We have gotten through Christmas

And now are moving on to New Years.  Mine was not so memorable, didn't spend time with family, we did that at Thanksgiving and now we live a bit far from them.  We didn't take the coach out this year so it was just us.  Also, hubby is very sick, will be trying to see the dr today.
Meanwhile I had plenty of time to play and scrap. I got a challenge done that I had been meaning to do. the Studio had one called Surprise me challenge, the surprise is the challenge is different each month, this time we were suppose to do a layout showing more then one generation. I had the perfect photo, taken when I was 3 and my grandmother had a family reunion at her house. Since she had 12 brother and sisters we were a pretty big family, but  they are not all in this one, some of the SD/Iowa family were not there, we lived in Los Angeles at the time where some of the family had migrated.
I used Snickerdoodle Designs kit, Outside My Window .
And there I am, over on the left bottom. If you are interested, you can find the challege here . I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and if I don't post before, have a safe and sane new years.

Better late then never

Boy am I late, but there has just been so much going on I lost track of time.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We had 2 of our girls with their families here for Thanksgiving and the 3rd daughter and grandson flew up from Texas where they moved recently and we all spent the weekend in Las Vegas.
Anyway, sooo much going on with everyone right now. All the scrapbooking designers and stores are giving away goodies for Christmas and designing great new kits for Christmas, the ones I work for are no different.
Karen (Snickerdoodle Designs)  is giving an advent item away each day until the 25th. You might want to check that out, they sure are cute. She has a new kit on sale every day that matches up with the goodie and it stays for 2 days.

Amanda Thorderson has a new Christmas kit out called Christmas Tea, as usually, it's gorgeous.
She has that on sale right now.. Here is the preview of this months wallpaper.

Just click on the preview to download. You will notice I don't put a calendar on my wallpaper, that is because I use Rainlender, it's an awesome interactive calendar that sits on your desktop. If you'd like a calendar or even if you would just like to play, please visit Amanda's Calendar challenge at Digitals.
Her mini kit includes this months calendar and it's easy to put on the wallpaper.
As usual, I made this in 3 sizes, hopefully one will work for you. 
If I don't post again this month, please have a wonderful Holiday.
