The Longest Post Ever

That's because it has been forever since I've updated! What can I say, it's summer and I'm a busy lady. Lots of stuff to re-cap. Since pics uploaded in reverse I am explaining in revers too. One of my favorite little girls just had a birthday and I helped a little for her party. Like this super cute-sy banner. She is all about peace signs so the peace shape on my Slice machine was perfect! I also made itty, bitty peace signs to put on the cupcakes. So cute!
I also made birthday buttons with my Imaginisce I-top tool, they just came out with a button backer so I can do more than just custom brads - I gotta say, this thing R.O.C.K.S. How fun to make my own buttons?! Way cheaper than buying a button machine.
And here are two of my favorite girlies posing at Tori's party. (Tori on the right)
I've been making some hair clips too. They are so fun to put together and even more fun to shop for the pieces! I probably have a million things in my craft room that I can use but I just love to go looking for something new and inspiring.
A set all ready to give :)
Some bobby pin versions
Super cute button clips - these when to my Fogle girls, waiting for pics of them in action ;)

I just had to post this pic of me & my crazy friends. We decided that we couldn't let our hubbies think that Twilight's Edward and Jacob were the only boys in our hearts. We unveiled these on UFC fight night, the boys were, what are you girls doing?!

And going back to the 4th of July...
Kolbi spent the 4th in California with her friend Savanna so it was a weird, family shot of 3 for us this holiday. We had a blast at the parade downtown and then an awesome BBQ hosted by friends.
Here's the kids posing on Justin's hot rod for the 4th :)

There's no way this post would be complete without a few shots of our Eclipse premier preparations! Yeah, that's the button maker in action again...
Since Team Edward is the only way to be in my opinion, the only other option I gave was Team Jakeward (for those who can't choose).
We made bottle cap necklaces with Edward's sparkling face. Also, dangled little Fimo apples and a silver leaf from the red velvet ribbon. I'm pretty sure our necklaces were the best in the theater!
Finally, 'you brought a snack?' care packages for the flick!

Now, what about Father's day??? We made a little 'our Dad is a Hero' care package for Justin with all his favorite snacks in it.
Then spent the weekend at car shows cause that's one of Justin's favorite things to do.

Not just looking at cars this year, the Hot Rod was IN the show!
My brother came to visit from Phoenix and we went rafting. This was my 3rd time out with Cascade Raft & Kayak, seriously, this is the fun-nest thing to do. I don't even like water that much but the river is just beautiful and it is a blast.
Here's our group shot after we got off the river.
And here is me & my long, lost brother in front of the McCall lake. He stayed with us for a week and it was awesome getting to know him :)
Check out Kolbi's blue hair! Nichole snapped this pic and it turned out awesome! Her hair is already back to blond because as cute as the blue was it did not hold it's bright-ness for long.
