Baby's First Christmas

I am in SUCH a Christmas-y mood.  I'm loving playing around with all my Christmas stash including a huge papercrafting kit I purchased from QVC at least 2 or 3 years ago.  I don't think I'd played with a single thing in the kit until now.  Its childlike whimsy and colors drew me in for this layout.

SuppliesPatterned Paper: Brenda Pinnik Designs Inc., Creative Imaginations, Me and My Big Ideas; Glitter Paper: Colorbok; Ribbon, Trim, Chipboard, Cardstock Shapes, & Brad: Brenda Pinnik Designs Inc.; Acrylic Accent: Making Memories; Die Cut: Deluxe Cuts; Rub Ons: Doodlebug Design Inc.; Dimensional Glaze: JudiKins

I have been wanting to scrap this pic of my son asleep in his first Christmas haul.  Yes, I went a bit overboard for a three-month-old.  So?!!  He was my first baby!!!!!

I'm so excited to be breaking into all my Christmas stash.  Some of this stuff is 5 or 6 years old!  Always did love these Making Memories clear frames.  I've got a ton.  I'm not sure I've ever used one before.  I adhered it to the picture with some dimensional glaze.   I've also got a ton of those Deluxe Cuts laser die cuts.  Do you ever go to the Creating Keepsakes conventions?  Deluxe Cuts always has a booth where every die cut is $1 and there's always a line a mile long.  At least, that's how it was last time I went to a convention maybe 3 years ago?  I always walked away from that booth about $40 lighter. 

Today's layout is based on this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  I can assure you I'll be reaching for this sketch over and over again!!!  Diana sure did rock it!

Check out what our wonderfully creative and talented Design Team made with this layout this week!  And please, come join us in the fun and play along.  You know we always have a yummy prize for one lucky random winner at the end of the week!  You have until next Wednesday night to play along.

So, how's your holiday shopping coming along?  I've pretty much finished up with the stuff for the kids but I still need to get stuff for everyone else on my list AND wrap everything.  The kids get out for winter break next Friday which gives me just one more week to get everything I need to get done without them done.  Whew!
