Fun at K2

On the Friday after Thansgiving I spent the evening with some girls over at K2 for some real Scraptherapy. I was able to relax after taking care of the family all day. I spent some time organizing the rest of my digi stuff and and the rest of the time making this digi LO! TFL

So much to be thankful for...

-my husband and kids
-my parents, brother and his wife
-my in-laws
-my health
-my friends
-my dogs
-my home...the list could go on and on

On my run this morning as I reached the top of the Ringling Bridge, the sun was coming up through the clouds and it took my breath away at the beauty of our city. I turned my ipod off and thanked God for all that he has blessed me with. An amazing way to start my day. I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed day today too!

Happy Thanksgiving,

K2 Weekly Challenge

We are decorating the STUDIO for the holidays and we want YOU to help. This weeks challenge is to make an ORNAMENT for our Christmas tree using your scrapbooking supplies. This challenge will continue till Christmas. (Don't forget to put your name in the jar when you drop off your ornament!) My ornaments are made from wooden spools.
I inked the edges with various colors.
I wrapped the center with digital paper and embellishements from the Sapphire Sparkle digi kit I got from here:
I embellished the cord with ribbon, beads and vintage earings and pins.
Hang on tree and enjoy all season!

Quote of the Day!

I'm Home.

Thank you for all the thoughts, prayers and phone calls for me and my family.
My whole family arrived in Wisconsin last Friday and Saturday safely (that is not to say without a few glitches), and we all arrived home safely too!
I have so much catch up work to do, so I will post again as soon as I can. (I literally put life on hold for a week to just spend as much time as possibe with my family.)
