To the Beach, the beach I love . . . !!

On Monday, September 5, I went with Ron, Nancy, & family; Alan, Kailey, & family; Ben, Joe, & David; to the beach - Seaside & Longbeach with a few other stops:)  It was tons of fun!!  I wanted to share some of the pictures with you!! 

The hanging baskets were soooo beautiful!!

In Seaside, some of the kids did bumper cars, and we went to the Candy Man for saltwater taffy, and some of us got Tillamook Icecream at the Candy Man ice cream shop there - nummy nummy (you guys know the place where they say to every single person . . . "and an extra scoop for you because you're special" . . . yeah, that place).  Yeah, and I was a big moggo (yeah - that might not really be a word, but ya know - huge, big . . ) pig on the saltwater taffy because that's kinda addicting . . .  
On the way to Longbeach & at Longbeach
I love my bff cousin, Pamela!  The sun shining on the water was so pretty:)
So Pamela, Melodie, & I walked down to the beach at Longbeach because we actually wanted to go to the beach . . . Pamela & I jumped the waves and got soaked and had the time of our lives, while Melodie was awesome and took pics for us (thanks, Mel!!).  And then everyone thought we were crazy for being in the water because it was so cold (well maybe not everyone, but Ron & Nancy anyways). . . so I said I get to go to the beach once a year (literally) and when I do I'm gonna have fun and I don't care if I get wet and cold:)  Then everyone else came down to the beach, too, but not very many others got as soaked as we did . . . 

So thanks again Ron & Nancy for bringing me . . .

And school started you guys and I've hardly blogged since ..  . . .poo-ey on me, right!!  :(

Hope you're all having a good life!!  Good day! :)

My Memories Suite Giveaway

You all ready for another giveaway?!!!?  When I was contacted by My Memories Suite, I was surprised & happy - free software for both me & for one of you - and for those of you who don't win . . . coupons to make it a better deal to buy it!!  A great deal for all involved, right?!

With My Memories Suite, you can do so many fun things.  My first thought was that since I do like traditional scrapbooking, that I didn't know if I would like this . . .but then I found something out!!  My Memories Suite is not just about digital scrapbook pages - you can make so much with it - greeting cards, calendars, collages, announcements (like baby), wall hangings, and so much more!

With this software I have made so much fun stuff . . . let me share it with you!!

The very first thing I made - not for real use, but it showed me that I could make some awesome invites on My Memories Suite!

This is a scrapbook page thing I did of my bff & cousin Pamela & me - we braided our hair together one night - it's crazy how our hair is like the exact same color!!

Someone wanted a picture of me, so I did the lace & writing on My Memories Suite - I thought it made it look cool:)

Another thing you can do - using templates drag & drop pictures to make cool collages & you can change the background to whatever color/texture/paper you want:)  (This is my darling little cousin Kenzey & I miss her!)

Another collage - cousins - my little bro Walker (red shirt) and cousin Aidan (blue shirt).  Both such cuties!!

I made a baby announcement for fun - maybe someday I'll be able to create one for somebody - I thought it turned out really cute!!

I made this wall hanging printable thing - the idea came from here.

Okay - now here is one fun part.  If you buy the My Memories Suite software using the following code, you get $10 off the scrapbooking software and $10 for the downloads.  This is the code: STMMMS73506

I encourage you to share this code with anyone who may be interested - Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, etc.

And now for the giveaway!!

One of you lovely people will recieve the My Memories Suite software for FREE!!

And all you have to do is go over the the My Memories website & come back leaving a comment that tells me what your favorite Digital Scrapbook Kit is!!

For extra entries, follow the My Memories blog or on facebook and come back and leave a comment telling me you did.

It's that simple & easy to get this awesome software!

And everyone who doesn't win - there's the code that you can use always & forever!


The giveaway will end on 28th of September.

The 8-Minute Skirt & the Mini-Model Photoshoot

I had this tank top that I had cut the bottom off to make Bronwyn a skirt or dress a while ago.  Today, I saw it and decided to make her a skirt; a very quick & easy skirt: hence, the 8-Minute Skirt!!
 {I don't know how long it really took - but probably between 5 & 10 minutes.}

{this was the tank top it came from - I cut it below where the tie is}

I think the photo's turned out darling . . .

This skirt has a simple elastic waist on the outside (no casing).  It was super easy to make - just stetched elastic as I sewed and then flipped elastic and ironed down.  I love the stripes - such a simple & cute skirt!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

p.s. I have another article of clothing to blog about soon . . . something for myself - Yay!!
