Sarah tried out for her school musical as she has for the last two years. She has been trying for a larger role every year! (that girl has drive!)
Well she originally wanted to be Lumineire or Mrs. Potts. I convinced her to try out for all female parts just to show she was willing to sing any part (and that girl loves to sing!)

WELL she will be playing BELLE!!!!!! my baby girl will be BELLE!

and Meagan not wanting to be outshined has been working extra hard at her dance/kick squad for her high school and made the gold team 2 times in a row. They have to try out for each performance! and for being only about 5-2 she has one of the highest kicks on the team!!!!!

Creating over the Holidays

I always think it is hard to create over the Christmas season. There is always so much to do! Scrapbook Heaven Hosted a month long C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S Crop. Every few days a new challenge was posted. I was able to complete all but one of them! That's 8 scrappy things created during the busy holiday season! that has to be a record for me! and this doesn't include the gift albums I made! This layout was created for the A (AD) challenge using the December kit from Scrapbook Heaven. This embossed cardstock, the flower and that oh so cute striped ribbon came in the kit! The stamps were available in their store, that is until I bought the last set :D Hope you had a great Christmas!

Another card from the crop

What I loved most about this crop is I challenged myself to use up some of this paper pads I had stacked up! I loved this SEI paper and think it makes a very classy card!!! I need to stop taking pictures in front of my orange walls tho it throws a orange tint over the whole photo. We are staying inside today in the midst of a blizzard. Not a lot of snow but a lot of wind is blowing what snow we do have.
