December is such a busy month

Well, I don't know about everyone else, but I think we need more hours in the day for December.  I can't seem to get everything I want or need to get done.  Here's a couple photo's from my December so far, starting with my sweet nephew Santa Shane, followed by Daisy Dog and my Christmas Tree, The last two are of my dd with her cousins Tommy and Devin when we walked down Christmas Tree Lane.

Here's a couple projects I have thrown together as well that were inspired by a challenge at sketches4all:

Layouts for Scrapdango

Hey Everyone, it's been a short while since I posted, my family and I are preparing to go out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday but I was able to get a couple layouts posted for the blog hop that's been going on over at Scrapdango.

Here's a couple layouts I did based on the some of the facts and fave products of the design team over at Scrapdango. 
The top layout of my dd at her 6th grade promotion, this is based on Audra's favorite color pink and here 2nd favorite hobby of reading.  I used some of her favorite supplies including patterned paper, thickers, tiny alphas, twine brads, and stick pins.

This second layout of my dd Christmas 2004 was inspired by Heather's facts of her favorite number being 4 and Christmas being her favorite time of year.  The supplies I used were little letter stickers, thickers, stars, buttons, and a sketch from sketches for all.

I need everyone who stops by to help on this one if they don't mind....

My super crafty scrappin buddy and sister in law needs our help, she's trying to make the GDT for Cosmo Cricket, it's really easy to help out, you can only vote once from each computer and I'll even make it easier, just copy and paste  "My vote is for Audra Wright, she's the one you want."  over in the comment section of this Cosmo Cricket link.  Thank you so, so, much, now off to the Fair with the family for a day of fun and fatty foods.  Happy Scrappin and thanks so so so much.

Got another layout done for sketches4all so I'll share that with you first, I love this picture of my daughter at Morro Bay a few years back.

On another note, today is exactly one year since we lost grandpa so today I headed to the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Santa Nella, Ca with Uncle Randy, Aunt Lisa, Grandma, Michelle and my mom. I'll share a couple pics, it was a nice trip for a little drive.

Thanks for looking, Happy Scrappin and Have a good week.

Just an update and a few pics as life in general has pulled me away from blogging......

Well, it's been super busy in our house, hubby celebrated his 33rd birthday and we celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary, I was so super surprised to get a new camera a couple days before our anniversary and then on our anniversary I got a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to work and if you knew my hubby, that's WAY out of the norm but while all the celebrating was going on I have gotten to get a couple things done,  some for sketches4all and then another one that was inspired by somewhere but I can't for the life of me remember where.  So there's your update, here's a couple pics and my layouts, thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrappin!!

So hurry on over, oh and I almost forgot if your new to scrapbook challenges, let them know, I believe you can win something for that too. Have fun and get hoppin....
