Here is my layout of my Darling Husband and Darling Daughter, they are very important people in my life. Love them forever. Hidden journaling on tags on the side have hand written notes to each one about how I feel about each of them.

Metal trimmings on tags under photo
Kraft paper – background cardstock
Tags on side
Circles – dots and circles under tags
Burlap around photo and Hearts shaped 5 hearts coloured with paint

As I reflect on the year,
so much has happened throughout 
this year particularly in our world, 
some good and some bad.

I have today in my life, 
my family and my friends are the 
most important to me.
My creative passion are next on my 
list of things to be thankful, 
this creative outlet is good for my soul,
I place to create something for myself and for others.

I want to wish everyone

A Merry Berry Christmas to you all.
Stay safe and God Bless you.

Here is a layout I created
of what I think the true meaning of Christmas 
is really all about.

Created with the beautiful 
"Musical Christmas Paper Collection" 
designed by Denise Boddey and 
available from Meg's Garden.
with wooden embellishments from Kasiercraft.

I will be having this week off from blogging land.

honeycomb patterns with navy blue, dark mustards and terracotta colours.
