Merry Christmas!!

Hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas Eve. We opened gifts tonight since my grandmother was in town and is leaving early in the morning. We will still have Tally's Santa gifts out for her before we go to breakfast to tell GiGi bye. She racked it up this year. She has tons of clothes, some boots, 4 new dolls, a new stroller/playpen set for the dolls, Little People Preschool, Aquadoodle, ScuttleBug tricycle, Fisher Price Laptop, a new tinkerbell chair and matching hamper and plenty of gifts cards. She has a few Santa gifts which will include a kitchen, a Disney Princess tent and a big tub of megablocks. She got to interested in a couple of things to open all her gifts tonight so I opened most of the clothes and a few of the toys that she didn't really notice with all of the other goodies. LOL I received a few things this Christmas, some of my things I got before Christmas... Matt and I usually just buy ourselves something small that we want since we get some many things for ourselves during the year. I got Matt one of those egg muffin toasters (He's loves it and so do I!!) I bought myself another expansion to my Sims 2 game. Tonight I got a new purse which I needed since one of my dogs chewed on the strap of my semi new one that I already had. Also got a new scrap bag and The Fray cd, plus many gift cards again. ;)

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas tomorrow and I hope to have some pages this next week since I've been slacking so much!!

Christmas countdown...

I can not believe that Christmas is only a week away. I finally finished wrapping all of the gifts and have almost everything sent. Jeanne, your package is going out Monday! ;) My MIL ordered Tally's gifts online this year and they are being sent here unwrapped. So I get to wrap those towards the end of the week when they come in. Joy!

Miss Mint is having a 20% off sale until Dec 19th and a buy a gift card and get a gift card worth 50% of that for free. Details are at Peppermint Creative. She also added 2 new kits this past week.

So I have page featuring little Miss Ann Marie, using Miss Mints new Cherry Berry Christmas kit and Michelle Pearson's Frame it and Black Contrast actions on the pic!

I have some exciting things going on in my life non-scrapbook related that I'm not ready to share with everyone yet. Hopefully I will be able to share this with you after the new year. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Nothing to interesting to say...

Just wanted to check in and say Hi! So Hi! lol

Angela, I put up a link to my DST Gallery on the left just for you ;) Last week I got Scrap Page of the Day at Creating Keepsakes for that LO. ;)

I'm pretty tired and have been running around on and off getting ready for Christmas. I've only finished one page since I last posted, isnt' that just sad. It's with DDE's new Christmas kit.

Not sure what my problem has been but I hope to get some of these half finished pages I've tried working on...finished soon. All my CT's are going to drop me if I don't get my booty in gear ;)

I held my friends 4 week old baby boy today and it's making me really really really want to be pregnant soon. We have been trying for the past couple of months and I hope that it pays off at the beginning of the year! Ok, I need to make my midnight curfew that I set for myself and get in bed. Night ladies!

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? I used to like Egg Nog but not anymore, now it's hot chocolate all the way!

So, you know how I said I was going to wrap gifts last week... still haven't done it! I am so bad! Still waiting on my magnet calendars and on my Christmas photocards to come in from Winkflash, it's been a week. I'm hoping they don't have to much of a delay. I got my calendars in for my inlaws, they turned out pretty good. Only thing we didn't really like was how November came out to red on our picture. Excuse the bad pictures of them... it's my point & shoot. lol

We still have snow on the ground but it's slowly melting. Tally didn't really care for it so I didn't get many pictures like I wanted. The ones I did get were crappy. Should have used Matt's camera. ;)

Few pages using Atomic Cupcakes stuff... Not my best work but they turned out ok!

Then we have one here that I used with Mindy Terasawas Lil Trouble Maker kit...

I think that's all for today! Going to get started on cleaning up my office, we are about to move my craft desk in here and get rid of my P.O.S. desk!
