Happy Monday!

Posted by emileehathaway on July 28, 2008

Sorry no new cards today … but I do have some fun pictures of my walls!  My Walls?  Yep, Stampin’ Up has a new product line called Decor Elements and I couldn’t wait until I put it up on my walls!  I have a cricut and have wanted to cut vinyl and put it on my walls for some time now, but SU has made it even easier!!  It only took about 15 minutes to attach this to my walls and I really like the way it turned out!

Summer time Fun

Posted by emileehathaway on July 22, 2008

I am sure you all cannot wait until August first when the new catalog comes out and I’ll find another set to obsess about 🙂

I wanted to make a fun summery card and this is what I came up with.  It was a sketch challenge on SCS and for the life of me I cannot find what number it was!  Sorry about that!

I know I have been MIA for the last week, but it was my birthday and I was having to much fun playing in the pool with Kyler! 🙂  This weekend is a state holiday for Utah, and my family is going camping this weekend so I hope to get one more post in before I leave, but if not well see you next week!  Hope everyone has a super fun weekend.

Stamps: So Very, Tart and Tangy
Paper:  Summer Picnic paper, Real Red, WW, Pumpkin Pie

TLC177 … Got Grid?

Posted by emileehathaway on July 15, 2008


Here is my go at TLC177.   I love this technique!  It’s super fun and just about anyone can do it.  You do not need any special tools, just your bone scorer and your paper trimmer (or if you have a scor-pal that works best!)

I sat down to do this challenge and had my fresh cut notes staring me in the face so I knew I needed to use them!  I love this color combo too!

What do you think?

Stamps:  Fresh Cut Notes
Paper:  Choc Chip, So Saffron, Bashful Blue DP

Thoughts about the treadmill

Posted by emileehathaway on July 8, 2008

I was just over on Dawn’sblog and was laughing so hard I thought I was going to fall off the chair!  So, why not add to the laughter and share my super funny story on the treadmill.  I don’t usually like to self deprecate, but this is pretty funny!

About 4 years ago I was really into running.  I know, me run?  That is funny, but it’s true.  Three times a week I would go the gym and run about 5 miles.  While I would run I would watch TV, usually baseball when the playoffs were on or whatever sitcom was on.  This particular day King of the Hill was on and it was the episode when Hank wanted Bobby to take a self defense class over at the Y, but the only class the Bobby could get into was a womens self defense class.   The instructor has the class pretend that someone is stealing their purse and they are supposed to yell “That’s MY purse!” and then kick the perpetrator in the area you are never supposed to kick a man!  So, when Bobby get’s home Hank wants to see what he has learned so Bobby proceeds to show him.  Ok back to the treadmill … So I am running along and I am totally fine until Bobby is showing his dad what he had learned in class then then screams “That’s MY purse!” and kicks his dad!  I tell you what I was laughing so hard!  It was the funniest episode of King of the Hill that I had seen in a long time and I started laughing and laughing and laughing until I seriously had to grab the handles of the treadmill to keep myself upright as my legs where flailing around to keep me on the treadmill and much to my embarrassment it didn’t very well and I ended up going head over hills on the back of the treadmill and landed on my butt in front of EVERYONE there!  Now normally this would not be quite so horrible, but the gym I went to had the treadmills face every facet of the gym and everyone there saw me do it.  Oh well, it was really funny and if you can’t laugh, you’ll end up crying and that’s definitely NO fun!

Have a good one!

Hi Guys,

   Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but it’s been pretty crazy around here.  I always think, won’t it be so nice when life slows down?  OK – so that’s NEVER going to happen so I better start livin’ and lovin’ the crazy!  LOL 🙂

   Today’s color challenge Groovy guava, Barely Banana, Chocolate chip. Here is my attempt.   I saw this layout a while ago and really liked and I thought today would be the perfect day to use it 🙂  If you can’t tell, I am trying really hard to not use Tart and Tangy.  It almost feels like detox 🙂 Just kidding, but I am trying to use other sets 🙂

Hope you like!

Stamps:  Embrace Life
Paper:  Choc Chip, Barely Banana, Ginger Blossom DP
Ink:  Choc Chip, Barely Banana marker
Goodies:  Sponge daubers, ribbon, scallop scissors, silver brads
