Hi all!! Well, I have been working on scrappin' last year's Christmas pics and I am almost finished! I thought I would share one today that really has become a favorite of mine. Now, there is no stamping, and lots of different scrappy products from all kinds of companies, so if you have any questions, just hollah! I love this one because of the meaning behind it - we all kind of get busy buying presents, wrapping, making sure we take care of everyone's material needs, but sometimes we forget the focus of family and how lucky we are to share special times with those we love. When I took these pics of Tony with the kids last year, it really struck a chord - this is what it is all about! Family, celebrating the birth of our Lord, and each other! So, this is what this layout is about! Have a fabulous weekend, all!! Today is my sister's, mom's and Zach's last day here so I will be spending time with them - I will be sad when they leave, I have really enjoyed them being here!! I will not get to see Zach again until Summer, which makes me sad, but I was so fortunate to have him home for these last three weeks - oh, how I love that boy! I will be back tomorrow with something fun to share! Till then!!!

Happy New Year all!!! Today marks the first challenge from Stamp Something of the New Year so it's fitting that the challenge is New Somethings - stamp with something new you received, a new technique, anything that is new to you!! So, I chose to stamp with my brand new stamp set from the new Catty being released on the 18th of January called Just Buzzin' By - isn't it CUTE??!!!
