Things that a guest blogger would say: Let Freedom Ring edition

 I'm guest blogging over a Scrapbooksteals.com today!

Please check out the steal that is associated with my guest blog here! You can get all sorts of scrapbooking ideas and supplies by checking the site out.

I had SO much fun creating these pages & craft with Let Freedom Ring Collection kit. You can buy your very own kit here.

Here's my blurb:

Wow I can't believe I'm really a guest blogger here at scrapbooksteals.com! I have always loved American Crafts - Pebbles products, and was so ecstatic that I was given Let Freedom Ring Collection.

I really wanted to create something that wasn't just an ordinary page. I wanted to use my paper to create some home decor, because, let's be honest my house doesn't have very much. :) Since my husband and I love motorcycles, I thought it would be fun to create a little road trip that we've sort of always wanted to take on our own motorcycle. 

This patterned paper that I used in the frame was perfect for creating a cute design for my home, a love for our country and a love for motorcycles. Simple, yet perfect.

My next page is of my adorable husband, who was definitely "born 2 ride." I have learned through scrapping that adding a bit of red to a page makes everything pop. Which, with my husbands shirt, a few stripes, banners, and a dazzling #2, did just that.

Since I created a page of my husband, I had to do one of me too. Though I am not a motorcyclist I had to show the hubby that I could actually hold up the bike and look like a total "biker babe" to him.

The colors of this page are a definite favorite for me! One thing that I especially love about American Crafts - Pebbles paper is those little strips that are always cut off on the 12x12 sheets. AC - Pebbles takes full advantage of paper, and you're able to use those strips in your pages. That's what I did with this next page:
 I really loved working with Let Freedom Ring Collection, and is a must have for the upcoming July 4th Holiday!

Things that are Dirty!

Yup I’m finally getting to my dirty dash post, after almost a month. Chase and I had a blast! We will definitely be doing it next year too! :) Thankfully we had Chase’s brother come and take pictures. He trekked out in the mud and took pictures of our whole team + the goggie! It was great fun!

Here are some of my favorites that Logan took.

Things that have gone missing…

That would be me! :) I’ve definitely gone missing for 2 months! Hopefully I’m back. I don’t know though. I have said that a lot and then give people false expectations and then fall back into my missing phase. A lot has been going on. Here are some updates with us:

-I got a new job position, full time doing what I do best, finding mistakes. :) This takes up most of my time for sure.

- Chase and I went on a Charity ride here in EM. Turned out it was going to be freezing and raining the whole time. This time unlike the last time we were prepared. :)

- Ran the Elevate 5K with my friend Alli. Beat my time by a minute and started training that same week I ran the race. :) So happy with myself! Iron Man also made an appearance.

- Iron man aka. Chase walked the Art City Day’s Parade with Air Time Gymnastics. Got a lot of little kids wanting pictures with Iron Man.

-Signed up for my first 10k! EEK! Less than a month a way!

-Went to my first ever Demolition Derby! Super fun! Definitely want to go again!

- Went trail running for the first time and had a ton of fun! I think Hurley did too! :)

- Have played a LOT of Just Dance for the Wii!


Wow! I guess we have been up to lots of stuff. I guess that just means I have a lot to post about huh? :)
