Thursday Thoughts

The forecast today is for high winds and already the trees are blowing quite a bit. Would be a good day to stay in and craft, but as always seems to be the case, I have to go out today to take my aunt for an appointment which means going to Boston which is getting a bit close to the East Coast where the worst of the storms are expected. I'm expecting my little car to get battered a bit!

Today I'm sharing a digital scrapbook page for the challenge over at The Memory Nest.  I'm really getting into my digi pages and although it's not quite the same as actually handling paper it's certainly much quicker.  This is a bonus at the moment as I'm feeling pressed for time as my main crafting input through December has to be my Journal Your Christmas album. I'm thinking there may come a day when card making has to have a rest for a while.

Anyway here's my page using a photo sent over of my youngest grandson just after he'd decorated the tree. (The oldest grandson has his own tree in his bedroom, but is camera shy, so no photo.) He looks so pleased with himself and it brings back memories of  how my tree used to look when my three boys used to get involved. These days it's a much more dignified and grown up affair.


Digi papers & embellishments mainly from DHD Sara Schmutz Letters to Santa

And oops! Forgot about the office supplies.

Just need to proudly display this badge. 

YAY! A top three winner at CAS Colours & Sketches and with a card I absolutely adore - like winning twice over! Thank you for picking my card.

Advent calendar task 4: Take a close up photo. So I thought I'd combine yesterday's present bought with today's photo task. I bought this present for the whole family, but know really I'm the one that's going to enjoy it the most.  Have I mentioned I love chocolate?
