We are fortunate to have two of our granddaughters spending the night tonight: 11 year old Kaycee (who is staying until Sunday) and 21-month-old Anna. We just watched a stirring showing of Anna's favorite, "Wow! Wow! Wubzy" and Kaycee is waiting patiently for her turn at the computer. Tomorrow, if the weather is good, we will venture downtown for the annual Christmas Walk. The two day event includes sales and sometimes cookies or cider in the downtown stores, the tree in the courthouse square will be lit for the season, and the city puts lights on the little trees along the main street. There are carolers and musicians strolling around, and this year there will be children's stories in the theater group's newly renovated building. We may even get to talk with Santa or ride the trolley bus up and down Main Street.
This past week has been a slow one for scrapping. I had to skip one of the two weekly THAW challenges at Willow Traders, but I did do this one for "beauty". The flowers are a bouquet that my third child, Jeff, sent to me for Mother's Day 2008.
I've scrapped black and white photos with colored patterned paper before; but this is the first time I have scrapped color photos with black and white papers. I like the effect! The butterfly was salvaged off an old shirt; I added bling antennae.
And the countdown continues for youngest daughter's April wedding. The engagement announcement and photo went to the two local newspapers today. This photo isn't the one we sent, but it's my favorite out of a total of 154 photos:
And yes, I will be scrapping some of those photos!
Have a great weekend!
