Mistletoe - December Workshop

This month we will be creating three festive layouts using the gorgeous Mistletoe paper packet and coordinating accessories.  I do love the poinsettias in the Mistletoe level 2 assortment.  Between the three layouts I use every single accessory in the set.

This last layout is for my Christmas morning pictures.  I did use one of my favorite products, 12 inch flip flaps to add more space for pictures.  The big 5x7 photo mat on the right hand page is for the picture of Christmas morning before the excitement begins. When you flip open the flaps you get to enjoy the pictures of all the excitement.  I also used some of our new dimensional element Ornaments on this last layout.  I sponged, stamped and bedazzled the ornaments to really finish the layout.

If you would like to join the workshop group so that you can make our future layout projects leave a comment, email or call me today! All the products used on these layouts can be ordered online anytime on my website. As an added bonus with an online $20 order you will also receive a surprise D size stamp set for FREE! That is a $22.95 value.

Family Photo Shoot

My sister-in-law needed a recent family photo. We don't have a single picture with only our family in it since we had our family photos taken last fall. (that would be over a year ago) So I decided we would have a little impromptu photo shoot in our family room. Well Brock, Mikele, Kassie and even Jason were cooperative. Allie on the other hand had her own ideas of how this would work. The kids were sitting along the wall waiting for everyone and she decided that would also be where she was sitting for the pictures. Of course that didn't work very well because she is the smallest and needed to be in the front.

So we tried to get her to want to sit on Jason's lap by making her jealous of Kassie.

Ya, she didn't care.

Then Allie would go play with her toys or wander around the room until she heard the timer beeping on the camera. Then she would come running over and find her spot.  After the picture was taken she would get up and go check out the picture on the back of the camera with me and then we would start the whole thing all over again.

Luckily we did end up with a cute photo of the whole group looking at the camera and almost everyone is smiling.  My Mom always says that family pictures must be really important or they wouldn't be near as hard to pull off.  I totally agree!
