Great tower of chocolate

Samantha came down with something Friday night.. she went to bed feeling feverish.  On Saturday she woke up with a burning fever, an achy head, and a bit of a sore throat.  Poor lil sweetheart.  She wanted to be held a lot yesterday... she laid against me, and helped me comment in the gallery over @ Treasured for their Resolutions Crop. If you go over there, be careful.. their inspiring AND their enablers. *cheeky grin*

I heard that Michael's this week was having a 50% off sale on their Cuttlebugs.  I went online to find their weekly coupon, low and behold I find my favorite kind of coupon... 20% off your entire order... I those! I waited on Doug to get dressed and we ran over to Michael's.  I found the last Cuttlebug there.. and it was on sale!! I bought 4 folders to go with it since they were B1G1! Picked up some Gesso since I've been wanting to play with that, an embossing dymo label maker, and some white cardstock.  Walked out of there spending just $32 for my Cuttlebug.. what a steal!! *happy dancing at the register*

The kids and I played around with it this morning before breakfast... it's so fun to turn the handle and emboss.. so easy!! Why did I wait so long to get one? Here's what we put together with scraps.

  After that Samantha showed signs of hunger.. yay!  I went into the kitchen to make pancakes only to discover we were out of pancake mix, and low on syrup. *sigh*  My lil stinker had her heart set on pancakes, so I looked a recipe up online and made some.  They turned out pretty good for scratch!  To solve the dilemma of not having much syrup.. we decided to have sinful pancakes topped with chocolate syrup, cool whip, and chocolate chips.
♥♥♥ It was love at first bite, just take the bacon off the top first. ;)

As I said previously, there's a big crop over @ Treasured Scrapbooking.  I completed all the challenges over there, and walked away with layouts to put in my album. Here's a couple of them.

I used my cricut w/scal to cut out that cute lil caterpillar!  I believe I got him from Aymee's svg blog...  he cut out perfectly! Thanks for sharing your files girl!
 This one is about what I consider quality time... hanging out with my family playing games or watching movies together.  All the photos stink for some reason.. gotta figure out why.  Oh, and this I love.. figure we can pull it out once a week when we want to have a game night. It will be a symbol to walk away from the computer, put the phone down, and have fun!

This frame has like 6-7 layers of paint on it.. I really enjoyed the process of making it.

Scrapperie has announced it's first ever digital design team too... very excited about that!  I plan to learn more about that process, even though I have dabbled with PSP and PS for the last 10 years or so.  Hope your weekend is great!!
