 Happy Sunday!! Man am I glad this week is done!! Lee has been away hunting and I had a million and one things going on!!! Parent Teacher Interviews at my school, scrapbooking group, a Christmas card workshop.... on top of all of the other regular day to day things!! Thank goodness I have Codie to help out!!

 I am really wishing I was in London today so that I could be taking part in all of the fun at Kraftin' Kimmie Day!! but unfortunately I couldn't make it ): I went last year and had a blast and I would have loved to go this year to meet the amazing Annie Rodrigue in person! not to mention Kraftin Kimmie Girl Tara who wasn't there last year.
 Anyway, here I am at home doing laundry ):  (I know! I know! I'm having a little pity party for myself!!)

 This layout is the one my scrapping group did this month. It is the Mischief WOTG from Close To My Heart, the same kit I used for the Halloween banner. I love how it turned out and it was pretty straight forward to do. The felt shapes add so much and are so easy!! The stamp set that comes with this workshop is fabulous!! I can see myself using it over and over again. The title was done using Posterboard Alpha.
 The pics are of my kids 2 years ago. They weren't the best pics but they worked well for this layout.

 My dear blogging friend Roxy reminded me that this would be perfect for the challenge over at Creative Accents so I am going to enter it in their October: Use the colour Orange Challenge.

 The kids and I are off to the grocery store to pick out some pumpkins!! Have a great week!!

55/78 pages done (:

Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone!!! I have been spending the morning downloading songs to add to my new Ipod Shuffle that I bought so I would have something to keep me entertained while I try out a thing called exercise ): I signed my whole family up at the Y at the beginning of September and just finally got in to meet with one of their trainers to set up an exercise/weight program for myself. I'm actually quite excited to get started I just hope I am motivated enough to stick with it. I'm already feeling muscles I didn't know I had just from testing out the weights the other night ):
 The kids have been enjoying it though!! They are all doing swimming lessons plus one other thing. Aidan is enjoying Judo which will be good for him because discipline is a big thing!! Azelyn is in Kindergym and Kieran is our little gymnastics superstar!!! They put him into the advanced boys after one day in beginners (: I knew there had to be a sport out there for him!!!

 Anyway, this is a layout I did of Azelyn using the CTMH Sophia workshop on the go. I have had this kit along with the pics just sitting there begging to be put together so I finally did it!! Everything is CTMH except for the border punch which was Martha's. I made a stamping boo boo with the bird at the top but I don't think it even really shows??

 I think that this layout completes my challenge for this year!!!! and I still have my weekend crop in a couple of weeks to get a bunch done!! Maybe I will challenge myself to another 26 pages before the end of the year just to keep me going (:

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

53/52 pages complete  (now 53/78)

Birthdays are good for you...

the more you have the longer you live!
 My Dad's 60th was yesterday and we are having what was supposed to be a surprise party (Mom caved) tonight.
 I loved this little LOTV image and thought it would be perfect for his card. I used MME Stella & Rose Hattie paper, and CTMH sentiment and hemp. I stamped this cutie in Momento ink and then coloured him with my copics. I cut the image out with my Spellbinder die.
 I am going to enter this in Cute Card Thursday's challenge 184 Animal Crackers.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
