I know I took a few weeks off, but I’m back now for the rest of the year. I decided to spend a little time with my family over the Thanksgiving break because there were so many lovely family members and friends visiting. It was a great Thanksgiving and I had a lot to be thankful for and I hope yours was as good as mine.
Now, on with the eye-candy for today’s post. This is a Christmas scrapbook page idea that I made from a sketch that was provided on the Sweet Sunday Sketch blog this week. I tweaked the sketch just a tiny bit. When you see my Christmas scrapbook page you will notice a small ornament to the right of the page, in the sketch it was supposed to be a flower of some sort. Oh, well….I guess I just wanted to be different.
I absolutely love this scrapbook page photo of my son Riley with Santa Clause. The reason why he has such as weird look on his face in because Santa caught him by surprise. Every year in December, around the second or third week of the month, the local fire department here in Richmond Hill, Georgia comes brings Santa around on the fire truck to give out candy canes to the kids in all the neighbor hoods in the area. It is so awesome. Riley was almost asleep when Santa came to visit.
I used several different Christmas scrapbook papers by several different companies to get the layered effect on the page. I cut out the circles using a fiskars circle cutter and made them look like ornaments using a cuttle bug die cut. The die cut I used was actually a decorative square punch that I cut down to look like the top of an ornament ball. The scalloped punch running next to the 2009 is a snowflake punch by Martha Stewart and the photograph of my scrapbook page doesn’t do it justice, it is beautiful.
I will also be entering this challenge into several scrapbook page challenges for the week.
I hope all of you reading this get some Christmas scrapbook page ideas to show off your most memorable photographs of the holiday season. Thanks for viewing and get to scrappin’ those scrapbooks and keepsakes.
