WMS- Blog Party!

It's the 17th of the month and time for the WMS Blog Party!!


To be honest, with Bill's surgery... I've been so busy and in my mind I didn't have to post until Monday-don't ask, I know a lost a couple days, LOL!!  Halfway through the day I realized the time was upon me and I better "get to shaking"!!

He's really doing great- so much better than the surgery in July- a bit bored and with the sling/anesthetic drip needs help to bath etc. but, nothing like the last one! Pain is under control!!!!!!

The theme this month is Gratitude and since we have a Holiday coming up soon.. and this is the first Thanksgiving Lauren {my oldest} has been "wedded"... thought I would make a little book for her first married Thanksgiving. Keep in mind- left room/space for her to journal and add pics.

*beware there are several pics*

Sentiment- Say It Loud Winter Holiday.

Sentiment is from WMS Yonder Star and leaves/acorn from Peace and Plenty.

The background on the left was made using WMS Yonder Star backgrounder and the pumpkin is from Peace and Plenty.
Sentiment is from Peace and Plenty.

Sentiment and pear are from Peace and Plenty. Background is WMS Cabin Plaid backgrounder.


On the left I used Heirloom Patterns and the wreath from Peace and Plenty. On the right is a star and sentiment from Yonder Star.

After Lauren decides on her pictures, we can add, and spruce things up a bit more- maybe some buttons, twine, jute. more images from Peace and Plenty. And we'll "fancy up" the jump rings.

Chipboard- some were WMS images stamped on paper and adhered, some are patterned paper from Simple Stories, and some were painted and then misted with glimmer mist.

Have a great Sunday. Hoping to get a chance to see what everyone else has created. Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
