the Cricut markers is to draw an outline of a cut, and then cut it out, so it basically has a border. I decided to play around with them a little bit, and actually draw a part of the title directly on the layout. After a few tries on a peice of scrap cardstock....I found the right place to start the marker. It felt a little stark white, so I decided to use the markers to outline and cut a few of the letters from striped paper to add some color to the title. I think it turned out pretty darn cute! (Not to mention...it is a pretty cute little girl too!)

"Cute As A Cupcake" Layout
Supply List:
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression (Street Signs & Celebrations cartridges)
Cardstock: Bazzill
Paper: KI Memories & American Crafts
Stickers: Making Memories
Rhinestones: Glitz Designs & Westrim Crafts
Font: Century Gothic
I have one more Provo Craft project to share with you this week, it just isn't quite finished. To give you a little hint...I had to use the new Tinkerbell cartridge for my project...so it is pretty cute!
Hope everyone has had a wonderful week so far! Is everyone getting ready for Thanksgiving....isn't it crazy how quickly time flies these days?? I seriously can't believe it!
Happy Thursday,
~Lea

2S4U coming to you from Sheridan....

I finally had a chance to use the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 U blog this week! While my hubby was out hunting (unfortunately, they didn't get anything), I had the chance to make my card for the week! I brought a few things with me, and used some of my mom's tools.

My mom and I went to lunch together yesterday, and then stopped for latte's and ordered some pizzas for dinner at their local bakery. (The pizzas were SO good!!) Then we just hung out at home waiting for the guys to get home. My poor DH...he was exhausted from the long trek along a mountain ridge. He got some really pretty photos...they were at a really high elevation. But alas...they didn't even see an elk. They went out today to "drive hunt", and see if they came across any elk in some other areas. So, we are once again, hanging out at home, waiting to see if they get anything!

That is about it for me. I had some cards picked up for the April issue of Cards Magazine on Friday...so that is always fun! Well, time to go for now!

Have a happy Saturday!

Finally! One last football post....

So, did you wonder if I would ever do my last football update of the season? FINALLY, I have had a chance to go through the photos from that last game, pick out my favorites, and figure out what to write. I was unable to make it to this game because of my job, and I can say wholeheartedly that I wish more than anything that I could have been there. First off, it ended up being the last game of the season. But even more than that, Josh said it was the best they had looked since that first game of the season, and their opponents were a team/school/town full of class. Thank you to Belt for being such wonderful hosts to our boys and fans!

The game was on a Thursday night, and set to start at 7:30pm. But, the coaches soon found out that the referees for the game had been scheduled for Friday night, and not Thursday night. So, there just happened to be some men in the crowd who were trained referees (I think...the story goes something like that anyways), and so they threw on striped shirts over top of their plain clothes and used some yellow towels from the home team as their penalty flags. You will see a great shot of this in the photos! Josh said it was one of the BEST reffed games he watched all season long, even after the refs that were called in got there.

The Panthers won the game 44-15. Tanner, Casey, Levi, and Mike all scored touchdowns. Mike, Tanner, and Tucker all caught 2-point conversions. I am just so happy that Tanner ended up being able to play his last game of high school football. It really is a shame that they didn't make it to the playoffs. It ended up being a 3-way tie, and based on a points system that is used...Charlo ended up the 4th seed in the playoffs. I don't understand that, considering we beat Charlo, and they didn't beat anyone who beat us. But- whatever the other factors were decided the fate of the Sheridan Panthers...and that is okay. We are all so proud of these boys no matter what. They had to deal with a plethora of injuries this season, and it was just crippling for the team.

Now, on to my favorite photos. Josh did a great job photographing the game....I am very happy that he was able to attend, so we didn't miss out on any photos this season!! This photo just stood out to me right away...it blurred in all the right places, and stayed in focus in the other right places. Love it!
This is Casey totally laying a guy out so he could score that touchdown. Pretty sweet!
Cool shot of Casey taking the snap, and the next one you will see the ref and his penalty towel. Hee hee...it is a really cool shot!

A great break away by Levi that ended up in a long touchdown run! Awesome!

Looks like Casey would be going down in this shot.....
....but wait! Nope! He broke through and ran for more yards!
Love this shot of Casey. I don't know if he is calling a play or what...but I think it is just cool!
Nice run shot of Mike.
I think this is the ONLY shot we have with the ref doing the touchdown signal!! WTG Josh for getting that in! Touchdown by Tanner!
The Panthers singing their last football victory song of the season. WTG Panthers....we are all so proud of you!
So, that ends my football posts for this year. It was quite a season, and I want to thank each and every person who took this journey with me. Whether you read my blog regularly, were at all the games with me, or just happened to come upon my football posts at one point or another...I hope you enjoyed the photos and my not so technical commentary. Next up...basketball season! Hee hee! (We don't make it to nearly as much basketball because they play much further away...but we get to as much as we can.)

And on another note...we are EXTREMELY proud of Casey for making the honor roll! That is a big deal to us Case, and we gave you a big WHOOT WHOOT when dad called the other day. WTG kid- SO proud of you! (Okay- I will stop now. This is just a big deal to us!)

Hanging up my football reporter hat until next season,
~Lea
