Family memories - a Christmas two pager

Hi folks!

Have you enjoyed the holidays so far?
I have - I'm lucky to be two weeks off (doesn't happen every year) and this Christmas we have had lot of family visiting - busy, but fun.

Christmas Eve is one of the most important days in Norway - that's when the family dress up, have a lrge meal, and open presents. This Christmas both my parents were with us, that hasn't happened since they got divorced in 1988 (!), along with my dad's wife, and one of my cousins.

Cardstock: Bazill. patterned papers & cut outs: American Craft. Cut files: Silhouette

Of course we missed my FIL, who lived with us until he passed away in July, but had a toast for him and wished him Merry Christmas in other ways (I'll scrap about that later).

Individual pages:

Sweet hubby gave me a Silhoutte Cameo for Christmas - it has been on my wish list for two years +, and I have been practicing ever after since. This lace heart, along with the words in the title, are some of the first attempts.

I rarely use holiday season lines for my creations, but this "be Merry" collection, from AC was just up my alley - they came in the December Creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook kit club


I founde the design for this two pager at Let's Scrap - sketch 12-24-14:

As you see I followed the sketch pretty close,

Have you scrapped your holiday photos yet?

Hi Hilde, fabulous LO. I'm spending some of of my holiday time visiting blogs I've neglected in way too long - I've really enjoyed catching up on all of your scrappy shares. Enjoy your silhouette - I'm very envious :)
