What a weekend we had.....

This weekend we took the kids to Moab for two nights. We were fortunate to have all 5 of them with us. Jeremy's girls flew down from Idaho and stayed with us for an entire week. In Moab we stayed in the cutest little KOA Kabin. It had a double bed and a bunk bed. I wish I would have taken a picture of it. Each night the kids took turns sleeping in the back of the suburban too. It was a little bit colder than you would expect for Moab, but we dressed appropriately and it turned out to be great couple of days.

If you are interested in seeing pics of our magnificent hike through the fiery furnace slot canyons in Arches National Park click here. It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. This experience is a must for all adventurous types. We challenged our body in ways you can never imagine. The feeling of empowerment was unbeatable. After finishing such a technical hike and rappel, how could you not feel like you could conquer the world. Our bodies didn't feel like conquering the world the next day, but that won't stop me from doing it again and again and again.

On the drive home Jeremy and I asked all the kids questions about the hiking experience. What was their favorite part? What was the scariest part? It was interesting to hear the different answers. Best of all, when we asked if any of them would do it again, the answer was a resounding YES!!!

Here's What I've been Working On....

Lots of Die Cuts with a View paper on this layout. I used my cricut for the star shapes and the bracket shape background. I also used a cricut cut file for the scalloped blue paper. "Happen" is made with rub-on lettering on grosgrain ribbon and the edges are inked all over the page.

The paper in this layout is from the DCWV Green Stack. I love this stack. Used cricut for the lettering and rub ons for "together" The ribbon is from my stash and the bracket tag I welded using a couple of cuts on cricut.

This paper is also from the Green stack. The tag at the bottom is a road sign from the Going Places cricut cartridge. I got these cute felt flowers for the O'Scrap warehouse sale in Orem. Yeah for warehouse sales. I cut the lettering from Opposites Attract (welded).

This paper is DCWV Stack #6. I love the cute little birdies and lollipop trees. Lettering is rubons and cricut cuts from Alphalicious. I also used a fuzzy thicker in the bottom right hand corner. There is a little bit of stitching on the background, but it's hard to see in this picture

The paper on this page is from the Luxury DCWV stack. I just bought this stack from the DCWV warehouse sale last week(does anyone see a pattern here). I used some paper flowers (can't remember what brand) and bling in the centers. There are also a few rub-ons to embellish. The title is cut from cricut Jasmine cartridge. All the edges are inked throughout.
