My November challenge at Two Spotted Dogs

Check out the challenge that I posted for this month over at Two Spotted Dogs - Eight is Great Challenge Due 11/30/09.

I cannot believe that Bruce is going to be eight years old this month. Where has the time gone??? His upcoming celebration is the inspiration for this month's challenge ... Eight is Great. You can do either of the following: * have 8 of something (brads, pieces of ribbon, letters in the title, photos, etc.) on your layout - which can be one or two pages * use the word Eight in your title

Here's my layout, which I finished up this evening
Sure hope that some of you come over and give the challenge a try.

TSD Amy's November Challenge

At Two Spotted Dogs, Amy gave us a tough challenge ... Keep it Simple

I used this challenge to spotlight a special keepsake for Bruce

Journaling reads: Granny & Gaga give their grandchildren a Christmas ornament every year. For 2008, Granny found a very meaningful ornament for Bruce. The fishing Santa is in remembrance of Bruce’s first time fishing … which was with Gaga and Granny just a few days before he died in August. This ornament will always have a special place on our Christmas tree.
