Christmas Morning Magic

Wow - 2010! Can you believe it?
I hope you all had a fun celebrating last night.

Today I thought I'd share the last page in my 2009 scrapbook. I make a scrapbook for each year and at the end of that year, we sit down as a family and look through all the pages. It's so fun to look back at all of the big and little moments that were captured on film. I LOVE that my kids actually read all of the journaling and look at each picture before turning the page. Now obviously it doesn't have any pictures yet - they're getting developed at Costco at this very moment. I'm just thrilled to have my final page of the year done. Now all I need to do is pick up my photos this afternoon and stick em' on!

All of the patterned papers are from the "Joyride" collection by Collage Press. I just loved all of the bright, cheerful, non-traditional Christmas colors. And SU's Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss cardstocks matched perfectly. I used a Cricut cartridge called "Winter Wonderland" for the trees, house, squirrel and poinsettia flowers. Then I added some diamond Stickles to all of the snow for a little sparkle.

The title was cut out with the "Opposites Attract" cartridge. I used SU Baha Breeze cardstock for the letters and then added a little detail with a white gel pen.

To finish off the photo mats, I added some poinsettias with copper Stickles in the middle and then popped them up with dimensionals.

I hope you get some time to be creative this weekend!
Have a good one - I'll be back on Monday.
