A Christmas Tradition from Grandma

Job Interview!

This page was made using Flutter Expressions' new kit Orange Peel.
You can get it at Elemental Scraps
It came out about a month ago and is mainly orange [duh!]
but I couldn't get enough of these fabulous greys!

And I am a FIRM believer in the idea that just because you don't have a picture for it, doesn't mean you shouldn't scrap the story. It's all about recording things! [and it's all the better if you make them cute recorded things. :)]

Gettin' Down on the Farm.

a little ditty for the 2009 album. These pictures are from [gasp!] June.
Just getting around to it now.
I feel a premature New Year's Resolution coming on...

I used the kit Bold n' Dirty from Flutter Expressions.

Template Freebie! and I'm Back!

 I'm sorry I haven't been alive for a while! For those of you who don't know, I'm in my final semester here at BYU, and midterms were a little hairy! I'm so glad to be able to be back in action, though. This is what I love! As a please forgive me I'll never do it again present, I decided to give away this super cute template! If you use it, please e-mail me an image of your layout, I'd love to see it! [and my favorite might just get my brand new "Wild Thing" kit...*hint*]

Au Naturale Challenge Day 5: Motivate

My sister told me once that the quickest way to motivate yourself is to take a stand for something that really matters to you. So, loving yourself will be easier if it is connected to something you already deem important. For your comment this time, I would love you to fill in the blank to this sentence.

Starting right now, I will never ______________________ again. Not even once!

Here's mine!

Starting right now, I will never go to sleep without saying I love you to my husband. Not even once! 

After you finish this last challenge, send an e-mail to [at] gmail [dot] com and I'll send you the link!

Au Naturale Kit Sneak Peak!

For your viewing pleasure and motivation, here's a little sneak peak of the Au Naturale kit!

Au Naturale Challenge Day 3: Cleanse

Hi Ladies! Have you enjoyed your break from me? We've been having intense internet issues lately, but I'm back on. I apologize for the delay. Here's day 3, we're cleansing today. There are so many messages out there in the media that are telling us to look this way, dress this way, talk this way, be this way, and they're all completely unrealistic.

Every marketing message is meant to make us unhappy with ourselves in one way or another, so today I challenge you to be stronger than the billboard, TV commercial, or in store display. You do not have to be free of wrinkles, perfect complexion, size 2, designer jeans, etc. to be beautiful. That's not what it's all about. So cleanse yourself of these influences today-however you want to. And come let us know how you're feeling now! 

Isn't that refreshing?

Remember, after completing these challenges, the Au Naturale kit is yours free! {sneak peak to come later today!}

p.s. my blog got a little facelift today-what do you think?

Au Naturale Challenge Day 2: The Little Things

Welcome to day 2 my beautiful girls! Today, I'm challenging you [and myself!] to do one act of selfless service. It doesn't have to be anything big.
  • Write a note to your husband/sister/friend/roommate/etc.
  • Call your mom! 
  • Give something to the man on the street.
  • Take that load of stuff to the Salvation Army/Deseret Industries
  • Call a friend and offer to take her kid home from school.
  • Drop everything and kiss your man senseless when he walks through the door. [most likely sparking "ewww"s from the kids, but totally worth it! and how great do you think he feels when he knows he's your #1, and you've been so excited to see him all day?]
  • Smile at somebody you don't know!
  • Pay for the person behind you at Starbucks.
Really, just take a minute and forget yourself to focus completely on someone else & then come and tell us what you did! 

I'll go first: I bought a jar of hot pickled okra for my husband. He raves about it all the time, and it just grosses me out-so he hasn't had any since we got married. He's thrilled. :)

There's no easier way to boost your mood than through realistic service. You don't have to go and save the world every day. Just make one other person's day and it will change yours for the better.

I can't wait to hear from you!

Au Naturale Challenge Day 1: Love

To kick off our Au Naturale challenge, I’d love to know something you love about yourself. I’m asking to know what you love about yourself, not like about yourself, don’t hate about yourself, or can live with about yourself, what you LOVE about yourself. This isn’t bragging about yourself. I’m asking to know! And it’s always nice to remember your awesome qualities. They so often get pushed to the side by our weaknesses, but today, it’s time to be nice to yourself.
I’ll go first:

I love that I can create beautiful things.

Now I want to hear from you! What do you just LOVE about yourself?

Remember, after completing this challenge, the new Au Naturale kit is yours free!

Serendipity #1

I received this from an old high school friend and thought it would be just perfect for a new kit! I'd love to hear what you think!

Hi beautiful girls!

So an idea got brought to my attention regarding fasting. This week myself and some of the girls will be fasting anything we do to beautify ourselves or as I like to call it (enhance what we already For some of you this type of fast may not be a huge sacrifice but for a girl like myself I love putting on make-up doing my hair every morning and dressing up. So the challenge would be to go all natural for 5 days and see what desires God has put in your heart "uncovered" not clouded with beauty products or fashionable clothing.

Im not saying make yourself look bad, just all natural. For some of you, you know your beauty is natural and this may not be a sacrificing fast. But if it is I wanted to challenge girls group to a 5 day fast I like to call "uncovered". Pray all week and see what God is speaking to you about your self-image, your true desires in your heart that have nothing to do with outward appearence but rather your heart. Do whatever you think God is challenging you to do. For example I may have to do something with my hair and clothes for the kind of job I have.

It will be interesting to hear what God does through this. Having a good self-image is so important to God, as we were made in his likeness and identity. We should be confident in our own identity and that starts in the heart and realize our true beauty and the way God see's us. As for myself I struggled with not just self-esteem issues but self-loathing, it tore me apart, it tore other people in my life apart, and everyday Im still being delivered from it piece by piece, my image and identity has been my biggest struggle,and I think most women struggle with this to a degree. Maybe not in the degree I did, but some degree. If your doing the fast I would love to hear stories about things God did in your life, through it and after it.

Love you my beauties!!!

Love and Blessings!


The new kit will be called "Au Naturale." If you decide to participate in the challenge, and share your experience with me, the kit is yours free!

Can't wait to see what blessings come from this for all of us!

Getting Serious

I've decided to join the world of digi-scrappers with design blogs. Entries published previously may not be completely credited because they were all imported from my personal blog. When I have more time, I intend to go back and give credit where credit is due, but for now, I apologize! Following this post, every LO will be appropriately sourced.

I've also started designing my own kits. I hope to be able to sell them in the near future. They're pretty cute and I can't wait to show them to you! But for now, I need prayers to be accepted as a designer in an established shop and comments to up the credibility of this blog. You're wonderful!

Thanks for your understanding!

Scrapping some overdue stuff!

In my scrapbooking life, I'm currently working on 3 different books. 1 album of 2009. 1 album of 2008. and 1 album of our wedding. I managed to finish up 4 more pages and I thought I'd share the beauty with you!

These first two were made with Amy Teets' new kit "Spring Fling" it goes on sale at A Cherry On Top on Friday. I really can't get enough of those scripted clouds and trees. Mmm. It seemed like everything I made with this kit looked good! These pages are to go in the 2008 album. They're some of our engagement pictures. My goodness he's handsome, don't you think?

These next two layouts were done with the "I Love You This Much" kit from Foxy Designs. Also set to come out on Friday. Yay for new things to work with! The first page is from our first dance at our wedding.

This page is illustrating the amazing-ness that is the last day of school party! Text reads: Grandpa Frost passed away the week school let out in AZ. Everyone came home for the funeral, and managed to get there in time for the last day of school party, a tradition that has been in my family for decades. It was so fun to have everyone in town again! It normally involves shaving cream fights, pie fights, water balloons, junk food, watermelon, silly string, and super soakers. Since Cameron was new to the family I didn’t know how he would take the mayhem. Turns out he fit right in, and whooped my fanny at just about everything. I’m so grateful to have a husband who doesn’t expect me to be a boring grown-up all the time. We’re immature together! That's why I love you.

Scrappy Scrap Update! :)

1. Finishing my internship

I worked all summer as the marketing intern at a cute little shopping center called Gardner Village. It really was a blast. I enjoyed everything about it except for the hour-long drive during rush hour traffic there and back. It really took a toll on our gas budget and made it hard for me to ever cook dinner. If I did cook, we ate at about 8. I love LOVE being a housewife, but I’m so busy a lot of the time that I don’t make a very good one. I was set to finish my internship on the 31st of July, but when I went in on the 28th, my boss surprised me with my check and a super cute mail organizer. I submitted my portfolio and took this picture on the drive home. When I told Cameron that I never had to make that drive again, he scooped me up and kissed me good. :) That Saturday he promised me we could celebrate. We did a session at the temple and set off to find a restaurant for dinner. Sushi is my favorite food ever, but it is very expensive. Cam spoiled me rotten by letting us go to The Happy Sumo for some yummy sushi rolls & edamame. He loved it too, which is lucky for me! He didn’t even complain about the $50 cost of it all and made sure I ordered exactly what I wanted. We wandered through Borders so we could make some room for dessert. Cam let me pick this too, and we grabbed a couple frapps at Starbucks. The night had “Kristin” written all over it. I am so lucky to have a husband who makes me feel so special. There are very few things in this world that make me smile like that. Cameron is one of them.

2. 4th of July

Wayne, Adrienne & Amberlee came up for the 4th of July this year. We had a barbecue for dinner out at their campsite. When the grill was hot and ready for the burgers, we realized we had forgotten the patties! Adrienne, Amber and I drove to Wal-mart to pick up our favorite burgers, ate super quick, and headed off to the Stadium of Fire.

3. Yay :)

4. Flowers 4 Grandpa

Grandpa Frost passed away after a long battle with a variety of illnesses. He grew up in Kanab, so my Grandma asked me and Cam to pick up some sagebrush on our way home, to be used in some of the flower arrangements. We stopped in Kanab and asked a few people if they knew what sagebrush looked like. As it turns out, it’s everywhere up there! We were honored to be able to bring a little bit of comfort to my Grandma and some flowers for Grandpa.

5. At the Hot Spring

on June 12th, we hiked the hot springs with Cameron Crockett and his fiancee Tyne. The water was beautiful and felt great after a long day. This was part of our fake second honeymoon, where we just disappeared for the weekend. Sometimes I really love not being “find-able.”

Oquirrh Mountain Open House

I finally have some time to scrapbook, so I'm catching up! These 2 pages are from the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house. It was gorgeous. I can't get enough of those stars in the windows. We can't wait for the dedication so we can go through again. :)

Manti Pageant [A little overdue...]

Text Reads: We left for the Manti Pageant around noon on Saturday, June 20th. We drove with our best friends, Brady and Danielle Sanders, and enjoyed homemade kettle corn and Kansas City BBQ chips on the way there. We arrived early enough to do a session in the Manti Temple, which was incredible. I really enjoy doing live sessions. It was nice to have some time to think and be together in the Celestial Room. When we got out of the session, we jumped in line to snag our seats for the pageant which started in about 4 hours. I used the time to plan my Relief Society lesson and went around to other people in line asking them questions. There were about 6 gates where people were lined up and our gate was the last to open! Brady grabbed his blanket and backpack and out-ran everyone else in line. We ended up on the front row, right in the middle! Since we had so much time to kill, we went to a nearby church and played card games for hours. It was pouring, and we were soaked by the time we got there. There’s an old belief that it will never rain on the pageant, and sure enough, around 8:30, the sky cleared up to a brilliant blue, just in time for the pageant.

Last Day of Spring Term!

text reads:
June 15th, 2009
Today, I had to turn in my final portfolio for my
advanced writing class at BYU. I didn’t time my day very well. The portfolio was due at 5 and I got out of class at 3, so I had 2 full hours to compile everything. Instead of getting right to work, I called Lindsay on my way home from class and talked to her for about a half-hour. When I got home, I spent time looking at blogs, talking to friends, and milling around the apartment. When it came down to it, one of my drafts wasn’t on the computer, so I had to re-type the entire thing. To top everything off, I forgot about the cover sheet that had to be turned in with it, and at 5 minutes to 5:00 printed everything off. I ran out the door and called my professor. He was just leaving his office. I ran as fast as I could up to campus. The flower fell out of my hair and I kicked my flip-flops off so I could run faster. I turned it in just as my professor was walking to the parking garage. I think it should be a rule that you can’t graduate from BYU without chasing down one of your professors.

a little more progress... :)


Last weekend, we drove up to Salt Lake for our weekly temple trip. We got there right at 3, so we had to wait for the 4 o'clock session. It was nice to just be together in the peace and quiet. I'm always amazed at how beautiful everything is. I'd never been to the Salt Lake Temple before, and I'm 100% sure we'll be back there again soon.

After the temple, we quickly switched gears and headed a few miles south to the Mae concert. We sat through at least 4 opening bands and got all mashed up in the stink of sweaty bodies, but as soon as Mae came on, everything was worth it! I've never felt so OLD though! It was weird being married at a rock concert...we left about halfway through Mae's part of the show and found the nearest Chili's for dinner. We got back to Provo just a bit after midnight, but the next morning we could barely get out of bed! Looks like our days of staying out all night and rocking out at concerts are about over. lol.

Either way-Saturday night was a BLAST!

....our little family is growing!

So. Me and Cameron went down to Arizona this weekend for my best friend Vanessa's wedding [congratulations!] and managed to get back up to Utah without squealing our news to everybody we saw while we were there.


Our family of 2 just turned into 3!

He's really really little right now, but we think he's cute as ever!

We picked him up on the side of the road on Mesa Dr. and Southern. He was the only one in the bunch who was swimming around like mad, so we both picked him [no one wants a boring turtle!] Plus, he was the prettiest green color. :)

Naming him was a whole new story...

The options were Bredder [ha!], Troy, Zach, Zac, Zak, Zack, [noticing a trend?], Max, Pig, Quattro, etc.

We finally settled on "Pato" named after our favorite hot sauce. Honestly, a can of it goes in just about every dinner we have.

When we bought him, he was living in a little plastic cup. We quickly drove to Wal-Mart and purchased a lovely big glass bowl, cute pebbles for the bottom, and a bridge for him to hide/sleep under. We also educated ourselves on the various options for turtle health care and food.

The biggest challenge was driving the 10 hours home from AZ. I tucked him nice and snug in between the driver and passenger seats. He was quite comfy too until Cameron slammed on the breaks and turtle water went everywhere, haha! [Cam was soaked, so was the ipod, but they both pulled through!]

Now our little Pato is swimming happily in his own little square of our entertainment center.

o. we love him. :)

Bring the Heat!

Things I've been meaning to blog about but haven't. :)
1. We hiked the Y at dusk the day we both finished finals and watched an episode of Lost at the top. It really doesn't get much better than that.

2. I started my internship at Gardner Village. It's freaking fantastic. My first day I was supposed to get to know the shops a little bit better, so I spent 3 hours shopping in the cutest shops ever. My family came up and my mom and I got some unrushed time up at the Village. It was a BLAST. My mom and I really are the best of friends and we don't get to see each other near often enough. [love you!]

3. My mom [funded by my dad] surprised me with a sewing machine! I've had my mom's serger for the past month to piece together this quilt I've had cut and couldn't thread the stupid thing without bursting into tears. I needed something with ONE spool of thread and ONE needle. Cameron patiently tried to fix the serger mid-meltdown, but I put the cover over it, unplugged it, and set it on the floor. The new machine was very well received. I've started piecing my quilt. Here's block #1. :)

4. Cameron has had an extremely eventful week with job interviews. He applied for a doctor's assistant position at a local chiropractor [yay!] and had his second interview today. [The first interview consisted of surveying 10 random people he found at the mall. He was the first applicant to return with the 10 surveys completed. woot!] We find out tomorrow what the verdict is. He's brilliant. :) I love it.

5. I'm on puzzle set 37 of 100 in my Sudoku book. :)

6. We're officially caught up on lost.

7. We recently brought the keyboard out of storage and into the apartment. Not that there's room for it [it's currently blocking the sliding glass door...] but Cameron plays beautifully, and it makes me wonder why we ever put it in storage in the first place.

8. We finished decorating our apartment last weekend [pictures are coming!] and decided we absolutely cannot put another picture of ourselves on the wall. Heavens. It's overwhelming, and after a while, we're just really not that good looking.

9. Spring term classes started today!

10. Cam's playing the keyboard in his G's. guess it's time for bed. lol. :)

The Final Countdown

Something I absolutely love about scrapbooking is that pictures aren't necessary all the time. If there's a story to tell, tell it!

Text Reads-
Attention: This is Cameron speaking, and it will probably be the only blog post I will ever write.

So. Finals week has taken its toll on the Call family. Our mental and emotional stability is questionable. After a long Friday of finals and studying all through the night, we awoke this morning and were on campus by 8 am. We got home tonight around 7 and were just exhausted. We realized it was April 18, the day we used to think we'd get married on............obviously, that idea didn't work out too well! (We decided to get married January 2 instead) To celebrate our almost-got-married-today anniversary, we made hamburgers with taco bell hot sauce and had a barbecue on a new grill we found on Craig's List. The dinner was fantastic. We made homemade french fries in the oven, fruit salad, and frozen lemonade in our magic bullet. It was a great relaxation meal to calm someone down during finals week at BYU.

We went on a walk to the Provo library thinking it was open till 9 only to arrive and see that it closes on 6 on Saturdays. Then, we realized we are teaching Sunday School tomorrow and needed to prepare a lesson. We got home, sat down, and began to conjure up some ideas to incorporate into our lesson on the gathering of Israel. As I sat there on the couch discussing my ideas to Kristin, I noticed she wasn't contributing as much as she normally does. While I was looking up scriptures and reading them out loud Kristin stops me mid-verse and in all seriousness asks, "Cameron, what would you do if we were being chased by an axe murderer?" I was extremely confused at her question. I looked at her waiting for an explanation, and she added, "If an axe murderer broke through the wall would you run behind me or in front of me?" I calmly ensured her that I would run behind her and fight off the axe murderer who broke through our living room wall. She then wanted to discuss other options of perhaps running side by side holding hands, jumping off the balcony and escaping in car, or running out the front door locking the axe murder inside. So, as you can tell, our Sunday School lesson was coming together very nicely.

Kristin had started to make a batch of bread while we were waiting for the hamburgers to cook. By the time the bread was finished rising and the oven was preheated we were finished with our discussion on what to do if an axe murderer breaks through our wall in the middle of the night. After placing the bread in the oven, Kristin sits down, appearing to be her normal self. We continue our lesson planning, and suddenly Kristin says, "How would you feel if we named one of our sons Bredder? Like bread, but Bredder." I was a bit shocked, and refused to even consider it (apologies if some who read this have children with that name). We laughed and I tried to keep us focused on the task of making a lesson. And then out of nowhere, Kristin asks me if I know what her favorite scene in Harry Potter is. I didn't. (Good thing they don't ask that on the newlywed game) She responded, "It's the Christmas scene. The snow is just magical!" Seriously?? I was getting so annoyed. But it was so hilarious! We had been on the couch for nearly an hour, and from my poing of view, all that was accomplished was a plan to fight off an axe murderer, crossing off a name NOT to give to a future child, and I learned something new about my wife. While I was laughing uncontrollably, Kristin began to get offended and said sarcastically she would "thunk" me on the head if I didn't stop. I couldn't respond because we were both laughing so hard and I typed on the laptop we were using that if she thunked me I wouldn't run beside her if we were being chased by an axe murderer. It was pretty funny. We both lost it. Then the beep on the oven went off to tell us bread would be done in one minute. We gained composure and listened to "The Final Countdown" by Europe. The buzzer went off, and we enjoyed a few slices of warm bread, when we finally decided there is only so much you can do during finals week. We gave up and will finish our lesson in the morning. The end. `

This Easter ended up being much MUCH better than I had anticipated. Lindsay and Mackay surprised us by coming back to Provo for the weekend. We miss them a whole bunch and it was great to have family for the holiday. We went up to Salt Lake for Mackay's family Easter party. Even the adults had an "Easter Egg Hunt" Well, sort of.

What happened was we blindfolded all the husbands and the wives lined up on the porch. Bags of candy with each couples' names on them were all over the front yard. The way it worked was the wife had to yell directions (lovingly) to their husbands who would retrieve a bag and bring it back so they could see if it was their bag. It was hilarious, and I couldn't hear myself above all those Moore women! (which is a feat...I'm pretty loud)

Here's Mackay and Cam preparing for battle. Go Team!

And we found our bag of candy. :)

Sunday we went to an amazing sacrament meeting and headed up to Salt Lake again to spend Easter dinner with Emilee, Adam and Kiara. I was SO excited to see Elisha and Baylee! (They've recently decided to like me. It's wonderful.) I also managed to finally figure out how to make my apple pie again! Adam was most pleased. :)

Making Progress. . .

I think I've let my blog suffer a little bit, but I really have been [making progress]! Here's an overview of the scrapbooking I've managed to get done in the past couple weeks.

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

A little bit of the "how to's"

A lot of you lovely ladies have been asking how to get into digital scrapbooking. I’ve tried to respond to as many of you as I could, but I figured it would just be best to post it here so you can always come back to refer to it.

*deep breath*

Here goes!

I personally use Photoshop to put my pages together. Any photo manipulation software will work, but photoshop seriously lets you do ANYTHING you want. Worth every little pretty penny it costs. (if you’re a student you can get a CRAZY discount by ordering through the bookstore)

I have a few favorite sites I use. (click on downloads) has tons of free papers/embellishments/alphabets etc. it's fantastic. :) They are also good to use when you're first starting out because they give them to you in "Collections" that help you see what goes together well. When you get more comfortable with it all, pull stuff from different collections and go crazy! :)

Another site I use for inspiration is click on gallery>digital layouts>favorites These are pages other people have filtered through and marked as their favorite. There's some AWESOME stuff there, and if you want to figure out how to do something, just ask. They're pretty good about getting back to you with what they did. also has a newsletter you can sign up for that gives you something free every week. (papers/embellishments/etc.) I have NEVER paid for anything for digital scrapbooking.

The site I use for fonts is It's fantastic. It might take you a bit to figure out how to install this on your computer, but it's worth it. :)

One other site I would mention is It has photoshop brushes with everything you can imagine and can really make some cute touches on your page.

(ex. The brown swirl on this page is a brush.)

Last site I promise!>free collage templates.
How to make super cute multi-picture layouts in pretty much no time at all. :) worth a look for sure!

The Start of Something Big

I've made a new goal.
I'm going to keep up with the scrapbooking and print out a book as an anniversary present to myself every year. This year's gonna be a doozy as it includes the wedding, (bridals, engagements, receptions, etc.) the honeymoon, and the rest of our crazy lives! but so far things are going well. :) Plus, I hate flipping through pictures on a computer and feel a huge rush when I create something I'm satisfied with. :)

Love is Remembering

Cameron knew I was giving him his valentine’s day on the 13th because I didn’t want to cramp his plans, so he brought me flowers on the 13th too and totally surprised me! Not only did he surprise me, but he came home with Gerber daisies and roses just like when he proposed to me. The next day, he told me to be ready by 4:30. When he came home, he blindfolded me (just like when we got engaged) and put me in the car. We drove for about an hour. Once we stopped, he got me out of the car, took of my blindfold and kissed me. We were at the Jordan River Temple to do sealings. I had mentioned while we were engaged that if our families weren’t all in Arizona, I would have loved to have been married in the Jordan River temple. Cameron is so sweet! He does little things for me all the time that just show me he listens to what I say, that it is important to him, and that he remembers it.
