December Specials

I just love the December special.  
These albums make such great gifts or keepsakes for yourself.
I know that I will not keep up with a December Daily album so I am going to use some of my favorite prompts and create a "12 Days of Christmas"
mini-album with the red one. 
Check out this article on the CTMH blog.
Here is a link to all the options.  
If you get all three, it comes to just a bit over $10 each.
I love that!

You've Got Class

Have you seen the 
"You've Got Class" workshop?
It is a great workshop that inspires you to scrap school pics from K-12.
Since I don't have any kiddos, I really didn't need the entire kit so I just
printed off directions for a couple pages to scrap our 
"first day of school" pics.
I substituted some of the papers for what I have in my stash but the entire
kit has everything you need to create an album for K-12.
How awesome for to start at Kindergarten or just catch up to senior year!
This kit is easy and fun!
Details HERE.
Of course, I cannot leave out the hubs!
Here's to another busy school year!
