Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.
The weather here was perfect. Clear skies, cool days - short sleeve weather in the sun, crisp nights. The kids were so excited and really had a blast.
Every year, by about 4pm on Christmas day I'm so ready for it all to be over. Except for the tree. I'm happy to pack up all the other decorations but never the tree. I'm always sad to see it go and it's usually the last thing I pack up. I hold off as long as I can...as long into January as I can swing it. I think it's the atmosphere. The soft light. And there are so many memories associated with the ornaments.
This layout is from last year's Scrapbook News and Review holiday sampler. I love this one. The clean and simpleness of it. The yummy colors. The gorgeous corrugated flower by Precocious Paper. The tree and title are actually on a tranparency overlaying the rest of the layout, except for the flower, of course.
I'll be sad to see the old tree go again this year but I'm so ready to move on. I have lots of reorganizing to do and finally some time to start doing it.
If I don't talk to you again, have a happy and safe New Year!
