DT Challenge - Family

Hi everyone.. Over at Joys Life this week the challenge was to do something about Family.
I decided to do a cute Christmas card this week.

I used paper from Kaiser Craft Silly Season Collection.. 
It has a nice bright funky Christmas feel to it..


 The word stamps and the Merry Christmas stamps come from Joys Life..
Everyday Occasions Stamps and Holiday Occasions Stamps sets.

For extra cuteness I cut out a stack of little pressies and used puffy tape to give it a little bit of lift..
Why don't you head on over to Joy's Life DT blog to check out all the other wonderful
creations from the rest of the super talented ladies..
Hope you enjoy
Happy Scrapping

This week we have been going through a whole heap of home movies from when my kiddies were toddlers. After a lot of laughing (mostly my Hubby and myself), I thought about all the pics I have of the kids that seem to be not that important but are really part of there life stories and precious moments.. So on finding this photo of my 2 eldest kids now 12 and 10 (1 and 3 in the pic) with their great Ninny, my Nan I thought it would be a perfect chance to do a special layout... My Nan has since past away and this is something very special that the kids and her shared..
I have entered this LO in Frosted Designs latest challenge to use flourishes.. go on over and check out all the amazing work over there...
Before I share the layout I just wanted to say that even photos that don't seem that important at the time can sometimes end up being very important, I love that fact that my Nans room is so much part of the pic as it really helps bring back all the wonderful memories..
Hope you Like, Happy Scrapping
