The kit has some really great elements in it, and is very classic looking, perfect for almost every holiday project.
This is a little sneakie peakie for the Creating Inspirations kit for December. I will share more stuff from that fun kit soon! This is a card that uses My Minds Eye paper and tag, a Heidi Swapp flower and my handwriting. Stitching around the tag and paper and a light blue scallop on the right edge for finishing touches. I have someone in mind to give this too with a little goodie, hope it inspires some gift giving ideas for others!
Played tennis today, and had a great time, my gym buddy went to the "Body Pump" class without me, so proud of her and kinda bummed I couldn't be in two places at once!
Of course there are loads of things going on around here, but I am trying to slow down and enjoy the holidays with my darling kids! Hard for me to do, but I am going to try!

This is a garland made with the My Minds Eye "Frost" line of papers, Maya Road snowflakes and a slew of silver glitter and ribbon!
I have a dear friend who has a lot of exciting things going on in her life, some have been challenges and others triumphs. It is so interesting to see what each day brings to her, and I am really grateful for her friendship, she keeps things FUN! We have been trying to get to the gym together too, and we worked out yesterday doing a class called "Body Pump" it is an aerobic weight lifting class with really great music. It really kicked our behinds, it was so fun! We will be doing that again for sure! Anyway, a little sore from it I have to admit!
There is a new release at PcLayers tomorrow a beautiful holiday themed kit called "Yuletide" I will share some projects tomorrow! We also have some exciting stuff planned for the next few weeks so be sure to look for what is up with that! And my crazy talented girl Kayla has some great news, so be sure to check out what is up with her!
I am excited that I get to take some pictures of the snow tomorrow morning when it "glistens" anyone who has seen Utah snow the bright blue morning after a snow storm knows what I mean, and if you don't, I hope you have the chance to see and understand someday.

I am having a serious crush on glitter right now, so this was perfect for me!
I used the Tattered Angels glimmer mist in peach on Maya Road chip alpha and then touched it lightly with Art glitter in Aztec Gold. The heart in the middle is Melissa Francis and the number four and letter "u" are Heidi Swapp with the Aztec Gold glitter on them. And I just love that Scenic Route paper, so perfect for my love for kids, kind of reminds me of the leaves on my family tree.
I just used random pictures of each of the kids from this year that showed each of the kids personalities. A real treasure to me!
Anyway, if you have time this week to play I would really be GRATEFUL!!!

it is kind of quiet...
It has been a while since I posted, and it is kind of hard getting back in the saddle.
PcLayers released an amazing kit this week by Natalie Malan, and I have been using it waaaaaaay toooooooo much!
It is called Sugar Cookie, and it has so many wonderful papers, accents, and brushes!!!
PcLayers is also doing an incredible contest right now, and the prizes are wowsers! A digital SLR is the grand prize, and everyone has a chance at that one, so check it out.
I had a great time in Vancouver! And I am still trying to catch up from being gone, but the kids and Dave were all fine while I was gone, so that is a huge relief. They had a couple of adventures that kept things interesting, and it helps them appreciate me when I get back, gotta love that.
Anyway, I will be back with the projects from the November Creating Inspirations kit, it was a lovely box of fun filled with goodies from Cloud Nine and Heidi Grace, very cute!

Rachel bless her heart keeps reminding me to breathe, great advice when I start feeling a little overwhelmed.
This class is a project with the idea of remembering all the little things that make your family's traditions special. I am excited to use this myself for my family this season, because our kids are reaching an age that they won't all be with us in the next few years, so I really want to capture and share what it is that makes our holidays special to us.
A really amazing contest has just started at PcLayers digital scrapbooking! They are giving away some amazing prizes, and I am so jealous that I can't play along!
Also, the kit at Creating Inspirations is out and it is a darling combination of Heidi Grace and Cloud Nine goodies that are sure to delight and inspire!
This is Chloe's list of the little things that make her smile, and a lot of the things that she mentions are things that make me smile too!
Like mother like daughter, LOL!
