And Santa gave me.....for Christmas....

a Canon EOS Rebel XS ! Thanks darling for this new toy!

We couldn't resist the boxing day specials at Future Shop (got the camera bag, spare battery and grip). I will have lots of time to read the instructions driving back from New Brunswick and be more familiar with it! Combined with Mellisa, Marlene and Laurie's expertise I will be able to take amazing pics! My point and shoot will need to go for repair and will be a good back-up!

Leaving back tomorrow for Montréal (one day early) and will continue my shopping there.... because of the space in my parents van (driving 6 to go back home!!!)

Our Christmas Traditions....

Every year Stephane and I we take our Christmas picture for the cards that we send to family and friends... and this was the one that we selected for Xmas 2008!

I made this layout with "my favorite Christmas paper line" of this year... the "Fa la la" by Making Memories! Pretty much every thing on this page is by them except a vintage tag & pin, ribbon and this amazing Prima Poinsettia (from last year release).

I have some journaling under the scalloped circle and I used a piece of scraps from the cards that I made the "Swiss Dot" Cuddle Bug green strip. Love that new tool, I just wish they would event it 12 X 12!

Enjoy your w-end, I am heading home to Montréal tonight after work and then tomorrow we are driving to New Brunswick for the holidays. We will be 6 in the family van: my parents, me and Stephane and my brother with his girlfriend!!! A true tradition since we are kids.... 12 hours from Montreal.... lets hope that the roads and winter conditions are with us!

And it's snowing again!

Ohhhhhhh the joy of driving in the snow!
It took me the full hour this AM to drive down town to drop off Stephane and his colleague and to go to work.

Arrived on time, but wasn't able to stop for coffee.... and boy did I needed it!
So last night.... I made a few things.... After making over 60 cards for family and friends, I wanted to do a simple batch of cards for my colleagues at work.Very simple, pictures of ornaments I took last year + glittered paper, that's super simple, but very classic and I know that the girls at work will love them! So 20 cards later here are some of the 5 models I made.

Then I finished my ATC's for December.

Ohhhhhh I forgot to bring the layout I made at the crop last Sunday, so I will have to update that tomorrow!

And here are my ATC's for December for the Scrapbox swap! I needed to finish them before leaving for new Brunswick!

and on a final note.... just wanted to share the happy moment of Stephane.... he made it in the 501st Star Wars Legion a few weeks ago and now he is working on finalizing his second costume as a Tie Pilot. I am so proud of him! He custom painted his gun for a toy gun, added extra lights and pieces, modified his helmet... a few little things to finish and he will be ready for the next even with his own costume.... what's next... I think he is planing on the Biker Scout costume....
What a great passion, a great way to get creative/craftiness and to also and a great way to give back to the community!

Enjoy your Wednesday!

A Touch of Magic!

Last week was really a hectic week!

So happy that it's over! Retired my Fa la la class after teaching it 3 times! Wow.... it was a really popular acrylic book and happy that everyone that took the class loved it! A big thanks for Mellisa for picking up some necessary tools to complete the last class... Merci darling!

Saturday was my Xmas party at work, we had lots of fun and Sunday we took it easy! Yesterday both Stephane and I were sick and stayed home. I also had to bring my car to the garage after trying to start it many times during the day... my battery was "capout"! And they changed my gas trap so now I don't need to open my truck every single time that I need to put gas! yeah... it was under warranty!

I managed to create 1 page Sunday.... ouffff it felt good! I almost finished all my Xmas cards, now I need to signed them and mail them out.

Have a happy week, hope that the freezing rain that we will have will not be to bad for driving!
