Itty Bitty New Year

Decorate To Celebrate's current challenge is to create a decoration or party supply for a New Year's Party. I will admit, we are the people that always stay in. That was occurring even before the kiddos came around! 
This is a small banner, about two inches tall for each pennant. I will be taking it along to my sisters house, so I made some confetti with my Cricut, and wrapped it in some Hambly doily paper.

I used the 12.15 sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays for this layout. It is titled golden, since they were panning for gold at the Natural History Museum in Mesa. Used up lots of scrap paper with this one!

Jingle Around the Block

Ooh, how I love December! My camera was going to be rather pricey to fix, so I traded it in for a Canon powershot. So far, I have been really happy with it. Small camera, but it has a really large screen on the back. My brother has an SLR he doesn't really use because of its larger size. We are gonna work a deal out, I plan on taking it off his hands:)
My little December smash mini book has been cruising right along. I think taking the pressure off of having to take a photo everyday has really helped me. Just been printing out pictures every few days at Walgreen's and scrapping them in spurts of free time. I'll show some more pages of it next week.

Off to Audrey's little Christmas party! Have a wonderful and safe weekend.

Pencil Lines Sketch 263

I have a hodge podge of Christmas photos from last year...slowly but surely getting them done! Sketch 263 over at Pencil Lines was a great starting point for this layout.
 And, my new favorite item- this woodgrain stencil! I used a white mist for the background, but I am ready to get out some acrylic paints to play. I am thinking some woodgrain wrapping paper would be nice.

A Not So Daily..December Daily

I somehow managed to mess up my hubby's camera, so December pictures have been spotty at best. But, I am gonna make a December mini anyways! I used a smash book as the basis for this mini.
The deer image is from this Etsy shop...Katies Wish. I love that you can resize the deer to whatever size you need. 

 And, we found Santa's sleigh this weekend. Some were more excited about this than others ;)

Thanksgiving Weekend

Over the thanksgiving weekend we headed down to Bisbee, AZ. It used to be a really big copper mining town, and now is a fun place to hang out for the weekend. The history of it is absolutely fascinating. We camped right on the edge of town on a hill right beside a huge mining pit.

Who is doing a December daily? I had high hopes to do one, but then my camera broke. I may just borrow my hubby's camera and start shooting away and still make a mini:)
