Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

I hope you all had a lovely day with your families, and are still enjoying some holiday (and crafting) time before the new year.

We all had a lovely time at my Mum and Dad's. Emma had far too many presents as usual, and even she got a bit fed up towards the end! 17 just from Auntie Liz alone!!

Here is a page I did before Christmas of Emma when she was about 4 months old. I used Lynne's torn aperture effect and highlighted all the swirls on the outer paper with the much loved pearl pens from Craft Den. This bouncer seat was one of the few places that baby Emma would stay put for a while without crying!!

This layout I did Monday night with some Christmas papers from Craft Den, a double layout scene of Santa and his reindeer. I thought they were very sweet for a layout of Emma's first Christmas. She was only 11 weeks old and cried almost the whole day!!

Finally, this layout I did today in 10 minute blocks in between playing at dolls house, watching Honey I Shrunk the Kids and playing Elefun!! I've had a run of Christmas layouts lately, but that's the only SB album I have left with room in it at the moment!

Pages of this Christmas to follow when I have some time!
