Catch Up





I have a new Grandson! Mason Lee Smith was born on Nov 25th at 2:23pm. He weighed 7lb 14oz's and was 21 inches long. And he is beautiful...of course! These two pix are of the proud parents, sweet Tina and my son Matt. He waited a long time to be a daddy. And is so proud of his son. I already hear him say "That's my boy"! All went well and that Friday wasn't 'Black Friday' for us! lol

I've finally gotten back into my scrapping. I've moved some of my things into what is now our 'spare' room. But some are still in the livingroom. So...sometimes I have to stop and go fetch something to finish my project. Not the best way to craft...but as they say...it is what it is. Eventually I hope to get everything moved.
The layout is for a Challenge at Let's Scrap.ning. They send me an envelope with some goodies in it and we have to use it all on a layout. This is the 3rd time I've played along. It's fun to see whats comes in the mail and then figure out how to use everything. We all get the same supplies, but all of the projects are so different.
I used some old pix from a family Chritmas when the boys were about 5 and 8. The pix brought back some good memories.

I've also started making cards again, and am making Christmas gifts too. I Have to wait on my Dec. check to finish buying the necessary supplies for some of my planned gifts. So eventually I'll post pix of the finished projects here.
I'm going to try to do better about posting here. I got out of the habit, so I have to work at it a bit until it becomes a habit again.
Thanks for checking in with me.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. And I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, or Happy Hannakah or what ever you celebrate.
