Drive -Thru Soft Serve!

Hey friends! Hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Weekend!
Here is a recap of one of my favorite places to purchase ice cream.
It's located in Pleasanton, CA.
You don't even have to get out your car! Ha!  
These signs below greet you at the walk up window which is what we did on Saturday.
Opps... I snapped this picture after I tried it! :)
This is pineapple and orange sherbet mixed!
My niece and my son chose good ol' fashioned vanilla.
I love all things vintage and I wish my kids were able to experience life before iphones and play stations.
Thanks for taking this road trip with me!
This creamery is called Meadowlark Dairy.

Locks by Ashley from Flourish Hair Studio

Hey Friends... this is a totally non crafty post but I thought I would share because I am so happy with my locks! About a year ago I had a hair emergency! I mean like a bad bad dye job. I have always done my own hair with kits from Target because you know I DIY everything! Well this one day I decided I was going to let JCP salon dye my hair. Wrongo!
This is my hair now and I am finally at HAIR PEACE!

If you are in my area the babe who worked on my hair is Ashley from Flourish Hair Studio in San Ramon
snapped this as soon as I left the salon.


Ashley is awesome! She is so good at what she does. I swear we talk nonstop and have so much fun when I am there!

The before I will let the pictures speak fro themselves...
Photos on the Left are the bad dye job and the photo on the Right is what Ashley fixed. These pictures are from a year ago and I have continued to go lighter each time to achieve the look I have now.   

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my nightmare with you! ha!

Vintage Disneyland Themed Birthday Party!

Hey! Hi Friends! Today I am sharing some pictures from my sweet grandbabies first birthday! The theme was "Vintage Disneyland". I apologize now for the picture overload!  
My daughter made this cake and made that topper with my Cameo! I was amazed she figured it after being in the studio for less than a half an hour! 

This here banner came from @craftedbyjen I won it on her instagram! It was perfect for our party! 

How cute are these flamingo's with Mickey hats!?

I still can't believe my baby is ONE!

So one banner couldn't be enough so I made this banner to go on her highchair.

I used an old Disney book and cut the letters with my cameo. The faces were also cut from a book that I found at my local thrift store. 

Here is my daughter's sweet little family. 

Our party got rained out and we had to put plan B into action... Plan B was a Pizza Restaurant that had a party room... 

I did my best to transform this pizza place into a vintage Disneyland setting.

I made fruity pebbles Mickey Mouse shaped  Tinker Treats. I am so happy to report we did not have any Prince Charming Churros left otherwise I would of ate them at home! 

I purchased this book from the thrift store and my daughter painted the middle pages a midnight blue. 
I then cut out letters with my cameo. I also tried printable vinyl for the first time. I must say I give it a huge thumbs up!

too many goodies... 

Our party guests also dressed up as their favorite Disneyland characters.

We did not let the rain stop us ... It turned out to be a great birthday even if we had to move the party at the last minute.

Thanks for stopping by... here is a quick video of my sweet babies :)

#NSD I'm a guest artist over at Shimille.com

Hey Friends! Did you have a wonderful National Scrapbook day!? Did you pull your girlfriends together and get out the paper & glue!? 
I would love for you to pop on over @shimelle.com and see my guest artist layout. The technique is stamping. I stamped some cute bunny ears and cut them out and just had fun placing them everywhere! :)

Come and play! There is still time to create a page using a stamping technique and link up! I'd love to see what you create! Don't forget to link up here...shimelle.com

With that said ... here we are scrappin, wait is that a word? You know, I wish I could come up with a better name than scrapbooking.  I once thought of scrapboogers but it's really not cute. Hmmm... I will have to brainstorm some more.
 Our yearly traditional #NSD picture!
