Happy Thanksgiving...

I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope your day was blessed and full of great family times and good food. We had a fun day playing games with the kids watched a couple movies and cooked and cooked. Today I am thankful for my husband, kids, family and friends, I am thankful that we have a roof over our heads and everyone is healthy for the most part. What are you thankful for?

With December only a few more days away I wanted to show a couple little peeks of some projects I have been working on with the December Dixie Pieces kit.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

It's a rainy Tuesday...

It's a rainy Tuesday here in Washington or at least where I am. lol As promised here is a layout and a couple cards that I did over the weekend with the December kits at The Scrapping Spot.

The first one was done with the December Harmonie kit. We change our Christmas tree ornaments every year and I love to document our tree each year. I really love this kit. The papers are great for those "Traditional" pages.

Here are two cards that were done with the December Prudence kit. I just love the colors and all the extras in this kit.
One great thing about these kits is they work really well together. So you can mix and match all the goodies etc.

I hope your weather is better then the weather we are having and if you have snow enjoy it. hehe

thanks for looking

In the Christmas spirit???

So are you in the Christmas spirit yet? Yes I know Thanksgiving isn't here yet but there are only a few weeks left for Christmas shopping.. hehe I have started going through my Christmas ornaments from last year and remembered I took a few photos of my favorite ones. So dug out those photos and just had to sit down and scrap and I have the most amazing kit that I got in the mail on Monday that was perfect for it. So I sat down and did my thing and I'm so happy that I did because I just love the way the layout turned out. It's a 6x12 layout for my All about me album. (you can click the photo for a larger view)

I just love all these amazing Christmas themed kits in November. It sure helps you get started on mini albums or creating layouts from last years photos and cards for this year.

If you like what you see you can grab this kit at A Kiss on the Chic

Isn't it gorgeous... I just love it. She has a few other kits that you may also enjoy. Her Thanksgiving inspired kit is just amazing as well.
