Hi all....this week has been as crazy as planned plus some. Some of you know my Grandma passed away this Wednesday. She has been in poor health for some time and we all knew the day would come. She was 81 and we were fortunate to be able to go see her on Tuesday and then she went down hill fast after that. But that morning, she was chipper and visited with us. That was great.
Here is a picture of her and McKinley from the end of Sept. at my Grandpa's birthday party. So now, the weekend will be full of bustle as well, with family coming and happenings on Sunday and the funeral Monday.

I did want to post tho, and send Holiday Wishes to you all. I've been popping on here and reading my SBS Sisters blog and will take more time for comments next week. I do hope that everyone has safe travels and a joyous time with family and friends.

Monday this week, was our Stampin'Up! Christmas party. We made these cute lil stars - well, they look funny really, b/c they are off kilter, but they are cute on the tree huh? And we used the Prints Designer Series paper, which I hadn't really looked at but I love it now!! Too bad I didn't think about it in Nov. when it was all on sale. :(

We also made some Snowman Poop bags which I gave to RC before I could take a pic. These tho are the cards I got in the swap and then the new Scrapping papers for my exchange gift.
Then Tuesday was a super mail day. I got my Bellas from Em - Thanks Em!! I got Clickabella, Ipodabella, MWAHabella, Hitchedabellafellla and some Doodles for Daniel flowers and the Giggle word. I did go down Wednesday night and color some to relax, but I'll save that for another day.
Then Chris Mott also sent me some fun images of DiplomaBella, and some Elzybells! They are soooo stinkin' cute!! So I can't wait to play more with them!! I also love the little owls!! Fun stuff huh?
Then I needed a Thank You card for a good friend of mine. When I saw Rockabella the wheels starting turning. I used up some Chipboard and DP from WRMemory Keepers. I love it!! And I think Tangii will too!
OK, so a super long post, but it's gotta last you all awhile. I'll see you all after Christmas...have a wonderful day!!
