Christmas 07

This year was a really good Christmas. We had a real tree, and some quiet family time . Rick came over in the afternoon and we had dinner with Dad and the kids. I appreciate Rick and my family so much now that I have experienced loss and loneliness in my life.
I scrapped these pages in New England Ivy , Garden Green, and Garnet cardstock from Close to my Heart. I mixed in some Floral Tapestry background paper with a bit of the twilight (teal) colour and it looks vintage and rich. I always use CTMH cardstock ... sometimes I add stickers or ribbons, but my stamped work is all Close to my Heart acrylix. I can see where I am stamping and the images are crisp. I stamped the brackets and flourishes with Love Flourishes and went over them with Sakura metallic gel pen. I also added some Stickles (addictive glitter) to the stickers and ornaments.

I copied some of Julia's corner embellishments with brads... she inspires me. Julia also gave me the large chipboard ornaments that inspired the colour scheme.

Yes it is just 10 min east of Sarnia. Where do you live? I like meeting new Scrapbook friends.
