Christmas is Coming!!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Can you believe that tomorrow is December 1st??? What I can't believe is that we actually have all our holiday decorations up AND I ordered our Christmas cards last night. I make photo cards and i'm NEVER this early. I guess it just feels like this year is barreling ahead and i'm just trying to keep up. Or try to not get run over!

There are some fun scrapping holidays things coming up. You will want to check out the PSA Stamp Camp blog for some really great holiday cards and gift ideas all month. Today there is a Christmas card kickoff on the blog. Go become a follower and you will be happy you did! Lots of great stuff coming up in December!

Also, over at Croppin' Paradise, starting December 1st we are having the 12 Days of Christmas Gift Bazaar. The design team has come up with a whole bunch of great gift and holiday crafty ideas. For 12 days, we will be posting a new idea each day. We also have a new sketch posted for this week. Lots of fun holiday ideas coming up to get you in the holiday spirit!!

And because I can't leave you without a photo, here are a few pics from our recent trip to the Long Beach Aquarium. It was raining and overcast, but we still had some fun!

Feeding the bat rays...


Touching the big rays and sharks...


And feeding the beautiful Lorikeets...



Thanks for stopping by today!!!

We haven't been to the LB Aquarium since they first opened. It looks like they have a lot more now than the building with tanks in it. What great photos!
