Altered Paint Cans

We had an Christmas ornament exchange at my place and I made a few Altered Paint Cans that I filled with chocolates as little give aways. I think they turned out alright for my first attempt.

I'm a bad blogger...

Where has the month of November gone...geez I can't believe it's only a month until Christmas. Well sadly winter has returned to Calgary so our poor landscapers have had to stop again...we now have a fence and the ground work is for our retaining wall but it will probably be at least another few weeks.

We have a busy weekend coming up ...the Calgary Moms group is have a children's Christmas party on Saturday and I'm hosting a Ornament and Recipe exchange party on Sunday. But it's great because it will get us in the mood for the holidays fast approaching.

A company is coming tomorrow to put up our Christmas lights and in this weather it is totally worth every penny !

I haven't done much scrapbooking this month but have been working on a few altered paint cans for the party on Sunday. I will post some pictures as soon as they are done.

I decided to not make my Christmas cards this year...I'm a little sad but I just seemed to have too much on the go so I bought some really cute ones from Costco.

We did our first professional photo shoot a month ago and just got the pictures back...Here are a few of my favorite ones.

Well I hope it won't be another month before I post again.

Chow for now !!!

Well it's been a Week

Since our landscapers have been here...Calgary has been hit with a week of cold weather which includes lots of snow. So we have had a bobcat and a big pile of dirt sitting in our front yard...:{sigh}

They are calling for better weather next week so we are still hoping they will get finished this year...but who knows anymore.

We celebrated Halloween last week and while the weather wasn't ideal I think the kids still had a good time. You see kids in Canada are typically used to cold weather when they Trick or Treat so they just added an extra layer underneath and off they went.

I finally finished a new layout. It's Hayden and his little friend Matthias on Halloween night...they looked so cute in their little costumes.
