The Latest Layout

This is my latest layout that I made for a critique a couple of weeks ago. Let me just tell ya- This sure was out of my comfort zone. Our challenge was to use different lines of paper in one layout. I really enjoyed it though. It's helping me to see all the possibilities I can do! -Enjoy!

Just some Layouts

These are a few of my layouts that I have made for the critiques that we have at work. We have a challenge each week when we do our layout. It's a really good thing for me-so then I will use a variety of techniques, product, etc. Can I just say that I love my job! :)

Christmas Spirit

Okay, I know it has been a while since Thanksgiving break, but I am finally getting to blogging it. I enjoy the Christmas time so much. The day after thanksgiving we put up the tree and decorated inside and out! Literally. We then made some yummy yummy spiced walnuts and almonds! My mom and Kendra also made ginger snaps for our Widow party that we have every year for the widows in our town that we had that following Sunday. We had a busy holiday, but such a great time!

Inspiration for Creativity

At work, while we are designing, sometimes we need to take a break from what we are doing and find inspiration. I really enjoy looking around the web at blogs and websites for inspiration from others. If only I could do crafty things and scrapbook all day long--I would be in heaven! I cannot believe how many creative people there are out in the world. If you would like to see the inspiration I have found and want to add a little creative spunk into your life , I will be making a new link set on the side of blogs and websites that inspire me that could help you as well. I am going to put a little twist into my blog in the near future. There are great ideas for things to do for the holidays. What a fun way to spruce up the holidays I would have to say. I hope these places will inspire you as much as they have inspired me. Leave a comment and let me know what you think of this idea! PLEASE I would appreciate it. AND do you have any thing/place that inspires you? I would love to know!

Thanksgiving Day

A picture of the whole group excluding me because I was taking it.

The placecards that my mom and I made.

A few of the essentials of a thanksgiving meal:

The yummy rolls that my aunt made!

A very great turkey that was so moist and savory.

My mom's famous gravy. Look at the steam that is coming off that gravy.

Thanksgiving this year was different then any of the other years. We usually spend Thanksgiving at my Grandma Robinson's house, but my dad wanted to do it at home this year. We spent Thanksgiving at home with my mom and dad, Kendra, Shean, my aunt Susan and uncle Randall and my cousin Amanda. It was quite small this year, but it was actually relaxing. It was really enjoyable and I think we made it quite fun and a new tradition than what we have done in the past.

The Beginning of Thanksgiving Break

On Tuesday night, a bunch of my friends and I were so excited that it was finally Thanksgiving break. We decided to celebrate, so we went to chili's late that night. We took a few pictures on the way there and then, of course, pictures of us enjoying our food. We all got quite the variety of foods: Bacon Cheeseburger, fries dipped with icecream, lava molten cakes, and chips and salsa. YUMMMMY! What a great way to start off the holiday break.

Kendra's Shower

A couple weeks ago Kendra had a few bridal showers up at home. It was a great weekend to see all the cousins and friends from town. We are so excited for Kendra and Shean!

Nate and Mckenna have so much fun when they are together. What cute 2nd Cousins!

A picture of my sisters and our favorite niece, Mckenna (she was getting tired by then).

The Ratings

These were just a few pictures that were taken before the movie.

These pictures were taken outside the theatre while we were waiting in line to go see it.
My roommates wanted to buy t-shirts and wear them to the show, but I thought I would design some and have them made from a good friend for a lot cheaper! They thought that was a great idea. Not only was it cheaper, but they were customized! :) Side note: 01 not only stands for Edward, it also stands for apartment #1. We thought that was pretty clever.

I know it has taken me forever to post this, but I have been super super busy. Twilight was awesome everyone! I just thought I would tell you that I really did enjoy it and I hope that you will like it as much as I did. The movie went so fast it felt like since it followed the book very well! For those of you who have not read the book, I recommend that you read the book before you go so you don't think we, as readers, are lame. You will also enjoy the movie a lot more, hopefully. I have heard a lot that like it and a lot that don't care for it. I can't wait for the next one to come out.

I know I know there are probably a lot of you who are jealous. Just kidding! There are probably a lot of you who don't care and think this is another High School Musical movie, but not really for me! I would probably think that way if I haven't read the books. Yes! That's right! My roommates and I got tickets 2 weeks in advance so we could see it at the midnight showing. I have never done this before. Some of my roommates are so into it that they are one of those who dresses up like a vampire to go to the movie. That's going a little too far for me. BUT I designed some t-shirts to be printed so we could have unique shirts. I'll take pictures when we wear them. I just hope that the movie is as good as the books. The characters for Bella and Edward seem a little iffy. I hope I can fall in love with them as much as I have in the books. :)

The New Canon SD1100

I have been wanting a good quality camera to take descent pictures for a while now. Ever since I started scrapbooking at work and they want some good looking pictures I thought I should invest in a camera so i can use my own, personal photos. I love this camera already! I guess if Mollie recommended it and approved of it, then it's a really nice camera.

Ninja Invaders

This top picture is me with all my roomies! They are so fun!

This past Tuesday night (yes this past week has been loaded with activities right and left) our roommate came into one of the rooms dressed up as a ninja and made us all jump. She thought we should all dress up as ninjas and go around and invade all the apartments. We got a few screams and laughs and others just looked at us and was wondering what the heck we are doing. It was so much fun! It sure entertained all of us. We were having so much fun that after we did all 32 apartments in our complex we went next door and did random people who we have no idea who they were. It's fun doing it to people we have no idea who they are because we can be as goofy as we want to. :) Oh the life of a college student!

Did I say Jazz fan!?

This past Monday I got to meet the Jazz players! It was a lot of fun! One of the things that I have always wanted to do is meet Deron Williams and get his autograph. I went with my sister and her fiance, Shean and I took a friend along with me as well. I am so excited for this season to start! I just wanted to tell everyone about my excitement since I haven't posted for a while. :) Oh and I wish I knew how to rotate pictures on a Mac so let me know if you know how!

Happy Birthday Kendra!

Happy Birthday big sister! Kendra is such an amazing person! I am so lucky to have her as a sister and not only as a sister, but as a best friend. She is so fun to be around. She does so much for me in every way possible! I probably couldn't get things done if I didn't have her helping me. She is a very talented girl. I Love you so much and wish the best for you. I LOVE YOU!


Okay okay.. for everyone who doesn't already know, I got a new job! YIPEE for me! I got a job at American Crafts as an in-house scrapbooker and product designer! Man am I ever excited! I have been wanting to be in this position for a very very long time. I have been very patient to hear back about this job, let me tell ya! I had an interview with the "boss" 3 weeks ago! Now can I tell you how excited I am to get this job? I am not a very patient person, but I held out! I'll have to blog about my first day of work in 2 weeks!

Long Time

Wow! So it has been quite a while since I have posted! I have been very busy with my time. So sorry it has been a while since I have done ANYTHING. I guess there must not be anything too exciting write about either. I don't even have cool pictures to post. I'll have to make a "random" post like everyone else does once in a while. So this is what I have been up to lately: School, work, my calling, and homework. NON STOP that is! School has started in full swing! I have projects after projects in 2 out of 3 classes. It doesn't seem like that many, but it adds up when you have to do projects and not "paper" homework if you know what I mean. My favorite class and probably the most helpful class to my major is Typography and Layout 1. It is a lot of work, but it's going to be a challenge! For my second assignment in this class, we have to design a layout that has a good texture by just using type. I thought it was only going to take me an hour to do 10, BUT it took me 4 hours! We had to draw the font as good as we could! So time consuming. I will have to show you the final project when i get it done! Sorry that's all I have to say, boring I know..... I told you so!

Happy Birthday Elder Summerhays!

Happy 20th Birthday Elder Summerhays! He is a really good friend of mine. He is on a mission in Macon, GA mission. He will have been out a year on November 7th. He wanted me to post a few pictures of him so I just thought it would be a great idea to do it for his birthday! :) For those of you who don't know Mike, he is a really neat guy! He has such an awesome personality! I am pretty sure that he can be friends with anyone! These are just a few pictures of what he did on one of his P-days.

Lava Hot Springs

I should not have added this one last because it is now the first one! Yeah we ate candy!
Mollie blowing up her tube! It took forever to blow them up!

And of course, Me being a dork!

Jenni and Mollie showing off our awesome cabin!

I'll have to put more pictures on when I get them from Jenni and Mollie. ENJOY!
This past Monday and Tuesday I went to Lava Hot springs with Jenni and Mollie for a little trip before life gets wild with school and all. We stayed in this really nice cabin right in town. I cannot believe how nice this place is for Lava Hot Springs! When we first got there, we put on our swimming suits and blew up our tubes to go float down the river! It was so much fun! I have never done it on a single tube before. We all fell off at one point of floating the river. I got scrapes on my fingers that won't stop stinging! :) and a big nasty bruise on my leg.
After we floated the river... oh wait! Jenni lost the key to the car so we had to figure that one out! Luckily she had a spare at the cabin so we didn't even have to break into her car for that! We then went to the pool and just floated on our tubes and laid out reading our books and stuff.
After that, we decided to go rinse off and relax at the cabin by watching a movie! Nothing too exciting, but it was nice! Later that night, we went to the HOT pools! Wow they are pretty warm during the summer! I never go when it's hot outside, but it felt really relaxing. We stayed there for a couple of hours and then went back to our cabin to watch another movie that I fell asleep too! Of course! :)

3 Weekends in a Row!

This past weekend I was in Bear Lake with the family. This is about the only picture I got, unfortunately. BUT it still is way cute! For some reason when I rotate the picture, it won't stay that way when I upload them to blogger. Sorry for the ones that are sideways. Mckenna just loves to help "Gamma" do EVERYTHING!! She thinks she is so big!

This is Jenni and I at the craft fair during Raspberry Days the week before! I had so much fun hanging out with her! We have some good times. Especially drinking that good homemade rootbeer! :)

Here is Mckenna eating a yummy hot dog at the craft fair as well! She LOVES hot dogs. I love when you tell her to smile and say "Cheese" to the camera... you get her saying cheese and no smile! Gotta Love it!

I was able to go to the Rodeo with Jackie the week before Raspberry days! It was okay this year, but they have done better. It was good to be able to be with Jackie! We have some good times together!

That is what I have been up to the past 3 weekends! I'm quite sad to say I don't know when I will return to Bear Lake for some more fun! Thanks everyone for the entertainment this summer! I cannot believe school is about to start AGAIN! Oh the good times we share!

Color Me Mine!

At the end of July for our enrichment activity we went to Color Me Mine at Riverwoods in Provo. It was so much fun to be with just girls. I think everyone had a really fun time. I made a chip/dip bowl. Mollie made a vase and the other girls made things such as: mug, coasters, and a dish to put your dirty spoon on while cooking kind-of-a-thing. If you ever have the urge to do something creative and artsy go to Color Me Mine. It's a lot of fun! Sorry I don't have any pictures of this event yet because I left my camera at my sister's. Pictures coming soon!

"Ghost Ride Da Whip"

Okay so last week, July 24th to be exact, me and a bunch of my friends decided to do this video called "Ghost Ride" I have never heard anything about it, knowing me. We went in my friend Ryan's truck to the UVU parking lot across the street from where we live to film it. Check out my friends Russ and Selena's Blog to see a video of what we did. It's not the best quality, but it works. :)
Well, here it is folks, my first blogger award, I would like to thank everyone who made this possible!

This Prestigious award was given to me by my best friend Chris Clark. His blog is awesome and I am so grateful to have such an amazing friend like Chris in my life. It made my day to know that he chose me!

So, there are rules to this award.

2. Add a link to the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate 7 other people for this award and add links to their blog.

Well there are a lot of people out there who deserve this award that I know. I do not have any certain order as well. I would say Chris again, but he already received this award.

I would have to say my sister Jackie Sealy! Congratulations! You just received your first blogger award! Jackie is one of my very best friends and I am glad she keeps her blog updated so I can see her cute little family.

Congrats for having such a cute blog. :)

Camping in June

A bunch of us just being crazy.

Mollie loves to entertain! :) Maybe that's where I got it from.

We found some really cool stuff to make our fire look like this! All it took was taking a picture! :)

This is where Mollie and I slept that night! Believe me- I will never sleep under the stars unless on a trampoline. Haha

Me and the guys! our other roommates weren't there yet.

Mollie posing for I don't know what.

Me and my crazy eyes with Mollie. It was pretty dark out there.

I know this was a while ago, but it is something to blog about. I went camping the end of June with a group of people. I'll just tell you that my kind of camping is sleeping in a hotel. :) I am not much of a camper, BUT one night is great! I just like to be clean and not have dirt all over me. We went up Provo canyon and went up Vivian park way far up and ended up camping the "rough" way. There was a little park below the place where we camped and we played with a football and a frisbee. We roasted marshmallows and hot dogs! Then we decided to play a little sherades (spelling?) around the campfire which turned out to be a lot of fun. These are just a few silly pictures from the camp out. What crazy clean fun we had!
