"Simply make a layout all about cookies!
Now you don’t have to bake a batch of cookies right now to get the layout done. Get creative! The possibilities are endless. If your totally drawing a blank in how to pull this off in just a short amount of time, here are some fun ideas:
You can do a layout that includes a photo of a bag of flour and your favorite cookie recipe.
A layout that includes a favorite photo of your Grandmother and a journal that includes a favorite memory about baking cookies with her while you were a child.
Memories of putting milk and cookies out for Santa.
Take the easy way out and run to the kitchen and snap a photo of those Oreos that are in your kitchen cabinet. After all, they just may be your favorite cookies.
Now remember, you are not limited to these ideas. This is your layout. Make it your own. Post your layout (one made specifically for this challenge and not previously posted anywhere before now) right here in the Fiskateer gallery and leave a link to your layout here in your comments. Although it’s not a requirement, be sure to leave a list of Fiskars tools you used in making your layout too!
Now I’m going to be totally honest with you. I just thought up this challenge within the last hour and created my cookie example to kick things off. And since this is a on-line Fiskateer Holiday Party, I’m going to take on the challenge too! I’m going to create my layout this weekend and post it tomorrow, Sunday 12/14 at 9:00 pm Eastern time along with the name of the random winner of this fun and yummy challenge."

"Any model will tell you how important it is to have a Glossy. They seem to vary in size but they all contain the model's vital statistics and **GASP** a photo of her. Some Glossy's even have two pictures, a headshot and a body shot. As for their statistics.... they are generally, age, height, eye and hair color, measurements, clothing size. It also has a general resume as well.So, your mini challenge for this week is to create your own Glossy. It can be any size BUT it must contain at least one picture of you and some vital statistics. Be creative and have fun!"
Creative Imaginations pattern paper, Fancy pants Christmas Felt, Creative Imaginations overlays, Prima flowers, vellum pen, xmas red Stickles by Ranger, miscs lettering and number beads and brads.

-- By Andy Rooney
I Have Learned that...
... the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
... when you're in love, it shows.
... just one person saying to me, "You've made my day!" makes my day.
... having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
... being kind is more important than being right.
... you should never say no to a gift from a child.
... I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way.
... no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
... sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
... simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult.
... life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
... we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.
... money doesn't buy class.
... it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
... under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
... the Lord didn't do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?
... to ignore the facts does not change the facts.
... when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.
... love, not time, heals all wounds.
... the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am.
... everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.
... there's nothing sweeter than sleeping with your babies and feeling their breath on your cheeks.
... no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.
... life is tough, but I'm tougher.
... opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.
... when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.
... I wish I could have told my Dad that I love him one more time before he passed away.
... one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.
... a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
... I can't choose how I feel, but I can choose what I do about it.
... when your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, that you're hooked for life.
... everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.
... it is best to give advice in only two circumstances; when it is requested and when it is a life threatening situation.
... the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

"Children were neither just the mute and traumatized witnesses to this war, nor merely its innocent victims; the war invaded their imaginations and the war raged inside them." — Nicholas Stargardt in "Witnesses of War: Children's Lives Under the Nazis"

Steve & Zack, I think they both turned 17, not sure!
I posted earlier last week about a project that I am doing for the Holidays. I am making Holiday cards for the VA in Virginia so the wounded Vets have cards to send to their loved ones. Click here. Well I decided it would be a fun project to share with my loved ones. We made 100 cards in just a couple of hours! Valerie, Heather, Hailey, Megan, and Ruthie, thank you so much for helping me give smiles to our Vets and their families! It was so much fun, as you can see by the pictures below!

I did have a few minutes to get a little crafty this weekend. Made this Christmas ornament. Remember me telling you that I was going to make a project with my pinking shears. I used felt, stickles, prima flowers, misc. cord, brads, and heart embellishment.
Have a great week!
