Gift Card Class

My first class went really well and now I'm all set for my next one in December. This time it's for all those gift cards you give at Christmas. It gets kind of boring giving them in cards or their little envelopes. So, hey, why don't you make these little cuties to put them in!

My Maya Road Entry

Okay. I got the go ahead from Ms. Laura who knows Carolyn from Maya Road. She says I can post the pictures. Not that I was keeping them from you all because I thought I had a chance, I just some times miss the "fine print" as my dear friend Cheri knows and I didn't want to exclude myself after all my hard work...lol
Without further ado, here is my little holiday villa and mini album :D Thanks for peeking!

November BPM projects

Here's my layouts made with Back Porch Memories Medley kit -- fun stuff!

This one by far is my FAVORITE! I loved these pics I took of Travis the day he got his braces off. What a good looking young man he is! This layout was made with the Becky Fleck monthly sketch at BPM along with the Granola line.

This layout is of my mom and grandma with Marisa. Just recently we met my mom, aunts, great aunt, cousin, and Grandma Charlotte at a restaurant to celebrate her 79th birthday. We don't get together often like that, so it's always fun and such a good time seeing my relatives. They adored Marisa and she them.

and lastly I have a little card I made with the Pink Paislee.

I have so many papers left to create with. I just need to find the time and energy.
Thanks for peeking!

The sick bugs....

have struck our home again!! This is the main reason I can't stand this season -- well, I should say fall and winter -- blech! If there is a bug to be caught, someone in my family will catch it. Thankfully it's never been anything drastic or life threatening, but nonetheless it's one that puts one or many of us down.

Collin is now sick with another sinus infection that has traveled to his chest. Yes, he has a lovely cough! Marisa has now contracted a viral infection that has her lying in bed with a 102.3 fever that I can't seem to get to go down no matter how much motrin/tylenol I give her. She is complaining of a sore throat and stomach pains....poor kid! Dave has a nasty sinus/chest infection. Lots of yuckies with his coughing...blech!

So with all of this circulating, Trav and I are mananging to ward off the sick bugs and hopefully it stays that way!

I've been busy creating. I actually finished a Maya Road house for their "Home for the Holidays" contest. I didn't think I would pull it off because I always start something with good intentions and then run out of time... so for just finishing it I am proud! I don't know if you can post the pics of it so I'll hold off for now, but promise I'll come back with them by next Sunday.

Early layout

for Back Porch Memories November kit...woohoo! The papers are soooo pretty! I love the Medley kit for all of it's different paper selections. This one is using the Pink Paisley Pop Fashion and other goodies from the kit ;)

I have not been catching the right light lately for my pics. I miss the summer sun
