All I Want For Christmas

All Jack and Avery Want for Christmas

I'm feeling in the Christmas spirit today after a weekend of decorating the house and shopping for gifts.  This photo of Jack and Avery was taken two years ago and is one of my favorite holiday time photos of them.  The list to the left includes some of the things they asked Santa for that year.  What I love about this LO is that the rustic, subtle color tones really draw your focus in to the contrasting b & w photo.  I was also able to get a title, embellishments AND journaling into the page, which is always tough for me.

Merry Christmas!

My Best Friend

My Best Friend - 300


Just thinking about my sweet sister today, so thought I would do a quick post about a recent layout I did in her honor.  The photo was taken at a family reunion in Colorado last year, which was a really wonderful time for us.  

The layout itself was really fun for me because I got to focus on my relationship with my sister.  Truly, my Best Friend.  The rub on birds are from Jenni Bowlin Studio.  I loved making them face each other, because they kinda look like they're gabbing -  just like Wendie and I do.  The large circle design is a cutout from Hambly and was actually inspired by a layout I saw from a talented artist at Scrappy Chic.  I love how the design highlights another beautiful patterned paper.

Not much to say today...just looking forward to scrapbooking this weekend and finally getting the Christmas Tree up!
