Sorry for not updating!!!

Hey everyone!!

It has been such a long week.  I have been sick since Sunday  night and I am just finally starting to feel better.  Darn head cold!!!  I just haven't been in the mood to craft much at all.  I am also leaving for my trip to Utah on Monday afternoon.  I'm thinking I'll be able to update there when I get a moment.  I am going to try to film some videos tomorrow and then I can edit them on the plane.  :)  What fun will that be??

Hope you all are having a terrific summer!!  I have some FUN stuff coming up when I get back.  I have been trying out some new product for different companies and I can't wait to share what I have found!!  To be continued on that...........

I will be checking in here every day so don't forget to leave me a comment or two!!!

A Quick Goodie Bag

A friend of mine had a birthday dinner last week and I wanted to give her a pack of cards to use. I just threw them in a large cello bag from Stampin' Up! and made a matching topper. I used Stampin' Up! Rockabilly paper for the top and Hello Kitty Greetings for the cherry.

Bye Bye Karlee!!

This is a super sad post, so either grab your tissues or skip it altogether.

My BFF & scrapbooking buddy, Karlee, is moving 11 hours away from me tomorrow morning!! We both attend church together so today when I was singing goodbye to her daughter in Primary I totally lost it and started bawling in front of all the children! It was pretty sad. I'm just going to miss her little family so much. What will I ever do??

Here are some pics of the two of us over the past two years. I just wanted to dedicate this post to Karlee and thank her for letting me be ME and not having to ever be something I'm not. We are both SO different but yet alike in so many ways.

This pic was taken of us just last Friday night at her DH's Dental School graduation dinner.  We had a fun time that night.  I kept making her laugh.  What I'm good at!

This pic was taken of Karlee and me at the Cricut Swarm last February.  She was my ultimate Swarm buddy!!

Here we are again at a Swarm last August.  We are such cheeseballs!!  

Love you Karlee!!!

Fun Friday!!

*Warning.....  This post contains personal stuff about my daily life.  There is no crafting involved.  :)

I have had such a blast with my friends this past week.  It seems like everyday we have had something fun planned for our kids or just hanging out with the girls.  

Thursday night my friend Karlee hung out with me, since she is moving on Monday, and then our friend Julie came over.  We were trying to get my hot tub to work but the breaker wasn't doing what we wanted it to do.  All 3 of us went out to the garage to try to mess with that breaker when.................. we found a SNAKE by our feet!!!  I have never seen Karlee jump so fast or so high!  She ended up on my garage counter.  My friend Julie didn't think it was a big deal until I told her it was a Copperhead!  Then she kind of freaked, too.  Do you want to know what I did????  I ran and got my camera!!  Are you even surprised?  I won't share the pictures but they were very funny.  Julie saved us all that night!

Yesterday was a very busy day!  5 of us friends met at our local nail shop to get Manicures and Pedicures while chatting with Karlee before her move.  It was a SUPER fun time!!

Last night my husband and I were privileged to attend the graduating dinner with Karlee and her husband since their family couldn't make it. We had a fun time. They are happy to be done with dental school and we are happy for them. I remember my DH's dental school graduation 7 years ago, too. I can't believe it has been that long ago!!
