I have some photos to share with you - she had her first school dance on Friday evening. She is in fourth grade, and her dad and I thought it might be a little to soon to be having school dances. But we found out that it was mostly playing games and participating in a raffle, with some dancing thrown in there just for fun. Here she is - all dressed up and ready for the dance:
and when she got home, Anne was so excited because she won a raffle prize - a movie basket!! With her favorite food of all times - popcorn! YAY Anne!
In case your wondering, we finally did take our tree and Christmas decor down yesterday. We like to leave it up for Epiphany, but the time just got away from us this year. Lucky for us, we have an artificial tree given to us by John's parents 4 years ago when they moved into an apartment. I was very surprised to find lots and lots of "fake needles" that needed to be cleaned up after we put our tree away this year. I thought one of the perks of having an artificial tree was no clean up. Boy was I wrong! We took decorations down, packed boxes, cleaned, vacuumed and put boxes away mostly all day yesterday. Whew!
And now on to this week's Color Me Scrappy challenge: Challenge #25! It's Team A's turn, but when I saw the awesome color scheme, I wanted to participate using some of my Christmas photos!!
Here are the colors:
The twist is to use the word "link" in your title or journaling.
And my layout:
I used the photos that I took at my mom's home on 12/23/12,
when my nephews and Anne decorated their gingerbread houses.
So . . . if you have Christmas photos (or any pictures for that matter!) that need to be scrapped and want a fun challenge to participate in (and the chance to win a prize!!) head on over to
