A little busy, a little scrappy

Wow, I can't believe it is Saturday already! I've been a little busy this week with nothing in particular really, just the every day goings on. But instead of boring you with all of that, how about I post some LOs and projects I did this week? Sound cool?! Cool!

This is my Gratitude Album. Janet at Scrapperie is hosting a '21 days of gratitude' challenge. I chose this cute little file folder album and have been making tags. I've done five so far, so I really need to be catching up. So far, I have been thankful for FAMILY, CHINESE TAKE-OUT, OLD FRIENDS, OUR NEW HOUSE, AND MY QUIET TIME. I'll post more as I do them.

Here's a quick little LO I did of AJ in her Halloween shirt. It's actually a lift from another member over at Scrapperie. I think it turned out cute and I am in love with those chipboard letters. One of our LSS makes that font---too cute!

Here's a LO I actually did for a swap, but then I ended up not going to the crop in order to swap, so yesterday, when I got AJ's school picture back, I new where it needed to go:

I did this LO for the Nov/Dec Challenge over at Scrapperie. The theme for this week was "Your Superhero" I chose to do a LO about my dad.

The journalng reads:
~He was the strongest man I knew
~He was never scared of anything
~He stood up for what he believed in
~He was ten feet tall and bulletproof

~He fought the good fight
~He never gave up

He was My Daddy and I miss him so much.

This Layout was hard for me to do, all of the words just poured out and then came all of the tears. I haven't really cried or grieved since he passed, and I think this layout has helped me to start the process. So see, scrapbooking IS therapeutic!

Well we are getting ready to go to Web's granddaughter's birthday party. AJ is gone all weekend with my parents out of town and we are home alone ;) Hopefully I can work in my scraproom (or is it a studio?! LOL) some tonight or tomorrow.
