11/14 Experience FOUR seasons in less than a week!

Can you believe it? I arrived on Friday in western NY to a beautiful FALL day. So I took advantage of it and played in the leaves! My favorite season is Fall, so I was thrilled!

Then I woke up Monday morning to SNOW! I had not seen snow in 15 years and it was fun BUT only for a day! Here I am cleaning off the car - hey at least I got to wear the season's hottest fashion trend - a scarf!

Wednesday looked just like Spring - snow along the side of the road and green grass peeking through - remember? I left Buffalo, NY on Thursday and it was a cold, dark and rainy day. Yuk- this is the November I remember!

Back home to Tampa - a beautiful sunny, warm day - 80 degrees. Yeah - it's good to be back home!

11/05 It's time for the next holiday!

The end of the year has so many holiday opportunities to take pictures and create cards and pages. My first event of this Holiday season is my Scrapbook Club on November 14th at 6:30. We will be using CTMH's paper pack called Evensong for the page layout. I am so excited to say that I am finished with my 2007 Christmas photos before this Christmas holiday arrives!

This two page layout is from the Cherish book:

Can join us for an evening of fun and frivolity!

11/02 Last Halloween layout

I am a lucky girl! I have many "adopted" grandchildren! The mom on the right is a former student of mine and I taught her how to sew! She made her children's costume and I was very proud of her for being so creative! Emma and Logan are BamBam and Pebbles and Rachel dyed Emma's hair red to complete the outfit! Addison is my most recent grandchild and she is now living in Buffalo with her mom and dad's family. Her Florida grandma - ME! - will get to see her next week! I can't wait!

Only the solid paper is CTMH - the rest is from Target $$ Spot!!! Coming soon - Christmas cards and layouts. Stay tuned......
