12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #11

Oh Santa....what's not to love? :) This layout was based on a sketch from Sketch Inspiration. Sketch Inspiration is my sister's weekly sketch site. Every week (on Sunday), she posts a new sketch. If you do that sketch and enter into the online gallery on her site, you will have a chance at a great weekly prize! There's a new sketch and a new prize every week...and she is also selling her new Volume 2 sketch book! Check out the site for details. ;)

Happy Holidays!!

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #10

In 2009, my family and I went to "Holiday in the Park" at Six Flags Over Texas with some tickets I had won. The boys loved it! Especially all the cool lights and rides, and of course the cotton candy! ;)

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! :) I love watching my children open presents on Christmas morning. These pics are of my oldest son and a few of his new gifts during Christmas morning. So fun!

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #8

I love snow pictures! :) In 2009, we actually had a white Christmas here in Texas. On the day after Christmas, we were visiting at my parents' house, and my dad took the kids outside and made this cute snowman. They used a cornucopia for the hat. LOL!

Here's wishing you a Merry WHITE Christmas! :)

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #7

Does your town have Christmas traditions? Our little town has a downtown Christmas parade each year. We live in a small town...about 5,000-6,000 people...so almost all of the town comes out to watch things like this.

Thanks for taking a look!

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #6

Every year before we open presents at my in-laws' house, we take a family photo. I love looking back on these over the past years. :) I treasure them. We have lost a couple of family members in the past few years, but I love that we have all the holiday photos of everyone together. Celebrate your family this year! :)

P.S....I LOVE comments! ;)

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #5

One of my youngest son's favorite things about Christmas is when the puppet/marionette show comes to our local Art Center. These pictures were taken in 2009, when my husband was the administrator of the Art Center. We got a little "backstage pass," and Aaron was able to play with the marionettes on the stage. Totally made his day! :)

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #4

How's your Christmas shopping going? Got everyone checked off the list yet? I sure don't! I still have 5 gifts to buy for people on the list, plus a few little things for my youngest son. Hope to get that taken care of this weekend...hopefully.

Today's layout is about our Childrens' Christmas Program at our church. My youngest was a donkey for this program in 2009...how cute is he?! LOL I took a few pictures of him with some of the other kids in the play, one being my niece Brooklyn, who was cast as Mary. They did such a great job! Can't wait for this year's program. :)

This 2-pager was also made with the December kit from The Scrap Room, featuring Jillibean Soup "Christmas Eve Chowder" collection.

Merry Christmas!!! xoxoxo

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #3

Today's layout is all about those cute little Christmas crafts with the kiddos! The boys loved putting together this little "Santa's Workshop" with a kit I had bought at Target. MUCH less mess than a gingerbread house. I loved watching them CREATE! :)

Thanks for looking!!!!

Supplies used: We R Memory Keepers "Peppermint Twist" collection

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #2

For my second layout, I again used the December monthly kit from The Scrap Room. If you are looking for an awesome Christmas kit, TSR is the way to go! ;)

I love these pics of my little boy waving at Santa and Santa waving in return at our little town's downtown Christmas parade. We missed this year's parade because we were out of town, but I'm glad I got these pics from a couple years ago...and glad that I finally got them scrapped! LOL

12 Days of Christmas Layouts - #1

Hi friends!
Yeah, I know....blogging has not been my strong point lately! Honestly, I have just been really busy, and even when I've had the time to blog, I just really haven't had anything very interesting to say. LOL!

So, I decided to jump out of my blogging rut and try my hand at posting a few Christmas layouts I've been working on. I will post one (or 2) a day for the next 12 days...ending right before Christmas. I hope my pages will inspire you to get some of your own Christmas pictures scrapped and put into albums.

I LOVE Christmas products and pages, but it seems that this is the holiday I am never EVER caught up on scrappy-wise! In fact, I haven't even PRINTED OUT pics from 2010..GASP! Can you believe that?! **hanging head in shame** I have, however, caught up a bit on Christmas pics from 2009, so that's starting to make me feel a little bit better. I think the problem is that I just take WAAAAAYYYY too many pics at Christmastime. But that's not really a "problem," is it? ;)

Anyway, moving on....

Here is layout #1 for my "12 Days of Christmas Layouts" series...and it's a 2-pager!:

These pics are of my youngest son at his preschool Christmas program. How cute are all those little kiddos?! They sang several cute little songs, and since I teach at this preschool, I got to have a front-row seat for the performance. So cute! :)

All products are part of the December monthly kit from The Scrap Room!
