Wow....today was certainly a MONDAY, that's for sure!! Some of you might remember a few years back when I was waiting up late one night for Chris to get home from work & our tree fell over.....spilling water everywhere & breaking some of our special ornaments, etc. Well, evidently it happened last night around midnight......while I was upstairs snoozing away. I didn't have a clue until I came down this morning & saw all the ornaments spread across the piano & all the lights & beads hanging all askew on the tree. We must remember to ALWAYS tie that silly thing to the bookcase from now on! Anyways.....after lunch we spent a good part of the afternoon getting the tree all situated & tied to the bookcase. Then I had to redo all the lights & beads & again, I let the kids take it after that & do all the redecorating. That was NOT on my list of things to do on this MONDAY! I have plenty of crafty/scrappy/hooky projects that I REALLY need to be working on for Christmas gift-giving. I did manage (between redecorating the tree & doing laundry & changing the sheets on the beds) to get one more layout done for Clay's NY album.
|I was able to combine it with one of the challenges at Cookin' Up Creations for the month of December. We're trying to keep things simple this month so folks can still be able to scrap even during this buy time of year. We're revisiting some of our favorite challenges that have been done over the past year. And this page was done using one of the sketch challenges that Sandy posted.|
And here's my 'Happy' for the day. In the midst of all my craziness & fussing/cussing about the tree.....finding this in my mailbox this evening totally brought a smile to my face & just made my day!
Here's the story behind this book:
