Lots of stuff to talk about...

Hello friends!!
We had a great Thanksgiving in the Fennell household! My brother, my Mom and us-perfect! It was relaxing, fun and so nice to see my brother. We miss him terribly and the boys can't get enough of their uncle. I am going to NYC next weekend to pay him a visit with Sherry. I haven't been to the big city in a while, so this trip is long overdue. We are taking off right after i get out of work on Friday. I am driving down.

I am also going to be at CHA with Prima! YAY! I love going to Anaheim and seeing all of my Prima buddies. I really miss them! I look forward to every aspect of it. It never gets old for some reason...and i think it's because of the company i keep. They have truly become some of my dearest friends.

I've got a cute little Christmas ensemble I put together last week. It's a little house from Maya Road that has a cute little chipboard book inside. I covered the house with Cosmo papers and the roof with Vintage Christmas paper. Then the roof is covered in clear glitter as well as the door.

The little book was made into a display with cute cut outs, rosettes, Cosmo papers, and glittered letters. Very simple to make and it looks so sweet on my mantle!

I really need to get more projects up soon for everyone! i plan to make several more projects for the holidays including a couple of mini books. I'll post them as soon as I get them done!
Hope you all have a great week! And try not to stress about the holidays too much....

November is here!!!

Is it really November already? I can't believe how fast October flew by, I barely had time to get ready for Halloween. Last week was a whirlwind of chaos-decorate for Halloween, buy costumes, work, Jack had the flu, buy pumpkins, run errands, scrap for Prima and visit baby Gwyn at the hospital with Nic. Jack is fine now and I am ever so thankful that he is. Gwyn is holding her own but with difficulty--I just want her to get better so she can go home with Nic and Jim and the boys. I crashed on Sunday afternoon. I took a huge nap and went to bed at normal time. I am just glad the week is over and it is time to start fresh--a new week and a new month and New Moon! hehe

We have our tickets to go see the midnight premiere and I CAN NOT WAIT! I know-I am a dork! But we have big plans and I can't wait to put those plans into action! I need a girl's night out and I need it now!

OK-so enough rambling about life...
I wanted to share my Bad Girls Bleuprint with you. I hope it inspires you to get out your scrap stuff and your mojo-can't forget the mojo--and create. This is all about vintage. Vintage finds, vintage looks, vintage memories--anything. And because it's open to interpretation-you can make it your own vintage. My layout is brightly colored, not aged like you would expect. It's about my Grandmother's vintage garden with Lilacs. Love them! i planted them in my own garden because of her.
So keep an open mind when creating and see what comes about. It may surprise you....

Create something gorgeous and have fun!
Be back soon!
