A Family Christmas

Hello and Welcome!

We had a wonderful family Christmas Eve this year. Just us. (The big extended family celebration was in Rochester at Mike's the next day.) Before we started opening gifts, I managed (with minimal groaning) to get this shot of the family all together by the tree. And Aaron was so proud of the gift he got Tyler (D&D figures).

I love this older Christmas pattern paper by Bobunny, but wanted to jazz it up. So I added Creative Embellishment's Chipboard Swirls and Frame which I heat embossed with glitter & gold embossing powder. The frame is adhered with Scrapbook Adhesive's Foam Squares. The sparkling gold and tree accents were inspired from the mood photo on the Creative Embellishment's blog.


Some of the fun Monthly Icon "chippies" by Creative Embellishments were also used, like the gifts, tiny trees (embossed with green metallic powder) and the snowflakes (painted white).

To finish off the page, red & green gems and my new Cheery Lynn Ivy diecuts were added. All the main elements were adhered with 3L's Scrapbook Adhesive's E-Z Runner Grand.
