Merry and safe Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy and safe New Year
As its Christmas eve and as per normal I am way behind, which I came to that realization 3 days ago, my house is a mess the backyard was looking nice until we had a wild and windy day two days ago, so that needs attention, I'll get there I thought, Ive got three days off to get this all done before Christmas, which quickly turned into two days off. But I have again been blessed with Christmas day off, but my daughter will be working on Christmas day thou, so thoughts and thanks go out to all the people and their families who are working on Christmas day, some one has to do it as not every thing stops on Christmas.
so time to share as I'm running out of time fast, thought I would share two pages one of my son then and now, how fast has time traveled.

 I have embraced project life it is great for left over pattern paper and Meg's pattern strip  and as you seem to take a lot of photos at Christmas time its perfect.
Something not so Christmas but it has helped me choose Christmas presents, as they get older it gets harder to find presents for them.

and no I did not get him bubble wrap although I would love too.
I have used
Imaginarium Chipboard
Papers from Meg's Garden
Top hat and Automobiles
  a sneak at a design I'm working on, stay tuned in the new year for that.
 papers from Tis Christmas time Collection
Now off to clean the house and get ready for a lovely family day tomorrow.
Sending lots of Christmas Cheer
and be Safe

My take

Imaginarium are sponsors this month at  Scrap Around The World


The D T girls have created some stunning layouts based on 

the current Mood Board & optional sketch.

 I really enjoyed trying to capture the mood board with such lush colours
 This is my take
I have used texured paste and glimmer mist on my background paper 

 I have used papers from Meg's Garden
My Ode to summer Collection and Dreaming in the Meadows
hope on over and check out the other girls beautiful layouts

I have used a combination of my designs from different collections all papers available from Meg's Garden

I also have used my favorite chipboard Imaginarium
