morning...



good morning. i just have a few things to share today. the layout was just for fun. i had been busy doing layouts for assignments and wanted to play... the album is something i made to send to my sister. she has a group of friends who are scrapbookers....& every now and then i make up kits for them. in the box that i'm sending this week, i decided to make up some albums that they could give as gifts. (the word Joy is from Li'l Davis)
anyone else have the christmas bug already? i've been itchin' to put my tree up!
a few years ago i decided to go fake...we had always had a real tree but realized that each and every year i was taking it down by myself, hauling it out by myself and cleaning up a huge mess, by myself! it's a nice looking tree so i don't mind.
i'm forcing myself to wait until next week... it isn't even thanksgiving for pete sake! so i decided i could at least riffle through my decorations and test all of my white lights... i have a little 2" tree that lauren is putting in her room. she wanted it in there right "now"...so last night we put some lights on it and i told her we could make some ornaments for it... she was pretty excited. the martha stewart holiday issue has some pretty cute ideas.

Very cute layout and albumn. I can't wait to get the box, its like Christmas when I get it! I know the girls will be excited also. Very cute pictures of the girls! Yah, I'm getting the itch for Christmas too, but I won't decorate until after Thanksgiving, probably the first weekend after I will start. We usually buy our tree the first weekend in Dec. Chat with you soon!

Looking forward to Kim getting the box also. i spent last weekend at a casino scrapping all day and into the night---nothing fancy just did my parents Christmas pictures for the past 40 some years. But it gave me the itch to get a great Christmas picture!

thanks for making the kits. I really enjoy them. Put my parents wedding picture on one and it looks great.

have a great week

I love, love, love the colors in that layout!! Wow. That's a great combo. The album is great, too!

I'm sticking to my tradition of putting up the tree the day after Thanksgiving (and then it comes down the day after Christmas). :) Any longer and I get totally sick of looking at it. haha

Have a great day!

yummy work, Kori.

and . . . about the tree . . . my husband has been lobbying for a couple of years for an artificial one . . . .

and now . . . I want one, too, cause, yep. . . . I do it all but the ornaments and it takes forever to do the lights .j . .

haven't told the boys, but gave Neil the goahead.

they'll scream!!!
