A friend sent me this in an email today.

And just because no post is complete without a picture, here's a cute little guy I found on etsy, that will soon be added to my winter snowman collection.

Have a great day!

{Happy Thanksgiving}

The table is set, and we're just a few minutes away from a meal that smells divine.

Have a wonderful day making memories with those you love!

{Sunday}

A few layouts to share 
 (the color is really off on this one...the pink cardstock background is the same as the doilies. Another reason to not take pics on a dark dreary day)
Tucker (well, and all of 5th grade!) has loved the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series. I saw this die cut title at the Ontario Scrapbook Expo and knew I would use it someday. Little did I know that a few weeks later Borders would be having a Wimpy Kid book release party. So glad I bought it when I did!!
No school this week, so we've got lots of things planned, besides eating turkey. Some of which may or may not include scrapbooking ; )

{Banners}

Banners are all the rage right now in scrapbooking, whether it's a tiny banner added to a layout, or one made to hang as room decor. I think they are so cute!!  Here's 3 layouts, all with a fun little banner added for an embellishment. (click on the pics for a larger view!)






For the Walking with Grandpa and #1 Star Wars Fan layouts, I used a triangle punch I bought years ago. It came in quite handy for punching the banner shapes!! The other layout is made out of stickers from My Minds Eye Lost & Found collection, with Jenni Bowlin alphas for the numbers added. I Love the My Minds Eye banner stickers, but the glitter numbers don't show up very well, so adding the JB stickers remedied that!  For that last layout, I'm going to have my Dad-in-law do the journaling on a tag that pulls out from behind the picture. There's a long story that goes with the picture of his Mom from 1938. Notice she is wearing pants. Women didn't wear pants in 1938, at least not out in public, and especially not when they were getting ready to play their guitar at a dance.  I never got to meet my Dad-in-law's Mom (my hubby's Grandma) but I sure would have loved to.  Everytime I hear a story about her I always think of the quote "Well behaved women rarely make history"  Yep, I would have loved to have known her! wink wink
Happy weekend ya'all!

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

It's amazing how something so little can change your life so much. From the little pink shoes in your closet, to baby dolls scattered all over the house. Hugs that last forever and "i lub you mommy".
Dancing in the rain in nothing but a tu-tu, and wanting your toes painted pink just like mine. Hiding behind a chair to surprise Daddy when you hear him coming in the door from work, and eating peanut butter from a spoon.
Being scared of anything that flies, and wanting to smell every flower on an afternoon walk. Loving your brothers, but not understanding why they can't be here all the time with you, and loving to color and finger paint. Insisting on carrying a purse, and loving your Dora pajamas the best. Having your own special name for Grandpa, and how you stop and smile as soon as you see the camera.
It's amazing how something so little can change your life so much.
Happy 2nd Birthday Sweet Girl!

{Wednesday}

Halloween was the perfect evening for Cinderella and Harry Potter. Harry collected candy in a pumpkin and Cinderella wanted to carry a purse. I took so many pics that night, but this was one of my faves.
