Pajama Party and a few Papertry Ink In the Meadow Christmas Cards

225_1 (3)-1

Our family had our 2nd Annual Week before Christmas Pajama Party last weekend. Super comfy and relaxing and pretty darn hysterical too. Check out my brother in the Sock Monkey pj’s in the back row, complete with Sock Monkey feet too, of course.  I was there when he tried those things on. He even came out of the dressing room to show us!!!  That photo shoot nearly ended up on YouTube…but I behaved….

Here’s a photo of my daughter’s newest addition to her family too. A gorgeous mini Golden Doodle. Her name is Bella…and she could not be anymore precious!

On to the Christmas Cards…which are pretty much all Papertrey Ink.

The Papertry Ink, In the Meadow dies were used for silhouettes.

Less than two weeks till Christmas. So…are you ready? I’m soooooooooo not.  I was just telling my daughter last night, that I need a pause button. Wouldn’t that be so cool? Just think how much you could get done if only there was just a pause button….kind of like Samantha had on Bewitched, right? Winking smile
My tag today was inspired by all the gorgeous Tim Holtz, 12 Days of Christmas Tags out there in blog land. So much amazing inspiration!
The Pine Cones were of course made with McGill Paper punches and this tutorial.

Happy Holidays

P1030926-1 copy
Can you say BUSY?! Oh my!! I have a list as long as Santa’s of things to do and no time to do them. The hustle and bustle is certainly here, isn’t it? I was whining to my hubby the other day about all the things that I need to do for the holidays and his comment was, “you know you love it”. The best part of that story? He lived…. Winking smile
