So, I've decided over the past couple of weeks to try out for a couple scrapbooking design teams. Definitely not for my stamping skills, lol. But I've had the goal the past couple of years to get some pages published and I thought that it's kind of hard to get published if you never submit, right?? SO, I have already applied to one site and am working on my application for a second one. I will share some of those layouts later--probably over the weekend. And I also have an altered clock that I've been working on tonight that I will post as well. :-) Lots of fun creative stuff going on around here and I'm sure after Will deploys there will be even more because I will have lots more free time on my hands after the kiddos go to bed.
Anyway, today I'm sharing this wreath. It was a kit from Making Memories that I received for winning the name tag contest at the swap I went to in October. And those gorgeous kids in the photos are my 2 girls and my **hopefully- sometime -in -the- near- future -soon -to- be step-children**. Clockwise they are Sidney, Shawn, Hayley, Spencer, and Caitlynn. Yep, 5. We have 5 kids between the two of us, and I really want to have one more. I know, totally crazy, right?? We'll see how things go. I had tons of fun doing this wreath, so I really recommend it if you were thinking about getting one. The instructions are super easy to follow and there are seriously a million ways to dress it up. Mine is pretty basic at this point because I was pressed for time, but I'm thinking that after this Christmas is over I'll go back and re-vamp it a bit and give it some real pizazz & Erika-type flair! :-)
I cannot believe that Christmas is coming up so fast. Crazy how quickly this year has flown by.
