Imaginisce Christmas Cottage Layout...

Ok, so I was thinking I might have more time for scrapping, with the kids being on holidays, but I've hardly done any at all!! Well, nothing I can show just yet, anyway. But here is a Christmassy layout that I can share...


On Christmas day we usually go to my mum and dads for Christmas lunch, and the kids spend the entire time in the pool. They love it! I used Imaginisce Cottage Christmas papers and embellies for this. And the silver circle is from the top of a milo tin. I just put it through the cuttlebug to emboss it, and then popped a few gems on with my I-rock.


The kids are still talking about Christmas non stop. Oh, to be a child again, lol! I love that they still both firmly believe, even though my big boy is nearly 10. I'll be sad when the magic is gone, so hopefully it'll be around for a few years yet.


I put the pressies for the kids that are from me under the tree yesterday. They used to always question why they got presents from Santa, and from all the rellies, but not from me! So now, I have put a few presents under the tree for them, so they don't think I didn't get them anything. Anyway, they are very excited that these presents are sitting under the tree...


Of course there was a mad rush to see which was theirs, even though they can't open them til Christmas day. They've been shaking them, and trying to guess, lol.


And Em has been good about the presents being there, but Jack, hmmmm....Well, he worked out that his big one was lego, but he just couldn't stand not knowing, so he ripped a bit of the paper and had a peek inside. What a ratbag!!!!!! Luckily he didn't get a good enough look, and he thinks it's something that it isn't but still...! So now his presents have been removed from under the tree, and won't go back til Christmas eve.

Anyhoo, the rascals are awake now, I can here them attacking their advent calendars, so I'd better go and get some brekky happening for them. Hope you have a great day!!
