11/30 CTMH SOTM December Blog Hop

Here's to Love!!! in December....
If you have been hopping with everyone, then you have arrived from Caren's blog and checked out her 'lovely' design. Honestly it is so hard to think about Valentine's Day when we just finished the Thanksgiving holiday!

The stamp set is D1445 Amore.

This card was indeed a challenge! After making several designs, this is the final card I made for Jen Rubio's SOTM swap.

I hope to have time later this week to remake it in traditional pinks and reds - so please plan on stopping by to check out that design!

Now off to Mary's Blog to check out her 'lovely' project as well!

11/28 ICE at the Gaylord Palms!

We spent two days at the Gaylord Palms for Thanksgiving this year and had the opportunity to 'play' around in the ICE and SNOW Show. Snow was disappointing - I am used to way more than crushed ice! (so save your money...) But we LOVED the ICE show- here we are all bundled up .....

11/15 CTMH Spotlight Blog

It's Christmas!!! - at least here on this blog hop and in many of the stores, too ! If you are hopping with us, then you have just left Traci's blog.

So WHAT can you do with all of those cherry tomato containers?

You decorate them, of course! Who doesn't need a little something for your co-worker or the dog groomer? So here they are - a few small gift items embellished with Close to My Heart stamps, of course!

The pillow box and the star container are from my favorite SVG Cut files.
Check out their Christmas Bags and Boxes SVG files - you'll love them!

11/06 It's beginning to feel like FALL!

Wow - it was so cold last night that I had to add another blanket! But it does inspire me to create Thanksgiving and Christmas projects! Here is the last layout that I created last month while my husband was having minor surgery!

Thanksgiving 2006

This is a layout from the "Members Only" section of Studio J - catching up on my layouts is SO easy with Studio J! I never thought that i would ever be a digital scrapper but I really love the quality of the photos and the price of each page! $3.25 per page is cheaper than I pay for the printing of the pictures- what a deal!!

You can try out a page yourself here - why not ask for a studio J membership for Christmas? It is only $99.00 and once a month you'll be able to receive FREE Shipping on your layouts - so I pile up a bunch of layouts each month and then send in one big order!

11/03 Studio J Thanksgiving Layout

How can you add several photos in one layout? Studio J , of course! Here is one of the layouts I made while I was waiting for my DH at the hospital - I LOVE Studio J!

My sister and her family visits and share Thanksgiving with us in 2004.....

We had a great time in spite of eating AND sleeping.....
