Only 4 more days until Christmas! My kids are just so excited about this year and have really gotten into the whole Christmas spirit! They made Christmas chains a few weeks ago to count down the days until Christmas. The weather here has been cold but no snow. We have chances of snow on Monday through Thursday this week. Although I doubt we have a white Christmas. That is a rare thing here. Today we have a birthday party and tonight we are going to see the River of Lights down at the Bio-Park. My daughter is especially excited to see the new moving T-Rex this year.
So this week at Page Plans we had a very awesome sketch to work with this week and I hopefully worked out all the quirks of why my emails with my layouts (of course) were not getting to the Page Plan gals, Chris and Lesli. How mortified I was that they were not getting them. Even though I wasn't getting any kind of message saying otherwise. I had so much fun with this sketch. The theme was a tradition we do for the Christmas holidays. We decorate the tree and buy special ornaments to hang on the tree each year. This year I let the kids pick their own ornament. Garrett picked a Buzz Lightyear ornament and Caden picked out Rocket form the Little Einstein's. Then I picked out one for the tree too. The kids ahd so much fun decrorating the tree this year and I took some great photos. I used an antique option on iPhoto to alter the colors a bit on the pictures. I used more of that fun paper from Tinkering Ink.
So here is the sketch by Chris.
This is what I came up with.
Well I hope everyone has a great week!! Have a wonderful Christmas, Hannukah, and Kawanza!
