In honor of Bennett's 1st day at the new job!!


Hi everybody! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.....we hosted my family - it actually was pretty OK. I had several days to prep and my mom kept the kids out of my hair on Thurs so I could do all the crucial stuff....plus my awesome grandmother - also named Meg - came over and it was great for her to see 4 of her 7 great-grandkids. Then, the 5 of us got Fri - Sun to hang out......personally, I know that we have SOOOO much to be grateful for - we have each other - after that, nothing else really matters.

It snowed here in metro Atlanta today!! Cool...kinda rare - especially for pre-Feb......

Today my dear hubby, Bennett, started his new job!! We are so excited - as a computer consultant, he had been traveling on and off (mostly on!) for the better part of the last 4 years....this job is less than 5 miles from the house! He's now with a local boutique consulting firm - he's the new director of their business intelligence practice (OK, I know...the geek stuff is gettin' heavy). In honor of his new job and the wonderful opportunities for our family that it brings....I made a new paper kit! It's Bennett's favorite color - PURPLE...and of course, it has glitter and fleur de lis...also faves. These 12 papers include grunge, glitter, snowflakes, glittered edges circles, fleur de lis, diamonds, damask, flourished edges, an entire 12x12 glitter sheet, and other goodies.

Click HERE for part 1 (the first 6 papers) and then HERE2 for part 2 (the next 6).

I do have to give a shout out for some of the awesome overlays (found on DigiFree - a daily addiction) that I used to help create this paper kit...in no particular order, they are:

TotallyD Overlay Grunge01
Scrapfiends Wallpaper Overlay04
Fryske's Harlequin 2
LynneSimmons Textured Overlays Grunge1
Beth Long ColdWinter SnowflakeEdge
lvd goingincircles001
05_O_Edge Flourishes2

That, to me, is the best part of the digi scrap world - we can share our creative talents and from that create things that are greater than the sum of the parts.....wow...deep...careful, the English major is showing! Anyway - Happy December 1st!
