Double LO Using Dear Santa Collection

No2 
While Kruz had his afternoon nap yesterday, I decided to do this LO. Ouma Miem (day-mother) had a Christmas party for the kids on the 30th of November. I chose my favorites from 360 photos!!!


Kruz has been home with me from the 1st of December and everyday he asks when is he going to go to Ouma Miem? He is very upset that she is on Holiday! LOL!

Look Mom I'm Santa Claus- Single Page

Look Mom 


Well ever since I started with all my Christmas projects, all Kruz can talk about is Christmas! Then on Friday night when he had a bubble bath, he decided to give him self a beard & said "Look Mom I'm Santa Claus" Well he said "Christmas Father", but the Santa Claus worked perfectly on this page


Well everyday we play 20 questions. "When is Christmas Mom?" "Where does Christmas Father live?" "Does Christmas Father have an aeroplane?" etc. etc I have been keeping notes of all his questions & will start working on this page next week sometime.


Unfortunately these papers have sold out, but the hat & sleigh can be found here....

Friends & Just Because

 


Friends 


Just Because 

Last week was so hectic and then over the weekend Kruz (my son) had 2 seizures. They say it's definitely epilepsy. I have been up & down to the doctor so I have had no time to do anything else! I decided to share these 2 layouts that I completed last week.


Well hopefully from tomorrow I can start sharing my Christmas projects with you!!!
