My Sweet Beauty

I will admit that it is nice to have all of this free time to scrap and I find myself thinking gee I wish I didn't have to work!  Then reality sets in and I realize that it has been six weeks since I lost my job, and jobs are scarce out there.  I've applied for a few, but have not heard anything.  I'm hoping after the first of the year that things pick up.  I've yet to see my first unemployment check and things are tight!  No little extras for me for awhile!
Well enough of my goings on . . . I have a layout to share of my daughter Sara taken in 2006.  She had been a busy little decorator, decorating her gingerbread house.
I  made this layout for the new sketch reveal at Sketches In Thyme.  
This week's sketch is another great sketch by Jana Eubank:
I got the Webster's Pages Sweet Season collection for Christmas and thought it was perfect for my layout!  You all know I love to work with Webster's Pages and did a lot of cut work on this layout.
Aren't these roses beautiful?  I bought them from Alda at The Flying Unicorn Store.
You should check out here store.  She has some gorgeous flowers and embellishments!
I looked through my Christmas stash and came across some embellishments that fit perfectly in with my layout.
I've got some special news to share about a guest designer spot for me, but I can't share it with you until after the new year!  Can't wait!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
