Oh Christmas Tree

I finally got around to creating a scrapbook page of my tree. I extracted the tree from the original photo and put it into a layout using the "Night Before Christmas 2" kit from ScrapKitten. It's a very cool kit. I love the ornaments. You can't see my black cat in the picture but she's in there under the tree.....It won't look like it does for very long if the two cats continue to play in it the way they have been... Oh well, it's not going to be up that long anyway. The font I used in the layout is called Christmas. The ornaments are all Disney except for about 10 that my mom and kids made for me.

Let It Snow

I am not very good at keeping up with my blog so a little over a month and I am posting again. It has been a busy month as I am looking for new employment. End of the year isn't the ideal time to look for a new job but that's the way it goes I guess. I haven't done too much in the scrapbooking area lately either. I find it a bit amazing that if one doesn't define themselves as their position at work, how can it be so hard to just get by???? I have always defined myself as a mother of two, grandmother, sister....etc, not as xyz employee or manager or whatever... So, if that's the case I don't understand why I am having difficulty functioning...rebel without a cause so to speak. I guess I have time to ponder that....

So, we had our first snow of the season...first snow dropped over five inches on us and I had a blast watching the dogs outside. Murphee and Daisie absolutely enjoyed the snow, Murphee a little less than Daisie but at nearly 14 years old, she's allowed. So, I created a couple scrapbook pages of them while they were outside. I used "WintreeWeather" by Linda Walton of 3Scrapateers and the metallic elements were by Claudia Cochran.

I haven't done anything with Thanksgiving because when I left my sisters, I picked up the wrong camera and the family photos are on my camera still. I won't get it exchanged with my sister until Christmas so I guess I will be scrapping both Thanksgiving and Christmas at the same time.

I finally got the Christmas Tree put up and will probably scrap that later as well. I kind of want to wait and take pictures of my kids and sisters trees and scrap them all together. I got a cool new kit from ScrapKitten called "Night Before Christmas2" and I can't wait to use it. ScrapKitten is having their Grand Opening and they are having a special 48 hour $10 worth of product and get a coupon for $10 but hurry it won't last long.
