Before you were Born

I've had a stack of pictures sitting on my stamp desk for a long time now. When I scrap I have no rhyme or reason to my pages. I don't like to do theme books, focus on one child at a time, or go in chronological order. One time I might grab Christmas photos from a year ago...the next time it might be these from my Son's first days...almost EIGHT years ago.

As I look through my albums, I've noticed that there are many more pages dedicated to my daughters or a combo of all, but there are not many of just Gavin. He's noticed too, so I may have to make up for some lost time!!! So out of fairness, I created this two page layout.

I used Becky Higgins new sketch book. I still haven't had a chance to look at everything in there yet, but what I have....I LOVE!!! I always mention to people that I have a hard time NOT stamping on scrapbook pages, but here I did not bring out one stamp. I did use Whisper White Craft ink (aka Pine white), so that counts right? The letters were cut using the Cricut font Opposites Attract. I was unable to complete the journaling at this time because my printer is on the fritz!! As soon as it starts being nice the white box will have

I dreamed of you, I imagined you, I prayed for you. Now that you're here: I hope for you, I love you and I thank God for you.

Well it's about time to start the school pick up runs!! I hope everyone has a fantastic day and weekend!! Thanks for looking!!!

Are these not the cutest little images!!! I am in love!!! I usually don't go for small images. I like my main focus to take up a lot of space on a card, but I could not resist Elzybells!!

For this card I used my Spellbinder Nestabilities purchased from Ellen. I love love love the Nesties!!! She is stamped on Shimmery White, and colored her with Copics. My next purchase is going to be the Spica Glitter pens. For this one I just highlighted some areas with my Sakura Stardust pen. Designer paper is from last years SU! Holiday Mini. I believe it is called Holiday Thyme.

It's starting to feel like winter here!! 23* F as I type!! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!! Stay warm!

It is already starting!!

Neighbors are putting Christmas decorations out!! I am not there yet!! Don't we still have a major holiday to get through first?!?! That got me thinking. Thanksgiving dinner is always a great family get together. Our table is always decorated with some sort of festive holiday arrangement. I love the colors of fall...dislike the cold that comes along with it...but love the colors.

I threw together these cute little tins for a recent craft show. Wouldn't these be adorable as place settings around the Thanksgiving table??!! A little name tag could be added. Maybe use the SU! Word Window punch.

The tins are showing up all over the place now. I purchased these from Nichole's store, but Starlitstudio is also carrying them. The brown satin ribbon was also purchased from Cindy at Starlitstudio.

Let's all give thanks this year!! Good family, good time, good friends, and good food.
