Giving Thanks

Happy Thursday!

As you know on Thursdays here at Siehled With A Kiss I usually post about what I am working on; however, there is nothing on my desk again.  Tomorrow I am going to my once a month Friday crop and I have my desks all cleaned and my kits all made for the night.  I have 5 kits made so hopefully I will be able to get to all of them; however, my girlfriend is back and she is coming so I am sure we will be talking a bunch.  Hey, if I can get 3 of them complete I will be happy. I have 1 card kit and 4 layouts. 

I also am excited about going to the crop to find out when all the CHA new lines are coming out and when they will be in the store.  I totally have to save my pennies because there are so many new lines that I want, but I also have to use up some more of my stash.  I don't have anymore room for more paper so I better get scrapping and use up my stash. 

Give Thanks
This is a layout I made last month. ( I am taking a bit of a break from the challenges.  I plan on entering a couple this month but I want to concentrate on my own work.)

I have to say I love this layout.  I used all my scraps from the Imaginisce line.  I also love it because of the picture.  It is one of my all time favs!

One of the things that I am most thankful for is my mother.  She is so many things to me: a mother, a friend, a hero, a mentor, and the list goes on and on.  I love that we have moved closer and my boys get to see her every week.  It is so cute how excited they get when I tell them that she is coming over.  I love it.  I had such a close relationship with my grandparents growing up and I want the same for my kids. 

Love all the buttons and brads!

I just love all the little matching embellisments in this line.  I also combined a bunch of my Basic Grey buttons and brads on the layout.  

bazzill, imaginisce,  tim holtz ink and mini clips, basic grey buttons and brads, paper trey ink twine, ek success punches

Well I hope everyone has a great day.  I will be back tomorrow with another layout.  Thanks for stopping by!

p.s.  to all my new followers--thanks so much! i am honored that you would want to follow me.  Your kind comments brighten my day.  thanks again!

Great layout! It's really special that your boys have a close relationship with your mom. I wasn't so close with my grandparents and am beyond grateful that my kids and my parents have a much closer bond.
