what i'm grateful for........

I love this time of year - the kids are giddy - the house is warm and cozy - i'm i've got the cleaning bug - organizing - dejunking - the works. With the Thanksgiving being here it kinda has given me that extra push to get it all done - the only downfall - alot of pain - i've done a little to much to soon and i'm paying for it. But i'm soooooooooo grateful for our home - for my family, my beautiful kids and wonderful supportive husband. I have the BEST parents around - I love them so much and am so grateful for the support and love i get in return from them -they are always there for me no matter what - even if there are disagreements now and then - they still love me. My sister and her family - I love my nephews to pieces - and of course my wonderful in-laws - i couldn't have married into a better family. For my friends - who put up with my absence (with dean never really around i don't get much time to do the friend thing). I'm grateful for this awesome hobby that i have to endulge in every chance i get - for the friends i have made through scrapbooking, the inspiration i get, and the memories i preserve for my family. So i hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving - i can't beleive its here - and i can't beleive that we are going to cut down our tree on friday either - I LOVE IT!

Here are a few projects i thought fit the theme today - this fun layout using Pink Paislee's Amber Road Collection which I love too - this layout is to remember how much baylee adores her daddy right now - its seriously the sweetest thing. This album was fun - i dry brushed a Basic Grey chocolate album to give it the distressed look - again used the Amber Road collection from Pink Paislee - and all of the pictures are from this Fall - pumpkin patch, feild trips to the corn maze and picking apples.

Out for publication!!

I have some more fun projects to share in a few days from the 2 new Fancy Pants collections so check back!!
Happy Thanksgiving!
P.S. make sure to head over to the GCD blog - they are doing 2 giveaways!!
