In the Spirit

For Thanksgiving this year Chris, Bob and I went to West Virginia's Oglebay Park "Festival of Lights", one of the largest light displays in the country.  The weather was gorgeous and the music festive.  We had a great time.

The local scrapbook store in Wheeling, Mom's Memories, is on the National Highway just a few miles from the hotel. These are the papers I purchased there, from the Authentique line.  The Vintage buttons were another great find:




When we arrived home we filled the bird feeders and enjoyed our winter birds in the pretty sunlight.  We do not feed in the summertime, and the chickadees and titmice started telling us it was time back in September.

Bob took this terrific picture of the titmouse hopping in mid air and also got pictures of the birds in the bird bath.  His page ran in the Post a few weeks ago:



Notice I got a few Christmas lights up today and am officially in the holiday spirit.  Hope your day was a happy one too!

Bob's photo is really beautiful. It's so neat that he got such a huge spread in the paper. You two are so talented!

Cindy this is an amazing photo and layout. I adore the colours.
Thanks so much for the links to the wedding dress - what an amazing creation! And I love the story of how many people helped to create it too. So glad the wedding went well.

What a fabulous page to showcase this amazing photo!! I've been to Oglebay, but never for the Christmas lights. One of these years, I'll have to get out there to see them. ~ Blessings, Tracey
