Shiny new things

Im on the ball this month with the sketch challenge over at Sketchy Scrappers. We've had cooking lessons in the afternoons this week which are great as I get to relax with a coffee while the kids cook dinner :D As a result I've more spare time when we come back so I've been crafting more :)
This months sketch was very open to interpretation.
and this was how I interpereted it :) I had a lot of photos from the kids opening gifts on Christmas day, and like others who got the Like for ever kit this month I was trying to use up the sheet of glitter words we got.
I originally thought of doing the one layout below saying 'We love shiny new things' However I didn't like the impression it gave that we were all about the gifts in our house.
So I did the second one :) Saying 'but the details are most important' The journaling reads how we love to give and receive gifts, but things like going Nannys for a big family breakfast, then down to Grannies where she gives out the little bags of tablet she has made every year since we were babies, those are the things that make Christmas :)
Was a fairly simple layout as there was a lot of photos, but tried to give it detail with the embellishments.
Quite pleased with it :)
Well certainly won't be crafting tonight as have my niece Evie staying over so house is a bit crazy lol. Tomorrow kids are making chicken tikka in their lessons though so hopefully some crafting time tomorrow night ;)


  1. Lovely LO's. It's funny because as a teacher I have MORE time to scrap during the holidays (helps that my 3 are 12 and 15 YO twins)

  2. It looks fab Gemma. Great that you've adapted it to a double page xx


Thanks for your comments. :)
