As luck would have it mine just arrived in my mailbox a couple of days after this Workout was posted. To see Workout #58 check out ScrapFit. You have until December 31st to enter.
I also used some of my new embellishment that I won from Part-Time Pretties.

Workout #57 Word of the year

Here is my LO for ScrapFit Workout #57. My word of the year is FAITH. It has been a very sad time for my family since this past May when my brother suddenly died. We have all needed each other. I have come to realize we all need a lot of faith to get through this difficult time. The last time all my siblings were together was last christmastime. We had taken some photos of the five of us with my parents. It is this photo that I used in my LO.
So I will be having lots of Faith throughout 2012.

MSW Blog Hop card

Here is the card that I created based on the sketch and challenge from My Sketch World. It was fun making another christmas card. It was based off Sherri's scrapping, quilting, running blog. I used the same tree stamp as my other cards.

Dad Helps

I created this Lo based on the sketch for Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop. It is from Christa's Do what you love Blog. I took this photo of my husband helping my son with his homework last Fall.
I had taken some random shots of my family doing everyday things and thought it was time to scrap this one. I often scrap all the special events, but it is the everyday things that really tell our story. I love the photo and how the LO turned out.


Last Thanksgiving my sister was home with her twins. I took these photos of them brushing their teeth. I used the December 1st sketch from Stuck Sketches. I drew a teeth freehand, cut them out, and then attached with with dental floss.
