♥♥ FAMILY CHRISTMAS PICTURE / CARDS ♥♥

YAY!!  I'm so super excited.   This week has been crazy at work and hectic at home BUT, I manged to squeeze in some time to create our family Christmas cards using one of the freebies Becky Higgins offered on her blog about a week ago!!!  They are ALL beautiful but our picture fit perfectly into this design ♥♥♥:


The only thing I added was the "2012" using Photoshop Elements.

The family photo was taken at my nephews baptism last weekend in front of the church.  It was the perfect occasion to take it since we were all dressed nice.  (OMG do you see my kids.....they are almost my height AND I'm wearing heels yikes!!!!)  Anywho, you can find the freebies HERE

I ordered my prints from Persnickety Prints.    Their customer service is AMAZING and shipping is extremely fast!! 

December 1st is tomorrow....you know what that means......DECEMBER DAILY TIME!!!!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
Hugs and blessings,

PROUD PARENTS AND MORE!!!

When the kids started school in August, we all prepared for an extremely hard year.  Kasi would start her IB program in 6th grade, which includes ALL Advanced courses, and Damian would start his ALL day Gifted program in 5th grade.  It has been quite an adventure so far....projects, reports, trips to the library and lots and lots of studying but in the end, it has paid off the first nine weeks.  We are such proud parents!!!  Both Kasi and Damian made the Honor Roll - wooooo hooooo!!!!  It's difficult enough to make the Honor Roll let alone making it in advanced and gifted courses.  We are flabergasted!!!!!

Since Kasi is in Middle school, she no longer receives certificates, but here is a picture of Damian....ALL SMILES!!!!


This weekend we will be taking a little break from school to decorate our home.  Hubby and I have taken the boxes down from the attic and we have positioned the tree where it will go.  Last night Kasi and I strung the lights while the boys studied math.  Here is a picture of my Kasi acting silly with the tree skirt lol:


After the boys did their math thing, they started creating paracord bracelets.  Hubby had seen these and wanted one so he checked out YouTube and learned how to make them.  They created father/son matching bracelets...they are so cute!!!  You see....even hubby is creative lol


Lastly, this past weekend was my nephews baptism.  What a special occasion!!!  The keepsake my sister-in-love chose for each family was this gorgeous cross ornament....LOVE the idea!!!  I just HAD to add it to the tree this morning ♥♥


I am so blessed to have the family I have.  We have our ups and downs, but in the end, we are family!! 

Hope you all have a spectacular day!!

Hugs, T

Project Life 2013!!!

Thanks to the Black Friday sale over at Amazon, I finally picked up these two white Signature Album from Becky Higgins.  I want my 2013 albums to have a crisp clean look.


I've already added 26, Design A page protectors to each album.  Design A is my FAVORITE!!!  I also joined the Studio Calico, Monthly Project Life Kit club and I'm super excited to start receiving it in January.  I will be adding Becky's freebies to the spine as I did for my 2012 albums.  Love the freebies becky has to offer on her blog.... you can find them HERE.  I created my 2012 Christmas cards using one of the new templates and thanks to Persnickety Prints, I placed my order and will be mailing them to family and close friends next week.  I will also post a picture of it on my blog in the next couple days ♥♥

As usual, I will be posting periodic videos on my YouTube channel with Project Life updates. 

December is right around the corner and I'm so looking forward to be spending lots of quality time with my hubby and kids, my parents, my father in law, my brothers and sisters, my brother and sisters in love and my neices and nephews.  It's such a blessing to have each and every one of them in my life.

Hugs and blessings to all,

SUPER CUTE 2013 DESKTOP CALENDAR AND EMAIL STATIONERY!!!

Wanted to share a couple things with my blog friends.....

First I just pre-ordered my 2013 desktop calendar from ECdesign on Etsy!!  YAY I'm super excited!!  This is the third year I purchase it and the designs are just adorable.  This year, the calendar helped me so much in organizing my Project Life album.  I wrote the Week # off to the side of each week and while crafting, I had it on my desk to refer back to the exact dates and weeks.  For my 2013 album, I plan on incorporating each month into my album.  They measure 4x6 so it will fit perfectly into the sleeves!!!  You can pre-order them HERE!!!   This is a picture of all the designs:



Elizabeth also has email stationery which can be found HERE.  Her graphic designs are just amazing.  For being one of the first five people to order her new 2013 desktop calendar, I won this special email stationery.  Can't wait to start using it.  This is the pattern I picked....I LOVE IT!!!!!


You can personalize it.  Mine says:  From: Teri Beri and at the bottom it has my blog information.

Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, T

SOME HALLOWEEN FUN!!!

I LOVE THE HALLOWEEN TRADITION!!

Every year, my sister Cristy and her family have a Halloween party.  They decorate their home and have lots of friends and family come over. 

Everyone starts arriving around 7pm and the moms take the kids Trick-or-Treating around 8pm while the dads hang out at home.  It's always a huge group and the kids have a blast collecting candy.  After that, we have pizza, cupcakes and enjoy each others company.

This year Damian was an FBI Agent (Oh so handsome - hee hee) and Kasi was an 80's girl....this TOTALLY brought back some AWESOME memories ♥♥

Here are some pictures.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!!  LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Hugs and blessings, T

(PS: I'll be back soon with Project Life updates - YAY!!)
