Countdown to Christmas!

Well, I'm off to shop today and hopefully get everything on my list completed. I will then be spending the next few days baking ... ha ... like everyone else! Here is my latest layout from Mouse Scrappers current Template Challenge. I'm really missing Disney World at Christmas since I haven't been for a few years so I used some pictures from our 2008 trip. This parade is at the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party that we absolutely loved!

I used "Dear Santa" by Lliella Designs & Kaye Winiecki, "A Very Mickey Christmas" & "That Covers It" from Kellybell Designs (P.S. check out Kellybell Designs for another great sale she is having ... 50% off some of her digital products).

Gotta run ... thanks for dropping by!

Speed Scrap!!

With this Speed Scrap at Mouse Scrappers I knew I wanted to use the new kit I bought "Wicked Apples" at Designs by Lisa Minor. I combined it with "Fairest in the Land" by Kellybell Designs.

Curt and I saw the best topiaries this year at Disney World during their Flower and Garden Festival. I have to say that one of my favorite scenes was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I've always been partial to Snow White since this is one of my mom's favorite movies ... she loves Dopey and I do too! Anyway, here is the layout I made for this Speed Scrap.

Have a wonderful week!!

Cookie Exchange!

We had our 2nd annual cookie exchange at Robyn's tonight and as a thank you for holding it at her house each time I made her a Cookie Exchange Recipe Mini Album. I saw this idea on Cardz TV and adapted it to my needs.

Can't wait for a night of laughs, eating and fellowship with some wonderful ladies!

Thanks Robyn. :)

Good Monday Laugh ...

My sister-in-law bought the cutest sign for me when she visited Gruene lately.

I've seen the t-shirts with the hobby of golfing and hunting for the husband and the wife was second choice. Well, this is the first I've seen where it is reversed AND it is for scrapbooking!

Now, I have got to say that I am married to the bestest guy in the world! Yea, he's more better than scrapbooking, but even he got a huge kick out of the sign.

While it is hanging in my scrap room he still knows he ranks higher since it is only him that I ask how a certain layout looks and he usually has great feedback and ideas!

Like I said ... he's the most bestest AWESOME man ... but this sign is stinkin' cute, right?
