Hello, poor neglected blog.  I may have slightly under estimated the wear and tear of working two jobs.  Ahem, I've had one day off (today) in the last eleven and some days have been twelve hours of being on my feet.  Eat, sleep, work, repeat.   I'll revisit cutting hours after the first of the year.  But for the time being... I'll just plan on being tired, v.e.r.y., v.e.r.y. tired.   

Then, I hope everyone is having a Happy Thanksgiving!  We're having a bit of a mixed up Thanksgiving.  A breakfast feast at my daughter's, then home tonight to have a turkey breast, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy and such.  They are going to dinner at the in-laws tonight.  All good, as long as there were the grandbabes to play with today! 

I did finish up a page or two, but haven't gotten them photographed. I am halfway done with Christmas cards, and because that is non brain taxing, (since it's production mode and not design mode), I'll probably work on finishing those up tonight.

The following layout has been "done" for awhile.  I think.  I say that, because I keep looking at it and thinking I will add a couple of horizontal strips.  Then I look at it again and think, nah, it looks done.  This may go on until it is actually in the album. 

Photos were from the state wrestling competition.  The real story though was one of personal courage, which I am not sure Jacob would want me to share publicly, so I won't.  Suffice to say, this boy made me the proudest Nana there could ever be.  I shared my thoughts on this on an index card which tucks behind the photos on the second page. 

Papers are from Authentique, the Loyal collection which I got in pad form at Hobby Lobby several months ago and have made great use of!  Stars are punched and edges inked.  Stamped the mesh look images in opposite corners and drew in a border line.  The stickers are from an old 7 Gypsies sticker sheet (still a lot of stickers on those sheets to use up!).  I stapled across the paper strips and tucked in a ticket stub from a Tim Holtz pack.    

Alphabet stickers are Thickers, Tiny Type from Cosmo Cricket and Little Yellow Bicycle. 

So there it is; the "maybe" done layout!  Happy turkey day!
