Sledding Wheeee!

Yes, that's actually me and Brad out sledding on Dec. 19th. I'm usually the photographer these days, so was quite surprised when he grabbed me and we rode down the hill laughing all the way. At one point DGD Kaylee was also pushing us. LOL

Based on a wonderful sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches!

Our Blessings

Another version of the grandkids' group photo on Thanksgiving. This page is for little grandson Nate, 2nd in the photo. He rarely ever looks at the camera and I'm so happy he did in this one!

Booked our Spring Cruise!

Yesterday, we booked a 10-day Caribbean Cruise and I'm just sooo excited! It's aboard the Ruby Princess which is a fairly new ship, just 2 years old. We have 6 different ports and 3 of those we've never been. We always have lots of fun choosing a great cruise with lots of interesting places and then comes the fun of choosing what cool things we can find to do at each place. Our favorite thing is finding a beach and hopefully getting to snorkle, but we'll see what fun things we can find.

Just 55 more days to go! LOL

ScrapMuse January Contest!

The January challenge is hosted by Janet this month and here are some of the details, but please come check it out over at ScrapMuse!

In her words.....
My challenge for you this month is all about the embellishments. I would like you to make your own by cutting them out of patterned paper. It's a way to use what you already have at hand.

Another thing that I would like you to use to embellish your page is chipboard die cuts or chipboard stickers or if you don't have any of these then any kind of chipboard will do. The theme is totally up to you.

A couple of reminders, layouts must be new and posted in the ScrapMuse Gallery under "January 2010 Contest". Please also link them to the challenge thread so we can all enjoy them. You will be playing for a prize pack valued at $25.00. The winning layout will also be featured on our blog. The design team will select the winning layout by voting for their favorite layout based on the layout itself and by following the challenge as described. The deadline for this contest is January 31 at midnight, EST time.

Have fun! Can't wait to see what you create.

Precious Baby Bear

Check out the first layout I’ve done with the 'Parisian Nights' kit. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to scrap something of my youngest granddaughter Lucy as you can see she’s in her little bear outfit!
