Snow Day - Part 2

Daddy doesn't have to go to work today until 12:30 so we cancelled homeschool again! I finished Chiefie's page last night and have now also completed Cleo's page.  It is bittersweet working on these pages, memorials for our dear 4-legged friends.  I sure miss them all.

Super Snow Day!

We had a great, lazy day!  Here in central GA we had a rare instance of "winter weather" and Daddy didn't have to go to work, so we cancelled homeschool.  I spent the day reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" in front of the fire and scrapping.  First, I completed this page about our dog Kane, who we lost in July of 2009.  The deco squares and the center photo matte were created by scrapping friends for a swap. You can see my July 2009 blog entry for the journalling that I copied for this layout. I also started a page for Chief, who we lost in July of 2010, but that one isn't quite done yet.

Happy New Year!

Wow! I can't believe my last post was in November! Those of you who know me well are aware we had some escalating chaos in our house last year - and I'm praying that 2011 will be a calm, drama-free, uneventful year! Yeah, right! I somehow doubt that's what God has in mind for our family, but a girl can always hope, right??
Here are a couple of cards I created this week using my supplies from my favorite company, BasicGrey.  These are from their Green at Heart product line.  The supplies came with card-making instructions that I varied in order to create standard sized cards. I hate trying to figure out how to mail an odd-sized card that I don't have an envie for!
Anyway, thanks for looking & wishing all my friends & family a fantastic 2011!
