It's November!

My goodness, where does the time go? 2008 is almost over! Yesterday my first born turned 9! I can't believe she is 9 already. They grow up so fast. Seems like just yesterday we were in preschool. I was teaching there and taking her with me, and she loved every minute of playing, exploring and learning with the other little ones!

Yesterday we went galactic bowling for Taylor's party. They turned down the lights, had a disco ball going and dance music...very fun! Of course, they had to get tokens for the arcade too....

I didn't get very many good photos, it's so hard to take pics in the dark bowling alley!

I created a card last night for the next challenge, which will be up at Card-a-licious today! The challenge this week is to create a "give thanks" card! Here is what I came up with.
I used a Basic Grey album to trace the shape onto Mairzy Doats - Just Jazzy paper (Tracy Whitney Designs by Dream Street). The large chipboard T is some Tim Holtz Grungeboard that I painted tan and ran over the embossed swirls with a brown ink pad. Added some Fancy Pants rub on flowers, a K& Co. journaling spot, American Crafts rub on letters (give) and some Pink Paislee Fashion Script letters for "thanks" in green.
The inside paper is Wonderland - Holly Berry (Dana Miron Designs) by Dream Street.
Thanks for stopping by today!
