Christmas Eve!! Exciting times! Though my two are 13 and 9, there is still much enthusiasm and wonder. The inspect the tree daily and the growing number of presents underneath. I'm fairly certain one of the two has a running tally of how many presents reside and exactly how many each member of the family has.
I'm just popping into quickly today to share the one Christmas layout I have completed this month... I began a December Daily and... well, like years past, had to surrender. For now anyway. I really want to finish for once. I just had to prioritize and, living the moments and experiencing the moments is much more important than creating them for memory. So, the pictures are amassed, the stories are recorded and another time they will committed to "the" book. Until then, here is my one layout! LOL!
Every year our elementary school hosts a Jingle Bell Jam where the kids gather in the multi-purpose room (AKA gym) and under the direction of the PE teacher, Mrs Reynolds, sing and dance with their festive bells jingling and jangling! Many years Mia has missed this event. It is held on the last day of school before Winter break and we are typically on the road. This year, we decided to remain here in Virginia so, no school missed and she was able to go!
Weeding out all the innards of this cut file was tedious... But it was SOOOOO worth it! I love the white on white. I do recommend that when one decides to undertake such tasks, one has a sharp blade in their Silhouette and a clean, newer, if not new, mat. It makes much cleaner cuts and less added hand cutting later. LOVE these files from Just Nick!
I HAD to have this Christmas collection from Fancy Pants! There aren't many this year that really captivated my NEED. This was one of four that were absolute must haves. The lack of traditional red and green was what grabbed me. I have SOOOO much red and green already. It's nice to have something different.
And that, my friends, is it from me today. Working diligently on some new projects to share at CHA and with the Cocoa Daisy release of the January kit. Be sure to check in soon as this scrappy elf has been busy!! Merry Christmas to you all!
