Not a creature was stirring...not even a mouse!

My sweet grand niece was just the perfect age for Halloween and Christmas this year!  Her Minnie Mouse costume was perfect since she had just been to Disney!  I used this week's Nuts About Sketches sketch.
I didn't glue down the date tab as I'm not sure if I will keep it.  The color seems a bit off for this page.

Oh Christmas Tree!

It was so much fun to watch Chandler look at and feel his first Christmas tree.  You could see his eyes sparkle, and the little wheels turning as he tried to figure it out.  I used this week's NAS sketch

Secret Stocking Stuffer Swap on Cricut board

I participated in a secret stocking stuffer swap over on the cricut circle message board.  Today is the day we open our boxes which I did before I came to work this morning.  It turns out "Irish Dancer" (message board name), had my name this year.  She was very creative with her homemade items which included an altered composition book, a small notebook, and two fancy decorations (that I have plans to use on a layout).  From my wish list, she bought the cricut cartridge, Wild Card II, a set of Pink Stamper punny stamps, and a white gel pen.  You will notice all the items are laying on a piece of green canvas...oh yeah, my mind is going crazy with all the ideas that I can use that for!!  I feel so blessed for her to have had my name!!!!!!

A Teddy Bear Party

Heather and Chandler belong to the Kernersville Mommy & Me group.  Heather decided to host a party for the moms, tots, and their teddy bears.  Some children brought a different stuffed animal.  They ate teddy grahams, honeycomb cereal, gummi bears etc., read a story about a teddy bear, and even made a necklace out of cheerios for their bears.  It was hard getting a group picture since one little girl kept crawling off, and others looked away!  I made bag toppers using teddy bears cut from the Create a Critter cartridge and Heather put teddy grahams in them for the children to take home.  I used a NAS sketch

My Seven Springs Girls

Last March I started scrapping with the most incredible group of ladies that I like to call my "Seven Springs Girls" because that's the name of the little town we meet in.  We met this past Saturday and had such a fun time.  They all have different styles, and it is interesting to see what all they are working on.  Here are a couple of projects we all made together.

Hanging out with Grandma!

This week's NAS sketch was so much fun.  I like using two pictures with different orientation.

I used two pictures of my sweet grandson and his other grandma which is also my good friend, Ann!
