Family Outing & New Asian Cuttlebug Folders

Tonight we went on a family outing to downtown Salt Lake City. It was COOOOOOLLLLLDDD! But so much fun!

We went to see the lights on Temple Square, took a carriage ride around the city and then had dinner at the Little America Hotel. The girls loved walking around the hotel afterwards looking at all the "fancy" architectural details. Jensyn said to me, "I want a house just like this when I grow up." Fun times!

Kevin trying to get the kids to smile with a "Saaaayyyy PONIES!!!" Hmmmm. Do I detect an eyeroll from Owen?! LOL!

Oh, yes. Classic Maryn with the tongue out. :) Matches the spiritual feeling of the photo with the floating lights on the pond in front of the temple, don't ya think?

Owen sort of reminds me of a turtle barely peeking out of his scarf-shell all night long. Hee hee!

Cam was so relaxed by the sound of the trotting horse, that she actually dozed off towards the end of the carriage ride.

Did you see the new Asian Cuttlebug folders that will be coming out at CHA?!!! They are soooo pretty! Love the patterns and I LOVE that they are doing the larger 5 X 7 size! Here is a picture . . . but be sure to check out the Cuttlebug Challenge blog for additional photos by Maggie Lamarre where she posts actual samples of cardstock embossed with this new set . . . GORGEOUS!!! I especially love the patterns!

*****ETA: I thought I would let you know that if you are interested in these you can buy the Asian Folders right now on the Cricut site HERE.*****

That's it for tonight! I've been scrapping, but they are things I need to keep HUSH! HUSH! until CHA so I'm unable to show you yet. ;) Let's just say . . . you are going to GO CRAZY over the new Bella Blvd. WOWSERS!!!! ;) (Hehehehe! What a tease I am!)
