Ouch and Awww....

Good morning friends!  It's Christmas Eve...are you all set for the big day tomorrow?  I think we are here at the Ames House!  It took me awhile but I finally got in the Christmas spirit last week and now I'm really excited about tomorrow.  I will definitely be missing Jon but I am thankful I will have Kyler and Scott here!

So, today I promised to show you a scrapbooking page but you are going to get two instead.  I am really enjoying the scrapbooking software and am looking forward to doing some more pages this afternoon.  What is great about using digital software is that it takes so much less time and mistakes are easily corrected (that is my favorite part).  I haven't had these pages printed yet as I want to send in several at a time but I will be using an online store for that.  I pre-bought their printing services but after I'm done with the pages I bought I've heard good things about Costco so I'll probably try there even though it is 45 minutes away from where I live.  Anyway, onto the pages!

I'm sure some of you remember when Kyler crashed his bike this last summer and went to the ER for his wrist and road rash.  While it was a painful time for him I wanted to be sure he remembered his first trip to the ER...I know that sounds weird but we are the sum total of our experiences and how we respond to them...he was quite the trooper that day, very brave!  The kit I used for this page is called I'm Sick by Albums to Remember
The above page I made yesterday for a challenge on the MyMemories blog.  It is the Christmas Fashion Fun challenge.  Of course your page doesn't have to be fancy like mine but cute with a favorite Christmas sweater or even an ugly sweater!  Anyway, this is a photo from when Todd and I went to Rigadoon a couple of weeks ago.  Yes, I love my dress!  I felt so pretty in it.  I dislike the way I'm standing though as it looks like I have a big hiney.  LOL!  Anyway, the kit I used for this page is Comfort and Joy by Connie Prince. 

Remember if you want to check out the MyMemories Suite Software just click on the MyMemories button in my right side bar to be taken to the store.  If you decide to purchase it and use the code I show over there you'll get $10 off the software...what a deal, huh?

Alright friends...have an amazing Christmas Eve with your family and friends!  I'll have a little something on my blog tomorrow so see ya then!

Thought of the day:  If you want to feel rich just count all the blessings you can't buy.
