It is New Years Eve

....this year we are spending a quiet evening at home! We are having a large dinner at our house for New Year's Day though.
I am really enjoying my time off of work with the girls. Our tree is put away and I am working on cleaning.
I have some scrapping things to are several projects I did using the current sugar kit at Scrapdango
here is a card I made out of an envelope. I folded the envelope and stamped on the front. I attached the enveloped to a piece of cardstock. The envelope opens up and that is where I put a gift card.

December Daily journal catch up

Okay, so this year...I was really gifts were almost all bought before December came...we decorated the weekend after Thanksgiving.....I took the girls pictures for our Christmas cards...and sent those that weekend too...and best of all my mom took all the presents to wrap for me!!! wooohooooo!!! So this year I decided I would document our 25 days of December. (Course I am going to add all of those things I did before at the back...because it has been pretty relaxing and enjoyable so far....However..I am a little behind on the keeping the daily journal....but I thought I would post what I have so far!
