I used one of Em Starfaces' sketches from her Christmas reveal.
This is my layout.
Here is how I solved the case.
Scheme - the colours are all there
Evidence - Stars, circles, distressing, paint, wood, twigs,greenery.
Testimony - Christmas Prompt. (My favourite part of Christmas).
The quote on the front of the layout says. CHRISTMAS - may the gentle spirit of the Holiday Season fill your hearts with love)
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
Truth be told I am not sure how I feel about Christmas. I kind of swing from loving the whole idea of Christmas to hating the whole frenetic pace that surrounds this time of year.
I love Christmas carols - especially if they are sung by Michael Buble.
I love to decorate the Christmas tree, with decorations from our travels, gifts from friends and specially picked ornaments. I love how it twinkles at night and the shadows it casts on the floor. I love the way it looks with all the presents piled up underneath.
I love the Christmas stocking shopping, searching for that perfect fun gift.
Most of all I love the wrapping of all the gifts, Finding the right paper and ribbons, choosing my theme and then wrapping them. This year they are 'brown paper packages tied up with string'...
I love the planning of Christmas day, the colour scheme, the table settings, the menu, the flowers the little gifts that are at each person's place.
I love the anticipation that builds up at this time of the year. My family wondering what ... what will we eat, what will the table look like, who will be there, what will I get.
I love that Storm is still like a child, peeking under the tree to see how many gifts she has and her squeals of excitement as she opens them.
The best thing about Christmas for me is that my family is together and that this is the only place that they want to be on Christmas day and I hope that that never changes.
At the end of the day the loves outweigh the hates :D
Merry Christmas to each and every one of you.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
