Christmas Layouts

Saturday, January 2, 2010



Well Christmas may have come and gone, but at least the photos remain! The best part ;) for a scrapbooker at least! These are my initial Christmas creations.

According to Matt was inspired by the into page of a magazine. All of the journaling was 100% written by my uber-amazing boyfriend. Simply because I asked! (I believe "I have an assignment for you" were my exact words...) His words really touched me and make this page one of my most special layouts!



As part of Matt's box in a box present, I typed out little "I love you's" to wrap around the lemons in the biggest box. He lovingly allowed me to keep them, knowing they'd be put to good use. Thus, they are the feature of this page. Along with these awesome Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses brads! I also really love the American Crafts snowflake paper. Something I discovered this holiday season? Robin's Egg Blue is a perfectly acceptable and amenable Christmas color!



These photos are by far and away my favorites from our first Christmas. It was a shared first time, to visit the River Walk in Downtown San Antonio, on Christmas day. It was quiet and chilly but a wonderful way to end our Christmas. Love the non-traditional bright colors featured in this seasons Cosmo Cricket line. Their products and my photos made for a match made in scrappers heaven.



This was a scraplift of fellow pea's Family Tree layout. I played around with it a bit more and made the trees into my cousins! Well, I really just called them trees. Jessica is my oldest and tallest cousin (Seriously, she's taller than all of our boy cousins as well!) who just happened to marry a tall man. Subsequently, their 5 kids have all ended up as mini lurches and crazy amazons! Her 15 year old daughter is already 2 inches taller than me! I love the perspective and the graphic nature of my inspiration's LO. Glad to have achieved something similar.
