January's Gossamer Blue kit and some Nifty Pixels sketches

 Got my new Gossamer January kit and since it's all about LOVE I used some pictures I've been wanting to scrap of the kids who are getting married this summer.  First up I used one of the new sketches over at Nifty Pixel #38.2. 

Then I used another sketch from the Nifty Pixel #27.3 for this layout of the two of them from their trip to Las Vegas for Christmas.  Maria's parents took them and they had a wonderful time.

The last one is using some of the pictures they took to use for engagement announcements.

Case File #151 over at CSI

It's SOOOOO COLD here!  I hate COLD.  I can't make myself get out and run if it's not at least 50 degrees so I feel like yuck!  Going to have to get Charlie to bring in the treadmill and see if I can make myself use it.  I hate the treadmill and in fact am planning to sell it but have been rethinking it with this cold weather.  AND knowing we are moving up to even colder temperatures soon I may have to change my mind on that.  Kim and Madison (my daughter and Granddaughter) come in tomorrow for Madi's doctor appointment so will meet them for lunch.  I have spent my last two days off meeting with friends.  LOVE friend time and am starting to get a little nervous about leaving all of them before long.  Work has picked back up and the unit's full again.  I have an orientee (experienced nurse but new to our unit) so it hasn't been bad.  Told her the other day I really like the concept of a team assignment!  Although true to form she has had submersion orientation because I really am the trauma draw!  We have seen only a very few bedside CT scans (it's new with the new hospital) and since she started three weeks ago she and I have done three of the maybe four done on the unit!  
Here's my take for this weeks Case File over at CSI.  Loved these colors.  Jason had done this photo treatment to the picture of he and Maria and I loved it so much I decided to use it this week. Em's fabulous sketch was my inspiration and she picked my layout to put up at the Nifty Pixel together with the sketch!  Exciting!

 Then I still have paper left from my December Gossamer kit so used it for some of our Thanksgiving pictures!  They were almost fighting each other this year to have their picture made (???? after all the years of BEGGING!)

Since I just got my new Gossamer Kit you should be seeing more soon although I have to work three days this week (UGH!)

CSI Case File #15 plus my favorites from 2014

 First up is my take on the Current Case File #150.  Found these adorable pictures of Cason, my great-nephew to use for this and a Noel Mignon kit from two years ago that I had never used!  Working tomorrow so hoping that everyone stays safe tonight.  Had a wonderful lunch with my mother and sister today and exchanged Christmas presents.  Tonight we go for dinner with Jason and Maria and Maria's parents before they head back to Mexico.  They (including Jason) all went to Las Vegas for Christmas and had a wonderful time.  We went up to my oldest daughter's and to Charlie's oldest daughters to spend a couple of days since I just couldn't get enough time off to go with Jason and Maria and her family. 
 No for my favorite layouts from this last year.  Hope you enjoy!


Thanks for stopping by - wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year!

Gossamer Blue - December kit

Hope everyone is having a great week.  Worked Sunday and Monday.  My orientee (who is an experience nurse but has just been away for four years) started.  Of course I went for the sickest patient and so we had a busy busy day but she loved every minute!  She'll be with me again Saturday and then for the next few weeks until she gets the hang of everything again.  Almost done with Christmas shopping - now to wrap and figure out how I"m going to get everything everywhere.
  Got my Gossamer kit Monday and knocked out three layouts yesterday alone!  Love this kit!  This month the papers were especially yummy.  Here's the first three pages I did. First up is my granddaughter who took some awesome selfies of herself! 
'Next up is a photo I took of Jason and Maria during Thanksgiving festivities. 

Then finally is a layout I did of random pictures of Gavin this year.  Such a cutie pie!

CSI and Scrap 365-10

Well heading back to work tomorrow for two. Last week we were so slow there were only five assignments which in a unit as large as ours is AMAZING!  We don't take more than two patients each.  The census was really low.  AND they made me charge because I normally have a major black cloud over my head and can fill a unit up in a heartbeat but nothing - not one admission on my shift!  LOL!  Well here's my take for the Scrap 365-10 challenge over at CSI.  I used one of the prompts that asked what you liked to do on a spring day - for me it's ALWAYS about the beach!
We had a fun evening last night with Jason and Maria - they have re-opened a bowling alley near us and we all went up there and bowled a few games - haven't done that in YEARS!  Definitely need some brushing up on it though!

Thanks for stopping by!

Page Drafts

I was lucky enough to be asked to be a Guest Designer this month for Page Drafts and to get to work with one of Em's awesome sketches.  I used it to scrap some precious pictures of our grandson and great-granddaughter.  First up were the choices of sketches I got to use - these are the new Christmas releases and if you drop by Page Drafts you can see all the fabulous inspiration from their Design Team as well as their Guest Design Team. And I should also mention that the papers and embellishments I used came from a Noel Mignon kit (probably two years old) that I had never touched until now so I found treat after treat in there!

Thanks for stopping by!

More Gossamer and Thanksgiving Wishes

 Hope you all are having a Happy Thanksgiving!  My daughter comes in tomorrow morning - my son's already here and my other daughter with five grandkids will be here Friday.  We always have our Thanksgiving on Saturday  - started out to make things easier on married kids who needed to spend time with the other side of their families and now has just turned into our traditional time to have it.  Plus I always have to work some holidays and I usually work Thanksgiving and New Years so I can have Christmas off.  We are making do in this rental this year so trying to get some of the stuff cooked early as we  have a crappy stove and a small oven.  I was scheduled to work Thursday but I guess there were SOOO many people who requested Friday off (can people SERIOUSLY want to shop on that nightmare day???) that I was switched to Friday - not really happy about it because Thursday was time and a half!  I LIKE working those days!  Here's a couple of more layouts from the November Gossamer kit to share.  Little Gavin first in his Buzz Lightyear costume and the second one using some of the pictures Maria's Mom took of the two of them at the Botanical Gardens to use for their Save the Date photos.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Thanksgiving day!
