Morning peoples!

A good morning to you! So how was your Thanksgiving? Did you eat alot? Our Thanksgiving was wonderful; Lots of food, family and fun for us~ We gathered at my Mom's and arrived there at 6 am with the turkey. We spent the morning preparing for the feast.
Here are few pics from our day.
Besides eating we also got our Mom's Christmas decorations out and added the magic of Christmas to her home. See how beautiful her trees were, when we were done. So now Mom can kick back and enjoy her gorgeous trees.
Did you do any shopping? I did some digi shoppin' and that's about it. I didn't brave the craziness of the stores though. I did that once, and decided I'd never do it again. There's too many wackos out there, that push and throw stuff just to get a good bye. It's just not my idea of shopping fun. But, I did do some digi shoppin' from the comfort of my home. Here are a couple of things I picked up. I can't wait to scrap with them! This alpha and kit is from BCD over at Digi Scrapper Brasil; I just luv her creations! She is an amazing designer!
I aso picked up this adorable kit by Jennifer Barrette from over at Elemental Scraps. I saw it when it first hit the store, and I wanted it bad, but didn't bye it. Woke up this morning and scooped it up! LOL!
And I must tell you about the huge sales going on over at Plucky Pear, in case you haven't checked it out yet!!! I am on Creations by Rachel's Creative Team and Late Night Scraps, but if I wasn't, I would be shoppin' this sale! Here are a number of Rachael's specials; you have until the 30th to shop these prices! So go!!! Go now!!!!
Here is the latest collab by Creations by Racheal and Late Night Scraps; isn't it beautiful?! And with all the specials going on in the shop, it's a steal! :)
Here is one of my LOs, scrappin' this kit. It's perfect for family pics, isn't it?
Oh and here is Creations by Rachael's November Grabbag. You can find it over at Gotta Pixel and get peak at what's in it here.
And here are two of my creations using the fun and funky kit!
And lastly, here is a scrap I completed yesterday using an Addon to Bientot Noel by NNini-lolo Designs. You can find her designs at the French Frog. (This LO has not been uploaded to my galleries yet, thus it is not linked.)

Ties That Bind

Look what has hit the store sheleves over a Plucky Pear; "Ties That Bind!" It's a beautiful collab created by Creations by Rachael and Late Night Scraps. A family heritage kit without being overwhelmingly vintage. There are some vintage touches that will give a feeling of historical significance to your layouts without making it appear as if your entire family was born in 1892. Some fun and whimsical pieces and even some grunge to help scrap the modern family.

Happy Sunday!

Good Sunday morning to you all! I so hope your day if off to a wonderful start.

I awoke this morning too our little Missy Mae Oooops licking my face; she wanted me up! She is such a little sweetie!

It's been way busy lately... you know how life is. Squeezing this and that into your schedule... That's how it's been for me lately anyhow. I started my day off today with coffee and puter time; nice and relaxing. :) The rest of my day looks like this: Ironing, Emma's basketball game, and then off to see 2012! I'm so excited!!!

I wanted to share this pic I took yesterday. I took this out at my Mom's place; isn't it gorgeous?! A beautiful way to complete our day.

Okay, onto to digi stuff. Let's start with the new grab bag by Creations by Rachael!!! It's packed with funky, fun and color!!! It's totally me, all the way! It's so new I just downloaded it and haven't had a chance to scrap with it yet. But, thrust me, I will today!!! You can click on the image below to go directly to it, in the Gotta Pixel Shoppe! Oh, and it's only $3.00!!!

This here is a LO I completed for one of the Birthday Bash challenges going on over at Gotta Pixel. The challenge here was to use 20 buttons, and I pulled it off! :) You can find the challenge posted here: Week #3 Button Button Who has the Button. And remember, for each challenge you enter, your name is entered to win one of the grand prizes, which are amazing prizes!!!

This one here is a pic of my Emma and my Mom, using the the Gotta Pixel November Daily Download kit, "Life is Grand." The Daily Download provides you with pieces each day to a wonderful kit created by the awesome designers there. If you become a club member, the montly kit is yours for download right away. Yep! I'm a member and it's a great deal! You can check out club membership here. I also created this one for a challenge over at Gotta Pixel, this was for Brenda's Blueprint challenge for the week.

This here is a pic of my Emma and Jenna from last weekend's adventure and I scrapped it for the Elemental Scraps Surprise Challenge 11/06. It was a color challenge to use the products created by the site designers where they create using the same color pallete. I really luv how this LO turned out... fun and whimsical, just like our weekend. This was my first challenge participation over there and I plan to join in on some more. There designer's products pulled me into the shop, and then I found their forum. I was welcomed with open-arms and I'm really enjoying it there. A nice bunch of ladies, that's for sure.

My next two LOs I created using a new collab by Creations by Rachael and Late Night Scraps from Plucky Pear Designs. It's "Ties That Bind," and it's amazingly beautiful kit! My LOs are proof of it's beauty! It will hit the store shelves on Monday, November 23, 2009.

Well, I guess that's about it for today... I gotta go!
But, I'll be back soon, with more adventures of Laurie's World. :)
