Show & Tell Monday - IT'S CHRISTMAS XXX

Hello, hello and a Very Merry Christmas to you xxx

So what is a girl to do when she wakes up at 4:30 on Christmas morning  and knows it will be at least another 4 hours until anyone else stirs?  Why, make a scrapbook page and write a blog post of course :0)

I can only show you a little peep of the page as it is for my January DT for ATDML.  I was sent some Bo Bunny - Winter Wishes.  One of the papers was a beautiful silver foiled vellum.  I wanted to use this on a page featuring a photo I took of Kiera during the recent snow.  I also used my Silhouette Cameo to draw and cut some snowflakes onto plain vellum.

For November's DT kit I had some Christmas ranges to play with.  One I loved (Simple Stories - Very Merry) and on first site one I didn't (Bo Bunny - Christmas Carousel)!

First I made a page using a piece of the Simple Stories paper but used it for a non-Christmas page with a photos of when we took Gracia to Betty's in York for a celebratory afternoon tea to celebrate her graduation.




I then made a page using the Christmas Carousel and in the end really liked this page and the paper range.





My final page also used Very Merry and was a scraplift of this page by Katherine Sutton.






I have also made a little book to record some of our Christmas adventures this year and will do a little Show and Tell on that once it is finished.

The final offering I have for my show and tell today is this page which I made in response to a sketch challenge using this


sketch and my December Mind The Scrap Kit. 


Well I had better go and tidy the dining room table ready for Christmas breakfast.

I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year xxx

Ops I forgot - a little bit of exciting news here.

Reasons To Be Cheerful

* It's Christmas Day and I am looking forward to my lovely family (including Kiera, of course) opening the gifts I have for them .

*We will have spent 10 days, over the Christmas Period with Gracia & Josh.

*Although I love my new job, not having to go back in until the 3rd January is a very nice feeling.
