Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!

A late, but warm wish to you from me!

The photo is from our Christmas Eve and my mom's Christmas tree. I've edited it a bit; loved that brightly colored Christmas decoration and wanted the surroundings to be less bright so I added a sepia layer and did some erasing.... ;) The gift in the background was the largest gift under our tree - and the first one my kid decided to open. No surprise there - LOL. He loved what was inside it, though, and we both had a wonderful Christmas celebration at my parents place.

Hope you enjoy the holidays!

Hugs :D

2 happy guys

I'm late, but finally finished with the LO for my ct-assignment this week.

I got to play with the gorgeous Winter Bliss kit by designs by Mel; love the purple and lilac of this :D

We put up our purple heart at the beginning of Advent, that and the stars (light) in the windows, is a most for me during the 4 weeks before Christmas. Here Grandpa is helping MT put the heart back in place; a couple of happy guys!

my wise man

I've had almost no time for scrapping lately, but tonight I set out to do a quick one with MT as a wise man. He got to be one when he went with me at work instead of going to the kindergarten/preschool. Lucky guy!

I'm so tired, must go to bed soon - have services with the school in the morning. Advent is a busy time around here. Night!

faith; ct-scrap

Time have been so busy lately, but tonight I got some time to scrap. I don't think I ever have had so much white space in a layout before :) The shadowing almost drove me crazy, but I got it the way I wanted in the end.
This is my CT assignment at Pretty Scrappy and I used babyyaks' kit september baby.

My faith is my foundation for this life as well as the next. I used to work in that church, and took this photo of it right before I moved.

Better get some sleep.

changing season

Pretty Scrappy is (soon) out with their December collaborate: Changing Season, it is gorgeous with a lot of papers and elements in brown, cream, purple and green.

I got to scrap with it this weekend and made a LO of me(!), a brag book LO and a QP for you to download. (Yea!)
