Almost Thanksgiving...

Only a couple more days. We'll be spending it over at Lal's with my mom this year.

Today I hung out over at my mom's for a bit. Lal was over there and we went over to Crossroads. I got some of the Bazzill blingie rubons and a new swatchbook and the BG Figgy Pudding...all 1/2 off:)

Last Sunday I went by Michael's and picked up these awesome 12x12 baskets for only $2!!! My intentions were not to use them for that reason, but when I saw my papers would fit in there, I was psyched:) Now I'm wishing I had picked up more than just four. I grabbed mine on the way into the store (they were in one of those big bins out front) and by the time I walked back out, the bin was CLEANED out!!!

So I came home and reorganzied my area some. I updated my space pic here on my blog so you can see the baskets I am talking about:)

We took the kids to see the Bee Movie on Sunday as well...very funny:) I love Jerry Seinfeld.

We cropped on Saturday and I got four LOs done. We got there about 3 or so and I stayed until about 9:30. Adriana came out too, so they stayed a little later. Lal got 8 LOs done!!!

Here's what I got done:
I actually dug into my stash and used some of my older papers for this one; some Daisy D's French Market, Gypsy and I think I even used a sheet of Attic Heirloom. The butterfly is an Autmn Leaves stamp I stamped on cardstock and then cut out. The title is a Daisy D's rubon. I traced some of the Cosmo Cricket flourish thingies from my paper pack onto thin chipboard, then cut them out and painted with MM paint. I also used my Scribbles on this one and a Prima Sprite.
This one was inspried by a LO I saw on the CK site. It's a pic of me and my little cousin a couple weeks back at a party for his son. This is right before they moved to El Paso for his new job as a border patrol. I used Elsie Riley papers and cardstock Trinkets, some buttons and just plain textured cardstock.

This one was inspired by a LO I saw on 2 Peas. It's a pic of Victoria at the park sitting on the bench with the statue:)...textured cardstock, Bazzill edge cardstock, Primas...Sprites, daisies and some of the roundy petal ones:). I stamped with my HS stamp and cut out the title. Used adhesive gems and some Bobbin Ribbon that looks like a ruler. The lace looking stuff I got at the Dollar Tree. It's paper and it's adhesive backed. I GOTTA get some more of that stuff:) 7 Gypsies journaling card, chipboad flourish and some sheer polka dot ribbon.

I got the idea for this one out of a mag...can't remember which one. I used all Foof A La papers, 7 Gypsies journaling card and arrow turns and some rubons from one of the Swatchbooks. I stamped the heart with one of my Autumn Leaves stamps and then cut it out and mounted on cardstock.This is one I worked on a couple weeks back. It's a pic of Victoria on Halloween. I was just dying to use these Rusty Pickle Pirate Princess papers. The flowers are Doodlebug and DCWV and the letter stickers are Doodlebug Simply Sweet. The skulls are from the Creative Imaginations Skull/Crossbones kit.

My papers came in Monday!!! I ordered my Zoe papers from 2 Peas cause I couldn't find them locally. I can't wait to use them:)

I also ordered some of the Noel line:) TFL
