I'm a winner!

As you can tell by my "favorites" blog list on the side there that I have many places I like to visit. One of them is a blog from the makers of CARDS magazine. I LOVE this magazine and any time I stop in my local craft store I pick the newest one up for inspiration. I would love to have a subscription to this magazine but they are a little pricey for me right now. Someday. Anyway I left a random comment on one of there giveaway posts and was randomly selected as the winner! What did I win you ask, well I'm not really sure. It's a Halloween pack of goodies from Helen Dardik, not too familiar with her stuff but hey not complaining. I'll share what it is I won once it arrives. Until then I'll be stalking my mailman.

pumpkin topiary

This is something we did for my sister's ward R.S. meeting (use to be enrichment) to got with their fall theme for the evening. I think they turned out pretty cute. I'd love to put a bigger version with lots of leaves and berries on my front porch. Thanks for letting me help Lacey.

Couple of cards

First is my R.S. birthday card for the month of October

And this one is just one I made a good friend for her birthday.

Bushels of Blessings

Big sigh! Yeah I made it through, it was close though. I thought for sure I would be moved by now and wouldn't be doing the Activity Days dinner, but here I am. Really though it wasn't that bad. I decided on the theme "Bushels of Blessings" and using apples. This wasn't quite as over the top as last year but I think the girls enjoyed it as did their parents.

I did digital invitations this time instead of my handmade and they turned out pretty cute.

I also use some of my digital stuff from fabulous Kristin Aagard's "Sweet Apple" collection, for my program cover. Love her stuff!!

Centerpieces I found these great tubs at Target in their dollar section for only $2.50 and that scrapbook paper was also in the dollar section and was perfect!

For a treat for the girls I made them each a caramel apple with chocolate and sprinkles. I also found these baskets in the dollor section at Target.

Kara from "Kara's cupcakes" did these super cute cupcakes and they went perfect with my theme, thanks for the help Kara! I used them for decoration on the food table, everyone was anxious to get their hands on these.

The food wasn't anything super fabulous, ham, funeral potatoes, salad, rolls, and apple crisp for the adults.

It all went really well and everyone seemed to have a good time. I only had one hiccup, the ham wasn't warmed through when it came time to eat so I just cut off the warmed outside parts. It didn't look very pretty but no one seemed to mind.

I'm almost positive this was my last activity days dinner but you never know, maybe I'll be in activity days again when I move.

(for those who don't know what activity days are in our church girls ages 8 to 11 meet twice a month for an activity and do work towards their "Faith in God" award, if you'd like more info please visit here)
