The Black Friday Blog Train Freebie

Welcome, all you crazy blog train travelers! You should have just come from Kari's Blog and are now arriving in Roseville, California. Today the weather is supposed to be a beautiful 65 degrees. Hard to believe it's almost December.

Today's blog train features printables from a wonderful new collab kit by the ScrapMatters design team (see below in the next post for the preview). The kit is free with a $10 purchase in the store. There are tons of sales and some GREAT new releases. Go check it out HERE.

We put up our outside Christmas lights yesterday and it was so beautiful to drive up last night and see the house all lit up. I LOVE Christmas.

A favorite tradition of mine is when we read the Christmas story from the Bible before opening gifts on Christmas Eve. We all gather in the family room and someone reads the passage from Luke 2. We read about the sweet, humble way our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ came into this world. We pray and thank Him for His gift and pray blessings over the family. Then we open gifts from each other with the story of His gift fresh in our minds. It's a very special evening.

And speaking of gifts... I have a gift for you. I made bookmarks for my girls to give out to their classmates and teachers, and you are welcome to them.

Get them **HERE**

Thank you so much for stopping by. Don't forget to stop by Scrap Matters for some great Black Friday fun. Now on to Maria's blog for your next freebie. There are 33 stops total, and you won't want to miss even one!

Yikes!! I've been slackin'

I guess it's not as bad as it could be, but still... I should post more often :)

Here are some recent LOs

Honor is from the Word Up challenge hosted by my friend, Christine. You can find the challenge HERE

Color Me Beautiful from the Speed Scrap last Friday

Let's Skate from the Speed Scrap on Wednesday. (See, I wouldn't get so much scrapping done if it weren't for Speed Scraps!!)

This Is Me was done for the Saturday Special challenge. We were supposed to use a sketch art filter on our pictures. I don't usually alter my pics so much so this was really different for me. You can check our the challenge HERE

And many many MORE

Thanks for looking!!
