Birthday Border


Hey all!
So today I'm linking up to another fun party, over at Seize the Birthday! The challenge was "border punches or dies." This is a die by PTI- so pretty! The flowers and leaves are also a PTI stamp set, one of my favs. So versatile, you can pair them with any sentiment.

Devout Thanksgiving Wreath



Hi friends!
So I know it's been a while, but with Christmas season upon us, I'll be popping in here a bit more in the near future! I made this card for a challenge, but missed the deadline to post it- whoops! Not sure how I feel about this card, what do you think? The challenge was to use "circles" which I think I did and then some! :P I'll be back again tomorrow to share some more goodies!

December Daily 2012 (day 5)

Hey ladies!
So today is the last day of sharing the (loooong time coming) December Daily album from 2012! It also includes our oldest daughter's first trip to Disney World, so you'll notice a lot of Mickey theming as well as Christmas. And yes, I still have yet to get the actual photos in the album! Before the end of the month, I hope to have 2014's December Memories album ready to post here too! Check back tomorrow for even more photos of 2012's album! And here's today's photos...

 As I've shared previously, I save EVERYTHING from my trips in order to scrapbook later... above you'll see a parking pass I saved, lol.

 And above is a receipt along with the envelope from some free Fastpasses we got when we listed to the Disney Vacation Club sales pitch (hoping one of those are in our future one year!)...


 Lol, must hang on to all of those baggage claim receipts and plane tickets!!

And of course one final receipt to be scrapbooked.... this was documenting where I got charged for extra whipped cream at Starbucks!

Thanks for joining me as I shared my December Daily 2012 album! Hopefully I'll have last year's to show you soon!!! :)

Hey ladies!
So today is Day 4 of sharing the (loooong time coming) December Daily album from 2012! It also includes our oldest daughter's first trip to Disney World, so you'll notice a lot of Mickey theming as well as Christmas. And yes, I still have yet to get the actual photos in the album! Before the end of the month, I hope to have 2014's December Memories album ready to post here too! Check back tomorrow for even more photos of 2012's album! And here's today's photos...


 As I've shared before, I save EVERYTHING from my trips in order to scrapbook later... so today you'll see a parking pass and a Fastpass hehe

 And here's our entrance sticker tickets to the Candlelight Processional event at Disney...

 Can't forget to save those "1st Christmas" ornament boxes and gift tags!

 Of course we have to save the Sea World tickets and parking pass (it was FREEZING during the days we went to Sea World, so we popped for the extra $5 for close parking this day!)

 More Times Guides, maps, and parking passes from the parks...

And yet another parking pass, lol. Yup, I save everything.


See ya tomorrow for the final day of my December Daily 2012 album! :)

December Daily 2012 (day 3)

Hey ladies!
So today is Day 3 of sharing the (loooong time coming) December Daily album from 2012! It also includes our oldest daughter's first trip to Disney World, so you'll notice a lot of Mickey theming as well as Christmas. And yes, I still have yet to get the actual photos in the album! Before the end of the month, I hope to have 2014's December Memories album ready to post here too! Check back tomorrow for even more photos of 2012's album! And here's today's photos...

As I shared previously, I save EVERYTHING from my trips in order to scrapbook later... so above you'll see one of our parking passes lol. The paper bag on the right was folded in half and used as a hidden pocket page! So it's stuffed with goodies from our trip... probably more parking passes ;)

Of course we need to save the park tickets from SeaWorld...

No trip is complete without saving receipts! The red wrist band is actually from the hospital- hubby got food poisoning from some Salmonella chicken we made back at our timeshare the one night :( Glad I'm a vegetarian, otherwise that would have made for an even more unpleasant occurrence!

And more parking passes, and my brother's plane ticket (my parents and baby bro came to spend a few days at Disney with us!)

Can't forget to save the guide maps and dinner table number info! lol

And I needed an extra pocket, so I used some washi to make an impromptu pocket on the lefthand page above.



See ya tomorrow for Day 4 of my December Daily 2012 album! :)

December Daily 2012 (day 2)

Hey ladies!
So today is Day 2 of sharing the (loooong time coming) December Daily album from 2012! It also includes our oldest daughter's first trip to Disney World, so you'll notice a lot of Mickey theming as well as Christmas. And yes, I still have yet to get the actual photos in the album! Before the end of the month, I hope to have 2014's December Memories album ready to post here too! Check back tomorrow for even more photos of 2012's album! And here's today's photos...

 As I shared yesterday, I save EVERYTHING from my trips in order to scrapbook later... so above you'll note the Times Guide for one of the Disney parks as well as our parking pass, lol.

 More parking passes and of course I had to save the map and bracelet's from the Disney special event, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!


Super simple pocket page on the above left page- I just cut some Mickey paper and glued the left, right and bottom sides. You'll see a few more of these DIY pocket pages along the way...

 More randomness that I saved- this time the menu from Ghirardelli's where I cut out the menu items that we got... to go with the actual photo of what we got which will go in here soon!

Another DIY pocket page, a Times Guide, can't forget to save those receipts (lol) and some Fastpass & Rider Swap Passes!

See ya tomorrow for Day 3 of my December Daily 2012 album! :)

December Daily 2012 (part 1)


Hey ladies!
So this has been a loooong time coming, but I wanted to share my first December Daily album (which is still missing photos! ack!). This album was made for 2012, and included our daughter's first trip to Disney World! So you'll notice a bit of Mickey colors thrown in on some of the pages ;) I'll post photos throughout the rest of the week, and hopefully I'll have 2014's December Memories album to show you before the end of the month!

You'll notice some hot pink slivers of paper throughout the photos- those are where I'd left room for photos. Unfortunately a computer crash shortly after December left us with many missing photos :( So learn from my amateur mistake- ALWAYS back up your computer data!!! Anyhoo, without further ado, here's the first section of my December Daily album from a few years back...



 You'll start noticing a trend- I like to save (and subsequently scrapbook) EVERYTHING! So yes, above you will notice the receipt... from the purchase of our Disney tickets. Yup.

 And above you'll see the room card from the hotel we stayed at before we flew down to Disney.... annnnd our Disney packing list...

And then there's our Disney schedule (I'm a planner nut! If you check out my Homemaking Blog, you'll see all my lists and planner over there, hehe!) and of course I had to save all our baggage claim slips, tags, and plane tickets!

And we'll wrap up today's post with our parking pass for our resort on the above lefthand page lol. The righthand page above is actually a pocket page- one paper folded in half, glued on the top and bottom, and shoved full of other random paraphernalia I just had to keep from our trip... probably more receipts of groceries and souvenirs lol.

Does anyone else save EVERYTHING from their trips??? :)
See ya tomorrow for the next set of pages!

Merry Christmas


“And the angel said unto [the shepherds], 
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings
 of great joy, which shall be to all people. 

For unto you is born this day in the city of
 David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord...

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth
 peace, good will toward men.”

Luke 2:10-11,14

As we head into the Christmas season eagerly awaiting the celebration of our Saviour's birth and the birth of our next little one, may Jesus’ peace and love touch each of you during this joyous season and throughout the new year to come! 
With Love- Shauna K & family
