12/17/13 - SIWAS: "All I Want For Christmas"

Since last Thursday I have been busy taking care of my sick husband.
Poor guy.
He has had some kind of bug that has had him down and out and I have been spending most of my free time taking care of him, trying to make him comfortable, and keeping him company. The fact that he let me take care of him is a great indicator of just how sick he was since he is not the type of man to allow a woman to "wait" on him.
But I have been and I am glad to do it.
Obviously I would prefer him not to be sick, but I have enjoyed my time taking care of him because it is such a rare occurence for him to allow me to do so.
Today he went back to work and he did okay; he actually made it through the day!
Thank goodness!
While I was taking care of him I didn't have much free time.
I haven't scrapped.
I even missed a Design Team deadline.
I felt bad about it but I did alert my team to it in advance.
Today I was able to scrap, and although it's late, since I hate to not complete an assignment, I created the layout.
The layout is for the latest challenge over at "Scrap It W/ a Song".
The song is "All I Want For Christmas" by Mariah Carey.
"Just What I Wanted"
Journaling: "12.8.12 Madison writes her letter to Santa"
I was inspired by the lyrics "All I Want For Christmas..." and decided to scrap pictures of my daughter writing her letter to Santa Claus telling him all that SHE wants for Christmas.

I was also inspired by the following blogs:

"My Scraps and More" - Sketch #59

Although I missed the deadline to enter...

I am on vacation until 12/26/13 so I can get ready for Christmas.
I am really looking forward to Christmas this year!! :0)
First time in a very long time, well actually... since I can remember!
Although I have a couple of more posts that I will be putting up before the year is over, I wanted to share w/ you that I made my goal of 120 layouts for the year!! Yay me!
In fact, the layout I just shared is #121!

Some other great news, I recently won 2 blog challenges: "Artful Delight and "ARTastic" and will be getting goodies in the mail from them and I was chosen as a favorite over at "Twisted Tuesdays". I found out kinda late because due to my having been pre-occupied, I have been behind on my blog reading.  Some day I will actually put the badges on my sidebar!
