Christmas Layout

I love to scrapbook my life, and in particular my two darling grand-daughters. They were part of a large family house party this year, and although I made the little book below to record that event, I wanted to make a separate layout for the album which records the girls' life.

I used yet more of my scraps to make this, still on the same red and green theme as before. I've just become a Stampin Up demonstrator, and used my SU scallop punch to good effect here - it reminded me of a Christmas wreath.

Rather than party dresses, which they might never wear again, my daughter bought the girls dressing up outfits - a Christmas pudding and an angel (chosen by them)! They nearly caused a riot when they went to the Christmas morning service at church dressed like this. Happy Days.

Rosie - I posted this same comment on Christmas Eve - go figure, I'm sure it got lost in the Holiday hub-bub so I wanted to make sure that you know that I've nominated you for the One Lovely Blog award you can see the post at my blog on the post of 12/23

Thanks for sharing your work and especially sharing your techniques - it's really helpful to those of us who feel creatively challenged!
