Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays Everyone!!! I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season! I know I am!! (that would be why I've been slacking on the blog lately - spending quality time with the fam :) ) But I am here today to share some of the layouts I've created in the past 3 weeks. Check them out:

My first one up is with a gorgeous Christmas kit by Sarah Bennett Designs. This month she is guesting at Scrap Matters and she has this kit - Old Time Christmas - in her store there.

Don't you just love the panda bears in this next kit! I know I do :) I used Ziggle Designs Fortune Panda for this layout along with some goodies from Tracie Stroud.

This next layout was done using a FREE kit from Jennifer Fox! Yup - you read that right - FREE!! You can find it in the December DSA Enabler.

My next layout was done using a fabulous boy kit from Sarah Bennett. Tough Boy is wonderful for all those little (and big) boys in your lives! (another kit you can find at Scrap Matters)

So in my previous blog post - I had a layout where I journaled about how Blake would react when meeting Santa for the first time. And this next layout showcases one of Blake's 4 meetings with Santa :) I used Lyndsay Riches' kit Joyous Christmas.

One more fun kit from Jennifer Fox. This time she teamed up with Nikki Epperson to create Warm Winter Wishes - which worked perfect with the pics of Blake from his Christmas photo shoot!

And my final layout! This I created for the December Template Challenge over at Scrap Orchard. And guess what?! I created the template! I had a ton of fun making the template - so please stop by Scrap Orchard and play along! (for the layout I used Santa and Friends by Amanda Heimann and Ziggle Designs - along with a few elements from the December Mega - Tis The Season)

So that's it for today! Hopefully next time I won't wait 3 weeks in between blog posts....Have a Happy New Year if I don't post before Friday! lol

I've got about 7 layouts to share with ya'll today! Some are from last week and some are from this week. Oh - and I have fabulous news to share too! Jennifer Fox asked me to stay on her team!!!! YAY :) I am so excited to continue to work with her designs!

Alright on to the layouts!

My first layout was done for a challenge over at Scrap Orchard. It was the mystery challenge and we had to scrap about something we are thankful for - and of course, I am so thankful for Blake! I used Fall Frolic by Amanda Heimann & Jennifer Fox.

This layout showcases some goodies from Sarah Bennett. She recently released some amazing shape templates (Cut It Out Vol. 2) and they worked perfect for this layout! I also used her collab kit Wild Oats.

This layout was for another challenge at Scrap Orchard. While home for Thanksgiving I searched thru some boxes of pics to find ones to scan and bring home to scrap. This is my first page with those pics. It's my sister and I back in 1987 (before my brothers were born). Life was definitely different then! I used Megan Turnidge's Cozy Christmas kit and her Template Set 3.

Isn't this an adorable picture?! I love it! I used DeCrow & Britt-ish Designs collab Very Merry.

Right now at Scrap Orchard we have some amazing guest designers - and Miss Tiina is one of them! I used her amazing kit OMG It's Cold to scrap one of my favorite pics from last winter.

To help slow down the holiday season and to really appreciate everyday leading up to Christmas - I've decided to do a December Daily album. This is my first page for December 1 (yes I am already behind!). I used Winter Wonderland by Zoe Pearn and Happiest Season of All by Britt-ish Designs. I can't wait to see the finished product at the end of the month!

And my last one for today uses a brand new kit from Tracie Stroud - Rustic Christmas. I thought it would be perfect for our Christmas tree pics from last year :)

Alright - until next time! Hopefully I'll be blogging more often! There are SO many cute Holiday/Winter kits out that I know I will be scrappin!
