December 9 will be our 39th wedding anniversary. Believe it or not, I finally made my wedding scrapbook! I've only been scrapbooking/paper crafting for 21 years now (OMG, has it been that long!??? Wow) and I never really planned on doing a wedding album, as we didn't have a big wedding or anything. We married in the pastor's living room and my sister-in-law took some pictures for us and I've just had them in a little Hallmark book all these years. But heck, why not make a scrapbook, right!? I love looking at the pictures, even though there are only a few. They just make me happy. So I shared the album cover in the facebook group, but had requests to see the inside pages, so I figured I may as well share them here on my blog as well. I hope you like it. It was a labor of love and I enjoyed every second of creating it. Please enjoy, and comment if you would like.

Before we left for California, I bought a Glimmer Hot Foil System. It had been in the box under my desk just waiting to be crafty. I had such amazing success with my first pass I am officially hooked! Using Pinkfresh Studio, Perfect Sentiments hot foil plate and die, this was my very first attempt!
To say I was pleased is an understatement. For a first attempt, this was gorgeous. Of course, now I have to foil all the things. ALL the things! I went to the Pinkfresh Studio website and checked out some videos there, and then went to youtube to find even more. Having roughly twenty billion dies in my craft room, the fact you can use regular dies with this process is a game changer.
The pictures just can't possibly do justice to these images. This fancy label die (a 2 pc die) by My Favorite Things in silver on black - ...

We arrived home yesterday just after noon. It was so good to pull into the driveway and have everything looking exactly as we had left it. No snow, thank goodness! LOL And everything in working order. It was a really nice, sunny day, but very cold. Which we expected. It's supposed to warm up next week and then spring will be here. Yay.
We left La Mesa just before 9 a.m. on Monday and the weather was gorgeous. Clear skies, bright sunny morning, and perfect. Too bad we weren't able to bring it home with us. Can't have perfection every day I guess.

This will be my last post until we get back home from California. We hit the road again on the 7th, so my crafty supplies will be packed up in the next couple of days while we gather everything into the car. It's always amazing to us how slow the time goes in the first month, and then how quickly it goes in the last month! We will certainly miss the wonderful weather, but hopefully won't have to wait too long before spring comes to our door at home. :) Meanwhile, here is my final card until we get home.
We recently received the sad news that one of hubs' cousins, who had been suffering from a lot of health issues, including lung cancer, over the past several years, has passed away. I'm sure it's a blessing for his immediate family that he no longer suffers, but he will, of course, be missed.

Such a pretty combination to work with, I had to use it with some greenery. I decided on this Winter Wreath stamp by My Favorite Things. One of my crafty friends has been ill for awhile and I'm hoping to cheer her up with this card. I like how it turned out.
