Scrapping the Music and much more...

OOOOHHHH, I have a new favorite song, Uncle Kracker's Smile. It is my #1 on my regular playlist if you'd like to hear it! (just pause the Christmas music). Or stop over to Scrapping the Music this week and play along with us.. there are so many things you can do with this song. Here is my layout!!! Journaling strips read:
You're better then the best, I'm lucky just to linger in your light,
Cooler then the flip side of my pillow, that's right, completely unaware,
nothing can compare to where you send me, you make me smile like the sun,
fall out of bed, sing like a bird, dizzy in my head, spin like a record, crazy on a Sunday night,
You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breathe, shine like gold, buzz like a bee,
just the thought of you can drive me wild, don't know how I lived without you,
cuz everytime that I get around you,
I see the best of me inside your eyes,
OOHHH, you make me smile!!!

I used paint, glimmer mist, randome things and created this Anything goes type of layout while listening to the song... I was dancing too! I sponged the journaling strips to get a distressed effect and match my color scheme. I hope you smile!!!

On Saturday, Grammy and I took the kids to Giant to see Santa, they went right up to Santa and said hello, we gracious and adorable. They told Santa what they wanted and had a blast.

Jeremy watched the kids so we met him there with Makenna and I was able to get 3/4 cousins with Santa. She wasn't too keen on Santa and needed Bryce to stand by his side and then she stood by Bryce. (Reminds me of my favorite picture of me and my sister with Santa when we were little... I am smiling... Catherine is crying....)

Then, Grammy, She She, Pappy, Jean, Jenn, Randy, Justin, Faith, Tyler, Gavin and I played Bingo to try to win some toys. Well, it was so much fun. Here is what my cards looked like. It was intense. She She was the lucky winner and went home with a monetary prize... Faith won a door prize.
Gavin and Justin with Bingo dots on their noses.
Jean and Pappy deep in thought during Bingo. They are so cute together.

When we got home, it had snowed and snowed... all Clara wanted to do was play in it... she was all dolled up and just sat herself down in the snow. She does it every year... 1st thing when she hits the snow she either sits in it or does a snow angel. So they had a snowball fight...
It was great packing snow!
Snow much fun!

Today, I taught my coworkers how to make some Christmas gift card holders, lottery ticket holders, and tags. I had a blast with the ladies and got a few of them "hooked" on scrapping! We said we were going to make it a tradition! Can't wait until I can host it at the cabin!
