Have you seen the GORGEOUS kits that Martha has put together for December!!!??? Check these kits out.....

Here is Merry January. PERFECT for you Northerners!!!! Down here in Texas, we don't get much snow...our snowmen consist of twigs and leaves! LOL...But up there, y'all get a plethora of snow! This is perfect for all those snowmen photos! I know DT Member Michelle is super excited to be getting this kit along with Seppa and Tanya. I can't WAIT to see what they do with it!

Here is "Everybody Loves Christmas"...and don't you just love it! The bright colors and whimsical prints on this paper just make me all giddy inside! I can just imagine the fun layouts and projects that can be made using this kit! Oh...and i am SOOOO in love with the little mittens and hot chocolate embellies! **ADORABLE!**
I am excited to see what Martha, Kris, and Taj do with it...those ladies all have a way with color...they are certain to ROCK this kit!!

And finally, "I Believe". Yes...I DO believe! I believe in the magic of Christmas, I believe that Santa is REAL in a toddler's heart, and I believe that this kit is GORGEOUS! I will have the pleasure of designing with this kit this month along with Jenny and Ly...YAY!

We had a day filled with good food, family, and a very very sick little girl. Poor Aubrie puked from the time she woke up till about 11 pm last night. There has been some sort of "bug" going around that she just happened to catch on the most inopportune day of the year! I am thankful that I didn't have her to the ER for dehydration! Finally...about 9 pm she was able to hold water down without puking it right back up.

Now on to Christmas....want to see one of the photos I want to scrap this year???? It is Skye from last Christmas. I took this in front of Joe's uncle's Christmas tree...and I absolutely love this shot! I never got around to scrapping it last year...so this year...it is the first on my list! LOL

Do you have photos that you never got around to scrapping? Pull them out and make it the very next one you scrap! I dare ya! LOL. Have a fabulous day!!!!

My Little Elves

Here is a layout featuring my 3 sons. They actually LET ME PHOTOGRAPH them in the Santa Hat!!!! I was amazed at their cooperativeness!

Here is Tranquility...done using the November Kit from Scrapbook Daisies. This is a photo of Skye holding some balloons overlooking the waves in the ocean. Not only does she look so calm and peaceful...but I get a calming sensation roll over me when I look at this photo. It was a good day. A day of peace and tranquility. A day with family, love, and togetherness.
I handmade all of my flowers, sprayed frost and lilac mists on the papers to give a feel of the ocean, and I inked the edge of the photo with turquoise. I think this was my favorite of all...maybe the colors, maybe the photo...I don't know...but I am very please with how it turned out. Thanks for looking!

So, it is November...the leaves are most assuredly turning colors, the air is getting just a bit nippier and the absence of mosquitoes here in my back yard is a SURE sign that autumn is here. THIS is my most favorite time of the year. The time when "family" is not just a word that we use as an excuse for why we associate with questionable people...but an actual feeling that moves over us in waves of appreciation for those whom we love. We FELL it. We KNOW it. We BELONG to someone.
It is a time when "thankfulness" is not just some random word used in a lesson plan at school...but an actual emotion that we experience when we reflect on our daily gifts from God.

And a time that "Blessings" are not just what we offer when someone next to us sneezes...they are rather the untouchable things that we count and enumerate when we are siting at the Thanksgiving table...surrounded with our family...silently thanking God for everything he has blessed us with.

I LOVE AUTUMN...and everything that comes with it. The words, the lessons, the feelings, the sights...sounds...smells...and of course...I can not forget the tastes. YUM. Pumpkin Pie....a little slice of heaven!

So...for November...I am going to post my daily "Thankfulness"...well...I will aim for daily..it may just well be bi weekly for all I know! lol.

and...TODAY...I am thankful for this right here:

Yes..it is last year's photograph...but my family just the same. I will start my Thankfulness chronicles with the thing I am MOST thankful for...my Family.

What are you thankful for? Leave me a comment and tell me. I would love to know!
