I had a great time chatting with friends at Letsscrapdivas.ning.com last night and was going to go to bed when I got done... but then I saw this challenge and decided to do it. Here is what I came up with: Here is the sketch that we copied:
Card stock by DCWV Stickers by Jolee Patterned paper (The cut out words) by K and Comp. and will have to check the company that made the rub ons... I can't remember. lol!
Well I have been so busy with family, crafting and shopping that I have not posted anything on here. Well I will fix that tonight. I am planning on posting all the great creations I have done this last week and some photos of what were have been up to! I will update later tonight. Check back tomorrow!
There are so many things to be grateful for this year. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I cannot help but think of all the things that have happened this year in our lives and in the world. Just to have another day with my family is enough for me. There are so many thing in the world that we cannot rely on. But I know that I can rely on God and my family. Even if we don't have the extra money to go out and see a movie or eat. We still have each other and I am grateful. I am also grateful that we still have jobs. With so many companies closing around here, it is getting scary. Every week we still have a job to go to, I am thankful. My prayer is that this recession will cause all of us to take a hard look at our lives and just be grateful for what we have!! We are blessed!!
Well my middle son has been driving for a few weeks now. I still have anxieties about it and I know that my heartburn is because of it. I don't know if it will get any easier!! I did a LO of the day that he took his girlfriend to Homecoming. It was the first time they drove by themselves. They looked so grown up!!
We usually have a book that we write in every Thanksgiving. We list what we are grateful for and what we have done in the past year to help others. This year I decided to make the book. I usually just buy a notebook, but there was a challenge in CafeMom to make a gratitude item and I chose this.
Here is the Mini Lo that I did as a challenge in Let's Scrap Divas. I had a blast getting this done. I liked the fact that it was not your usual LO. I then added it to a 12 x 12 LO!! It worked really well!!
So I was able to sit down and get two layouts done last night. These are photos from 2001. So much has changed since then. GG Poppa is gone now and all the Great Great Grandkids are years older, not to mention there are many more of them now. Seems like just yesterday we were there loving on GG Poppa. We Miss you!!!!
Here is a layout of my mom's childhood home, school and grocery store.
Hope to get the rest of the LO's done this month!!
Well it is Monday and that mean a new week. Can you believe how close to Christmas we are? My plan is to be done with Christmas gifts for extended family by Thanksgiving. Then I will focus on the boys and Rob.
There are many things going on this week too. Madison has his first soccer game. He is so excited to be goalie for FSUS and I am so excited for him too. He just loves soccer and so does Rob. That is one of many things they have in common.
Rob has a full week at work. I love him so much and am very proud of all he does for our family. He is a great provider and protector. (Even though he sometimes does not think so.) He is everything I need.
There are so many things to plan in the next few weeks. We usually travel at some point during the holiday season, but I think we might stay home this year. Just need to save the money. We will see for sure.
Well here is to another week in 2008. (Not many of them left!)
Here is a LO from the Pumpkin patch this year. The letters on the LO were from a word swap on Cafe mom. I used my Cricut to cut out the other letters.
The pumpkin stickers are from Jolee and the patterned paper was not labled. The cardstock is by DCVW. I just love their products. The photos were printed on my HP personal photo printer that I just love. The best investment ever!!
Well I finally was able to sit down last night and make a double 12 x 12 LO! Here it is. These are photos from 2001. I am trying to get them done by the end of the year. Still have a lot to do, so not sure I will be able to do it. But I am going to try!!
Rob and I were able to attend the 800th episode of Monday Night RAW. It was in Tampa at the St. Pete Times Forum. We were invited by Rob's old manager. We had seats in the company's sky box. It was soooo cool. Rob had a great time. He just loves Wrestling. I am not that much of a fan, but had a great time.
Well this is what we woke up to this morning. The big oak tree just gave up and rested on the ground. It is sad. He was so old and now has to be removed. We were lucky that all he did was knock down the power line. Missed the car and van by a foot. It was amazing to say the least. We really enjoyed his shade! The yard will be lonely with out him!! I am sad!!
Well me and My hubby celebrated our 1st anniversary on 10-20 and we decided to have a party to celebrate with friends. But it was not your ordinary party. We had a hat party. We offered prizes for the best hats and there were some awesome hats. Here are a few of them. It was amazing how creative people were.
