Lasting Memories: Christmas Traditions

It's getting close to Christmas! With young kids at home we are full of traditions and fun ways to make memories.

Each and every year since our first daughter was born in 2005, we have attempted a visit with Santa. I say attempted because it doesn't always work!

In this picture, the medium one decided that Santa was far too scary and chose to cozy up to one of the elves instead. My youngest was around two weeks old here. Santa was a little nervous to hold one so young, but he did a great job!

Week 16 of Project Life: Stuck on U Sketches


Another nemesis of mine!

For whatever reason, I have a huge collection of Stickles, maybe I'm distracted by the shiny?  So I put a few of them to use for the glitter challenge at Stuck on U Sketches.

Here is my 16th week of project life, complete with glitter.

I have to tell you a story about this spread.  I used my cameo for my  journaling.  The two journal cards on the right side, I was so proud that I got the writing in the proper spot!  However, when I was taking the picture, I realized that the bottom one wasn't April 23, but April 22.  Don't you hate when that happens???

Lasting Memories: Anything but snow!

It's an easy, challenge this week at Lasting Memories!  You have three full seasons worth of photos to choose from, heck even the non snowy pics from winter!

Since we spend so much time in the pool, my 'go to' photos are swimming related.

I used sketch #31 from the now closed 2 Broke Girls blog.

Week 14 of Project Life: Stuck on U Sketches

Fourteen weeks in the album!  I am getting there!  I really enjoy reliving each week as I get each spread done.

The challenge this week at Stuck on U Sketches is to create a shaped tag.  I've never really used a tag before so I improvised.  I may use another one or two in the future!

Lasting Memories #164: Mirror Image

When I was looking through my sketches, I saw the perfect one for this mirror image challenge at Lasting Memories!

Another layout from our little day trip to Santa's Village this summer.  This time for the medium girl.

I used Creative Scrappers sketch #194 for this layout.  It was the perfect sketch for this challenge!

Pumpkin Patch

Last Friday my mini went on a field trip with her class. I was not able to go, but received this photo of my girl and one of her friends. I was at a weekend crop and just had to scrap it immediately! Fortunately, my friend was able to help me out since she carted her printer along for the ride. Thanks, Lynn!

Other than the photo, my favourite thing about this layout is the little creature banner.  They are so stinking cute!  Reason #456 I love my cameo!

I used sketch #28 from the now closed 2 Broke Girls challenge blog.

I am linking this up with Hiding in My Craft Room: Fall Colours.
