Cancun Album

I have been busy working on another chipboard album (just about half way complete).  This album is all about a trip I won a few years ago through work.  
I was reorganizing/cleaning up my scrapbook room after finishing the American Girl album and found this album kit from the Button Farm.  I actually only purchased the album because it contained Graphic 45 paper.  

I absolutely love, love, love Graphic 45!!!!  

So while I sat and drooled over the lovely paper in the kit trying to decide if I was ready to do another album or if I wanted to play with my new Cameo, I remembered the pictures of our Cancun trip.

And the only reason I remembered the pics was because one of the images from the trip was mistakenly placed in the American Girl folder...  So I guess it is fate - I had to do the Cancun trip!  And once I started looking through the folder of all the pictures I took of the trip - YEP definitely - perfect pictures for this album!

Pages 1, 2 & 4
Pages 5, 6 & 8

I still have 6 more pages plus the back of the album to complete, but I am liking the results so far!

So I hope you enjoy!  I know Alan and I enjoyed a fantastic, relaxing week in Cancun.

American Girls

All my Christmas "stuff" is finished so I sat down today and worked on a chipboard album.  Completed seven pages featuring my granddaughters and their American Girl dolls.  I have taken five of my six granddaughters to the American Girl store here in Texas.  Each one has chosen either a doll or a horse (and some have both)!  

We have taken all the dolls to the salon, either at the time they were purchased or in a couple of cases, a year or two later to be cleaned up and/or get a new hairdo.  

As a birthday gift a couple of years ago, I took my granddaughter Bella, her doll and my daughter Jackie to the American Girl Bistro for lunch.  We had so much fun!  

The album includes all the visits to the store.  I was asked today, who will you give this album to?  I've decided this will be my keepsake, to be shared when my American Girls come to visit...

Christmas Cookies and Candy

All my baking is done!  YAY!  I have all the candy and cookies packaged up, and most have been mailed or hand delivered.  Here are a couple bags of goodies that still need to be delivered to some very special neighbors.

2012 Christmas Cards

After an extended visit of 3 weeks to St. Louis, I finally completed all of my Christmas cards for this year.  They are all addressed and in the mail!  One big item off the checklist for Christmas 2012!
