My one little word for 2024 is "FAMILY".    This picture was taken over Thanksgiving when I had both of my kids together.   My daughter and family live here in town so I can see them all the time but my son lives in Dallas.   I did go there in June for a visit this last year and then he was here for Thanksgiving.   This year I will go to see all of them again in May because my oldest grandson graduates from High School and then they will all be here for Christmas this year.   But I'm going to do my best to get everyone together over the summer.    I just love it when we can all be together.

I made this layout for my chronological Thanksgiving album.    I'll probably use the picture or one similar two more times, one for each of my kids.

I'll be entering this at  "SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF"  for the January challenge #121.

Thanksgiving Turkey


I made this layout for my son's family album.   This is him making his famous friend turkey for Thanksgiving.    Covered with a Cajun rub, injected with a great marinade and now going into the hot peanut oil.     It was so good.

I used the sketch for January from  "THROUGH THE EYES OF ROCHELLE SPEARS SCRAPBOOKING"   She always has a great sketch and I'll be keeping this one to use again.

Then I am combining this for the January Scrappy Friends Challenge using the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge at   "SCRAP WITH STACY".    I did the center row across, Number(s), Tag & Two Photos.

Santas All Over


These are some of the Santas that sit around our home over the Christmas holidays.  My collection keeps growing.     I made this layout using the sketch and twist at Challenge #682 at "LASTING MEMORIES".  The twist was to use a die cut or punch,   My title is a die cut and a punch for the snowflake.
