It's the 1st

Wow! I can't believe December is already here!! Time is a flying and I'm trying to get as much done before Christmas...actually before our vacation on the 15th. I was going to make Disney autograph books for the kids, but now I've decided to just take some note paper to get the autographs. Then when I come home I can tear out the note paper and pair it up with the photo in a book. Whew! I can cross that off my to-do list for now

I've got a sneak peek for ya. It's December's Solo and Medley kits from Back Porch Memories along with the stamps. Holy moly, these stamps are FABULOUS!!

And then being it's the first, I get to show you my early layout...can I just tell you I find the Basic Grey Urban Prairie to be utterly scrumptious!!

This layout is of my Marisa when she was just a year old...a bit of a weepy feeling came over me when I pulled these pictures to scrap. I wanted to capture and remember every memory of my children being infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. But when I look at old pictures like this, I think that time has gone way too fast and I can't remember much of when they were younger. It's a shame I didn't scrap much, but it was all new and I just didn't make it a priority. I wish I would have written more stuff down so I could remember, but I didn't. At least, thank goodness, I have the pictures to bring back those good thoughts and warm fuzzies of my kiddos when they were sweet little babes. Okay. Enough of this sappiness and on to the layout

If you're looking for a few good challenges this month, check out BPM's forum and play along for a chance to win a fabulous prize pack given by our awesome Paula. My challenge is to create a layout using a trendy animal on it. You know -- an owl, bird, deer, hedgehog, etc -- whatever floats your boat. It can be cut out of paper, stamped, a die cut, or even a rub on. Here's my example for the challenge. Gotta love that new Quickutz cute!

Now I must go and start my day of errand running -- bills, return movies, grocery know, all the fun stuff
Have a TERRIFIC day!!
