When Christmas 2014 was over, I decided to get the pics scrapped as close to the event as I could. I needed to "finish" a project-- I just wanted that satisfaction! There was a bit of a delay as my big Shutterfly order was lost by Canada Post. Shutterfly (such an awesome company!) graciously replaced the order free of charge. When my pics arrived, I created THIS book. :)Enjoy!
I used CTMH CS in Glacier as a base and a gorgeous dye ink in the same shade... I also used up a partial set of Figgy Pudding CS and embellie stickers that I'd been HOARDING since Heaven only knows when. I am so satisfied with the fact that this got used up! The metal floral embellie and the "2014" number stickers on the title page are from CTMH as well.
Here we go, a set of 6x6 layouts from Christmas 2014-

We always know that when the calendar is flipped to December, Noah will begin his requests for a "Christmas tree". As soon as he starts asking, I choose the square for the first Friday in December and draw a big triangular tree on it. We label it 'Christmas Tree!' This way he knows we'll be getting the tree soon and he won't have to ask about it so many times! He loves the tree and decorating it. Our family always goes together down to the old Stork's Landing on Kingston's Main Street. There we choose a tree that was freshly cut (locally) in Lake Paul. Noah always has to give the tree his "sniff of approval!" and that seals the decision for us! This year Daniel chose a tree he liked, and Noah gave the "sniff!"
Our Christmas tree, all decorated, at night: it looked so stunning!
