It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Happy December everyone!

Christmas is approaching fast isn't it?  I have started Christmas shopping but have oh so much more to do! Hoping to get our Christmas tree and decorations up today.

I have been pulling out old Christmas photos and scrapping them.  It has been so much fun and has really got me in the mood for the holidays.  Found this one last night and started a new Christmas layout. This pic just make me smile. :)

Speaking of L, I created a different layout about her sense of humor earlier this week for the Challenge Me Happy Blog.  Annelie gave us a wonderful layout she created as our inspiration for this challenge. 

Make sure to stop by the CMH blog to see her inspiration photo and check out the details for the new challenge. The winner will get to be our next Guest Designer.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Happy Friday everyone!

It is has been such a busy week,.  My sweet girls have decided that they wanted to raise money for Compassion.  After we discussed their options they decided they wanted to make and sell fleece blankets and donate the profits.  I am very proud of them but it has created more work for me than I had expected.  Each blanket needs to be cut before they can start tying them.

L had another gymnastics meet this last weekend. I really enjoy watching these meets but this one was even more fun than usual.  While talking to a friend in Bloomington we found out that L was going to be competing against her old gym. :)  Two of her closest friends and their families were there. :)  Then as we are chatting before the meet I hear a loud exclamation and look up to see DH talking to a sweet friend of ours from Carmel.  We used to usher with her and her husband her daughter went to L's gym before we moved to Bloomington. It was so much fun to spend time with all of these dear sweet friends of ours.

A few weeks ago I posted some pictures from our fall photo shoot.  While I was taking pictures I got some great ones of my DH with the girls.  They were acting all goofy as I snapped pictures.  Once I started looking at them closer I realized how much he looked like he was imitating Superman.  From there the layout just took a life of it's own.  :) It was the perfect title, he really is such an amazing husband and dad. :)

You can find the photo that inspired the layout along with the supply list on the Emma's Paperie blog.

Thank you so much for taking time to stop by my blog today.

For My Sister

I come from a family of five. I am the oldest and I have one sister and one brother.  

Personally I like this picture better. Haha

My brother is in the army just ending being stationed all the way in Hawaii.  He will officially be back in the states this month.  My sister lives in our hometown in Wisconsin. She has always been the the relational one.  She is still very close to two of her friends from elementary school, not to mention keeping in touch with numerous others.  She is the one that calls and texts often, makes sure everyone remembers birthdays and anniversaries.  She is also the one that is constantly admiring my work and asking me to make cards and gift boxes for her friends.  And that makes me feel good about my work.  I am lucky to have her. :)

Recently a friend of hers had surgery and a group of her friends decided to put together a gift basket.  After receiving a gift box from me for her birthday, my sister asked me if I could make one for her to give to her friend.  I created two gift bags, one for her and one for a friend of mine for her birthday.  

You can find the supply list on the Emma's Paperie blog right here.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!!!
