Tag You're It!! Top 20 Crafty items in 2011

Hey scrappy friends!!  I've had such a busy FUN weekend!!

Friday we went to my brothers house for my nephew/godson's birthday party.  We got there late (NOT typical of me) but I had a ton of errands to run before going :(  We had a great time.

Then Saturday, Kasi and I attended the baptism of MAX.  He's my BFF's son and he is so yummy and delicious!  The boys could not make it because Damian had a baseball game :(    It was the most beautiful baptism I have ever attended.  The pastors message was powerful and the ceremony was quick.  After the event, they had lunch at a beautiful restaurant.  My friend Tery is very crafty so she made all her invitations, keepsakes, flower arrangements and even the banner.  EVERYTHING was just PERFECT!!

Today after attending church with my friend Dayi, we went to my cousins house for her daughters birthday party.  Got to play with my baby nephew (he's soooo YUMMY).    I'm all partied OUT hahaha

My super sweet sister Christina (Creations with Christina) tagged me on a video of your top 20 crafty items for 2011.  I had SO much fun creating this video.  I'm sure I left out tons of things but hey, it was supposed to be ONLY 20.....I think I went over 20 hahahahaha

Anywho, here is the video.  Hope you enjoy!!!

Hugs, T

BOO!!!  I'm back hahahahahaha!!!  The start of 2012 has been FABULOUS!!  My FIL is better, I feel GREAT and my amazing hubby and wonderful children are doing awesome!!  We are so blessed and grateful for everything the Lord gives us on a daily basis!!!

December was hard.  We even had to call rescue for my FIL on Christmas night because his sugar dropped to 15!!  It was VERY scary.  The kids were crying, my husband was a wreck and after it all, I was drained.  Trying to be the strong person in the family can take a toll on you.  The creation of my December Daily was put on hold for a few weeks.  I took pictures every day and jotted down things but this past Saturday I was finally able to complete it.

Here is the video of my December Daily.  I was going to add pictures but it's just to many pages.

Some of the supplies I used:
ALL my picture Storyboards and most of the die cuts:  KERRI BRADFORD
Papers:  MM Mistletoe, Teresa Collins Christmas Home; My Minds Eye Lost & Found Christmas
Lots of misc trims, twine & Ali Edward Stamps; card stock from PTI, Doodlebug Page protectors, Prima canvas album, grundge board numbers and letters, frosted acetate, Hambly Studio overlays and lots of Silhouette cuts

This year I will be creating a "weekly" Project Life album for my family.  Taking the weekly approach will be easier for me instead of doing daily entries.  I will share some weeks as I go.  This album will also consist of some scrapbook layouts which I will incorporate throughout.  You can find a video of my first layout for Project Life HERE.

Alright friends, I'll be back soon....I PROMISE!!!!

Hope you all have a blessed week!!

Hugs, T

(PS:  I read this in the new Kari Jobe CD I purchased today and it says:  "Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.  You will find Him when you search for Him with all your heart.  Nothing is too hard or difficult for the Lord.  He cares for you and everything you're walking through. "    WOW....SO TRUE!!!  I LOVE her's so inspirational!! )
