Thankful for You

While on our retreat, I completed 3 card kits! Very proud of myself. Not very productive on the LO's this time around, but won't be needing cards for awhile! Here's 2 of the cards I did from the "Pathfinders" CTMH card workshop kit

DSC - Opposites!

This week at Digitally Sweet it's all about "Opposites Attract"! And I decided to go with shapes - circles/squares. My image is reindeer silhouette from Bugaboo (love it!)

What Makes Me Smile

We're having our last challenge for the month of November at Lasting Memories and it's all about the title this week! We want to see those titles stand out! Here's my take on this challenge - hope you have time to pop over and see the rest of the DT work!

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!
