Turning back the clock

I have spent hours sorting through my photos to try and get them in some kind of order so I can scrap them. I wish there had been "scrapping" when my kids were little, maybe then I wouldn't be so far behind. This layout, finished tonight, is of my daughter, who will soon be 22 years old!
I love CTMH scrapbooking kits, paper packets and stickers, everything coordinates so nicely. This layout uses the Simple Pleasures Kit and Bamboo, Cocoa, Desert Sand and Twilight paper and inks.

My home coffee shop

Once upon a time we lived in the city and every morning I would go through the drive and pick up a latte to enjoy on my way to work..... life was good! Then one day I was offered a job in a small town and we sold our city house and moved to the country.... life was still good (and much more laid back and quieter) except for one thing........ My husband, who still worked just outside the city would call before he came home from work each day and the conversation would go something like this:

Hubby: Is there anything you would like me to pick up for you on the way home from work?
Me: Oh, yes please! Could you swing by the drive through and pick me up a latte?

This lasted for a few weeks when the conversations changed to this:

Hubby: Do you have any idea how much money you spend in lattes? Can't you just make coffee at home, we have a perfectly good coffeemaker.
Me: But it's not the same......(pout, pout, pout).....

This went on for some time until Starbucks had thier annual brew event and machines were 40% off. I became the proud owner of my very own machine and can make lattes, etc. to my hearts content and my husband never has to go through a drive-thru again! (Now I spend money on neat mugs and flavoured syrups)!

Snow day

The temperature dipped to -55 celcius with the windchill today and the roads were impassable in places. School buses weren't running and some schools were closed, so I took a "snow day". I spent most of the day making cards for a CTMH swap I am in. It's amazing how fast the day goes when you are being creative!

A little love

I finally managed to get back in the craft room today. January has been such a crazy month, it seems like the days are getting shorter, not longer. This is a card that I made for a sketch challenge, but also for a swap with a group of ladies in a technique class I attend once a month.

My new baby!

Tonight, after finally getting back on track following our Vegas vacation and the flu bug that followed, I got to play with my new baby. My Canon Rebel XTI which I am LOVING!!! This is the grain elevator at the edge of town. Growing up in the Maritimes, grain elevators were a foreign concept until we moved to Alberta. They are quickly becoming things of the past and this one was rescued and moved to it's current location when the railway pulled out of town.
