Blocks and blogs!

Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying your sunday night! Its getting a little chilly here is Las Vegas (we think anything below 50 degrees is chilly :] ) but I am loving the feeling of the holidays! I cannot wait to decorate my house! And speaking of houses, thanks for all the well wished comments on our search for our new home! We put in an offer yesterday on a property we lovve so cross your fingers and toes!
ANYWAAAYY... I teased you guys with a picture of a project that I was working on and its finally done! Was super easy to do and didnt take long at all! I got the idea from Karlee just with my own touch!

 So I got the plastic blocks from Target in the dollar bin and they are 3 1/2" by 3 1/2". As you can see I did different themes and just cut the squares to fit. The second layer is 1/4" smaller. I think they came out great!

Besides that I have been busy making cards and some LO's that are super cute! Ill share some pictures tomorrow! annnnddd I was nominated for a sylish blog award!!
