{My Little Bro - Scotty}

This week my blessing LO is my little brother, Scotty.  He is serving a mission for our church right now in Antofagasta, Chile right now!  I am so proud of him, but of course I miss him too!


Isn't he so cute? I have good looking brothers. His mission is going really well for anyone who is interested. He's so positive and energetic about all his work. He's a great missionary!

That's two brothers down for blessing pages and two to go!

We watched the season premiere of the Amazing Race tonight! I'm SO EXCITED that its back on!!! Josh and I LOVE the Amazing Race. We like to pretend we are on it and have gone all the places that they go. I know - we're big nerds. I keep saying I need to get in shape so we can apply to be on it! We'd totally win a million dollars! HAHA

One last little thing. I took a little type test, to see how fast I type. I have no idea if this is an accurate test or what my results even mean really, but it was fun!

LOTS of fun goodies inside and its only 3 bucks!

One other new item from me today:

"Creative Block Templates 2"

Here is a LO from Kate using one of the templates (also based on my Hotdog King LO I posted above).

Thanks Kate! You rock.

Don't forget, everything (minus the grab bag) in my store is 30% off this weekend too, so now's the time to grab all the stuff on your wish-list!

How about some Show Offs??

All the Show Offs are getting my "Creative Block Templates 2" as their gift this week!! Thanks for showing off. I can't wait to see what you come up with next week!!!

Well - that's pretty much it for me today. Enjoy the sale, my grab bag, the blog train, the chat tomorrow, and all the other fun birthday stuff that's going on!

See ya!



Today we are beginning the 1st Birthday Celebration for my digi-scrap home,! It's hard to believe that its been an entire year already since we first opened up our little shop. But look how we've grown!

Well - you're here on your 3rd stop on the Birthday Blog Train. If you're following the train, you just came from Andrea's blog and now you've arrived here in Utah!

At each stop on our Birthday Blog train we'll be telling you about a birthday tradition that we enjoy! One thing my family does for birthdays is to sing 'Happy Birthday' in what has become known as "Rodee-style" (Rodee is my maiden name). What is "Rodee-style" you ask? Well - no one in the Rodee family is particularly talented in the singing department, so instead of struggling through an akward attempt at singing nicely, we just started singing "Happy Birthday" in the most horrible off key bizarre way possible. It's pretty awful sounding but ALWAYS cracks up the birthday boy or girl. We've been doing it for YEARS. I can't even remember when it started, but its a lot of fun! It just gets more awful sounding, louder, and crazier as the years go by. We used to not sing Rodee-style in front of anyone that wasn't family, but in the last year a few 'out-siders' have witnessed "Rodee-style" and we even sang it in a RESTAURANT this summer for Josh's birthday! THAT WAS SO EMBARRASSING AND TOTALLY NOT MY IDEA!!!!

Ok - enough about my goofy family and our random traditions!! On to what you came here for - your FREEBIE!

Download your free brag book page HERE

At each stop along the blog train you'll be picking up more brag book pages AND some other little goodies too. This brag book was created by ScrapMatters' huge new collab kit "You Say Its Your Birthday", which is FREE with a $10 purchase in the SM store now through Monday! It's ENORMOUS, and so versatile. I'd DEFINITELY pick it up if I were you.

Here is the page I created with it! This is my little nephew at his first birthday party.

Be sure to stop in at ScrapMatters during our fun birthday celebration. There's a great chat planned for tomorrow (Saturday, 9/27) at 12 noon Mountain Time. Lots of prizes and goodies up for grabs for those attending the chat! Check out this thread for more info!

OK - its time to roll on over to the next Birthday Blog Train stop! Your next stop is all the way in RUSSIA! ---> It's Muss' blog, ScrapMuss Designs!

Happy travels!  (I'll be posting my own grab bag and Show Offs in a couple hours).  So have fun on our blog train and then check back later. :)

{I'm a speed scrappin' machine}

ScrapMatters is now doing two speed scraps a week.  One daytime, and one evening.  This week I was able to do both!!

Last night I made this:


And this afternoon I made this:


I've been pulling out the older photos these days, from when Josh and I were still dating! It's so fun to see them. :) And I know someday our kids will enjoy looking at them too.

Life's been busy lately! Monday I did a quick photo shoot with my friend Leslie and her family. They are in town from Denver. It was fun to take their pictures. You can see a few on my photo blog if you want.

Straight after that Josh and I went out to dinner and then back home to watch the season premiere of Heroes! For those of you who don't know, Josh's aunt, Cristine Rose, plays Angela Petrelli on Heroes so we were ESPECIALLY excited about the premier. Her role is really blowing up and we couldn't be more proud or excited!

Then yesterday we (a few of my girlfriends from high school) met Leslie for lunch. We haven't hung out for a long time so we ended up gabbing and having a THREE HOUR lunch! haha We could chat all day if we had the time! Then it was home to finish cranking out my GRAB BAG for this Friday!! Yes, I'm releasing a grab bag on Friday! WOO HOO!! It's to celebrate ScrapMatters' 1st Birthday!! We're having a little party.

I can't believe its already been a year since we opened.  We've grown so much!  It's totally exciting!! :)

Tonight I'm meeting my family for dinner and then we're going to the temple. We try and go all together once a month, but it doesn't always happen. But I'm glad we are going tonight. It will be fun!

There's always something going on!!

Well - I guess that's it from me for today! Gotta get back to work. See ya!

{brother blessing}

For those of you who don't know - I have 4 younger brothers. No sisters. I decided to scrap each of them in my blessing book in no particular order. First up - Chad! Chad is one of the twins, the younger of the two (who are just younger than me ).

{credits here}

Isn't he so good lookin'? I love him.

Hope you are all having a great Sunday! I'm off to bed now. Short and sweet post tonight! haha

See ya!

{2 announcements}

I have two little announcements to make for ScrapMatters.

1) We have a ROCKIN' new designer starting up today. She has been delayed for a couple weeks due to a computer problem, but she's FINALLY back on track and premiering TODAY and I couldn't be more excited! And she's having a big sale on her stuff to celebrate her arrival! So, please help me welcome JenLin Designs to ScrapMatters!!

I know her ad says she's opening tomorrow but she got so excited she opened up shop TODAY! Her stuff is GORGEOUS so have fun browsing and shopping.

and 2) there's a speed scrap TONIGHT. 7:00 Mountain Time. I think I can go to Josh's soccer game and make it back to Speed Scrap too!

Check out the announcement thread here to see the awesome participation prize that's up for grabs tonight! It's really cool.

That's it! Those are my two announcements. Just helping out to spread the word.

Hope everyone's having a fun day. I'm just finishing up last minute things, getting ready for my kit release tomorrow! I can't wait!! Just wait until you see what the Britt Girls have scrapped with it! They are so awesome!

Ok - until tomorrow . . .

{thanks for stickin' up for me!}

Wow.  So many of you left such nice comments and sent such nice emails.  It's good to know that I have SO MANY people in my corner! Thank you so so much. And just to let you know, I'm totally over all that cyber-bully drama. It's not worth letting a few meanies ruin all the fun. I decided to just get over and throw myself into my next kit. Which brings me to . . .

A sneak peek! Well, a 'speedy' peek actually. Here's just a taste of what's to come on Friday! I think you are all going to luv it!

I am so excited for Friday!! Hope you are too!

In other news, I did the daytime speed scrap at SM yesterday and here's what I ended up with!

{full credits here and here}

Yep! A whole 2-pager in just over an hour. I was pretty proud of myself. haha

There's also a fun new Tuesday Template challenge going on at SM. Here is my LO for it.

{full credits here}

Dug out some older pics (from back in '05).  Anyway - if you want this cute template, you can snag it here.  Then play along in the challenge.  It's super fun.

Well - that's about it. I'm off to meet a friend for lunch! YAY.

See ya!
