Finally some new LOs

No scrapping this week.  Literally.  I'm in shock.  But I've gotten 2 done today and 1 yesterday.

The first one, my December Desktop was created using Lliella Designs's Re-released kit, Fancy Schmancy Christmas.  This is my favorite kit from last Christmas.


The next LO was created using Christmas Time by Claudi Designs


And finally, a LO of precious little Miss G, using Everyday Princess by Donna Duncombe Designs.


Be sure to stop by my family blog for photos from our trip to Sea World and my family decorating our tree.  Blessings!

Holiday Gifts & Cards

I have had little computer time this week.  In fact, I have not been home much, and when I have been at home, I've been working on gifts, Christmas cards, Jamie's wedding video, or helping out friends.  Thankful, today is a very easy day for me.  Cayden will be taking a nap shortly, and I will once again be in the office finishing up the wedding video.  I must say that it is a pretty awesome video - and much of last night was spent in tears from either being overwhelmed with emotion (watching the bride dance with mom and dad) or from laughter (watching the bride's pure country brothers dance to Lolli Lolli and Yeah, Yeah, Yeah."  HILARIOUS!!!

So, next week is Thanksgiving, and the kids will be giving their teachers and principal a small gift.  We found these baskets, candles, and scarecrows on sale at 80% off at Hobby Lobby so I grabbed them.  Add some homemade pumpkin bread next week, and the gifts will be complete.


Tomorrow is the Christmas Card Shoebox Swap.  I created (okay modified)two cards for this event (one for me and one for mom).  I think they are soooo cute.

And lastly, Brandi's birthday is tomorrow so I went ahead and made her this blanket (thanks to Traci's expertise from 4 years ago, this has been a pretty standard gift in my book).


So although I have been working on a couple of Digital Christmas gifts, I cannot share them here due to spoiling the element of surprise, but I can share everything else I've been doing.

I'm also going to be making these two desserts for our class Thanksgiving Feast of Desserts.  Found them in on the Family Fun website. 

Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats


Sweet Turkey Treats (not that's not my child)


And we'll be completing this art project during the party (I will be gluing the pompom part on this weekend).

New LOs

I have been so busy lately with actual "life" that I haven't had much time to scrap.  I'm working on my dear friend, Jamie's, wedding video.  It is taking quite a bit of time to edit, but I think it's going to be a wonderful memory that I was able to help preserve.  I love the editing software I am using.  It's pretty amazing.  But here I sit, bleary eyed, trying to get this post made. 

Don't get me wrong, I have been able to get some scrapping done, but outside of that, I've been doing lots around the house (did I mention I cleaned it a million times this week and you still can't tell).  I also made a Baby Shower gift for my dear friend, Molly, made a couple cards, and played with my kids, not to mention kept a girlfriend's little girl so she could get some Christmas shopping taken care of and volunteered up at Hannah's school. 

Thursday I did stay home from work with Cayden since he came down with croup again.  Poor baby boy.  He's been pretty miserable, and his cough is sounding worse (without the barking), but the pediatrician's nurse told me to just keep doing what we're doing and if he's still bad on Monday to call and bring him into the office.  We'll see what happens.

Okay, onto the LOs:

Ready for some Pumpkin LOs?

All LOs are clickable.


First, my November Desktop



Next two LOs are using the same 2 photos different.  Hmmmm. . . . wonder if I did these while on pain medication.



And look at this adorable little spider!
