Thankful Challenge at The Scrappy Tree

A Scrappy Tree tradition is to do a project about being thankful. Last year I did a little mini about things that I was thankful for in my life and this year I decided to do a layout about what being thankful means to me.

The journaling reads: To me, to be thankful means you must appreciate and see both the good and the bad in your life and realize that the bad can be overcome. The good stands out so much more when you don't give the bad power to influence you or bring you down. You must always be thankful for the good.
Come check out the other projects at The Scrappy Tree and take time to think about being thankful this season!

The Blue Challenge

The Scrappy Tree is taking part in World Pneumonia Day and its' cause to educate and vaccinate against pneumonia for children. As a part of our support, we hosted a Blue Challenge. WPD asks that all people wear blue jeans/blue on World Pneumonia Day (tomorrow) and at The Scrappy Tree we thought we'd challenge everyone to create something blue. It's not too late to join in on the challenge! Check out the blog for more information!

My project for the Blue challenge was a corner bookmark. I used blue cardstock for thebase, a Fiskars border punch for bottom edge, ric rac in blue, a blue felt flower and an old blue button for the flower center. I used pop dots to pop up the World Pneumonia logo.
Please check out The Scrappy Tree to read more about the World Pneumonia organization and this challenge. There are ways to donate to the cause as well. A ten dollar donation can vaccinate a child and save a life!

Fun weekend!

I always have fun when I spend time with Amy and this past weekend was another one of those times. I met her on Saturday evening, spent the night scrapping and watching tv with her and then we went to sleep (of course that was only one and a half hours of sleep, but oh well!). Then it was off to the Minnesota Vikings football game against the Arizona Cardinals.

We had fun at the game. So did the man behind us! :)

Banners on the outside of the Metrodome.

We made sure to see the players practice before the game began. One of the best players to watch was Brett Favre.

We had a great view! Wonderful seats!!

The game did not look good for us for quite awhile. But we came alive and from behind to tie it up and lead us into overtime.

We won!! Thank goodness!!

The game was so much fun. I wish all the games weren't sold out (or way too much money on stub hub) because I would love to go again this season.

Some Halloween Fun

Halloween was lots of fun at our house this year! I thought I'd take a minute and post some pics!

Ella was TinkerBell this year. TinkerBell was apparently a popular costume this year. She must have had at least 6 other girls in her preschool class dressed the same! :)

Dylan was BumbleBee the Transformer!

Debbie was Princess Peach from Super Mario Brothers!

The fairy was so excited, she had to fly ahead!

The President (Tom) was in town to trick or treat as well!
Hope your Halloween was a good one!
