Temple Walk

 So the Young Women leaders in our ward decided to do a Temple Walk. It was 9.1 Miles. We started at 8:30 am and walked from the beach to the Newport Beach Temple. It took about 4 hours.. but every step was totally worth it! It was such a wonderful experience and it helped me get to know the girls a lot better! I heard about a group of girls that walked 22 miles.. After that.. I felt their pain! It was hard, but it was really fun!!

Tutu Team

Here is just another layout I made. My friends and I went to Disneyland for our 8th Grade graduation, but we decided to do something different.. so we were thinking and thinking.. and we came up with the brilliant idea to wear tutus! So we all went and bought supplies and we made our tutus. We got so many people to stare at us as we skipped down main street! It was so much fun!

You Shine like a Star!

So, a few months ago, My Aunt and I had a "sleepover" for three days, and scrapbooked till' we dropped! This is one of the three layouts that I made. It takes me much longer than my aunt because I am just a beginner... But oh well :)

Felt Flower Necklace

 This necklace was actually really easy to make. I love flowers and ruffles! This morning my mom told me "You look like a total scrapbooker", just because I had a grey ruffled shirt, a chipboard necklace made by my aunt, and my favorite flower bag. :) I just can't help it.
 Well anyway, here are the steps to make this necklace.
1) I went out and bought a wide variety of fabric, felt, ribbon, and buttons. (You can also just use what you have)
2) I started making all of the different flowers I knew how to make (They are all really simple and easy).
3) I cut out a piece of felt big enough to glue all of the flowers on it.
4) I placed all of the flowers where I wanted them, then I added a few things to spruce it up. I put some leaves here and there, and some buttons to top it off.
5) Then I just hot glued everything together, and I glued the chain to the back of the necklace, then put a nother piece of felt on top of each side of the chain.
( Make sure you glue all of the flowers to eachother so it will hang right when you are wearing it )
