Here are a few Christmas LOs I made a while back using pics from last year which we spent in Chicago.
Journaling: Not really, but this will have to do. Christmas '07;
Materials: Patterned Papers - Webster's Pages & Scenic Route; Rub-ons - Webster's Pages; Chipboard corner - Fancy Pants; Journaling tag - Jenny Bowlin; Flowers - Prima; Bling - Doodlebug; Pen - Zig; Clip - 7 Gypsies; Velvet alphabets - American Crafts; Stamp - Fontwerks; Ink - Fluid Chalk, Ancient Page; Misc - ribbon
These photos were taken exactly a year ago, right before we left for the afternoon Children's mass. If anyone knows how to get 3 kids to smile and look at the camera at the same time, please let me know asap.Title: The Equalizer
Journaling: Nothing amazes me more than the incredible power of food to bring people together. And this is no more evedent than during the Holiday season. Even when we try to remind people of the Reason for the Season, food still takes center-stage. This is why, for me, it is the great Equalizer -- everyone's reaction to seeing glorious food is the same, be they rich or poor, young or young at heart, they will ooh and aah and eat their fill, and all will be well in the world.

This was my first, and so far, only attempt, at a gingerbread house. Needless to say, it was a disaster -- haha! Too bad I wasn't able to get a kit this year but I hope to try it out again sometime -- maybe with the mini kit first.
Title: Christmas Morning
My nephews and nieces are so well-behaved that they know not to go down to the living room until they are given the go signal at around 7:30am, giving all the adults to prepare before they open their gifts. Let's see if my kids can do this tomorrow....
