My December in photos....

First Christmas Craft, button trees....
Gingerbread House.... Saying "Cheese" with Daddy before church...
Getting our tree... (even Oscar went to the tree farm)
Getting out the red & white ornaments...
Ezra loves the ornaments (between him and Oscar there are always a ton on the ground)Every once in a while I can get them to pose by the tree (this is as we were decorating)... My "free" starbucks advent calendar. I asked for the display model and there was a small mess-up on the numbers and they gave it to me :)

And of course, December wouldn't be complete without sick kids. Poor Ezra had pneumonia last week...

and Cameron had an eye/double ear infection 2 days later but luckily they both had a cute little puppy to snuggle with!

and we had a little PersonalScrapper party this year. It was a blast!!! Can't wait to scrap these!

December brings a lively new kit!

Wow - It is the last month of 2007. Ok, so where did this year go?? I started out with formula for Ezra and now I have a talking, busy toddler! The boys have all grown so much! Andrew is reading so well and kindergarten has been amazing for Cameron.

This kit was fun to work with but BOY it barely arrived on time!! My absolute favorite sheet of paper is the Making Memories GCountdown. Its hard to tell through the computer but there is glitter around several of the numbers. It was so fun to work with!

The Deja Views paper is very nice! This is the first time we have used them since they are started having 2-sided papers. I loved the sticker journaling pieces that matched it.
My favorite embellishment by far were the Making Memories circle bright crystal brads. There are 60 brads in 6 different colors. The layout below has several of the brads and a did a little doodling to enhance them. They look better in person! This is when Ezra was 1 week old. Even though it was in April, I felt like these colors went really well. I also cut the number 1 from that Making Memories sheet of paper :)

I cut some of my scraps into 2 inch squares for this design!
This is my favorite layout I did with the kit. It is probably because of the photo :) I also handcut holly leaves from the holly paper and outlined them in black.

This layout has a few items from the addon this month but was really simple to create:

December 2007 Kit - #49!!!
The great thing is I have not even used my whole kit yet! In fact, I hope to scrap a little more in the next few nights and use it up :)

If you have made it this far CONGRATULATIONS! I am going to draw a winner on Sunday from my post comments and send a little extra December kit grab bag to you :) (Anyone can win :) )
