A gift for Thomas

Hi everyone! How are you this week? Getting everything done for Christmas? I am telling you it has been nuts here at our house trying to wrap up some last minute things. This weekend Haley and I made carmel puff corn for her friends. We bagged it up in cute little reindeer holiday bags for her to take to school. Tomorrow is her last round of finals and that will end the first semester at BC! I can't believe how fast the time went. Sidney decided she wanted to take flavored candy canes to her friends and I am so glad that she did because Momma is pooped! Saturday some friends and I went shopping and we shopped from 9:30-9:30! I can't believe it but I got all the stocking stuffers and had a great time with my girlfriends so it was worth I am sure that I walked off some of those holiday goodies I have been indulging in *wink*

Check this out...

This is a page that I made for our son. He was home in September for our Granddaughter's baptism and we got this picture of him holding her. Isn't it the cutest picture? I just love the expression on her face! She is holding the penguin that he got for her when they went to the zoo...she just loves that thing! I knew months ago that I was going to do something for him with this picture. So I bought one of those scrapbook page frames at Michael's...they are spring loaded on the back so if you have lumpy embellishments on you page it won't matter it will fit! The whole project is matted on white 12x12 cardstock, then the top and bottom edges of the hot pink cardstock are cut with the Fiskars Threading Waters punch, the patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Party Time glitter slab (Hobby Lobby). It's kinda hard to see but the orange "frame" (I cut this myself so it's a little crooked) is Bazzill Bling and the lime green strip of cardstock is punched out with the Martha Stewart Doily punch.

Have you ever used Dew Drops by Robin's Nest? They are so fun! That is what I used to accent the scalloped circle below. Pretty fun huh? They come in so many colors and they give you a different look then using a brad. Just nice to change it up sometimes.

Well, thanks for peekin' in. We are supposed to get a crazy winter storm here this week. Our daughter is supposed to be coming home with her little one for Christmas on Christmas morning but I don't know if that will happen if we get the weather they say we might. We shall see. I sure want to see them open their presents this year! Merry Christmas to you all!

It is a great page. Will it be able to be reframed, since it was damaged in the mail.
