happy thursday!!

i am behind in my once-a-week posting!! life is just going so fast and it is so hard to get everything done in a day, besides all the normal life things and running a child care business from home!! oh to have a life of just scrappin... {a girl can dream can't she??!}

the weather in the midwest turned off chilly quickly but is supposed to warm back up over the next couple of days. i like brisk weather, NOT cold weather, that is if i get to custom order what i want!! ;)

i have been busy again doing layouts for our family albums. mostly just scrappin the everyday life that we live, isn't that what it is all about anyway?? this past weekend was a very full one for david and i. on saturday we headed to the apple butter festival in kimmswick, missouri. the weather was perfect. we shopped in all of the vendor tents and in all of the local shops. we ate yummy festival foods {gigantic corn dog, homemade potato chips called ribbon potatoes-long continuous chips!!, and chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick-yummy doesn't adequately describe how good all this food was!!} then on sunday after church we headed up to his family's farm to see the progress on his parents' new house being built. we then went to the cemetary, drove through the county and headed back home. it was another wonderful fall day. we took tons of photos...more scrappin material!!

i hope that you are in the midst of a wonderful week and finding much to be grateful for and that you are writing it down and keeping track of those gratitudes. a couple of my latest entries...
*reading books with taylor
*quiet alone time to think & create
*receiving messages from good friends~denise & sonja
*a beautiful day in calhoun county with david

there are so many and i have so much to be grateful for!! don't forget to write them down so that you can remember to thank God for His blessings!!!

okay, time to share some creations~have a wonderful day!!

3 vintage tags that i created for one of the 12 weeks of Christmas challenge at the Mosy Scrapper. i loved this project!! i used the lyrics to an elton john/bernie taupin song titled "I Need You To Turn To". each verse inspired each of the three tags. i created an altered book to hold the tags. love this!!

the following two layout are a new size for me {6 X 12} this is from a day trip to kimmswick, missouri for the apple butter festival...
