Merry Christmas week everyone! The kids are out of school this week and my husband is off too, so we are going to be doing lots of baking and gift wrapping, while wearing our PJs all day! (I already tried to bake Christmas cookies last week to freeze for Christmas day, but the kids mowed them down like a flock of locusts-not even any crumbs left!!!!) Now I can hardly wait until Christmas Eve-we are having a huge extended family party and then all going to Christmas Eve services together to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Always so special! And I still love watching my teens run downstairs Christmas morning to see what appeared in their stockings.
Our BBTB2 challenge this week is anything Christmas. My Holly Jolly layout is all from the CM Cheerful Seasons cartridge for Christmas pics (OK I'll confess they are for Christmas pics from LAST year…). It's been rather dark and snowy here for days, so my lighting is not the best for this layout photo, but I was really happy with how it turned out (the layout, not the lighting). I was singing Have a Holly Jolly Christmas along with my Bing Crosby Christmas CD while I made this until my hubby threatened to shoot either me or the stereo! Perhaps he needs some Christmas cookies, lol! Emergency Russian teacakes to the rescue.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get to spend some time with the people you love.
