Christmas Layout...blah!!

I'll confess I love the season but if there are two things I absolutely hate scrapping about then its Christmas and Birthdays and I hate twee titles like, HoHoHo, Tis the Season etc you get the idea!

So it was with a huff and puff that I sat down to scrapbook these photos of my eldest son for his album which incidently I do in date order hence why I scrap Christmas. I used MME Be Merry range of papers from a GottaCraft kit last year and few bits of my own stash including a gorgeous tree stamp from Autumn Leaves...see I told you I was obsessed.

Strangely enough I quite like the outcome...result!

I'm also taking part in my first card challenge, I never considered myself good enough but I was invited and nothing ventured is nothing gained and this is the 2nd challenge which is a sketch and it must have a masculine feel...oh heck, thank goodness for BG Granola!

Supplies: BG Granola patterned papers, AC ric-rak ribbon and AL stamp.

I also managed to pick up a Scrapbook Trends magazine in my local WHSmith so you won't expect anymore posts until next week will you lol.

Really like the non-traditional colours of your Christmas layout.

Your card looks great too, I always get stuck with masculine cards and yours works really well.

Ooo lovely card Claire and I've just realised I 'know' you! I took part in a CJ on UKS a while back and I have a gorgeous entry of yours...I did 'Seasons'. I don't venture much onto UKS now as I've found another addiction with SU! lol I do still scrapbook but not as much as I did.

Love your lo's by the way.

Take care and see you in the More the Merrier challenge.
