Card Challenge

I wrote in my previous post that I was working on a card for some challenge thing. Well, I finished and thought I'd share. I got most of the files from my mother-in-law. I think it turned out pretty well for only my second project.

Friday Faves

Again... It's technically Saturday here, but I'm doing it anyways. Tonight I have been working on making a card with my cutter to enter into a challenge thingie. I'm still learning about the cutter so it basically took me all night. And I'm still not done. I'll post pics of it when it's complete (hopefully tomorrow). Anyways... here are my faves from this week!

1. This necklace found at this Etsy Shop.

2. The Cheesecake Factory. Zak and I went for our anniversary and then again a week later with my sister. We got the Ahi Tuna Tempura Roll when Zak and I went and it was soooooo good. I would eat it right now, if I had the chance.

3. Project Runway. I loved Mondo's outfit this week. I would probably wear that.

4. Oreos. Nough said.

5. Making books on and sharing them.

6. My KnK Max. I am learning lots about it and am starting to really get into the whole papercrafting thing - I even joined a forum (which usually isn't my thing, but I can see that it's going to be good for me). I just have to get some pics printed so I can start scrapbooking Zoey's life. So exciting!!!! I'll add photos as pages get made... don't worry.

7. This one is more like an anti-fave... That Top Chef Season 7 is over. I love the show and am sad the season is over, but I don't think this season was the best. I think that last season had the most talent. There were clear standouts from the get go. The first episode, I called who was going to be the final 4. I was routing for Kevin the whole time. He was so chill and seemed like such a nice guy... Zak and I want to hang out with him. This season seemed like most everyone was on the same level. You knew Angelo was going to make it to the top, but I couldn't tell who else would. Anyways... enough of my rant.

Welp, that's all folks. Have a good night!

Will I Make it on Time?

It's Saturday here on the east coast, but I am still calling it Friday Faves because it's still Friday in California :)

Here are my fave things of the week:

1. Doodle Jump - It's a game for the iphone and it's highly addictive. Really. You have to bounce the little guy pictured below onto platforms without falling or hitting bad guys.
2. The fact that I finally feel like the house is getting clean... such a nice feeling!

3. The weather here. So. Beautiful!

4. This pic of Zoey. So fashion forward! And I can't believe how big she's getting. She totally looked at the camera and tilted her head for this pic. Such a ham.

5. Listening to Zoey jabber. I could listen to that sound all day.

6. Chocolate chip cookies (made with really dark chocolate chips) topped with sea salt. Highly addictive and oh so yummy!

7. The below scarf from this Etsy Shop.

Thanks for reading! Have a good weekend!

Ba Ba Ba Bird is the Word

I was at the fabric store the other day and picked up some vinyl in the remnants bin because I was inspired by the tutorial found here. I wanted to make Zoey a headband that wasn't too girly because we aren't into that. I used the directions from the tutorial except I cut a little bird out of the vinyl instead of a flower. I think it turned out super cute!

Hey friends! If I'm a bad blogger all week, at least you can count on a Friday post, right?

1. Fresh, cold pineapple on a hot summer day. I was at the store and a whole pineapple was the same price as a peeled and cored pineapple... Who would opt for the whole pineapple in that situation? Not me! Thanks, Stew Leonard's for peeling my pineapple!
2. This outfit from Anthropology. Went to a new-ish mall with my sister this week that we love/hated. Loved the amazing stores/hated that almost everything was out of our price range. This outfit was the perfect example. I fell in love with it, but the skirt and cardigan alone was more than $200. Sigh.

3. This hat from Gap (at the same mall). Zak thinks it's stupid, I think it's cute.

4. And finally, this little hat from this Etsy shop. I feel a project coming on!

Welp... I'm off to get ready for our 3 day weekend! Don't really have much planned, so maybe I can get some crafting done. Yay!

New Shoes!

I made another pair of shoes... I know what you're thinking "Is that all shes makes?". Well, no it's not. I've just been on this kick. I promise my next project I post won't be shoes. These ones turned out so cute!
