Good morning! Today I dont have a crafty project to share :( just me blabbin' lol
So the hubby and I went on a much needed vacation this past week and just got back yesterday. We did a mini road trip from Orange County, CA up to San Fran. We stopped at some of the most beautiful places. However, the weather was different in almost every city. Experience, experience, experience. 
I cannot remember where this is at right now, I do know its somewhere between Santa Barbara and Pismo Beach :P as you can see, beautiful day. 
Now in San Fran, it wasnt so sunny.... I guess it's okay because last time we were up there, was in the spring and now we got to experience fall weather. :) 
Of course, it wouldn't have been complete without a trip to Hobby Lobby (my first time there!!) I only bought 4 paper stacks - I had no coupons (luckily, they were 40% off) and had to save $$ for Black Friday deals!! :) Anybody going to Michaels? If I remember correctly, paper stacks will be $9.99 each and the atg gun $19.99 PLUS the 30% discount ;)   
I bought these (sorry for the horrible pix, courtesy of my dinosaur blackberry)  

Hopefully I have as much time as supplies to get crafty!! Thanks for reading my ramblings! Have a great day and Happy Thanksgiving in advance :)

21 Goals

Good morning :) My birthday was this past Friday so I made a layout on goals I want to accomplish for this year! [p.s. the pictures are terrible :( I misplaced my camera so I had to take these with my phone and the weather didnt help]
"21" is from the Cuttin' Up cartridge and "goals" from Simply Sweet (goals was cut out with the shadow feature both times)

This cut is from the Hello Kitty cartridge. The face is from Peachy Keen Princess Assortment :)

These two cuts are from My Kitchen, the face also from the Princess Assortment.

This cutie patootie house is from Handy Man !
My goals range from learning new recipes, going back to school, and purchasing our first home. I included a small photo mat for a picture of the hubby and me. The lined paper is from DCWV All About Girls stack, I just trimmed it until I got the look I wanted. I used Fiskars Notebook punch on the side to give it that notebook look hehe I also used Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks all around the page. :) Thanks for looking!

Altered Shoe Box

Good morning! I'm just showing a BEYOND simple idea. I had some punch outs that were always laying around here and there so I thought of buying a little storage box for them. Then I saw an old shoe box I was about to throw away and there it was. Cheap, crafty, and how I wanted it without having to leave home :)
[p.s. sorry for the bad pictures and horrible mess in the background]
 You can definetly add more "umpth" to it :)
