Santa was here!

Christmas has come and gone for another year; but relax there are just 354 days until the next one - are you shopping yet?? HA!

This is for my oldest's book pile and I'm shocked that I have a layout done for her so quickly. I am pretty far behind in my scrapping...also pretty behind in actually putting completed layouts in albums.


You can see in that picture that I have a lot of layouts to put in page protectors and then in albums. You can also see that I have boxes of protectors there just waiting to be used! (The pizza boxes are also full of layouts). Cue my embarrassment!

This is my first layout in my quest for 50 projects before purchasing any more scrappy goodness!


My inspiration was found here:
Sketch ~N~ Scrap: Sketch #72
Lasting Memories: Simple pleasures (kids waking up on Christmas morning)
Scrap Our Stash: T (tree bark paper) W (wood veneer) I (inked edges) N (numbers) E (even number of photos)
Crash Your Stash: #1 of 50

  2. Wonderful layout Darcy and great take on the challenge! What a great goal to set before shopping for more supplies...I hope you reach it! And don't be embarrassed, I have a FEW stacks of completed layouts that I need to take time to sort and put in albums. Thank you for linking up with Scrap Our Stash!
