Baby "Ace"

He everyone! As the countdown to Christmas continues, I wanted to get in on the last challenge theme over at Lasting Memories which is "Anything Goes" with a holiday theme. This Christmas, our daughter asked for a pug. It was all she wanted. As most of you know, we already have 2 big dogs and 2 cats! Well, we couldn't disappoint our girl at Christmas and it's not the first time we've had 3 dogs and 2 cats lol so meet "Ace"

He's a pug/boston terrier cross and is quite a cutie! We brough him home last Thursday and he's doing pretty good with everything!

So here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season!!!

Aim for the Moon ...

Morning! This week we have a fun challenge at Digitally Sweet! We want your sentiment to be the main focus and we're sponsored by


I coloured up this cutie image in PSE and then did my page. Once it was done, I knew I had to have something to do with the moon (lol) so went looking for a quote and found this one! I thought it was absolutely perfect and I already had all the elements! A little humour never hurt :)

Dec Digital Calendar Page

Our challenge this week at Digitally Sweet is Anything Goes and we're sponsored by Stitchy Bear!

I loved colouring up this image!! I chose Baby Baubles along with the background called ss_LakeWinter. I faded the background out and then added a December calendar grid

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have time to drop by the challenge blog to see what we all created this week! Thank you to Stitchy Bear for sponsoring us!

A New Tradition

Morning! We have a new challenge at Lasting Memories this week! It's also our start to our Deccember challenges. I can't believe these are the last challenges of 2014!! So our challenge this week?

"Home for the Holidays"
Show us a Holiday Tradition you do in your home

I decided this year that I wanted to start a new tradition - I made my kid's advent boxes! The little boxes are about 2x2 and they're from Stampin Up! I wrapped some washi tape around them and then added some stickers etc. I hope they'll make it through the season and we can re-use them next year. With Andrew away at University, I wanted to make sure he had something special to get him through the month till he comes home again on the 20th. A little taste of home

Thanks for stopping by and we look fwd to seeing what your traditions are!

Kid's Cook Off!

At Lasting Memories this week, our challenge is to base your layout on your favourite gameshow. I don't really watch a lot of game shows, which is quite funny because I chose this theme!! But I LOVE cooking shows - "The Next Great Baker" - stuff like that and there's a kid's one that's fun to watch called "Rachael vs Guy - Kid's Cook Off" on the Food Network that I based my layout on for this week and I think it's pretty fitting - we certainly had a blast doing these cookies!

Come on over and see what the DT chose as their favourite gameshows and hope you can join us!

Spread Your Wings ..

Morning all!! The winter is upon us here in Ont I think. We haven't got the snow here at home yet, but it's on the ground and causing bad driving where my son is going to University and up north from us as well. So, time to get crafty! This weeks challenge at Digitally Sweet is sponsored by


and it's a photo inspiration challenge! Isn't this pretty?!

So I decided to use the photo inspiration as my background and then had Denise remove my backgrounds (thank you!!!!!!!!!!!) from my fairies because I wanted to place one IN my little jar! So my background, jar and the 2 fairies on/in the jar are all from LunaGirl

Be sure to visit DSC for more inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!

Lest We Forget

In Flanders field the poppies grow,
For the reason we all should know.

Standing proud and tall as can be, 
Its glory and beauty we all can see.

Remembering the men who saved us all,
Their bravery and honour we all may recall.

A symbol of courage we shall never forget,
For the men who died in the war they met.

They gave up their lives to save the rest,
Although they died, they did their best.

To the bravest of all man and your respected ranks,
We look up to you always and give you thanks.

A Tribute to my Grandma

This week at Lasting Memories, our theme is Remembering Someone Special in honour of Remembrance Day this Tuesday. My layout shows an old photo of my grandma who was very dear to me, holding her son whom I never had the chance to meet. 1940 - amazing really ... I miss her a ton and she would be SO proud of all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Some of them even have a little of her spunk! LOL! Love it!
