I promised myself I would sit down with a cup of tea and a magazine sometime this afternoon while the baby napped. I think I am running out of time, so I'd better post quickly and get the kettle on to boil!
How about some Christmas layouts? I love this "new" Christmas-y colour combo -all of my favourites are there - pink, red, turquoise, blue & green. Doodlebug created this colourful line this season and I absolutely love it! (I will take any excuse to use fuchsia!)
This layout features a picture of my 3 little guys playing in the box our artificial Christmas tree comes out of. On decoration day, the kids frolicked in it while Kevin and I did the tree decor.
I decided this year I would try to capture Christmas in a different way. It seems like I take the same old pics at the same old events every year and my scrapbook pages look the same every time. Instead, I am trying to find the ideas that set this particular Christmas apart from all the others.
This tree-box picture captures just that.
As well as decorating the big tree in the Family room, this year Bryn and Afton each had smaller trees in their own bedrooms. As a child I had always wished a small tree of my own, but never had it. Now my children will get this experience every year.
Afton's tree is a pink, glimmery one we found at Walmart. Bryn's is a traditional green fir tree. Bryn chose green and cream ornaments for his tree and Afton picked pink and purple (of course!)
Next year, I think Camden will be old enough for a small tree of his own. I wonder what kind of tree he'll pick? Hmmmm.....I guess we'll find out 11 months from now!
