Giving Thanks for friends and birthdays

These photos are from Krista's 13th birthday in 2011.  She has a bunch of freinds over and they had nice weather to play outside.  I fussy cut a flower out of the paper and put it on the page with pop dots to add seme height to the page.  You can see it close-up below.

I also had this pin that I wasn't sure how to adhere to the page.  I stuck it into a piece of ribbon so that I was able to easily attach it to the page.

I used Workout 81: I am so thnakful from ScrapFit.  I am thankful to get this last challenge done before 2012 ends.  I look forward to many more scrapbook challenges in 2013!!

13 grandkids

Every Christmas we gather at my parents' house to celebrate.  Depending on the travels of my 2 sisters we may celebrate on Christmas Eve, the Saturday after Christmas or even the Sunday before Christmas.  Part of the tradition is to take a photo of all the grandkids with grandma and grandpa. In 2011 both my sisters were home with their families.  This photo shows all the grandkids with my parents.  I used the December 15th sketch from Stuck Sketches for my LO design. 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to scrap some of your traditions :-)

First day of school

Of 2011, that is.
My tradition is to take photos of my son and daughter each year before they leave for school in the morning.  These photos are usually taken outside, either in front of the evergtreeen tree or on the porch.  I take a photo of each child alone and then a photo of the two of them together.  This page will be for my son's scrapbook.  I have included the photo of him alone and one of him with Krista.  I used a piece of paper from a school pack I recently won for the background paper and some coordinating paper that I had from another kit.  I also used the big apple embellishment from the school pack.  I used Workout #82--Sketch by Diana from ScrapFit for my LO design.

My brother is gone, but not forgotten.....

These LOs were taken last august on the birthday of my brother.  The first are of his headstone.  I used the December 1st sketch from Stuck Sketches.

 These photos are of the tree planted in his memory, by his coworkers.  I used skecth #238 from Creative Scrappers for this one.
