Retirement - YAY!!

I finally retired from my former company, Archway Marketing and my last day was December 29, 2016.  My co-workers threw me a retirement luncheon and this was a photo taken during the festivities.  This Fancy Pants Joy Parade collection was absolutely PERFECT.

Welcome to 2017 - a new year of scrappy goodness

My first layout of 2017 is for the A Cherry on Top monthly Manufacturer Challenge that I host.  I chose the word RETIRED (since my official first day of retirement will be January 3rd) where the participants can chose as many manufacturers that start with those letters. 

I used Echo Park "Anything Goes" and The Twinery charcoal twine.  The layout features my granddaughter, Emma at one of her races this past autumn.  She had some bike malfunctions but still managed to finish the race.  I am so proud of her.

I am also honored to be helping with the ACOT 30/30 Challenge hosted by Sara M. and will be posting challenges o every Wednesday during the month of January.

December 2016 Sketches in Thyme

My reveal was December 4th using the fabulous sketch from Cherie Averill.  I used lots of Project Life Cards from the June 2016 Hip Kit Club.  The photo is from Emma's Middle School graduation this past June. I can't believe my granddaughter is now a freshman in high school


November/December Manufacturer Challenge at A Cherry on Top

I host a monthly challenge on ACOT and because this is such a busy time of year, I have given members two months to complete my challenge.  The letter I chose for these months is the first letter of the member's first name, last name, or their ACOT user name.  Since my first and last name start with C - I have used Crate Paper on my layout.

And what better way than to post my layout for the recent Sketches in Thyme Week 1 November sketch.  I look forward to 2017 when I will have more time to scrap and more time to BLOG!!!
