Freehand Scraps December Kit Reveal

Yipppeee December has arrived! I am very excited for the Christmas season and the first of December is when I really get into it! It is also the day I get to show you my projects that I did with the fabulous December Kit from Freehand Scraps.

My first layout features my sweet Sienna and her Christmas letter to Santa. Now that she is five and learning to write, she was so excited to write Santa her wish list. All she asked for was a "crib life" doll...whatever those are...not sure she really knows what they are.... darn commercials :-)

Next up, is Sienna again from last year's adventures in the snow! She was throwing snow up in the air! Snow fun indeed!

And for my last layout, I took pictures of Madison in her new reindeer antlers that she will be wearing at her school Christmas concert!

I also made a couple cards...I sooo LOVE those Christmas lights.

Be sure to swing by the Freehand Scraps gallery for more inspiration from the other designers! This kit is a must have!

Off to go turn on some Christmas music! Have a SUPER day!

Freehand Scraps - Sneak Peeks!!!

Happy Monday to you! So far my week is off to a much better start than last week! (I spent the week recovering from a concussion after falling on the ice/concrete back onto my head while out on my run...OUCH) Luckily, I had an AMAZING kit from Freehand Scraps to work with! I am fortunate to be a guest designer for the December kit:-) I can only show you a few sneaks for now but I will tell you that I absolutely adore this kit!!!!!! Stay tuned.......but in the meantime go to Freehand Scraps and check out the other kits from the previous months...they are ALL fantastic!

Two Pager!!!

This layout was up on the Teresa Collins Design Team blog the other day. It felt so good to do a two page layout!!! These adorable kids belong to my neighbour...I took their pictures last year - they are all the sweetest kids - and I couldn't resist scrapping them! It is so fun to mix it up by scrapbooking someone else's family don't you find?

I am so excited for Christmas this year and can't wait to decorate! I am trying to convince my hubby to let me get a real tree this year. What kind of Christmas tree do you have? Fake or real?

Working Woman

Christmas is coming!

Well now that Halloween has come and gone, it is time to start thinking about Christmas! Here are a few of my Christmas projects that were featured on the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog HERE. Be sure to check that blog out daily...the design team has created some AMAZING projects!

I am trying to do my Christmas cards early this year so here are a couple I have come up with using Teresa Collin's Christmas Home line.

Reading "The Night Before Christmas" is a family tradition and I love that my daughter is now old enough to read it to us!!!

It is calling for snow tomorrow so that will put me even more in the Christmas spirit :-)

Also, I wanted to let you know thatMiss Arts Papercrafting School is having a free class weekend (Nov 4-6th) so be sure to check it out!!!
