So happy for you

Good Morning my friends!! It will be a busy few days around here. I have to finish my Christmas shopping today, yikes what was I thinking. I also have to finish a scrapbook that a friend asked me to help her with for her m-i-l. I realized a few things while I have been making my way through creating the pages: 1) creating a LO is really tough without a photo and 2) creating a scrapbook for someone you don't know(especially without photos) is even more tough. The problem that I ran in to is when I was at her house last week getting it started she kept mentioning "my m-i-l would like this" meaning specific style I guess. Well I was trying to keep true to that and I was not having any luck being creative. So last night when I felt all creativity leave my brain I not only turned to a scrapbook magazine for help but I also went a little more "my style." Because her m-i-l is not a scrapper, I left the pages super simple, leaving a spot for a photo and I also adhered some double sided tape to where the photo should go so all she has to do is cut the photo down and then remove the backing of the tape and slap it in place. Simple enough, right?

I feel bad because the pages that are my favorite are the ones that are more my style and that I created using inspiration from the magazine. Oh well, I am sure her m-i-l will love it.

So anywho, then tonight I have to close at work (until 11pm), then tomorrow I have to work until midnight and then Christmas Eve I work 1:30-6:30. I feel sad that the time from Halloween until Christmas just FLEW by. Like seriously, I don't feel I got to enjoy the anticipation of each holiday. Do you know what I mean? I will however be happy to start the new year. I feel really good things are in the works for my family for 2012.

Well on to today's project, it was created by our Delightful Designer, Abby using the December card kit. Now I love all of Abby's work but I think this is one of my absolute favs.
