Christmas 2011

Mainly Bo Bunny's Blitzen collection (Irene's request) and very un-traditional Christmas colors.

Had fun with the Kaisercraft frame: stuck on some netting & buttons and tied on some twine - then the whole assemblage was painted blue, sprayed with various colors of Tattered Angels glimmer mists, glimmer glam, painted Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass and Rock Candy crackle paint, and Studio Calico Calico Cream (one of my fave colors). Whee!! The word "cherish" was also similarly treated but with a red base paint instead.

There's a Christmas "tree" to the left of the frame made of Maya Road canvas banners and strips of Bo Bunny papers. The ornaments are Maya Road crystals altered with rub ons from Hambly's and a tinge of distress ink. The 2 girls' pictures on the right are supposed to look like ornaments, but the effect is not obvious at all.

Oh the Dusty Attic railing!! That was a lot fun too.. Squeezing Beacon's glue all over and heating with a heat gun makes it bubble up and go all frothy, it looks just like frost!!

More Bo Bunny Blitzen and a tad of Echo Park Times & Seasons - which actually does have a rather Christmas-Sy colour scheme. I found some mini tinsel ribbon and thought it would look extraordinarily cute on the Christmas tree and sign.

And the last Christmas layout - using a mishmash of whatever is on my table - which is a real fun and quick way to scrap! Paper from American Crafts, Bo Bunny, and chipboard embellishments from Crate Paper and Prima. I love the K & Co embossed label tape-like phrase stickers! Truth be told, I have a label writer but this is so much easier (not to mention I don't have to keep thinking about my spelling lol).

In the real world, Gary had a scare just before Christmas. He fell off the stage during a set change at rehearsal. Landed on his back and leg and was admitted to MEH for X-rays and an MRI. Fortunately, no fractures and doc decided no need for MRI. Needless to say he was not able to participate in the production after all and is now home recuperating from a very sore mass of bruises. Sigh.

First Born / Zoe Gal

Fast scrapping during the holidays - just a little distressing and element arrangement.

Two layouts done on papers from DCWV French Garden stack in the same day. One for Sophie (when she was 3 months old) and one for Zoe (when she was 18 months old). Have to consciously remind myself to be fair to both girls and scrap their photos in turn!
