The tree is finally home and the smell is so glorious I almost stayed home, tonight it's decorating time and Miss M is ready to put the star on the top. Hope you all are having the best holiday ever and be sure to create merry memories for yourselves!
I decided to create a pillow box out of Kazan's sketch this week, you know so many gifts...so little time...and some inspiration for your home also, Enjoy!
For 8 years I had an only child a darling boy that I still adore. Christmas meant boy themed decorations. My tree had Power Rangers, Batman, Superman, every action hero you could ever think a boy wanted. For 13 years it has grown and changed, Star Wars, Fairly Odd Parents, Sponge Bob and so forth. The only thing that remains a constant are the little soldiers...my nutcracker collection that started on his first Christmas. This Sizzix die was CALLING my name. I decided to do another card just because you need to celebrate your traditions, keep close what is in your heart, one day my teenager will be a fully grown man with a family of his own and God knows how many nutcracker I will have collected by then...all for his new little family to keep.
There's plenty to share, this is St. Mathew's Parrish, built in 1773, National Monument. My son had a school project on the parrish, we learned so much and he was honored by helping during mass reading the second lecture.
Miss M had the pony's with dad. And I had a blast as a witch in Halloween, look real close and you'll see the feathers in my lashes. Here's this week's take on Kazan's sketch. Great message for all of us: Be yourself everyone else is already taken!
Have an awesome week
My Halloween was spooktacular!!! Filled with the best of friends. We had a perfect start with the kids helping me to make breakfast. No more sugar rush and while we played a match of Blokus we searched for November Page Maps. Here's my work for this month.
Hi it's been a while, had no camera, can you imagine the backlog of work I have to share... Anywho I made a card for Kazan'a sketch inspired in all the goodness coming our way. The kids are ready for Halloween, soon it will be time to spend with our families giving thanks for keeping us together and making us stronger and then my favorite of all Christmas and all it's wonderful meaning. So nourish your soul, your mind and brace yourself for all the wonderful things coming your way! I am sharing the house I made as seen on the Basic Grey Gallery. Don't forget there is a DT call @ 2s4u!
My cousin Liza married this weekend, it was such a fabulous wedding, such a beautiful setting. We wish them endless happiness.
For this week Kazan made a great sketch that I decided to turn into a frame. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Our weekend was a bliss, a trip to Flamenco Beach in Culebra, PR, one of the best 10 beaches of the world!!! Guess the pictures can tell why. Miss M enjoyed her cold cocunut water. More photos to post later.
I made a card for a friend of a friend who is retiring, I used Kazan's sketch with the rollercoaster paper from MME. She wanted me to use that cool car, as he collects antique cars I could not resist putting the jst chillin image inside. Happy Retirement!!!
This week we worked on an awesome surfboard cake, it took my whole kitchen by storm. Little Miss M was excited and wanted to play with the frosting, proud mama reports she did a row of perfect swirls.
Then we played with MME, happy the papers are finally here. And Laura made a great sketch this week so I was compelled to use the new MM ghosts for her, enjoy!
