Happy Thanksgiving!

Check out the adorable turkey cookies Cameron and I made! Candy corns attached with frosting. Mini M&M's for eyes, and orange frosting for the beak and legs! Got the idea from a coupon flyer by Pilsbury. We cheated and used the premade dough.

And here are some LOs I created last night. The first is LO of us during Thanksgiving dinner, talking about what we are thankful for. Last year I did a LO showcasing the feast, so this year I thought I would focus on the people! I used a sketch from Got Sketch. The next page is simply a pocket page to put the books my kiddos made about what they are thankful for. My DH and I will each add a little something about our blessings, as well.

This LO uses pictures from 2007. I met some internet friends for the first time that year. These pictures are from a hike we took. There is also a 2nd page to this that shows us actually scrapping, but I forgot to take a picture of it. That's me on the right in all the pictures. And Willows who are visiting may recognize Rebecca in the last picture!

It's Been Awhile

It's been awhile since I have blogged. Life has been hectic here. I have still been scrapping and creating, though. Here's what I made this week....Advent Calendars. I was inspired by Lara, the owner of Scrapbook Sussies, and the calendars she created. The top one I donated to a charity auction at work. It brought in a decent amount of cash, and got me a couple of orders! Gotta love extra spending money. The bottom one I made for my kids and they love it. They have requested them for their teachers. Guess I will be busy making these before December.
