Merry Christmas

I would like to take this time to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas. I won't be back until after Christmas as I finsih getting ready for our company. We have our big celebration on Christmas Eve with family and friends coming for cabbage rolls and spiral cut ham, mashed potatoes and a veggie. Salad, rolls, and several kinds of cookies and bars are on offer as well as the must have egg nog. Christmas Day is devoted to our little family of 3 most years and this year we hope to go sledding after present opening. It is possible that we might not have to travel as far as we usually do as there is a bit of snow and I am hopeful it will not all melt before Friday.

I have one last project to share with you this year. This is the frame I did for Jay's Mom compling several photos of Reece from 2009. My parents took one back to Canada, they don't know that yet, but it had some shots of them with Reece during their October visit. It is made using the awesome frame from Fancy Pants and as well as paper from them. There are Basic Grey rub-ons, Making Memories paint (if you paint the back of the insert you get a glossy finish and if you paint the front - like I did in the lower right - you get a matte finish) and assorted items from my stash. Reece, 2009 and the I heart you are cut using my early Christmas present the Cricut these are out of Fancy Pants paper.

We are just starting to play with adding a watermark to all our photos and as you'll see I suck at it... but the only way I learn is by doing so there it is - wink
