So we set the alarm for 5am to be up before them & needless to say they only got up at 8.30am!!! We had a very relaxing day filled with good food & yummy desert!!!

All I Want For Christmas Is You - Double Page Layout

All I Want For Christmas Is You
On the 26th I spent the day scrapping all of my 2011 Christmas layouts. This is the 1st layout I finished. The reason I chose "All I Want For Christmas Is You" as my title is because hubby spent the last week walking around singing this song...The perfect title for this layout.

Naughty Or Nice?

Under The Sea 12-7-11

Under The Sea
This is my take on sketch 12-7-11 from Let's Scrap.

Kruz's school concert was in October this year & I have been waiting a while for the photos & DVD. I so love how his costume turned out & he stuck out like a sore thumb. I was hoping to get the costume back but his teacher asked if she could keep it.

I used some of the new stock we got in last week @
