The Best Gift Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone! 14 days until Christmas are you ready? We are here at the stout house! So excited! Anyway, there is a new challenge over at the noel blog....check it out! She is giving away not 1 but 2 of these beauties!!!! Yowza! I'm so excited!!!!! :D I drew inspiration from two people for my layout the first is Leah on the design team....she scrapped an item she got a while ago but had never scrapped....that's what I decided to do.  The other inspiration is from my all time FAVORITE scrapper Virginia.... she used the Dear Diary Kit (hurry only 1 left).  I have not had any time to scrap with it yet so I used mostly stuff from there....my paper is bo bunny flutter butter willow....LOVE that green! And then I just used brown cardstock to back mat my picture.


I took a pink glitter pen and doodled on my letters...love them! Brown thickers from Dear Diary.

I LOVE the dimension on these flowers! To die for! :D Also from Dear Diary!

December Daily: Day 4

Today we spent the day planning and preparing....planning some christmas activities we want to do this season and that I especially want to do with my kiddos and my gma! The preparing was preparing to rearrange my living room and try to open up the space.  Other than that we just kinda hung out until dark.  My gma and I took the kids to the Christmas Light Parade and it was so much fun! We froze our buns off but I LOVED it and so did the kiddos and my gma.  Jackson was in awe at the firetrucks....good thing there wasn't a fire in the surrounding 3 counties....EVERY single firetruck was in the parade! Anyway-I am going to try and get caught up on my blog posts today and post day 5 also.....but for now...here is day 4!






For not doing too much I sure had a lot of pages for day 4! :D That's ok...I am loving this documentation!

December Daily: Day 3

Day 3 ended up being a busy day.  I only documented savannah wearing her christmas t shirt for the first time and after an afternoon of shopping and such we discovered fried peanut butter sandwiches! Yummy! :D

December Daily: Day 2

I think the most work of this album is taking pictures every day of what I did to my actual album.  The documenting and decorating of the album itself is easy peasy....Oh well...it's 25 days right? We can do anything for 25 days! Without further adu....here is day 2 in my december daily:



We mainly just lounged and hung out today! We were recovering from our long trip! Phew...glad that's over with!

December Daily: Day 1

Happy December Days! WOW! Where has the year gone? Holy cow I can't believe it's almost Christmas.  Anyway, as I have posted before I am participating in the December Daily with Ali Edwards and on the Noelmignon.com website in the message board! (sorry I didn't link those....i'm exhausted from my trip and just plain lazy at this point.) Which also explains my not so creativity on day 1, however I did not want to fall behind in posting.....I may post day 2 and 3 tomorrow night. Here is day 1:

I am so happy this is my first year to participate in this! I had no idea this concept even existed and we picked up my gma this week in new mexico to come spend christmas with us....what a way to kick off the month and a GREAT way to document memories while she is here!
