Scrapin' The Night Away

This past weekend I went to a scrapbooking overnighter. I had a blast with my roomies, got a lot done, and stayed up way to late (4:30am to be exact). I mainly worked on cards. I used my scraps I had leftover from other projects and accents I have had hanging around for awhile. I made a dent in my supply stash, but I still have a ton more. I guess I'll be making more cards! Here are a few I made while I was there. Sorry about the sideways ones. Hubby will have to help me fix that.

Tu Tu

Yesterday I ventured into the fabric store and bought some tulle to make a tutu for my daughters Halloween costume. There wasn't much to choose from. I guess it's a poplur thing to make this time of year. It was very easy and took maybe an hour to do. I found instructions on youtube here.

You'll need:
4 yard of tulle (or more depending on how big the person you're making it for is)
3 yard ribbon (they suggest satin, I used grograin because that's what I had)

Here is the finished product. My daugther refuses to put it on, so no model for the picture, hopefully by Halloween she'll change her mind.
Note: I used the sparkley tulle. It leaves glitter everywhere! Although it looks so cute, be aware you'll shine for awhile along with your kids and husband.

I found this recipe on a website called Simply Supper. I love it. Josh thinks it's okay. The kids like the meatballs. It's so easy and something you can put together and have cook in a few hours.
Meatballs & Rice

1 can of Cranberry Sauce
Mix cranberry sauce and salsa with a wire whisk. Pour sauce in a slow cooker. Add frozen meatballs. Cook on low 4-5 hours, or high 2-3 hours. Spoon meatballs and sauce over rice.
