I do hope that you had a wonderful Christmas day. All of my kiddo's were home and we had an awesome day of fun, feasting and remembering what our Lord and Savior did for us. After the kids (the older ones that is) leave I'll have more time to post my layouts and hopefully I'll have time to make cards too.

I finally got week 48 done for Project 365. Now I'm only behind 1 week... until tomorrow. lol These layouts used templates and the Whimsy Holiday & Life 365 kits by Weeds and Wildflowers. I decided to go ahead and use a Christmas kit since most of this week was doing Christmas stuff despite it being the Thanksgiving holiday.

Here are my layouts for Week 47 of Project 365. As usual I used Weeds and Wildflowers Life 365 kit and their Kickin Up the Leaves kit. My arm is feeling lots better. I'm finding that the muscles are stiff and knot up easily when I stretch my arm out, so I'll probably be going in for PT. I'm going to give it a few more days (after all, this is the weekend) to see how it does.

I am forever behind now. Getting sick in October really threw a monkey wrench into my life and I've been playing catch up ever since. I got sick again last Saturday as everyone was leaving and then yesterday my arm has been giving me problems. This is December... the busiest month of the year for me and I'm out of commission! lol So I'm not a happy camper. I'm trying to get my layouts for my project 365 done and uploaded. I still took a picture a day even though life was busy. I just wasn't able to keep up on my middle daughter's challenge of doing a layout a day. Oh well.
These layouts use 5 kits and a template from Weeds and Wildflowers... Such a Boy, My Best Friend, Give Thanks, Happiness and Pumpkin.

I used several kits to do this layout. The paper is from Every Life has a Story by the digichick. The owls on the branch, the buttons and ladybug are from the kit Awaiting Autumn by JM Designs. The white and green flowers are from Ellie Lash's kit Strawberry Hill which isn't available anymore. The green and paper flower is from the Sweet Florals kit by AR at ScrapArtist. These kits were all from the Daily Digi files in the past. The template is by Amy Martin and is in this months Daily Digi file #9.
This picture of 2 of my children was so funny that I had to make a scene to put it in. I used Osten Wilkins Designs new kit called Fall Harvest for it. Everything is from Fall Harvest except the background paper, the scarecrow and the turkey.

This layout is using a collab kit called Blessings. Osten Wilkins Designs and Kimmy from aMuzing dSigns created this kit. Part of Blessings is November's Download of the Month at Osten's forum, part is for Club Dude subscribers, part of the kit will be in the store and I think they have a mini kit in the November AFX magazine. I used a template for this layout by Amy Martin.
I see this tree out the window of my bedroom. It was sooo gorgeous this fall. I used several of Osten Wilkins Designs kits. The tag and paper are from his Autumn Falls kit and the rest is from his brand new kit Fall Harvest. His new kit has the cutest vegies.

I am so sorry I'm behind on posting my layouts. My life took a turn towards not just busy but incredibly hectic with very little time left over for being on the computer. I'm slowly catching up. During the 2 weeks I was incredibly busy I was also sick, sick, sick. I do hope that all of you stay well. I will catch up through this coming week.
Another layout I did for a challenge. This layout is using Heidi Kulp's kit Boo that is being given out weekly at Osten Wilkins Designs forum. We don't do Halloween but I thought this picture of my middle daughter worked well for the kit. One of the nights at Wyld Life camp the kids were to dress up as rockers.

Another layout of last years color. Leaves have hardly started to turn this year. For the base of this layout I used the kit Give Thanks by Heidi Williams. The brown tatting came from Patricia Christensen's kit Summers End. The dark brown paper is also by Patricia Christensen in her Pumpkin kit. I did this layout for the font challenge at Osten Wilkins' forum.
Everything used for this layout came out of the DailyDigi files #8. The kit is by Ziggle Designs called Funky Love. The template is Yin Template 147. The font that I used for the journaling is DJB TRACYscript by Darcy Baldwin. She provided a font pack for the DailyDigi files #7.
I used a couple of Halloween kits for this layout. We don't celebrate Halloween in our house so I have to get creative with the few kits I have for this holiday. This month at Osten Wilkins forum designs by heidik (also known as ScrappinBrat) is giving away a mini kit each week in the Download of the Month part of the forum. If you're a subscriber to Club Dude you get a large coordinating kit. This kit is called Boo. Very cute. For this layout everything is from Boo except the black glitter swirl which is from Osten Wilkins Designs Tricky Treaters kit.
I know, I know... another beach picture! I didn't use a kit specifically for the beach. The kit I used is by the digichick designers called Every Life has a Story. This kit is found... you know it... in the the DailyDigi files #8. The little star fish is from Studio Natali's kit Seaside.
This layout uses another kit found in the DailyDigi file #8. It is Cinnamon Whisper by Kay Miller Designs. I love her kits, but just haven't had the funds to purchase any of them. I was so delighted to find one in this months file. I used a template by Janet Phillips.
This layout was lots of fun to do. I found it rather ironic that here I was doing a layout about my youngest daughter using a kit called Girls are Yucky. But the colors were perfect. You can find this kit by Designs by Lili in the latest DailyDigi file #8. The alpha I used is from Gina Marie Huffs Glitzy Alpha. It is part of the Life 365 series at Weeds and Wildflowers. I used a template which is also in the DailyDigi file #8. It is Yin Template 146.

My middle daughter is always wanting in the picture. I had taken a picture of my youngest son and she had her head sticking out, but didn't make it into the photo so I took one of her too to make her happy. DailyDigi has come out with DailyDigi file #8. Oh my... the kits are so lovely. Design by Dani made the kit Softly Falling that I used for this layout.
And here is the other half of my Project 365 kit. I know I made strawberry jam at the begining of the year, but I needed the space in my freezer that the puree was taking up. I got 22 quarts and 12 pints done up. The apple butter is canned now too. I used Weeds and Wildflowers Life 365, Gingham Gallop and Kickin Up the Leaves kits.
The trees are really turning colors now. We have gotten some really cold nights... no frost yet however, which always helps the trees to turn. I used for my Project 365 layout 3 kits from Weeds and Wildflowers. I used Gingham Gallop, Life 365 and Kickin Up the Leaves.
