Christmas is coming….

…much faster than you think!  I spent most of my Saturday shopping in the mall with my two oldest Grand children and my mother.  I know now what it truely means to be “Older”.  My grand kids could pull an all day shopping spree with mo problem, but I found myself getting slower and slower as the day went on.  My poor mother was doing all she could to just keep up!  I was so glad to get home with all of my Christmas goodies and then realized that I had to wrap them all!  All of this for 5 minutes of Christmas morning bliss!  We are all certifiably CRAZY!!!

After all of that, I spent another three hours in Walmart today finishing up!  I am officially finished with all of my Christmas Shopping. I am also proud to say that my two Grand Children are completely finished with theirs as well.  It took me about 6 weeks to get finished…they started and finished in two days!

That being said, here are a few layouts that I managed to get completed this week.





Happy December!

I’m back and I have updated this blog with a Christmas Theme.  The kit I used is “Fa La La” by Blue Heart Scraps!

With the on set of December and the Christmas Season, i have decided to try the 365/52 Challenge that is on going over at GingerScraps.  (If you haven’t checked out all of the monthly challenges there, you really should!  There is something for everyone!

Anyway.  Here is my first weekly layout for that challenge.  Created for the week of November 23 – 29.  I have use a very simple template created by JB Studios and “Plan on it” by Connie Prince.  Both are available at GingerScraps.


There will be more to come, so keep checking back on my progress. A few words of encouragement from time to time would also help a lot!  (hint).
