I did do a couple of Christmas pages so I AM feeling the Christmas spirit moving I just need to get motivated to sit down and write up the cards!
The lovely and talented KateF very kindly let me have a play with her GORGEOUS Stocking Stuffer Grab bag which is just jam packed with some of the most fabulous stuff. My special favorite is the Raining Deers kit - yes there is a whole kit in that grab bag ACTUALLY there are !!!! Check it out here! Or click the preview ...
Isn't the preview cute? Dawn Inskip, one of our clever designers at PBP designed it for the Stocking Stuffers! So cute!!
The minute I saw Kate's bag I knew exactly what I was going to do with it! Now I don't usually scrap myself because the girls are much prettier than me but it was a story that had to be told ROFL!
I had to do the fun Sing-A-Song of Christmas Challenge at Pickleberrypop and of course I had to scrap my all time favorite song - Silent Night. Silent Night was always a favorite of mine when it came to Carol by Candlelight nights and I would always sing as loudly as I could so that I could hit the high notes . But when I had Bella the song became more than just a lovely Christmas Carol – it became a symbol of the beauty, hope and innocence of children – and it became even more special to me.
And my last bit of scrapping for the week is this page I did for the latest Pickle Jar Challenge that wanted us to scrap about our traditions at Christmas. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is the placing of the Angel on the tree. One of the girls gets to put it on the tree and the other one takes it off after Christmas. The next year they swap over. Part of the tradition is that my DH has to lift them up so that they can reach the top. I noticed this year that Bella is getting a bit big for the lifting part of this particular tradition
Placing the Angel
