December Dreams is Done!

Today was the first day of the year that the temps rose above freezing. Today was the first day in 2010 that I didn't work 10 hours + on 'December Dreams' my digital scrapbook. The beginning of our year was filled with a lot of snow, wind and bitter cold weather, perfect for cooking my book! Funny how the weather cooperated. My good husband's birthday is next week and I wanted to make him a memory book of our busy holiday season. It is a 99 page labor of love. Thoreau's quote 'Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake'... is so fitting. I absolutely love my life with my husband and family and it seems like I live in a dream hence the title! Wish you could see the cover but it is of our home and well, that is against Kritter Keeper's privacy guidelines. Seems like all of us are pals, but you never know who is reading your blog, therefore I picked mostly pet pages that will amuse you...

Yes, Jessie allowed me to put a large wreath around her neck, for real!! And Blue's hat is stuffed with bubble wrap and hooked underneath his halter! I had to be quick before it fell off. He was such a good boy and as always, Jessie was perfect! The kittie's bows are fake...


Santa was fake although he looked so real...so nothing weird was going on! :~)
You saw this in my last post but isn't their Christmas basket cute!!
