The Scrap Shanty Winter Hurrah Crop

This week the Shanty had an on- line crop. There were tons of challenges. This is what I did. The funny shaped things are inserts for some Starbucks tumblers. Thanks for looking. Oh by the way! Merry Christmas!

What Christmas Means to ME!

I challenged everyone at the Scrap Shanty to focus on themselves for a bit and really examine what the holidays mean to them. So....I'm taking my moment. Making my list. Checking it twice. And....of course I made a scrapbook layout about it.

Now of course, I want everyone to know that I truly believe that Jesus is the reason for the season. My love and dedication to Jesus Christ is unwaivering. He is the light that guides my life and gives me true meaning.

He has blessed me and these are my top 5 blessings at Christmas time.
1. I get to see all of my favorite people under one roof.

2. My momma and granny take care of me. I can rest.

3. Everyone in the house thinks I'm precious.

4. I get to be surrounded by happiness and no drama.

5. I get to sit around the tree and sing Jimmy Buffet tunes and listen to tuba music. Doesn't everyone?

I have made a few more holiday LOs I will share too.

Well, if I don't have your addy, here is our Christmas card this year. I hope that you all have a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

A Lesson to Us All

Back up your digi files. I had my great big huge external and I really thought that I would be okay. WRONG! One day my files were all gone.

My friend Anne who is on the DT with me at the Scrap Shanty told me that her husband had used GetDataBack. Well it did! So I have the files back and I have made backups. I do need to rearrange them and get them in the correct order.

So I did have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Here is one LO that I did just because I can't stand to make a post without some picts.

This month has been so busy! Next week shows no signs of getting any easier. I have a conference this week and Cody has to visit a college. I have scrapped some. Forgive me if I repeat a few LOs.

I'm Such a Bad Blogger But I'm Thankful

For SSR this month I made two LO about thankfulness. The first is a 12X 12, the second is for a brag book that I am going to do about thankfulness.

Sam is so so funny! This is a LO of his serious injury!

Sam turned 8! I can't believe it. He is no longer my 3 month preemie baby!

Here he was just a few years ago! Well six years ago!

Last year Luke and Sam. I made the costumes!

This is a LO of my friends Judith and Marzi and our trip to "The Big Easy."

This is a LO using Kris Myers' Word Art and a poem I wrote for the kids at school about 20 years ago.
This is a LO of Oystein Baadsvik the only full time tuba soloist in the world. He was awesome! Luke's eyes were opened to the possibilities.

I was a chaperone for the big band Halloween dance. I had fun and I think Luke did too!

My boys last Autumn before Thanksgiving.

Finally here is a LO of Sam and Luke Trick or Treating this year!
