Happy and content :) (warning, christmas content!)

Well today finds me feeling very happy and content :) Its a seriously miserable day outside but I'm nice and warm, have a good TV show to watch and ordered a couple of xmas gifts this morning with vouchers so saved over £40 :D
I know I know it's only October, but I like to get it all done and dusted before December so that I can just enjoy the run up without panicking that I haven't got the kids 'must have' gift they've asked Santa for. November is full of day trips and charity events so trust me my time will run out quick!
Still on Christmas, a challenge over at Sketchy scrappers on facebook was to do a Christmas themed layout (guess who set that one hehe) I had lots of scraps sitting about so decided to make a wreath style layout.
Blurry photo but I love this layout. The kids are in their 'Christmas PJs' which the elf always brings on Christmas eve.
I see these Christmas eve boxes are all the range now. Boxes with new pjs, a dvd, some sweets etc. My Mum did those for me and my sister when we were kids and I do them for mine. Obviously we were ahead of the trend!
Think the elf decided she liked Caitlins Anna nightie however as its since vanished into thin air!


  1. I really like that wreath. Very effective. I do the Christmas Eve thing too. PJs, dvd (videos when they were younger!) and popcorn, hot choc, marshmallows and candy canes.

  2. Great layout for using up scraps - we always got new Christmas PJs and I still have to do that every year, I will take my Christmas PJs on the cruise but we will be in Maderia by then so it might be a bit too hot to wear them until we do the home leg. I am really behind with all the Sketchy Scrappers stuff at the moment - hope to start catching up next month once my next fundraiser is over with.

  3. That's a great idea for a Christmas page. Will have to pinch that!


Thanks for your comments. :)
