It is that time of year again. You know, when you bake all those yummy treats and put on 10-20 pounds!!! LOL! My first request was for a pumpkin roll for Thanksgiving. One of our family faves! I make 2 just for my house! This was the first one (they got better as I practiced).
Pumpkin Roll
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup pumpkin (canned solid pack)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup flour
Grease cookie sheet and line it with wax paper then grease the wax paper. Combine all ingredients together and spread evenly over the wax paper. Sprinkle with finely chopped pecans if desired. (I don't) Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Take out of oven and sprinkle with powered sugar on the top. roll up in a dish towel and let it cool completely in the refrigerator for one hour.
1 8 oz. pack cream cheese
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup powered sugar
Remove the pumpkin roll from the refrigerator and roll it back out.
After combining all ingredients for the filling spread the filling evenly over the pumpkin roll. Roll the pumpkin roll back up and refrigerate it for at least one hour.

FWF Friday! Circus Style!

This was one of the BEST trips we've ever made! It was spur of the moment and the boys had never been before... I went in school, but I guess they don't do that anymore. Anyway, I add color to the stamps using rub-ons. I think it's just the right touch. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Birthday, Birthday, and MORE FWF Birthday!

It's official... My twins are 11!!! I can't believe how fast it's going!
I put A LOT of thought into their birthday party this year and I think they really enjoyed it (at least I hope so).
Here's the CAKE...

The decorations. I made this candy steamer using an idea on the Martha Stewart show. It was glittery and fun.
The theme was skater dude, guitar,and bikes with lots of color. It's hard decorating for a bunch of boys.
Thankfully I got my girlie style on when doing this card for our neighbor.!

I used another stamp for the inside sentiment.

That's all for today!
Have a GREAT weekend!

I've been published!

I'm the type of person that feels everything should be leading to something. I often approach my crafting with that mindset, so I REALLY wanted to see a project and my name in print! It FINALLY happened with the July issue of Cards!

So fun!!! :)

Catching My Breath--PICTURE HEAVY!!!!!!

We had so much fun at the fair!! I've been so busy that I'm only now getting to share the pictures. As a special treat my Mom went with us.

We got to see the boys.... HA!

This was Timothy's first time riding the fair rides and I think it's safe to say that he had a BLAST!!

When we got home we watched the local news and they showed Nick & Noah sliding down this slide!!!! How cool!!!

This is without a doubt my absolutely favorite ride!!! Loved sharing that with the twins!!

I DON'T DO HEIGHTS! But these guys do!!! :)

I have so much more to share so check back! There are more pics from the fair, some cool crafts I did for the twins birthday party, and even a layout!!!! Yes, I did squeeze in a scrapbook page. It actually took me 4 DAYS to do, but little by little I got it done!!!
