Some stuff...

We had a nice weekend. Friday night was my company Christmas party and it turned out very nice. Saturday, I cleaned a little and then went to my mom's to make cookies. I didn't get much done though. I've been blah these past few weeks. I think I am really missing my dad about now. This will be the first Christmas without him and it is hitting me harder than I thought it would. But I am muddling through. Today I actually made some fudge and AJ and I decorated some cookies. I even made another batch of cookies--although I think Web has eaten them all by now.

I haven't posted any LOs in a while, so I thought I would show ya a few: This was a challenge layout for Scrapperie~~it had to be 3-D. Everything except the pics are pretty much popped!

This next one, I must say, turned out way better than I expecrted. It was this week's challenge at Scrapperie. We had to use lyrics that reminded us of someone and explain why. I wrote the lyrics on the scroll work and my journaling is hidden. It was actually picked as LOTD over at Scrapperie! How exciting is that?!

Today, as I was frantically searching for my Christmas cards (nope. didn't make them, had them printed when we got family pictures made) I found 3 Colorbok Christmas Frame Kits as well as 2 Embellished Wood Kits that I got from H*bby L*bby last year for 90% off!!!! So now, I think I will make a few for some hard to buy for gifts! Well, I've put AJ and Web to bed, guess it's time to start being creative! ;)

Hey girl.
This year is going to be a tough one for you.
I wish there was something I could do or say that would make you feel better.
Celebrate those beautiful memories.
