It's Been Forever

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I did and the long weekend was very much needed. I got my walk-in closet cleaned out, got my scrapbook room cleaned up and better organized and got all the inside Christmas decorations up. Didn't buy one present this weekend and now I'm starting to panic a little. But I got sometime and I got to get my lists together and just get out there. I just feel very sorry for all those people who got hurt on Friday, and those that actually lost their lives while shopping. I mean seriously! Someone has to be responsible for that and people need to care more about people's safety than getting a TV. It's a very sad reminder of how commericalized Christmas actually is.
Okay enough preaching ;0)

I hope to get my layout finished for Ian's album and start on my cookie tags. I got 2 orders to fill for our cookie swap. yeah!
Oh and by the way - GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I pray we beat the Patriots....

No longer a virgin

A Vera Bradley virgin that is! My hubby got me my first bag - I just love it! I can't believe he bought one for me and it is so huge! I can fit everything in it ;0)

And I scurried around to try and upload for one of the challenges over the weekend on Tally to find that I'm not that computer savvy when it comes to the uploading and screwed it up some how. So I couldn't enter it - at least not yet (Pray Nerd will fix my problem) But here it is for all of you to see! The challenge was to interview a child about Christmas. I've always wanted to do an interview layout with Bryson so this was fun!

Well I have a pretty busy schedule the rest of this week! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! And don't forget this is the best time to create that special page about what you are thankful for this year! I know I have a lot to be thankful for!

Happy Birthday to me and lots of other news

Yes today is the day I can no longer say I'm 32. Nope I've crossed that one off my list, now on to 33. Hope the double "3"s are good luck. Okay enough about are some pics of some cards I got done for the Black Friday Open House.

Hmm these are sorta all over the place huh?

Well my next bit of news - WAY excited that the Steelers won Sunday. But they play again Thursday, not much time to rest ;0( - And yes Latte - we can still be friends.

BUT I guess the most exciting news of all is my little guy Ian, just got his first tooth today! It broke through sometime during day and I am so tickled! He's been a little crabby ;0)

And one last pic before I go... bought Bryson and Ian new winter stuff...went to GAP outlet on Sat and got Bryson this hat. He actually got in trouble in school with cause he wanted to wear it to gym class and they wouldn't let him... well at least he likes it a lot right?

til the next time - happy scrapping!

The flipping Steelers LOST tonight to Indy - seriously it was the worst loss yet cause we GAVE them 14 points on interceptions... you just can't do that! I'm really mad at Ben right now.

BUT the good news is I got to scrapbook this weekend. I made this layout... and I started working on some mini-albums for the Black Friday sale. Hopefully I can sell them. I will post when they are done but in the meantime here is the layout I actually got done ;0)

Below are some shots of the boys from this weekend. Ian is sitting up so well now on his own, he took his first big boy bath on Friday night. And I love the one with him and Bryson playing. Bryson is the best big brother - I just love to see them interact.
